There are things that happen to us in these relationships that if we don't learn from them and we don't realize why we are picking who we are picking, we will repeat those patterns.

About Sherry Gaba

I am an LCSW, licensed psychotherapist, life, love and recovery coach who has helped hundreds of people cope with lifelong addictions. My greatest passion is helping my clients heal from their life long love addictions and the toxic energy they have been carrying from excess baggage. By releasing blocked energy, my clients create a space to attract their soul mates easily and effortlessly. I also work with clients to help them eliminate any other addictions in their lives that are keeping them from finding their greatest love including substance abuse, shopping, gambling, food, sex, co- dependency, and binge eating. If you believe you are a Love Addict, take my "Are you a Love Addict Quiz" and get your free E Book:"Filling the Empty Heart:5 Keys to Transforming Love Addiction."

With over fifteen years of experience as a clinician, I have worked at some of the top rehabilitation centers around such as the famed Promises Treatment Center in Malibu. Often people struggling with substance abuse carry with them excess trauma needing to be healed and released. Often when the energy of trauma is discharged, it creates an opportunity for my clients to attract healthy relationships into their lives.My latest book, "The Marriage and Relationship Junkie: Kicking your Obsession" is for anyone struggling with obsessive love, love addiction, and/or codependency.   My award winning book, "The Law of Sobriety" takes people on a journey from eliminating addictions to attracting purpose in their recovery process. Though I continue to work as a consultant for several of Malibu’s most high profile rehab facilities, I currently dedicates most of her time to my private practice in Westlake Village, CA and my media career. I also have many clients I work with from all over the world by phone and by skype. I am passionate about helping my clients with a supportive approach helping them release and resolve problems and change long-standing patterns.

I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley (Van Nuys), California, and had to learn the art of problem solving at a young age. At 26, I became a single mother. I had just graduated from college with a Journalism degree and was not able to pursue my passion for television and radio news to focus on raising my daughter. Once my daughter was old enough, I made the choice to go back to school and entered a master’s program and received a Masters of Social Work from the prestigious University of Southern California. I am also an expert and published author on the subjects of parenting, single parenting, divorce, and relationships.I am a contributing author to the book “Chicken Soup For the Soul: Tough Times Tough People” which highlights how a person can follow their dreams and succeed as I have highlighted my struggles from single parenting to a successful media expert, psychotherapist, and life coach. www.sherrygaba.com, sherry@sgabatherapy.com.

I have appeared on Celebrity Rehab 3, 4, and 5. I also facilitated life coaching on their subsequent spin off Sober House and Celebrity Rehab’s Sex Addiction where I worked with Love Addicts such as Rachel Uchitel, Tiger Wood's mistress and Model Amber Smith . During my filming of the series, I used my trademark sensitivity and compassion to help troubled cast members as they transitioned into their new sober lives with psychotherapy and life coaching tips. Sherry most recently appeared on the Robert Irvine Show,  CNN Headline News, Fox San Diego News, Better TV, WPIX New York, CNN Prime News, Issues with Jane Velez Mitchell on HLN, Showbiz Tonight, Joy Behar on HLN, the Bio Channel: The Tragic Side of Fame and E!News discussing Celebrity Rehab and Teen Mom on MTV. My book, “The Law of Sobriety” from HCI Publications is about recovery from addictions and alcoholism and was published in September 2010. I have also been published in Cosmopolitan Magazine, Women’s World, the Los Angeles Times Blog, New York Post, The Huffington Post, Hollywood Life, Elle On-line, E! On-line, and the New York Daily News. She has also been a guest with Martha Stewart, Jay Thomas, and Judith Regan on Sirius XM Radio. I also blog on Beliefnet.com and Counselor Magazine.
