Need to SUM the values in a row

I've got a stored procedure which is working well, it's purpose is to check whether or not a user has enabled or disabled certain parts of a dashboard.  The fields are all tinyint using 1/0 and I'd like to be able to add up those fields to give me a total number of active items.  Here's what I've got so far:

SELECT userShowProcess, userShowLEN, userShowContractExp, userShowWO, userShowTSO, userShowOcc, userShowRev, userShowDelinq, userShowExp
FROM tblUsers
WHERE userID = @UserID;

I'd like to get another field at the end (something like profileOptionsCount) that would add up all the fields that are set to "1" like so:
userShowProcess   userShowLEN   userShowWO   userShowTSO   userShowOcc   userShowRev   userShowDelinq   userShowExp   profileOptionsCount
---------------   -----------   ----------   -----------   -----------   -----------   --------------   -----------   -------------------
1		  0		1            1             1             0             0                0	      4
