Addiction Counseling

Addiction can take many forms and can be experienced with both substances (drugs and alcohol, for example) and behaviors (such as gambling). Typically, addiction involves repeating an activity despite the problems or negative consequences it is causing in your life. Addiction can cause changes in the brain’s wiring that make it difficult to stop the drug or behavior. But the good news is, you don’t have to figure it out on your own. If you or someone you know is suffering from an addiction, contact one of our addiction counseling specialists today to get help.

Addiction counseling is an approach to challenge the physical, emotional, and mental struggles of the disease in order to live a full life in recovery. I utilize an eclectic approach for addiction counseling involving motivational interviewing, DBT, CBT, and 12 - steps to help the individuals modify behaviors for recovery, how to cope with addictive thinking and behaviors, and develop intimate connection in relationships while in sobriety.

So called “experts” on “sexual addiction” erroneously take clients with paraphilic disorders into treatment. These paraphilic disorders, such as voyeuristic, exhibitionistic, frotteuristic , masochism, pedophilic, fetishistic, and nonconsensual behavior disorders are wrongly placed in “sexual addiction” treatment under the excuse that these behaviors often include sexual obsession. The “sex addiction” “expert” is then unable to adequately treat these, by definition, deviant behaviors.
