My aim as an addictions counselor is to offer a compassionate and non judgmental environment where my clients feel free to learn and grow and experience healing. My perspective is to provide those struggling with addictions effective coping tools and skills and instill hope that will help them eliminate their addiction, improve their relationships and live in the freedom of long term sobriety. These skills include distraction, self soothing, understanding triggers to use, creating an action plan, increasing ones support group, and challenging the negative core permissive beliefs that allow the addiction to continue.

My approach to the treatment of addictions is unorthodox. I begin with the assumption that addictions originate with a person's attempt at solving a problem. Initially the addiction is only a small part of the puzzle until it grows to cause serious side effects. Underneath the addiction lies the root causes (e.g. stress, relationship issues, career challenges) and addictions are the way people cope. At some point, the addiction dominates; however, treatment should spend a significant time focusing on the underlying factors as well as the addiction cycle.

Sex addiction differs from any other addiction. Overcoming it is not as simple as going "cold turkey". It is about understanding where it originated for you and about learning to have a meaningful relationship with "sex". Most sex addicts enter treatment due to the fatigue of leading a "double life" or due to being caught by their loved one(s). This "bottom" is a fantastic motivator to change. Don't lose sight of what it can mean to be the person you know you want to be. Myself and the staff at Healing Solutions Counseling Center can provide the supportive services you need to heal from the inside out.

When you think about addiction you may look to the normal list of alcohol, drugs and gambling. I work with those who find a high from shopping. If you have items in your closet with the tags still attached, hide the items you purchase from loved ones, spend more time and money than you have on items that you do not need and have packages delievered numerous times of the week then you may have a shopping addiction. The other spectrum is that you may not spend all your time shopping but when you do shop, you spend more money than you intended. I have helped numerous client's learn how to be "normal" shoppers. I can help you too.

A simple definition for an addiction is: something you cannot stop on your own that is hurting you and those around you. Most of my clients are sexual addicts that are hooked on internet pornography/ masturbation, or sexually inappropriate relationships. I can help you not only stop the addition and help you to develop good healthy relationships with others. Counseling does not take forever and you can walk away from it liking yourself and being a better problem solver. www.SexCounselors.org

I do not do addition counseling. It is outside my area of expertise. But I will say that I often see someone is a couple who denies being an alcoholic despite reporting behavior that surely sounds like an addiction. The way I approach this is to ask him to "prove to me" that he or she is not addicted by not drinking for a full week (or two). If they can do this, then I conclude that we are not dealing with an addiction, but rather with something else.

Addiction involves more than a physical dependency on a drug. Even upon completion of treatment, you are at high risk of relapse when you are reintroduced to the stressors of the outside world including psychological and social factors that have a powerful effect. If you seek support/recovery and are searching for a non judgmental environment, contact me.
