Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I work with different types of addictions such as addiction to drugs and alcohol, addiction to sex or pornography, gambling addiction, and internet addiction. I utilize a holistic approach to support you on your path to healing. For substance abuse, I utilize both abstinence and harm reduction treatment to meet you where you are in your recovery process. I will help you identify triggers that increase your addictive behaviors, and we will develop a relapse prevention plan. I often teach relaxation techniques and assertiveness skills. I will help you access 12-Step recovery resources to assist you in your recovery.

Often people who are empathic and highly sensitive struggle with love and / or sex addiction. I have successfully worked with love addiction and codependency issues in my practice. I help explore what is under the addiction, and often times there are early childhood traumas and family dysfunctions including abuse or neglect that need to be addressed.

I specialize in helping people who are struggling with addiction. I provide a safe, empathic environment that will enable us to build a trusting relationship that you can come to depend on instead of dependency on a substance. Through our relationship, you can learn to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so that you can learn how to tolerate and regulate them without a substance.

I became a Chemical Dependency Specialist after receiving my Master's Degree in Psychology, Marriage & Family Therapy. The reasons I chose addiction as a specialty are numerous. I have experienced addiction in my family of origin and wanted to gain a better understanding on the reasoning behind it. I learned that addiction is not about having strong will. Addiction is a disease. I have attended various twelve step support groups for my own knowledge as well as supporting myself and various family members and friends. I am educated on twelve step program and principles of various groups. If you are not ready for complete abstinence I can meet your disease where you are to explore.

Most of our therapists have extensive experience working in substance abuse. We define substance abuse as the abuse of drugs and/or alcohol. This includes both legal (prescription drugs) and illegal drugs. There is quite a debate as to what constitutes substance abuse, so here are the definitions of substance dependence and substance abuse paraphrased from the (DSMIV) Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders: Substance dependence is defined as when a person continues to use the substance despite significant substance related problems and a minimum of (3) of the following signs are present at any time during the same year. 1. A tolerance has developed (not getting the ....

Why do we use less than beneficial means to make ourselves feel good, or remove painful feelings? There are many reasons, though the most probable is, is that they are easy to obtain and they act so quickly. They give us a sense of well being that we often cannot, will not or resist giving ourself. Because we are often not taught how manage the stressors of life, the reactions to disappointments, the feelings self judgement, we often use various drugs to give ourselves those "Good Sensations" What we do not see in the beginning, is that it takes more to obtain the same high when we first started, though most importantly we do not look to see what we are doing to ourselves and why.

Do you find yourself struggling with using relationships as a way to escape real life? You don’t have to be a relationship “addict” to have a pattern in relationships that ends badly each and every time. Maybe it is time to start to learn about who you really are and what you really need from a relationship. Only after you learn that can you start to choose and nurture a healthy, fulfilling, lasting relationship.

Addictions and compulsive behaviors may provide a person with a sense of power, euphoria, confidence, validation or other feelings that may otherwise be lacking in their lives, and psychotherapy is designed to help people identify uncomfortable feelings and sources of distress in order to change and grow. People who struggle with compulsivity and addiction are unlikely to conquer those behaviors unless they work to address the underlying causes of their addictive and/or compulsive behaviors, such as trauma, stress, past abuse, and so on. Working with a psychotherapist is one of the most effective treatments for managing compulsive behaviors and addictions, and there are many types of therapy suited to addressing behaviors that a person wants to change.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I work with many individuals who have either identified themselves as having addiction problems or are still in denial that they have problems with addiction....either to substances or to certain destructive activities. Either way, I work with them so that they have a realistic understanding of the destructive consequences of their actions as well as an empathic awareness of the underlying self-destructive attitudes or beliefs (or life experiences) that may have led to their addictions. Addicts need support to deal with their addictions. There is no one way to get this support, but it is vital that addicts know that they they do need support...group support and psychotherapeutic support.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.
