Addiction can be very destructive for individuals and families, children and adults. It knows no demographic boundaries and therefore anyone is at risk. It is my professional opinion that individuals who struggle with addiction should not be expected to change any differently than those individuals struggling with any other issue. That is, change is a process and doesn't come overnight. Therefore providing a non-judgmental, non-confrontational, and non-adversarial therapeutic environment is paramount to achieving stated goals since shame and guilt play a key role in the cycle of addiction. Clients should be held accountable for their actions, however not shamed by their clinician.

Tobacco dependence is a form of addiction that is lethal and often difficult to kick. Most smokers who are ready to quit can be successful using a combination of nicotine patches, social support, willpower and medications available through their primary physician. However, some find that they have tried to quit many times and were unsuccessful using orthodox methods. I can help those who have tried and failed to quit using the usual methods of smoking cessation. The protocol I recommend adds a behavioral method called RS prior to the quit date and hypnosis on and just after the quit date to minimize the power of craving. (Note: I do not treat other types of addiction.)

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.

I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Supervisor (CSAT-S), having been personally trained by Dr. Patrick Carnes. I utilize a specific clinical assessment called the Sexual Dependency Inventory to assess the presence of sexual addiction. I embrace recovery as a mwans to healthy living and healthy decision making by obtaining sobriety and utilizing concrete tools to aid in the process. Recovery os about healthy living and therefore involves the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of one's life. I treat addiction using individual, couple, and group modealities. I run a group for sex addicts and another for partners of sex addicts.

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.
