Alcohol and drug issues sometimes underlie our troubles in work or homelife. It may be substance abuse, or it may be addiction. There is a difference, and treatment approaches must be adaptable. I take a practical approach, using the latest research findings, and adapting to your needs. I'll suggest options, and we'll collaborate on the plan. No need for guilt and shame here. Sometimes gambling, eating, and sex can take on addictive patterns. I can show you ways to address these also, taking into account your lifestyle and values. My approach emphasizes increasing your knowledge of how your brain works, and using that to your advantage in making changes. Let's work together on this!

If your sexual behavior is causing problems in your life or relationships, help is available. I am a certified sexual addiction therapist candidate (CSAT) and have specialized training to help assess for and treat sexual addiction. Not everyone who acts out sexually is an addict and not all addicts exhibit the same patterns. Sexual addiction is devastating and difficult to overcome just be willpower. I provide a compassionate and supportive environment to work toward recovery from unhealthy patterns, establishing sexual health, and restoring damaged relationships. Contact me and together we can assess your situation and work toward putting you back in command of your life.

I am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT) & I am a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist Candiate Level 4 0f 4 (CSAT). These two modalities work hand in hand for recovery and healing. EFT is an attachment model - helping individuals to become more securely attached to those who mean most. Sexual disorders & addiction disorders are disorders of bonding - a misguided attempt to secure attachment. When we dont have healthy, accessible people we can turn to for comfort & care, we often turn away to other things to cope & manage painful feelings. This is where addiction often forms. I work with someone who has some sobriety established to help them build secure relationship with self & others.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

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.

Weather you find yourself compulsively drinking, drugging, eating, gambling or sexually acting out, (to name a few) you know you have a problem when these behaviors are causing you difficulties in you relationships, work, or your emotionally or physical health. I use a combination of 12 steps, mindfulness and rational recovery to assist you in dealing with the voice in your head that talks you into acting in ways that you know are destructive so you can manage your mind rather than having your mind manage you.
