Need a therapist who specializes in addictions? One who knows about the mixed feelings of both wanting to continue in the addiction and also wanting to change? Sometimes the part of you who wants to stay addicted will be the most powerful, the most present, ...and that's okay. Other times you will so desperately want to climb out of the hole of addiction... and that's okay too. Thomas Schmierer, Catholic Therapist, LMFT can help you observe what it is like to be in both places at the same time using a technique called a "cognitive interweave." This technique is one of the latest methods for resolving this conflict and moving you towards freedom from your addiction. Contact Thomas today!

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.

Addiction is a complex set of behavioral, thinking, and feeling patterns that interfere with an experience of health, happiness, and love in oneself and in relationships. Addictive behavior normally has an important function for a person. Finding and making alternative lifestyle choices can be both challenging and painful. Therapy assists in looking inwards at the situation created by addictive behavior, considering more satisfying alternatives, and exploring options that will contribute to a happier life.

You cannot begin the work of releasing an addiction until you can acknowledge that you are addicted. Recognition of your own addictions requires inner work. It requires that you look clearly at the places where you lose power in your life, where you feel controlled by external circumstances. It requires going through your defenses. This approach applies to all addictions. In order to release your addiciion, it is necessary to enter your inadequacies, to recognize that they are real, an to bring them into the light of consciousness to heal. I will help you through this process so that you can find true happiness and fullfillment in your life.

My primary orientation to work with clients is on relationships, with other AND with our selves. Inner peace comes from living an authentic life. When people feel anxious about some aspect of life, places where we CAN'T know what will happen, we are vulnerable to turning to substances to feel better or not feel at all. I believe we can find ways to tolerate ambiguity and emotional discomfort to create the lives we most want.
