Addiction Counselor

Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within driving distance of Lake Elsinore

In my work with clients battling addictions I work to help them discover the root causes for their addictive behaviors and find new ways to resolve them. We work collaboratively with their support system to create healthy lifestyle habits and associations, resolve old recurrent pain, set new healthier boundaries in their work and personal relationships, and find new meaning for their lives. When there are setbacks, my clients learn to explore them in a non-judgmental environment designed to help them move forward toward the sober, healthy life and relationships they are seeking.

Addictions are ways people have learned to cope and regulate difficult and painful feelings. My approach is to teach you how to talk about and process the underlying emotions which fuel your addiction, and find alternative ways of coping. No matter what the addiction, it can distract you from important relationships in your life and keep you from being the person you know you can be.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In my close to 30 years of Counseling, the majority of that time has dealt directly with some type of addiction, obsession, or some type of compulsive / impulsive substitution addiction. For years I've worked in In-patient, Out-Patient, Aftercare and Co- occurring C. D. and Alcohol Programs. I've done C.D. Assessments for the courts and a whole lot of individual C. D. counseling therapy. I've led 12 Step type groups and am well acquainted with A.A. and C.R. type groups and programs. From all of my experience I have developed expertise and ways to help people find and maintain freedom from addictions, Co-dependency, A.C.A. as well as their psychological issues.

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.

Addictions medicate being wound up inside. Tools help people release the buried feelings that actually cause addictions! Stop treating the symptoms by trying to "white knuckle it" or give yourself pep talks. Buried feelings in old wounds are the real problem so we need tools to reach the cause, not treat the symptoms! Core wounds can keep you so wound up you can't sleep, feel anxious or crave some way to relax and "get out of your head". Tools help you understand addictions at a deeper level than just trying to say no! Addicts are actually in a great deal of pain underneath the wound up/bored level of living. Really grow out of addictions. You don't need a crutch, you need a cure

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I've had an extensive amount of experience working with addictions. I practice some Psychodynamic techniques initially and throughout therapy to get to the underlying emotional aspects. Life can be extremely painful and challenging and many people think it's easier to just kill the pain with a pill, alcohol or some other negative addiction. I help to enable the client to substitute some of these negative behaviors with positive behaviors.
