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.

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.

Has your “retail therapy” gotten out of control? Perhaps you used to gamble for fun, but now you keep gambling even though the fun is long gone. Or maybe you can’t understand why you sometimes ruin a whole day of healthy eating with nighttime kitchen raids. These or other compulsive behaviors don’t need to control you any more. I am eager to talk to you about how I can help.

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.

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.

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs. Today’s addictions are understood to also include, food, sex, money, gambling, video, internet, internet games, internet chatrooms, internet pornography and other types of prolonged, repeated and out of control behaviors and actions. Addictions take over a person’s ability to have of self- control of the action which leads to the fogging of any will power to stop the addictive activity even when a matter of great importance comes in conflict with the addiction. Addictions ruin people and all relationships surrounding them. Addiction counseling explores underlying factors leading to the addiction and looks to find...(view profile to read more)

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!

Addictions, whether it be sex, food, drugs, alcohol, work, etc. can be caused by un-resolved trauma experiences. The unresolved trauma leads to an uncomfortable feeling or state which the person medicates to feel better. This medication, or behavior, soon become an addicting behavior which the person has trouble stopping. I find the best way to attack an addiction is to resolve the trauma and find a healthy substitute behavior. I help the individual resolve the trauma using the technique called EMDR. The individual can gain strength by de-isolating (having an accountability partner) and substituting a healthy, enjoyable behavior in place of the harmful addicting one.

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.

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.
