Addiction Counselor

Kalpana Murthy, MBA, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Career Coach, Brain Health Coach

Within driving distance of Duluth

Addictions (substance or behavioral) are often coping mechanisms you developed early in life to help you deal with anxiety, sadness, feeling like you don't fit in, feeling you don't matter, feeling powerless, or for numbing the pain of being criticized, abandoned, neglected, abused or traumatized in some other way. Traumatic events or a life time of upsetting events are often the root cause of addiction. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in helping adults heal from and put in the past the upsetting events that contribute to their addiction. EMDR Therapy is highly effective and is offered at all the leading residential treatment programs for addiction recovery.

While I do not treat addictions specifically, I do work with the partners, family members, and other loved ones of people who suffer from an addiction. Even if you did not have issues before getting involved with someone who has an addiction, that alone will make you feel like you are crazy. I specialize in treating co-dependence and helping people get their lives back from their addicted loved one. I am familiar with the 12-step programs as well as the dynamics that people experience while in relationship with someone addicted to alcohol, sex/porn, and others.

Elizabeth Rogers, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

A psychoanalytic approach to addiction creates a safe space for you to speak to your relationship to the patterns of addiction and to the complex issues surrounding addiction. With time, you are able to reorient to enjoyment, pleasure, desire, to restructure your relationship to your self and to those around you. Psychoanalytic work for addiction does not replace crisis intervention in acute situations but can be undertaken in support of stabilization or once crisis-stabilization has been achieved.

Addiction Counselor

Wendy Dickinson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Duluth

I work a lot with clients who are dealing with addictions - whether it be to a substance, food, work, or relationships. While the specific content of an addiction might be a mystery to friends and family (they might have never used heroine) the experience of addiction is common to us all. We all, from time to time, have tried to use something or someone to make us feel better. At the core, that is what an addiction is. However, the problem it that it only works in the short run - in the long run when we use substances or people to distract us from our problems or pain, we end up crashing. I help people deal with the core issue so that they can live a purposeful, meaningful, joyful life.

Working with addiction is a large part of my practice. I have past experience running an addiction intensive outpatient group. I work with people who have addictions and family members. In therapy I give clients the knowledge and support they need to get sober and stay that way. I believe in a positive approach that stresses creating a happy full life to replace your addiction and treating additional problems, like depression, that contribute to addictions. I give clients and families help in creating a stable happy life.
