Addiction Counselor

Susan Marie Guenther, Ph.D., Ph.D., LMT

Licensed Psychologist

2800 Rutland Ave, Des Moines, Iowa

This is one of my primary areas of interest and experience since I started my practice. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. I provide treatment to individuals, couples and groups and also incorporate 12 Step Program principles and attendance at meetings as ways to enhance clients' recovery. Almost all addictive behaviors are related in some way to fear and anxiety. Those issues along with Family or Origin issues are included in treatment.

Addiction Counselor

Bing Wall, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

319 Lincolnway, Ames, Iowa

I am not an addictions counselor, per se, but I am amazed how many people with addiction problems I've been able to help over the years. Why? People get into addiction problems because they are trying to meet legitimate needs in an illegitimate way. What are those legitimate needs? For most with addiction problems our relationships are hurting and we use our addiction to escape that hurt. What if we actually healed in our relationships? As people's relationships improve, their dependency on their addiction lessens. Maybe this time we can actually lick this addiction once and for all! I'm the relationship guy. I help relationships thrive. Let me help you with yours.
