It can feel like there's no way out, when you are trapped in the grips of a chemical addiction. Whether it's alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs such as cocaine/crack, methamphetamines, heroin, etc, I can help. I hold a license in addiction counseling in the state of Kansas, and have extensive experience working with women in various stages of recovery. Individual therapy is essential in making sobriety stick and experiencing a long-lasting recovery. EMDR can be an essential tool in desensitizing urges and strengthening recovery skills. Talk therapy is also valuable in tailoring each client's recovery to meet their specific needs--there is no one-size-fits-all recovery model.

Addiction is largely about emotional regulation (fancy words for feeling balanced on the inside). We grow in regulation through relationship. Really. The brain actually grows new paths and ways of operating when in an attuned, empathic relationship with another. I work from a warm, empathic standpoint where I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), nor are tools for abstinence (also a part though) rather, formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that catalyze psychological growth and healing.

I am not a certified addiction counselor, however, I believe therapy, along with support from out-patient services, such as AA, or NA, will help get you to the depth of the emotion that took you to this point in the first place. Many addictions are driven by the core emotion of shame. Deep shame is not guilt but a sense that "I don't deserve to be here on this planet." Shame usually starts very early in life, often unintended by our caregivers, but never the less, it can lead to destructive behaviors. I am a certified Heart Centered Hypnotherapist, which can help find the root of the shame, change the conclusion, and find healing.

Addiction is oftentimes the result of an underlying issue. In counseling sessions, I encourage clients suffering from addiction to pinpoint the triggers that cause the addictive behaviors. We also analyze the starting point of the behavior and the emotions associated with this form of acting-out. This process may include Narrative Therapy and homework. Each client is encouraged to find his or her own path to healing by uncovering emotions and circumstances from the past. Faith in God is a major factor in the healing from addition process.

Sara Minges, LPC

My older teen and adult clients with unhealthy relationship issues receive information on how codependency is an addiction to "feel good" chemicals released in infancy and early childhood in response to responsive, nurturing, consistent parenting. When nurturing is sporadic, a child craves the feeling of connection and being loved, and will often sacrifice their own needs later in life in order to experience those feelings again, as the idea of being alone is more devastating than not having their own needs met.
