Addiction is not far from any of us. We all walk a tightrope of turning to multiple things that could begin to take control of us so that we can feel okay at any given moment, even when life doesn't. I've done quite a bit of work with addictions and have written some content on the subject that has been published online and in magazines. I feel comfortable working with your addiction - whether it's sexual, substance abuse, technology/gaming or anything that feels like an uncontrollable habit. You can have victory - both big and small, as we work through this struggle together with God's guidance.

Addiction is the continued use of a mood altering substance or behavior despite adverse consequences. Therapy provides a safe and honest look at behaviors and thoughts leading up to where you are today, a step by step guide to begin to make changes, develop new social skills, and tools to repair broken relationships and a new community of supports. .

Addiction Counselor

Michelle Niehues, LMFT, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Westwood

I have experience assisting in al-anon groups, alongside with my training as a counselor. I try to help clients take responsibility and control of their addictions. Alongside, I try to help them understand the cause and effect of addiction in their life. Sometimes addiction is perpetuated by a cycle of shame. My goal is to help clients understand their pattern with addictions, so they can feel more equipped to end the pattern. I also work with clients to understand preventative factors, to hopefully avoid relapse.

Addiction Counselor

Sara Minges, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Westwood

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.

Addiction Counselor

Sherrie Pucket, LPC,NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Westwood

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.

Addiction Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Westwood

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.

Addiction Counselor

Matthew Luckenbach, DCoun, LPC., RPT, NCC, CCMHC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Westwood

Addiction is a slippery slope that can consume our lives if it gets a foothold. It is helpful to have someone to walk this through with you, hold you accountable, and discover how you can pull yourself out of the addiction. With the information age, internet and pornography addiction is taking control in more and more lives. My experience in working with addictions will allow me to work with you on addressing something that can appear has taken over your life. God wants you to be free and seeking help can lead you to that freedom.

Addiction Counselor

Barbara Cleverdon, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Westwood

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 Counselor

Jessica Willemsen, MSW, LSCSW, LMAC, LCSW

Clinical Social Worker and Addiction Counselor

Within driving distance of Westwood

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.
