Do you control it, or does it control you? This is the question I ask when investigating addiction. I am a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) Candidate. I have had special training in the treatment of sexual addiction, including addiction to pornography. The severity of some sexual addictions is better treated in a treatment program, but often it is something that you can gain control of in a setting such as ours. I can also serve as a resource after treatment. I do in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com.

The road to addiction often begins with anxiety. I have been trained in EMDR for Addiction. I also run groups through the 12-Step Spiritual Journey. This is a blending of the Big Book of AA and the Bible. This text teaches us how to be in relationship with one another in healthy ways. Going through the text in a group setting allows use to learn from one another.

Addictions can overtake your life and pose a signficant barrier to success in multiple areas of living Whether the addiction be to shopping, alcohol, or even food, these addictive objects can be used as tools to numb your sense of feeling. My experience indicates that people battling addictions tend to be highly sensitive by nature and thus, when overwhelmed, may seek ways to lessen this intensity of feeling through means outside of themselves. Our work together can focus on building healthier ways for you to manage and cope with strong emotions, lessen both your fear and/or avoidance of emotions, promote healing and trust building, and limit the influence of addiction on your life.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Christian Counselor

In 55301 - Nearby to Brooklyn Center.

I specialize in sexual additions for men. I have been successful in helping many men stop looking at pornography on a daily basis. My approach is based on the premise that pornography is a behavior that stems from another issue. If we can address the other issue than the need for pornography or other unhealthy sexual outlets becomes unneeded. When it becomes unneeded it ends up naturally stopping. Men who have struggled to maintain free from sexual temptations are often struggling because they are improperly using that to address another need in their life. I am straight forward in how I communicate about this topic so if you are ready to be free give me a call!

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55409 - Nearby to Brooklyn Center.

I work with the families of those who are struggling with chemical dependence, including: spouses & partners, adult siblings, parents of teenagers and adults, adult children, as well as intergenerational family units, as well as couples who are struggling with the challenges of relationship and recovery. Addiction is called a family disease, because it affects the relationships of everyone in the family. If a person trying to recover, but their family isn’t working just as hard to change, chances are recovery won’t last. I work to provide education around addiction, relationships, and recovery, as well as teach new skills to deal with the anxiety that often accompanies them.

In 55104 - Nearby to Brooklyn Center.

I have experience working with individuals who struggle with mental health and chemical health. We look at where things are at and how to address each concern. I look at therapy as building a proverbial toolbox. The tools that fill this toolbox are coping skills. Some things we try will work for you while other coping skills won't. We work together to figure out what will work best for you. You will find that psychotherapy with me addresses your primary concern, not mine! I work with you to identify goals and we work to achieve those goals.
