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.

Addiction and chemical abuse often have impacts that extend beyond one person and are rooted in a variety of life experiences and unmet mental health needs. Chemical dependency can become detrimental not only to the individual who is using and also to the person's loved ones. It is important to acknowledge that accountability is core intervention needed to resolve the many impacts of addiction/chemical abuse issues. There must be accountability for the individual, the loved ones who may be enabling behaviors and the loved ones who recognize there is an issue however may feel uncertain or uneasy about bringing the issue up directly.

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.

Licensed Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

In 55305 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

If you are feeling controlled by your addiction and feel like you are losing your quality of life, I provide individual therapy for various addictions such as food and alcohol. While in therapy you can begin to learn about this out of control aspect of yourself. Addictions are a sign of a need for help and intervention. Coming to understand what this part of your life serves for you and it's destructiveness is part of the healing. Often shame, grief and depression inhibit the ability to reach out for help. Breaking this cylce and reaching out for professional help can be the first step to change.
