This is a strong are of specialization for our clinic. Addiction is becoming one of the number one issues of this country. There is often a genetic potential and can be greatly influenced by early development in dysfunctional families. Addiction is often a coping mechanism to deal with mental health or other issues. Any coping mechanism that is taken to the point where it becomes a problem (out of control), can become a problem, including alcohol, substances, gambling, food, anger, and sex.

I have experience working with people on all types of addictions. I am comfortable working from an abstinence or a harm reduction model. People struggling with addictions benefit from my use of Solution Focused Therapy and Narrative Therapy to reduce the influence of shame and to increase the level of agency they feel they have over their addiction.

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.

In 55104 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

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.

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.

If you're concerned with a loved one's use/abuse/dependence on a substance, it can be a scary place. How can you help? How can you get them to stop? How can you get control of your own life again? Over the years, I've helped clients figure out their role when they love someone who uses substances. I will help you figure out your options and make a plan that makes sense for your unique situation. If you're the one using or has hurt others with your past use, you will learn how to take better care of yourself and those you love.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55409 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

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.
