Addiction Counselor

Heather Holt, MSW, LICSW

Licensed Indépendant Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Columbus

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.

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.

Addiction Counselor

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

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.

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.

I use a harm reduction/collaborative model for dealing with addiction and substance abuse. Abstinence may be your goal but if it's not, I'll support you in structuring your life to see if you can successfully reduce your use. I'll help you process the shame and negative experiences that are part of addiction and overuse. I'll work with you to identify your needs are and how to meet them in ways that increase feeling connected and cared for, and give you a sense of pride and purpose.
