We all have habits, good and bad. It's the unhealthy habits that are always the most difficult to quit. I can help you with the unhealthy urges that are affecting your health. The goal for my addiction therapy is to help people cope with their addiction and lead a more healthy empowered life. As a recovering addict myself, I have been through the process. It's hard but not impossible. My therapy helps my clients take control and eliminate the negative substances from their lives completely. I also offer family counseling and couples therapy to help repair any damage the addiction has done to the family or relationship. I have had years of success with my approach.

People use drugs, food, behavior, sex, gambling, shopping, video games, or even exercise to change try to improve our mood, to feel better or perhaps to just feel numb. The common element is that we want to feel different, and want to do so right now. Problems develop when the harm to our health, our relationship, far outweighs the relief: we persist despite ill effects. The goal of counseling here is to reduce the harm brought about by our substance use or our behaviors. Charlie uses cognitive therapy, mindfulness training, and lessons from neuroscience to find healthier ways to meet our needs. Addiction has been called a learning disorder. We need to learn better coping skills.

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.

At Center for Mental Health and Wellness we provide counseling for individuals who have recovered from addiction and substance use issues. Often mental health issues may surface once substance use has ceased. Thus, individual therapy can be a helpful way to work on some of those underlying concerns. Working with a therapist after recovery from addiction can reduce the likelihood of relapse.

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.
