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.

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.

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.

As a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor this is my Passion Area of Counseling. I work with clients to identify their “Future Vision” or what they want their life to look like 5 years down the line in their recovery. I have found over time that clients seem much more motivated to work on maintaining their recovery goals, when they have a clear vision of what they are working toward. I find it much more effective than focusing on the Consequences of Relapse Prevention. Clients are guided to develop their own customized recovery programs that they can invest in, because it is theirs. We examine addictive behavior patterns to identify potential problems areas to reduce reoccurrence.

In 55104 - Nearby to West St. Paul.

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.

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.
