Addiction is not far from any of us. We all walk a tightrope of turning to multiple things that could begin to take control of us so that we can feel okay at any given moment, even when life doesn't. I've done quite a bit of work with addictions and have written some content on the subject that has been published online and in magazines. I feel comfortable working with your addiction - whether it's sexual, substance abuse, technology/gaming or anything that feels like an uncontrollable habit. You can have victory - both big and small, as we work through this struggle together with God's guidance.

Addiction is the continued use of a mood altering substance or behavior despite adverse consequences. Therapy provides a safe and honest look at behaviors and thoughts leading up to where you are today, a step by step guide to begin to make changes, develop new social skills, and tools to repair broken relationships and a new community of supports. .

My older teen and adult clients with unhealthy relationship issues receive information on how codependency is an addiction to "feel good" chemicals released in infancy and early childhood in response to responsive, nurturing, consistent parenting. When nurturing is sporadic, a child craves the feeling of connection and being loved, and will often sacrifice their own needs later in life in order to experience those feelings again, as the idea of being alone is more devastating than not having their own needs met.

Addiction is oftentimes the result of an underlying issue. In counseling sessions, I encourage clients suffering from addiction to pinpoint the triggers that cause the addictive behaviors. We also analyze the starting point of the behavior and the emotions associated with this form of acting-out. This process may include Narrative Therapy and homework. Each client is encouraged to find his or her own path to healing by uncovering emotions and circumstances from the past. Faith in God is a major factor in the healing from addition process.

Addiction in any form whether it is sexual, internet, gambling, gaming, or substances is a disease and is neurological in nature. Our time together will be blame free and non-judgmental while we work to identify triggers and collaborate to get you the best care possible. Addictions not only effect their victims, but their families as well. Our work will include maintaining and strengthening relationships while they adjust to the changes involved in recovery.

Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist

I am not a certified addiction counselor, however, I believe therapy, along with support from out-patient services, such as AA, or NA, will help get you to the depth of the emotion that took you to this point in the first place. Many addictions are driven by the core emotion of shame. Deep shame is not guilt but a sense that "I don't deserve to be here on this planet." Shame usually starts very early in life, often unintended by our caregivers, but never the less, it can lead to destructive behaviors. I am a certified Heart Centered Hypnotherapist, which can help find the root of the shame, change the conclusion, and find healing.

It can feel like there's no way out, when you are trapped in the grips of a chemical addiction. Whether it's alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs such as cocaine/crack, methamphetamines, heroin, etc, I can help. I hold a license in addiction counseling in the state of Kansas, and have extensive experience working with women in various stages of recovery. Individual therapy is essential in making sobriety stick and experiencing a long-lasting recovery. EMDR can be an essential tool in desensitizing urges and strengthening recovery skills. Talk therapy is also valuable in tailoring each client's recovery to meet their specific needs--there is no one-size-fits-all recovery model.

I utilize DBT skills to help clients dealing with addictions. Looking at addiction from an impulse issue helps clients to realize there is a reason for what they do. Addictions can range from drug, alcohol, food, gaming/electronics, gambling, sexual and spending to name a few. Learning to use DBT skills can help the client manage impulsive behaviors.
