Addiction Counselor

Jennifer Staat, Ph.D

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Oak Island

Behind every addict is a worried parent, partner, or friend. This person often feels at fault for the addict's behavior and tries to fix things. The hope is: "If I can get things right, maybe he/she will change." A roller coaster ride ensues because the addict is never pleased for very long. Dr. Staat can bring healing to the situation by helping the stressed partner. The goal is to learn to focus more on self needs while revolving less around the addict's needs. Guilt and shame can heal as addiction is discussed as a "disease" for which no one is to blame. As a result of this work, life after therapy can be more stable and enjoyable.
