Licensed Professional Counselor

Dealing with an addiction can be very daunting and lonely. In therapy one primary focus is to provide a safe and comfortable environment that allows open dialogue for clients to express and share how addiction has negatively impacted various areas of their lives. In treatment I will collaborate with clients to develop a support group in addition to establishing realistic and achievable goals that are conducive to maintaining recovery. To schedule an appointment with Akeem call TR Counseling & Wellness at 203-819-7650.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

Psychotherapy and Counseling

In 11743 - Nearby to Shirley.

This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

Therapist

In 06525 - Nearby to Shirley.

Addiction is known to hijack the brain and cause it to accept maladaptive behaviors as normal. The process of addiction can result in consequences such as: low self-esteem, guilt, shame, criminal activity, etc. I will provide a non-judgement and therapeutic environment to begin the recovery process. Together we will begin to identify triggers, coping and social skills to decrease risks and vulnerabilities for relapse. To schedule an appointment with Sheiketha call TR Counseling & Wellness at 203-819-7650.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 06880 - Nearby to Shirley.

My approach to clients with addiction issues depends on the nature of the addiction (alcohol and drugs, gambling, internet, smoking, and other compulsive behaviors). Treatment includes addressing the client's denial, employing cognitive behavior therapy, sending clients to AA or NA, and may also involve bringing in members of the client's family to help clients understand the ramifications of their addictions and the necessity to change.

Christina Thompson, LPC
Addiction Counselor

Christina Thompson, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06525 - Nearby to Shirley.

I offer counseling services unique to substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Addictions can be difficult to face and manage, and family members and friends may not understand what you are going through. In my addiction counseling, I affirm the negative emotions that tend to come with substance use and offer you a safe place to let these out. My goal is to help you identify and work through the underlying causes of addiction, while developing a plan for moving towards a more fulfilling life. Addictions come in many forms and are very complex, but my role is to help guide you in managing urges, behaviors and relapse, without any judgment.

Addiction Counselor

Stacey Chernin, M.A., Psy.D., LMFT, CFT

Licensed Marriage Counselor and Family Therapist

In 11795 - Nearby to Shirley.

I provide a thorough therapy approach when it comes to various addictions. Often addictions are an indirect result of other life crises. I make certain that the client and I get to the heart of the addiction through establishing clear-cut short-term and long-term goals and addressing the root of the addiction itself. It is found that once you get to the bottom-line of why a person chose their specific addiction that by focusing on the causes, there can be strength found for working out the issues that may result in a person falling off the wagon- so that an individual will admit the problem, take initial steps for curing the problem, and omit the influences that feed the addiction.
