Any behavior taken to an obsessive level can be defined as an addiction. Compulsive shopping, gambling, watching pornography on the internet, use of substances can all be considered an addiction. I believe that in therapy is important to identify the reasons that lead to the person's addictive behavior. If a person can understand why they use drugs or gamble, they will be better able to deal with that problematic behavior. An addictive behavior doesn't develop overnight and will not go away in a day, it takes time and persistence. In therapy I use Motivational Interviewing techniques in order to motivate my clients change addictive behaviors and restore balance and well-being .

Addictions are a form of self-medication or self-soothing. When we are stressed or upset about something, we just want to 'feel good.' Addictions are the result of relying for too long on some substance or behavior that 'feels good' - and then turns into a pattern of behavior, or an addiction. The process of therapy for addictions, whether substances, internet porn or other problem behavior that has become an addiction, involves becoming aware of of the 'dis-ease' that resulted in the development of the addiction, and addressing that through your counseling.

What we become addicted to and why is less important than what the addiction is doing for us right now. We wouldn't be addicted if it wasn't serving some purpose. When we look and the emotional pain, stress, and overwhelm the addiction is helping us cope with, we get to the root of the problem. When we see that the addiction isn't a disease or a choice, we see it as a method we have been using to cope with a problem.

Addiction brings pain and chaos individuals, couples and families. I see addictions as poor and destructive coping mechanisms and work with individuals and couples to interrupt the behavior and work to process the pain underlying the behavior. I am very familiar with 12 step programs and CSAT work that help individuals and couples make sense out of the addiction. I also work within a complementary framework of attachment and the importance of strong close inter-dependent, not co-dependent relationships with the most important people in one's life, family. Call me for a consult about your particular needs and situation.
