Addiction Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

Addiction Counselor

Dean Sims, MAR, LCDC

Addiction Recovery Counselor

Available for Online Therapy

My definition of addiction is: anything I use to avoid feeling my emotions. The substance is never the problem, it's a symptom of the problem. The problem is always a Core Recovery Issue and a Core Issue is always emotional or beliefs about myself or the world, and our beliefs are emotional (Shame, Abandonment, Betrayal, Unworthiness, Not Good Enough, etc.). I will teach you processes that will empower you in unwinding these core issues and allow you to feel and release these emotions you have been carrying around putting drugs and alcohol on top of. Then you will learn to access the real secret to long-term recovery which is to love and accept yourself.
