Together though, we will map out your addiction, what triggers it, what happens when you drink and then what changes you can make. There will be ups and downs in the process, victories and mistakes but you can get your life and relationships back. Call today. Make that first step for yourself.

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.

Addictions thrive on wounding. Anger, pain, emptiness and related self-esteem issues create vacant spaces that need "filling up" with that certain "med of choice." It can be any number of "self-completers" - alcohol, drugs, sex or even work. Through "med" use, we feel momentarily and artificially safe or "salved" (like Vaseline on a new burn). Whatever the vehicle, those dependent on a thing, substance or person pursue that fleeting "fix" because they have not yet learned how to self-regulate - i.e., how to take care of themselves/love themselves and gain a stable footing from the inside out. This will be central to our work together. I am honored to journey to that special place with you!

Lloyd Whieldon, MS LPA

Licensed Psychological Associate

2219 Sawdust Rd., Suite 1101, The Woodlands, Texas

My approach to working with addictions is very different to the AA model. Behaviors that are engaged in compulsively are seen as attempts to manage emotional state. Thus, while we obviously want to reduce the frequency of any habit, we also look at the feelings and reasons that give rise to the addictive behavior. I work with alcohol and substance abuse as well as what are called process addictions - addictions to gambling, sex, pornography, Internet etc. Therapy will include motivational interviewing (to help raise awareness of the benefits of change) and relapse prevention (to help bring about sustained abstinence). Utmost respect, sensitivity and confidentiality are assured.
