Addiction Counselor

Francesca Licciardi, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

401 9th ave N, Seattle, Washington

In my practice with addiction I work with clients suffering from sexual addictions issues which cause significant effects on their relationships and overall well-being. I take a greater look at dynamics formed from the past and gratification tendencies of today which serve to counter-act emotions one attempts to avoid experiencing. My approach works to minimize the behavioral tendencies instigated by the addictive patterns and strengthen self-control and one's internal locus of power.

Addiction, whatever it is, is like "emotional Tylenol" - it provides a temporary escape from whatever it is one wants to avoid feeling or facing. Our work together involves coming to know the many parts of you and your story and the feelings and thoughts that may seem unbearable so have you reaching for your emotional "drug of choice." Through this safe and compassionate process where you can feel supported and understood while challenged to open yourself to new experiences of yourself and your self in relationship to others, hope can be born and goals feel reachable. At first it may feel overwhelming, but over time relief can come.

Addiction is a self-destructive path that destroys your relationships and life-style. Work with me to take a look at what you really want in life! I will help you gain the self awareness so that you can see that addiction is just an empty substitution for what would be gratifying to you. Addiction is just wasting your life. Confronting yourself and having the courage to step up and take responsibility will be challenging. I provide a non-judgemental and supportive presence as you work through your problem. If you're ready to move forward and leave behind your maladaptive coping mechanism, you're ready to have a better life.

The comedian Russell Brand wrote; “Drugs and alcohol are not my problem — reality is my problem. Drugs and alcohol are my solution.” It really doesn't matter if your addiction is pornography or cocaine or work or your cell phone- we all have solutions that we use to cope and deal with life. The problem is they often rob us of the good and beautiful things in life. I offer a helping hand in escaping addiction and working with the issues that our addictions mask.

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.

Have you ever gone to take a drink and known deep inside you that you don't want it, you're just doing it because it's what you do. There is some sense of compulsion to fill a hole or a need within you to be satisfied. Addiction is about more than alcohol, drugs, sex, food, etc. In a sense, we could "fill in the blank" with anything really that attempts to satisfy the lack of something deeper in our life. Addiction is worth exploring. What are the deeper needs that we are trying to satisfy with any of the things we find ourselves addicted to? Psychotherapy helps uncover those mysteries, to bring us to the core of what we really long for and desire to become.

Addiction Counselor

Kat Allen, MA, LMHC

Psychotherapist and Couples Counselor in West Seattle

7301 Bainbridge Pl SW, Seattle, Washington

Basically there are two approaches to addiction that have proved effective: the kind that empowers a client to create positive behavioral change by helping clarify triggers--especially emotional ones--and developing new patterns; and the kind that views addiction as a disease, where a therapist then helps a client shift their thinking and relationship to the disease (either through practicing a spiritual approach, or sticking purely with a cognitive-behavioral approach). The way I begin is to help a client really get to know the way they are wired and their coping mechanisms, to discover any trauma or biologically based issues, and help them frame a way of life that they want to pursue.

I believe the root of addiction is shame. Shame says I am bad, flawed, a failure, something is permanently broken in me. I don't believe that is true - but I do think that is what underlies your behavior. In treating addictions we will use Shame resilience to start noticing the precursors that lead to the thirst for your addictions. I know this is humbling, and scary - but give yourself a place to receive care. You are not beyond hope. Healthy guilt leads to repair, to ownership of the behaviors you have done and yet no self flagellation. Let's turn over that new leaf together.
