Addiction Counselor

Gary Mayne, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

1011 S L St. , Tacoma, Washington

To some addiction may be something that they knew was in family and they had to be careful of. To others addiction may have come out of a trauma or life crisis that was too much to handle. For others addiction could have started for any infinite number of reasons. Whether it be a void that is being filled, or an undiscovered reason for use, addiction can improve through a holisitic discussion of one's life and unique strengths.

Addiction Counselor

Paul Duke, MA, LMHC, S-PSB

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

902 Market St. Suite 310, Tacoma, Washington

Uncomfortable, powerful feelings from negative life experiences can cause some people to turn to the use of addictive subtances (alcohol, opiods, etc...) or behaviors (gambling, sexual choices, etc..) to provide relief from these feelings. When the use of these substances or behaviors increases to the point that it becomes a problem, or even unmanageable and paralyzing, then it needs to be addressed. My approach is to provide practical tools to help manage the addiction, while also unpacking the causes for the need for the substances or behaviors in the first place, and finding hope in the restoration of a life without addiction.

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.
