Kalpana Murthy, MBA, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC
Licensed Professional Counselor, Career Coach, Certified EMDR Therapist
Decatur, Georgia 30030
Addictions (substance or behavioral) are often coping mechanisms you developed early in life to help you deal with anxiety, sadness, feeling like you don't fit in, feeling you don't matter, feeling powerless, or for numbing the pain of being criticized, abandoned, neglected, abused or traumatized in some other way. Traumatic events or a life time of upsetting events are often the root cause of addiction. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in helping adults heal from and put in the past the upsetting events that contribute to their addiction. EMDR Therapy is highly effective and is offered at all the leading residential treatment programs for addiction recovery.

Addiction Therapies are approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. This therapy is augmentive to other therapies that the patient is already receiving.

While I do not treat addictions specifically, I do work with the partners, family members, and other loved ones of people who suffer from an addiction. Even if you did not have issues before getting involved with someone who has an addiction, that alone will make you feel like you are crazy. I specialize in treating co-dependence and helping people get their lives back from their addicted loved one. I am familiar with the 12-step programs as well as the dynamics that people experience while in relationship with someone addicted to alcohol, sex/porn, and others.
