Addiction Counselor

Deanna Self, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

St. Charles, Missouri

Addictions are many, so the approach is to first grow in awareness of how one's addiction affects them and others. It also involves education as to what is known about the addictive cycle. Counseling is helpful because it provides a supportive environment to people who feel they have messed up "big time." It helps people understand how they have used their addiction to help them cope and then find healthy ways to cope. But it also seeks to understand what motivates the individual because that is the key to overcoming an addiction. When one gains a change of perspective, one gains motivation. People accomplish great feats when motivated. It is possible to overcome an addiction.

Addictions can manifest in just about anything: alcohol/drugs, food, sex, power, money, etc. If you see something in your life having more power than you would like, I would love to talk with you about how counseling can benefit you. In therapy, we will explore skills and strategies to assist you in interrupting these behaviors, and also focus on understanding the root causes that underlie the addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Tyler Sparks, MA, LPC, NCC, CCSAS

Licensed Professional Counselor

12166 Old Big Bend Suite 204, Saint Louis, Missouri

While I am willing and capable of treating those with substance abuse, I specialize in the treatment of sexual addiction and affair recovery. I enjoy working with men who desire to change their behaviors when it comes to unwanted or even harmful sexual acting out. I have worked with men who have been addicted to pornography, escort services, strip clubs, dating sites used for casual sexual encounters, voyeurism, exhibitionism, S&M, fetishes, serial affairs, and more. I take a trauma model stance when helping these men and their spouses. Wives: This is not your fault. His porn use is not because of you. I also work closely with a female in my practice who specializes in helping spouses/S.O.'s

Addiction Counselor

Randy McLaren, MA, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

5988 Mid Rivers Mall Dr., St. Charles, Missouri

We currently are living in a world in which the word "addiction" is cast about carelessly. Addiction, simply put "is an ongoing, out-of-control pattern of compulsive...behavior that is causing problem in...life (Sex Addiction 101, Weiss. p.1). As the definition indicates almost anything can become an addiction - food, gambling, substance abuse, alcohol, sex, and work to name just a few. My approach as a therapist is to get to the root desire or wound that drives addictive behavior. Once identified, this is where the real work and real change take place.
