Psychologists, Licensed Mental Health Counselors

It's only rarely that addiction 'just happens.' For most who have been caught in the web of addiction, it started for a reason. That reason may or may not be obvious, but through the counseling process, you can gain a deeper understanding of what drew you to substance misuse and why you continued using even when you knew it was a problem. Then you will also learn new ways meet those needs, ways that create vitality rather than disruption in your life.

Little Silver, New Jersey

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.

Addiction Counselor

Doreen Gaffney, MA, MHP, LMHC


3429 Fremont Ave N. Suite, Seattle, Washington

I have see and experienced addiction first hand and I know that it is possible to regain your life and create the life you want. I have been on the inside and the outside of addiction and I know that it takes a tremendous amount of will and support to get through it. I have worked with chemically dependent mothers in a treatment facility and the strongest emotion that haunted them daily was shame. With addiction comes shames. I can help you overcome feelings of shame by providing an objective and non-judgmental perspective of the situation that causes you to feel this way.

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.

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.

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.

Francesca Licciardi, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

2200 6th Ave , 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.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

2200 6th Avenue, Suite 606, Seattle, Washington

Addiction of any kind has a particular hold on the person experiencing it and the people around them. It can be hard to express and even harder to honestly take a look at. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential place to explore the effects of addiction. I am honest and direct but gentle with clients who are seeking help in this area. My approach is harm-reduction. Most often clients have success with cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive therapy and mindfulness. Tackling the effects of addiction and choosing to work hard to get better is a life-changing positive decision that will allow you to free yourself from unwanted behaviors and let you live the life you want.

1900 Dock Place, Suite #3, Seattle, Washington

I do counsel clients that struggle addiction but ask that clients with serious levels of addiction be willing to attend 12-step group while in therapy. I may in fact end therapy with clients who are not wiling to simultaneously seek help from behavioral programs. My reason for this is that therapy will kick up deeper levels of disruption with clients that will further elevate addiction if they are not involved in other forms of recovery. I do believe that relational therapy can heal deeper levels of addiction once stability is achieved in behavior.

A famous researcher, Dr. Kimberly Young, has shown that there are at least 5 forms of online internet addicition including gaming/gambling, pornography, shopping, chat behaviors, and compulsive research or search engine use. Thankfully, individuals can get help for these "process" addictions via a task-based model that targets effective interventions to return online and other addictive behavior to normal levels.

In my work with sex addiction treatment, people are often surprised when I tell them sex addiction isn’t about sex. You may wonder yourself, how can that be? When someone is “acting out” from their sexual behaviors and hiding in shame and secrecy, it’s easy to get distracted by the sordid sexual stories of infidelity, prostitution, pornography or other outward acts of indecency. But sex is only the vehicle or means by which the addict uses to achieve his “high”. Sex you see, is the byproduct or end result of a troubled inner condition. If therapists only focus on stopping the behavior, then that would only amount to a modicum of success. What needs to be altered is more than the external ....
