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.

Sex addiction is difficult for everyone involved. It affects relationships, self-esteem, and the ability to enjoy your life to the fullest. Sex addiction is rarely about sex itself, and is often rooted in deeper issues. I offer a non-judgemental environment for those with sex addiction to explore the underlying causes of their behavior, while providing a customized approach towards healing. If you’re ready to take responsibility for your life and make a change, I’m here to give you the tools you need to get in control of your addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Teresa Renner, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

3003 Judson St., Gig Harbor, Washington

I work with people who have experienced addiction, have become sober and are now ready to deal with the myriad of issues that had them acting out compulsively in the first place. While I do not work with the addict who is currently using, I can refer them for treatment, and follow up after sobriety. In specializing in sex addiction, I ask that my clients work in 12 step or similar groups in adjunct to our work together. My best work is with the person who's experienced addiction, and substantial sobriety, and now feels ready to do the "deeper" work and healing.

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.

Alison Davis, MA, LMHC, CSAT

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

13210 SE 240th St., Suite A-5, Kent, Washington

Addiction is about more than alcohol, drugs, sex, food, etc. It’s an attempt to satisfy the lack of something deeper in our lives, and to cover over our pain. Addictions not only affect the person addicted, but they wreak havoc on our relationships. I work with addicted individuals as well as their partners or family members to help everyone cope with the addiction in ways that foster healing. I work with drug and alcohol addiction, gambling and sex addiction. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). My practice provides treatment for the Sex Addict as well as their Partners, and helps couples walk through each stage of the restoration process.

Addiction Counselor

Mario White, M.A., LMHCA

Relational Therapist

843 6th St. Suite 220, Bremerton, Washington

Sexual addiction is something that destroys the relationships we really want to have. It can feel like an inevitable cycle that we have no control over. My approach to sexual addiction addresses the behavior as well as the meaning behind the sexual addiction from a spiritual perspective that leads to a different way of leaving. Life doesn't have to continue the way that is. If you are ready for change, I'd be honored to help.

Addiction Counselor

Colleen Hilton, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

600 Stewart St; Suite 220, Seattle, Washington

Sorting through substance abuse treatment options is difficult, with no guarantees, coupled with often high financial impact. Deciding which path to head down can feel like an insurmountable task. Most especially, the treatment requirements of teens and young adults are unique and often do not match up with standardized treatment programs. Our addictions therapist has over seven years experience working with adolescents and families, conducting chemical dependency assessments, and providing treatment in outpatient and inpatient settings. Call today to begin your journey towards a happier, healthier life.

Addiction Counselor

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.

Addiction Counselor

Kristene Kaim, MA, LMHC, MHP

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.

Addiction Counselor

Cyndee Baldwin, MA, LMHC

Relational Psychotherapist / Counselor

1818 Westlake Ave N, Suite 414, Seattle, Washington

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

Eric Borgh, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

411 West Mercer St, Seattle, Washington

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.

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.
