Certified Training in Multiple Addictions Including Lust Addiction
86% of people with addictions suffer from more than one addiction. I have been formally trained and certified by Patrick Carnes, Ph.D., in multiple addiction treatment, specializing in lust and love addiction. My approach is non-judgmental and empathetic and I will respectfully challenge you to make appropriate behavioral changes and guide you steadfastly toward recovery.
Addiction affects the entire family. Therefore we encourage you to get individual treatment for family members, spouses as well as couple?s therapy. We also encourage your attendance at self-help groups for sex and love addiction that are modeled after Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) support groups which decrease isolation and help you maintain sobriety from addictive and compulsive behaviors anonymously.
The therapeutic model includes taking an extensive history, assessment and addressing all issues causing the addiction. We discuss how your life got out of balance and how to use your spiritual connection to live a life free of resentments, fear and anger.
When spouses agree to work on improving their relationship despite the addiction of one of the partners, we prepare the addict and spouse for disclosure, letter of atonement (teshuvah process), and turning your life over to a Higher Power. We set goals and expectations for improving your relationship and the use of mindfulness dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT) to deal with feelings, obsessive thinking and fantasizing.
I also use EMDR to rid clients of painful traumatic issues from old memories which can cause addictive patterns to reoccur subconsciously.
