LGBT Addictions Counseling
We Know How Addiction Feels
Powerlessness, broken self-trust, feelings of inadequacy, and fear characterize the haunting nature of addictions. Addictions can distort our internal world with a powerful iron fist. Feeling helpless, we wonder if our addictions will ravage our lives. We fear the proverbial “rock bottom,” wondering if we must be devastated to make significant changes. Facing an addiction doesn’t require a devastating event. It takes consistency.
In this light, battling an addiction requires that we pay attention to common moving pieces. We want to be mindful of your patterned responses, the ways you withhold your breath emotionally, and the areas where you might be starving for vitality and thrill. While giving serious attention to your internal health, we’ll also help you develop behavioral tactics to protect yourself from unwanted or harmful behaviors.

- Understand how to undo the shame that keeps the cycle going
- Learn how to acknowledge the underlying mechanisms so you can choose the behaviors you want
- Reconnect with your confidence by regaining your own trust
- Recreate the self-dialogue that is full of self-esteem and true satisfaction

Meeting the specific needs that you may have, individual sessions are tailored to fully address your challenges with caution, care, and detailed consideration. Working with your primary therapist, you’ll be able to understand the anatomy of your discomfort, what it takes to deconstruct it, and how to build happiness and peace.
Many couples get stuck in the web they created either unintentionally or subconsciously. Your couple’s therapist will be able to determine how the web was made and how to tear it down. We’ll help you communicate efficiently, honoring one another’s version of the truth, and create patterns for staying connected for the long haul.
Parents feel disrespected and frustrated while their children feel trapped and invisible. Although the ongoing power struggle keeps families hopeless, your family therapist will work to dismantle the entrenched dynamics that keep you arguing. It is our goal to ensure you know how to create connectedness, even in the most challenging circumstances.
In person therapy is one of the fastest and most effective way to experience progress towards your goals. Sitting with a therapist in a traditional setting allows for increased non-verbal communication, and can feel like a break from daily or weekly routines. If you are interested in the support and connection that in-person counseling facilitates, we would love to hear from you.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic approach that can be highly effective in treating anxiety, addictions, trauma, phobias, and ineffective relational patterns.
“It changed my life!I used to have daily anxiety, but since EMDR it’s been less intense and I feel like it’s under control.” – Isaac
