Behavioral Addiction Counseling

Unhealthy behavioral challenges can afflict anyone at any time. You can be a heavy user, dependent, or addicted. Whatever the degree, excessive behaviors make your life more difficult and unsatisfying.

Examples are:

  • Pornography
  • Gambling
  • Exercising
  • Shopping
  • Sex
  • Stealing
  • Eating
  • Video games

I am most interested in how these behaviors affect your life. They may make you feel good temporarily, but done to excess, these activities can adversely affect your relationships, your work, and your peace of mind.

Here are some signs you may have a problem:

  • Doing more than you intend to
  • Not being able to stop
  • Continuing despite negative consequences
  • Physical health problems
  • Financial problems
  • Isolating yourself from family and friends
  • Legal problems

We will focus on cutting back or eliminating these behaviors. We will also emphasize healthy replacement activities that will provide a more balanced life and make you feel better about yourself.
