Addiction Counseling for Gay and Lesbian Individuals

Sex Addiction Counseling

If you are having sex outside of your relationship and your partner doesn’t know about this, or your use of phone applications or pornography is risking your career, I can help. No matter the situation, my experience and training can help you gain control of your behavior and reduce your level of shame. Although this can seem like an overwhelming path with no way out, you can still rebuild your relationship and regain the trust of your partner. You can stop risking your career and regain control of your life. Call me today to learn more about how I can help.

Chemical Dependency Counseling

I don’t believe that you have to lose everything to gain control of a problem with drugs or alcohol. If you are sick of dealing with the consequences of your use of meth, alcohol, pain medications, or benzodiazepines, I can assist you in gaining control of your use. If you are sick of using, but don’t know where to begin, or you have stopped your use, but you’re worried that you might return to it, call me today. We will uncover the underlying reasons of your use, and create plans to prevent you from using again.

Shopping and Financial Addictions

If you feel constantly stressed out about money, debt, or work, I can help. I have specialized training to help people identify their levels of stress around work, shopping, debt, and gambling. Maybe you are a business owner, and you constantly are worried that your business will fail. Maybe you’re over-committing yourself to others, and having a difficult time drawing the boundaries at work. Or are you spending more money than you think that you should be on unnecessary things to cope with negative emotions in your life? If any of these things are true for you, my expertise can help.

About Gay-Affirming Addiction Counseling

Gay-affirming addiction counseling for gay and lesbian individuals is not the same as addiction counseling for our straight peers. Different societal pressures, as well as a different set of social norms make addictions challenging to identify within our community. However, this does not make it any less jeopardizing or painful. The outcome has the potential to be even more difficult to deal with because you maybe haven’t realized that your behavior was a problem until recently.

I can help you overcome any of the following compulsive behaviors:

  • Shopping
  • Workaholism
  • Gambling
  • Compulsive Sex
  • Alcohol
  • Methamphetamine
  • Pornography

Don’t wait until your behavior forces you to lose the important things in your life. Your partner may be threatening to leave, your finances may be at risk of being depleted, or you may be one secret away from losing your career. Let’s prevent this from happening together. Contact me today to see how I can help you control unwanted behaviors and the stress, shame, and depression that is associated with them.
