Dr. Forby has more than twenty years of experience in treating addictions. There are effective strategies for eliminating dependency - whether it is a chemical, substance, sex, pornography, shopping, media, or relationship. She can help you learn chain-breaking methods that will allow you to live free and whole.
IDENTIFYING YOUR ADDICTIVE PATTERNS
Nobody starts out to be an addict. Innocent choices can lead to addictive behaviors. Recognizing the chains of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that lock you into an addictive lifestyle is the first step to freedom.
AWARENESS OF ADDICTIVE THINKING
Individuals and families that are locked in addiction experience hopelessness, fear, shame, guilt, anger, and other negative emotions. Therapy sessions will help you identify the faulty thinking that produces these feelings and sustains addiction. You will learn to create and practice more realistic and self-helping belief systems.
RELAPSE PREVENTION STRATEGIES
Therapy will provide daily, step-by-step coping skills for living an addiction-free lifestyle. You will also learn how to get back on track if you have a slip or setback.
