"My goal is to help you be the best you possible. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will begin to deal with long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I work with a variety of addiction issues including gambling addiction, eating disorders and addictive behaviors, and sex addiction. Also I periodically run groups for compulsive eating issues and sex/porn addictions."

I want you to feel supported in session but also know that you will be challenged and tasked with completing goals in between sessions. I greatly enjoy helping my patients reach their own goals to be successful in their life, especially in the areas of social relationships, academics, employment, and self-care."

Whether their problem is a mood disorder or a relational issue, conflict management or PTSD, compulsive eating or a communication problem, I never tire watching people emerge and transform. Believers and non-believers, almost-believers and other-believers, almost everyone agrees that personal problems arise because of the disconnection we all feel that resides in this world. So what is the solution?"

As a means of coping, Michael's mother turned to alcohol, and for fifteen years she attempted to drown her sorrows. But God is so much bigger than our circumstances! For more than two and a half decades, through Christ, Michael has lived life as an over-comer to the crippling effects of sin and guilt."

Gambling Therapists
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or Kern County gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Kern County typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in Kern County.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a Kern County gambling therapist or gambling therapists in Kern County or those experienced with gambling behaviors in Kern County.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Kern County are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Kern County

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Kern County you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Kern County and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Kern County or family therapy in Kern County.
