Gambling addiction is usually the result of multiple interconnected factors. These factors include, upbringing, the social and cultural context, mental health of the individual, as well as genetics. Gambling addiction is often associated with feelings of shame and guilt. It can lead to confusion and pain in your life. Being out of control of your gambling may lead to problems with responsibilities at home, work, or school. It can also lead to legal problems and situations that are psychically dangerous to you.
I offer a warm and safe place to engage in treatment for gambling addiction. I have clinically assessed and treated a large number of people who present with gambling addiction being their primary concern. Treatment options and length vary as personal goals and presentations vary. I draw from multiple evidenced based treatment techniques to create a multi-dimensioned plan that fits your goals. I am aware of the special challenges that different social, occupational, family, and cultural contexts can bring.
It is very important to not self-diagnosis any mental health issues associated with gambling addiction. With so much information available to us on the Internet today this can be tempting, but gambling addiction can have very real effects on your function and needs the attention of a mental health professional. Talk therapy is very effective at working with gambling addiction issues.
