Begins With A Call, It's Time
We are a professional counseling practice and outpatient center located in Dallas, TX specializing in the treatment of sexual addiction, love addiction, pornography addiction, internet addiction, alcoholism, drug addiction and other addictive disorders.
We provide help not just for the addict, but our training and expertise provides support, encouragement and healing for the partners and families as well.
Therapists at Life Works have years of experience dealing with the issues that affect an addicted family system, including depression, anxiety, grief, loss, abuse and trauma.
We are experts at treating addiction, codependency, coaddiction and trauma. We are Level II EMDR Therapists, and Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSAT). Therapists at Life Works Recovery are recovering people also, and understand through our own pain and suffering what it means to be in the pain of addiction.
A task model for treating addiction, developed by Dr Patrick Carnes, is utillized to create a structured and dynamic approach to the treatment of addictive disorders. Individual, couples and group therapy are used to facilitate healing.
Life Works strives to provide an environment free of shame, and full of empathy and compassion. At the same time, the disease is handled with honesty and the direction necessary to break through denial and move towards serenity, peace, intimacy, honesty and integrity. We consider mental health to be defined as a committment to reality at all costs, or in other words, ownership of the obvious. Let us help you or a loved one begin to heal, today.

It became obvious it was not just the most recent griefs that underlay their intermittent depression and dysfunction but the imprint of losses long past -- yet still painfully present"
