Starting Internet addiction counseling

What is Internet addiction counseling?

Internet addiction counseling is a specialized therapeutic approach designed to address and alleviate problematic or compulsive internet usage. It offers individuals a structured and supportive setting to delve into the root causes of their excessive online behaviors, which may encompass activities like social media and gaming.

How does Internet addiction counseling work?

Internet addiction therapists at Thriveworks in West Bloomfield Township, MI collaborate with you to identify and alter thought patterns and behaviors that drive your dependence, often employing cognitive-behavioral techniques. The primary objective of this counseling is to assist you in regaining control over your internet use, establishing healthier online habits, and addressing any underlying emotional or psychological issues, ultimately fostering a more balanced relationship with the digital world and enhancing overall well-being.

Is Internet addiction counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks internet addiction counseling in West Bloomfield Township is conducted both in person and virtually through online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Internet addiction counseling last?

The length of internet addiction counseling can differ depending on the person's particular requirements and the seriousness of their addiction. Typically, this form of counseling includes multiple sessions spanning from several weeks to several months. The precise number of sessions and overall therapy duration are determined through discussions with the counselor.

Need more help deciding?

It is the digital age, which means that many of us are glued to our phones or computers on a daily basis. We enjoy watching TV shows and movies instantly on streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Google+; we love the convenience of shopping for new clothes online; and we rejoice in playing video games online with our friends. These activities allow us to enjoy some of our favorite activities from the comfort of our homes. And while it’s totally okay to love and engage in these activities, there is a fine line that leads one into dangerous territory in regards to internet use.

If your internet use or activity is becoming excessive or obsessive, you might have an internet addiction.

Do I Have an Internet Addiction Problem? What Are the Symptoms?

As we mentioned above, many of us enjoy online activities like online shopping, gaming, and Netflix-watching. But it’s important to know when it’s time to log off. If you are spending so much time on the internet that it is affecting important areas of your life like work, school, or your relationships, you might have a problem with internet addiction that needs to be addressed promptly. Do any of the following symptoms sound familiar?

  • You feel lonely and isolate yourself from others

  • You keep missing work or school
  • You have been neglecting meaningful time with friends and family

I spoke with a great Therapist who was very professional and engaging. I had some questions but am not in a position to book just yet and and she took the time to answer my questions and give me some guidance. Her name was Kenya Marion and I look forward to booking sessions with her when I am able. I thank her for her time.
