The internet can be a great tool for efficiency, sharing information, and connecting with others. However, for more and more individuals, internet use has become a problem.
Do you spend hours and hours aimlessly online?
Have you accidentally stayed up all night cruising the internet?
Do you feel anxious or agitated when you can't get to your email, social sites, etc?
Have you felt guilty or ashamed of your online behavior?
Do you get a "high" or a "fix" from cruising online or internet porn?
Have you deleted social apps from your phone, only to download them again?
Are your online relationships negatively impacting your face-to-face ones?
If you identity with any of these questions, your internet use may be something worth addressing. "Addiction" is a strong word that may not resonate with you, and that's ok. Perhaps you simply want to get a stronger handle on your online behavior. Working with a trained professional is a great place to start.
Online compulsive behavior often acts as a coping mechanism to distract from missing or unfulfilled needs. Together we can work to get any problematic online behavior under control, while exploring a deeper sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. You don't have to be stuck in the same old patterns anymore.
