Love Addiction Therapy

Can You Break The Pattern?

Love Addiction

Love addiction or relationship addiction is real for many women. According to Kelly McDaniel, author of Ready to Heal, love addiction is much like an addiction to food, drugs, or alcohol–except the addiction is to a relationship or the promise of a relationship.

Female love addicts often describe an insatiable need to seek out affection, love, and often sex in order to gain approval or even to just feel okay. It’s part of the process of feeling better at the moment, but the cost is long-term pain.

Female love addicts flourish in counseling and therapy, finally being able to articulate the metaphorical prison that they have been in as a result of their addiction. Specifically, women gain strength and courage from exploring their thoughts and feelings in counseling. Women are finally able to share thoughts, feelings and beliefs that have been suppressed for a long time.
