Bright Hearts Counseling

Jeff VanZant

M.A., LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

My present practice is focused on helping couples and individuals suffering with unwanted sexual behaviors, anger, sexual compulsiveness, pornography addiction, cybersex, emotional and physical infidelity, serial affairs, sexual anorexia, and other sexual problems, ... with a mindset of preserving and reconciling relationships whenever possible. I use Patrick Carnes' task-based sex addiction treatment model in a faith-friendly context which first assesses behavior patterns and past trauma before mapping the arousal template and sexual behavior constellations for risk areas in order to implement both relapse prevention strategies and 2nd order, long-term change techniques and healing. My therapy modalities include Reality therapy, solutions-focused therapy, Cognative Behavioral Therapy, and objects-relations (with a strong emphasis on healthy boundaries and identification of needs). Having conducted several pre-marital counseling sessions as a campus minister at the Universities of Washington and Kansas I began counseling professionally in 1993 co-facilitating men's groups and counseling individuals struggling with domestic violence, verbal abuse, and controlling behavior. I have authored two books: "Prayer In Counseling ... The Practitioner's Handbook" and "The Color Concordance".

I am a Carnes-trained sex addiction therapist who has also trained under Ted Roberts and Mark Laaser. I am also the author of "Prayer In Counseling ... The Practitioner's Handbook" and "The Color Concordance".

As a former domestic violence treatment therapist I offer a full battery of anger assessments and anger management treatment planning as well.
