Love Addiction, Love Avoidance

Relational trauma, Love Addiction and Love Avoidance should not be confused with short-term emotional distress, anxiety attacks or low feelings. Anyone can feel low for a brief period of time, or have anxiety attacks once in a while, but that does not mean they are suffering from depression. Depression is much more serious than that, and is a persistent feeling of sadness, loneliness, grief, uselessness, and emotional pain. If not treated at the right time, it can lead to a person turning suicidal, and one may even try to harm himself/herself or commit suicide. Trauma often can be the cause of depression and love addiction / love avoidance issues.  As a licensed professional counselor, I offer  professional and expert love addiction therapy in Houston Texas.

What Is Love Addiction?

To put it simply, love addiction is the psychological addition to being in love with love. It often stems from childhood neglect or abuse. Love addicts seek the thrill of “falling in love” to fill the void left by past abuse and neglect.
