Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Jim Hall, MS, Masters in Counseling, Love Addiction Expert, and founder of this site- love addiction help
Allow me to answer two questions that I believe you will want to know.
Who is Jim Hall and why would Jim be qualified to help me?
I believe this is a very important question for you to know. I won't go into to details, since that can fill up a whole book- here are 4 important qualifications I have that will give you the confidence and trust to provide the help you need:
- I've been a love addict for many years--- I know what it's like in chaotic & toxic love.
- I've achieved powerful recovery & healing- I know what it takes- to help you do the same.
- In my commitment to help you: I became a student of psychology and love addiction, and real love relationships- I studied & read countless books on addictive relationships- many hours in research- attended many professional lectures- I will help you find solutions.
- Additionally, in my passion to bring my experience to you- I have a Masters Degree in Counseling & Psychology- this further allowed me to gain more key insight in the psychology of love & relationships- to help you.
For years I had NO IDEA how to be in healthy love relationships- or attract healthy partners.
In fact, I thought I was the committed, giving, supportive partner who knew how to love.
I repeatedly attracted partners who were as unhealthy as I was. I was attracted to drama, dysfunction, and emotionally fearful & unavailable partners. I lived through one frustrating & painful relationship after another & it was wearing on me. I read self-help books, relationship books, went to a counselor- anything to figure it all out- nothing seemed to work.
The beginning of the end of Love Addiction-
My turning point in my life came after another painful end to a dysfunctional- addictive relationship-I finally hit "bottom". You might ask: What is "bottom"? "Bottom" for me was obsession, confusion, emotional pain, shock, & numbness- I lost myself! The wall of denial in my life, the denial I used all my life- finally crumbled- breaking all at once- soon after this particular relationship ended.
My family and friends COULD NOT UNDERSTAND what I was going through- why I was in such misery- over a relationship that was miserable? Well, I'll tell you what- I couldn't understand it either. I felt alone, lost, and "crazy".
During this time of my life- I learned about a Rehabilitation Center for Love Addiction - This treatment center was one of most well respected- and worldly renowned of its kind.
There was a problem, however, after looking into it-
- It was out of State- required 35 days of intensive treatment- and cost way to much for me to afford. The cost was $35,000-- YES! --$35,000. I couldn't believe it! The only place that may help me and only the rich could afford it! No one said life is fair, did they?
But I was desperate. I was in pain. I didn't care what it took or how much money I would lose- I needed and wanted change. So I scrambled and borrowed the money (financed)- called the treatment center- and flew off into the blue skies- I was angry, obsessed, and embarrassed this was happening to me over a relationship.
This was the beginning of the end of my toxic patterns of loving. Going to this rehab center was the starting point of my journey that changed my life- and is what drives me- to want to help you.
Why do I want to help you?
I realized- I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to go to this treatment center where I discovered how to love myself and love others- giving me a life of abundance. I also realized 99% of the population could never get this kind of treatment- and most therapists cannot provide the critical insight this kind of treatment center provides- and there are no other treatment centers like this that most people can afford.
I made a commitment to you.
I wanted to give people to get what I got- for much less than $35,000. I wanted to help others who want what I never thought I would achieve in my life- hope, freedom, and healthy love.
My insight and recovery continued after getting out of treatment. Because of my experience, I wanted to learn more- I read, researched, and studied everything I could about love addiction & relationships- the causes, patterns, and treatment methods. I continued in recovery- and I developed the tools and strategies that has brought me enhanced changes in my life. I went to school to get my Masters in Counseling and Psychology that also enhanced my expertise that will help you.
YEARS OF KNOWLEDGE- EXPERIENCE- & POWERFUL INSIGHT FOR YOU!
There are many who suffer from love addiction. Many suffer quietly. Some- not as intense as I did; but also many as intense as I did (hitting a "bottom"). But never the less, millions are living out relationships (and within themselves) in toxic love patterns in silent despair.
What's the solution for you?
The solution for you is a desire and willingness to do the work, learn, apply tools, gain the skills of healthy loving, and discovering your inherent self worth. That is what I help people do. And it works.
If you want a path of hope, strength, and freedom life that I've achieved- I am here to help YOU.
Take advantage & live the life of love you deserve.
