Addictions (substance or behavioral) are often coping mechanisms you developed early in life to help you deal with anxiety, sadness, feeling like you don't fit in, feeling you don't matter, feeling powerless, or for numbing the pain of being criticized, abandoned, neglected, abused or traumatized in some other way. Traumatic events or a life time of upsetting events are often the root cause of addiction. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in helping adults heal from and put in the past the upsetting events that contribute to their addiction. EMDR Therapy is highly effective and is offered at all the leading residential treatment programs for addiction recovery.

"The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection." (Johann Hari). In my work with clients suffering from substance abuse and addiction, we look at the root issues underlying unhealthy, compulsive behaviors. For many, histories of dysfunctional relationships - be it neglect, trauma, or codependency - create emotional wounds. Coming from an attachment theory perspective, I work with clients to heal, recover a healthy sense of self and begin the work of actualizing a stable future. I have experience working in an addiction intensive outpatient facility and feel deep respect for those who have battled for their lives by getting help and discovering freedom.

Addiction comes in many forms. Whether it's a substance, sex or technology, it can take over your mind, body and ultimately your life. I don't believe that people with addictions are bad people, I believe that they're hurting people. Addiction is the result of trying to escape pain, over and over until the addiction itself is part of the pain. I work with clients to identify and process through pain from the past or present, so that the need to escape becomes less necessary. I take your confidentiality very seriously. I do not disclose records to anyone at any time for any reason.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

I work a lot with clients who are dealing with addictions - whether it be to a substance, food, work, or relationships. While the specific content of an addiction might be a mystery to friends and family (they might have never used heroine) the experience of addiction is common to us all. We all, from time to time, have tried to use something or someone to make us feel better. At the core, that is what an addiction is. However, the problem it that it only works in the short run - in the long run when we use substances or people to distract us from our problems or pain, we end up crashing. I help people deal with the core issue so that they can live a purposeful, meaningful, joyful life.
