Addiction often begins as a response to stresses or losses in life, but can rapidly assume a life of its own. The primary task is usually to enhance and support abstinence, although it is not helpful if this turns into a power struggle, or an opportunity for self-deception. But with abstinence as a guiding principle, it is then useful to guide toward alternate activities and social interaction (using support groups and other forms of naturally occurring help) as well as dealing with any emotional triggers of the addictive behaviour, or sequelae of the attempts to abstain. It is usually important to find out about the social/familial context, and any losses or bad feelings that occur there.

I work with individuals seeking recovery from substance abuse, problem gambling, sexual, shopping and eating addictions. Through helping you to understand what impulses impede and behaviours will support your choice of either a reduction in your addictive behaviour, or abstinence from the behaviour and use of particular substances of choice, whether they originate outside yourself in the case of substances, shopping, food and gambling, or within yourself, as in the case of sexual addictions. You can expect to work together on a recovery plan that addresses your needs, and helps you recognize and enlist the support of others when needed to help you create a life in recovery and beyond.

Through a variety of techniques I assist people in setting achievable and empowering short-term goals. Through counselling, the aim of developing healthy and adaptive skills will be a focus, and together we will begin to explore the source of the addiction while integrating the new coping strategies. Together, we will work to set longer term goals that include reconstructing damaged relationships, enabling you to accept responsibility, while at the same time releasing guilt. I can assist you to maintain sobriety and achieving the goals you desire. Several types of therapy are helpful in this process. In particular, CBT, MI, and EMDR therapy

I use a trauma-informed and client-centered approach to working with clients with substance use issues, meeting them where they are at. I support harm reduction, allowing me to fully meet you where you are in terms of your substance change goals, whether you have a moderation or abstinence goal. I embrace the fact that people can be at different stages of change for different substances at the same time, as substance use falls on a continuum. You can benefit from my non-judgemental approach to substance use.

Together we can focus on eliminating the addiction, or reducing the addictive behaviour, to help you live a more fulfilling life. We can make a plan that you feel comfortable with, and work on helping you achieve your goals. We will focus on what triggers your addiction, and what lifestyle changes may help you make the changes you wish to see.

I have been helping individuals overcome their addictions since 1996. I have helped individuals who were addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling and pornography. Given my experience working with addictions, I am able to determine if my counseling can be sufficient and or when other interventions would be more appropriate. If it is determined that outpatient or residential treatment is required, I have provided the support and assistance to individuals in preparing for and applying to appropriate treatment centres.

For the past 20 years, I have worked with people who use drugs and alcohol to cope with life. In all the work that I have done I have come to understand that people who become dependent on alcohol and drugs generally struggle from undiagnosed mental health issues. Drugs and alcohol often mask depression, anxiety, mania and other mental health issues. When people decide that they no longer want to use alcohol or drugs (because their lives have become unmanageable) they discover they have a variety of other issues and feelings that they have to come to terms with. I help people uncover the reasons why they began over using substances and help teach new coping skills to deal with what they were orig....

As a Psychologist with 30+ years of clinical experience assisting persons with addictions, I may be able to assist you in determining what the real issues are and help you to make the choices needed for you to live a more healthy, happy and fulfilled life

Addictions can help us get through some challenges and maybe even have saved our life. Then there comes a time when addictions seem to get in the way and cause more trouble and more problems. Therapy can help to find different ways of coping. Learning other ways of handing stress and conflict helps quiet the compulsions. Counselling will help you take charge of your life.
