Addictions are a cry for help. I don't focus on the addiction, but the problem underneath the addiction, such a abandonment, family relationship issues, loneliness, unresolved grief, family secrets, rigid family rules, verbal or non-verbal. I uncover the reasons why the person became addicted, and then focus on new ways to replace the addiction with more healthy coping stances.

Along with a more conventional form of therapy for addictions, I will also focus on the cause of addictive behavior and will utilize less conventional methods of ferreting out the conditions, criteria, and even purpose (how does addictive behavior benefit you?) behind the behavior. Addictions are a complicated issue, and the more the client understands the deeply rooted causes of their behavior the better chance he or she may have in controlling the condition. It isn't just about stopping the behavior but discovering the meaning behind the choices being made.

I work with couples dealing with addiction in order utilize one of the most important allies in an addict's support system, their spouse. This is possible only if there is adequate safety within the coupe and if the person with the addiction is willing to get individual support for the personal work required. I help the couple talk about their feelings and what they need, to understand each other and how to best support each other. If there are unhealthy dynamics in the couple, I help identify what these are and to make the changes necessary for healthier interaction and a stronger emotional connection.

While I do not work with people struggling with addictions, I provide support and guidance for members of their families. Often as the spouse, parent or sibling of someone struggling with drug or alcohol addiction we find our own lives spinning out of control. We find ourselves enabling and rescuing - hating that we do and yet not knowing how else to respond to the chaos. Counselling can help to reestablish a sense of stability and clarity about next steps. A counselling session for individuals, parents or all family members can provide perspective, guidance and skills to help family members make choices and take actions that are helpful for themselves and often for the one in addiction.

Are you experiencing difficulties with alcohol and substance use or abuse? Are you concerned that you have an addiction? Perhaps you are family member or friend who is concerned that someone close to you has an addiction. In therapy, we can explore your alcohol or drug use and its impact on your life and relationships. Together we can look at what decisions might be beneficial for you and your goals and we can work to unearth what is underlying some of the choices you have made and continue to make in your life. As a non-judgmental, caring professional, I can work with you to help reach the goals you set for yourself. I provide support and guidance to concerned family members and friends.

We can get adicted to anything that makes us feel good! Especially living in an addictively oriented society, it is easy for anyone to become addicted to a variety of things, like substances, relationships, processes, etc. I help people understand the porcess of addictions, and together we can work to overcome both the addiction itself, as well as learning to deal with any deeper desires which might be feeding it. The goal is to be able to life with, or through, the good and the bad without getting stuck in unhelpful ways of coping with life's challenges.

Addiction is extremely complicated, painful and overpowering. You're a great person! One who wishes to have a 'normal life'. But it's not happen. You're trapped, unable to break the chains. You have tried your very best to break the chains, but they are too strong, too big.
This is where I come in. Allow me to help you. The 2 of us have a greater chance to break the chains than you have by youself. I have seen many people secure themselves from various types of addiction(s).
Call me. I will coach you to freedom.
