Having worked for several years at Addiction Services for York Region, I know and understand the pain and chaos that addictions cause individuals and families. I see addictions as poor and destructive coping mechanisms and work with individuals and families to interrupt the addiction behavior so that the triggers can be determined and clients can process the pain underlying the behavior. Often this means working with other parts of the client support group such as their Doctor. I am very familiar with 12 step programs and work within a complementary framework of attachment and the importance of strong close relationships with the most important people in one's life, family. Call me.

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.

Addiction is devastating. It’s devastating to the one struggling with addiction and to all those that are being affected by it. I understand that people aren’t cookie cutter images of one another. That’s why I believe in providing clients with a tailor made approach. One that takes into account your unique struggles. Clients are reinvigorated by my individualized approach, they leave my office feeling lighter and less burdened , and that’s the point of therapy!

There are a variety of commonalities to all addictions. In my work with you, I will help you to identify what triggers your addictive behaviour and how to manage your temptation. I will educate you on what is considered a healthy relationship to your addiction of choice. You will also be connected to a series of resources outside of the therapy for additional support. Our work will also focus on helping you to develop a relationship to yourself, so that you learn to love, like and accept yourself.

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 process of addictions, and together we can work to overcome both the addiction itself, as well as learning to deal with the usually very human desires which are 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.
