For over 20 years I practiced as a clinical therapist in several addiction settings. Our agency will provide comprehensive addiction assessments, establish clinical goals and then develop individual treatment objectives. In some situations clients require a more intrusive treatment intervention such as residential treatment. Where this is required, we will facilitate these referrals. Our approach to addiction treatment is based on the stages of change model, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural therapy. We provide insight education and strategies for triggers and urges. Establishing relapse prevention strategies is a critical component to our addiction counselling model.

If we do something repeatedly, that we would rather not do, then we have an addiction. The problem with addictions is that people get hurt. The addicted person may not recognize the seriousness of their situation, but eventually both the addict and their loved ones suffer tremendously in a state of helplessness. Many families have been destroyed from addictive behaviour such as substance addiction (drugs/alcohol), gambling, sexual addictions, gaming/internet addictions. A counsellor can help. Workshops, groups, individual or family counselling can assist in breaking the devastating cycle of addiction. Coping skills and emotional awareness to negotiate compelling urges and compulsive in

There are people who are able to use recreational or prescription drugs without experiencing negative consequences or addiction. For so many others, substance use can cause problems at home, work and in relationships, as a result, leaving you feeling isolated, ashamed and disempowered. If you are concerned about your own or perhaps a friend or family members drug use, it is essentially important to know that effective support is available. The benefits of addiction counseling are to learn about the characteristics of drug abuse, what it looks like, why it can have such a dominant hold and will give you a healthier understanding of the problem and how to best manage it.

Many times, addictions are a poor coping strategy for underlying unhappiness and stress. In counsellng, we look at those deeper factors, and find healthy ways to address them. There are several publicly-funded addiction treatment services near my office, and I encourage clients to participate in those programs alongside our work to resolve the underlying issues.

Addiction does not happen in isolation! If you are struggling with addictions, then I can help in unpacking some of the factors that make addictive behaviours your downfall. Together with other services in the community, therapeutic counselling will open opportunities to unmask the underlying factors, identify the impacts and resulting vulnerabilities, and develop tools for healthier choices. Along the journey of recovery which lasts a lifetime, honesty and clarity, and at times the difficult work of exploring deep wounds and pain, can free you up to healthier choices in all aspects of life. Let me join you, encourage you, prompt you, and support you in this part of your journey.

As a drug and alcohol counselor for children, teens and adults I provide psychoeducational information on relapse prevention and assist with collateral care. Within a school setting I have taught and counseled at risk students and children of alcoholics. Within a mental health clinic environment many clients were treated successfully who had a dual diagnosis. I have worked closely with psychiatrists to help monitor medications that assist patients in being successful with their recovery. I continue to attend ongoing workshops and classes that keep me on the cutting edge of being an effective and successful drug and alcohol counselor.
