This isn't who you are. Is it time for a change? Ready to consider doing something different in your life? My approach to addictions looks at behavioral, emotional and cognitive changes that can support your recovery, building a new you and a new life. Drawing on CBT and other approaches, the supportive, non-judging space I provide teaches you practical strategies to cope with life, alternative (aka more rewarding and fulfilling) behaviors (and to learn to like them!), and helps you heal. You'll come to know greater freedom and satisfaction with who you are, your relationships, and with your life.

The term “addiction” is often used to describe relating to a substance/process in a way that leads to unwanted outcomes. For example, a substance addiction might be alcohol, while a process addiction might be unwanted pornography use. I believe that the relationship one has to a substance/process exists in the system of their whole self. Through psychotherapy, patterns of emotions, thoughts, and behaviours that support addiction can be shifted. In my experience, working through deeper issues which can underlie addiction behaviours leads to more sustainable outcomes. If there is a behaviour present in your life that you can’t seem to kick, therapy can aid you in achieving the change you want.

In T1Y 6X1 - Nearby to Balzac.

An addiction, whether to a substance or a behaviour, is an attempt to alleviate distress, self-soothe or fill an emptiness. The substance or behavior cannot bring relief because it is not what you truly need. No matter how you have been self-medicating your stress and pain thus far, I can help you treat the underlying issues in ways that are life-sustaining rather than destructive. The earlier you get help, the better. I will compassionately help you no matter how many times you have tried to quit and will help you establish ways that will help you stay quit. I provide therapy for various addictions with a sex addiction specialty. I help those addicted as well as their families.

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Balzac.

My work with addiction is to examine the beliefs, thoughts and feelings that lay beneath the addictive behaviour. My approach is to help you see the value that the addiction has in your life and why you have held onto the behaviours associated with the addiction as long as you have. Once we identify what you are getting from the addiction we can begin to look at replacing the behaviours.

At the core of addiction is the inability to live in your own skin. We live in one of the most distracted, numbed out and addicted cultures in the history of mankind. I read a statistic recently - there are over 100 million prescriptions written in the United States for antidepressants and/or mood altering prescription drugs. As a culture, not we're not good at dealing with reality and we look for all kind of ways to avoid our internal experience – drinking, drugs, eating, workaholism, "shopaholism" and perhaps most common is addiction to TV, Internet and electronic devices. Using mindfulness and ACT therapy, I teach clients how deal more effectively with their internal experience and feelin

Having worked previously at an addictions treatment facility for over 9 years, I have seen both the damage caused by a variety of addictions and the ability of individuals to arrest addictive behaviors and re-build healthy addiction-free lives. Whether you are attempting to moderate your use of an addictive substance or behavior, or abstain completely, therapy is an important tool. Together we will explore your triggers for addiction, relapse prevention strategies, and look at the resources available to you as you recover.

One of my favourite authors on addiction says "What if we replaced the word "addict" with: “A human being who suffered so much that he or she finds in drugs or some other behavior a temporary escape from that suffering"? G. Mate. When I see clients struggling with an addiction, I also see them struggling with pain. I work on both pain and the addiction as a method.

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T3H 3B8 - Nearby to Balzac.

It is my belief that addition is a disease of the mind and the most major symptom is craving. Although withdrawal and tolerance are both indicative of addiction, even worrisome drinking or substance use can be classified as addiction. Addiction is a progressive illness and can destroy people's lives quickly. A client will be at a certain level of awareness of their addiction. Through motivational interviewing, I can help the client move towards a desire for change and into actual change. I am a firm believer in the 12 step spiritual programs and believe that it is pertinent for a client to find a sense of spirituality in order to recover and thrive.

Therapist/Counselor (MSW), Hypnotherapist & HypnoBirthing/HypnoMothering practitioner

In T3A 0Z9 - Nearby to Balzac.

Addictions; they meet a need, they have a purpose. I will help you identify what your addiction is doing for you and how to reach that need in a healthier way. You can learn what your triggers are, how to address them and how to maintain an eye on what contributes to relapse, so you can address it early on, as well as identify what helps you maintain progress. Part of my therapy, for those who are interested, involves hypnotherapy because of the benefits and positive difference I see when I work with clients. I'd be happy to chat with you about what your goals are, how I approach counselling (accepting, goal focused and action oriented), and how to begin to create long term success.
