Addiction Counsellor

Joanna Jewell, M.A., R. Psych., CSAT, CMAT

Registered Psychologist

1511 10 Street SW, Calgary, Alberta

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.

Addiction Counselor

Janice A. Graham, Ph.D., RCC

Psychotherapist - Professional Therapy by Phone & Email

Available for Online Therapy

Addictions and all compulsive behaviours can take over our lives and waste our money, damage our relationships and wreck our health and maybe even get us in jail. There are many kinds of addictions, gambling, substance, sexual, some phobias, porn, internet, cutting and many more. Specialized addictions counseling or medical care is advised when appropriate. Supportive, non judgemental, compassionate counseling with Dr. Graham will help you get insight into why you turn to harmful addictive habits. You will learn to identify the needs you are trying to meet and learn ways to resolve these needs with more healthy behaviours. Twelve step programs and other support groups may be discussed.

Addiction Counsellor

Monica Wong, MSW, RSW

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

150, 4625 Varsity Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta

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.

Marion Stewart, M.Ed

Registered Psychologist

4707 - 47 Avenue, Lacombe, AB T4L 1T9, Lacombe, Alberta

Individual therapy can be a route for creating behavioural change. A motivational, stages of change approach, meets people where they are at. For example, when people are contemplating change, they may utilize therapy to explore feelings about pros and cons of change. For people who have made the decision to change behaviour, strategies would involve identifying challenges and personalized strategies to address them. Having achieved the desired change, there may be a period of support during maintenance which may include monitoring situations presenting risk for relapse so that confidence that such situations can be managed may evolve and confidence created to strengthen new behaviours.

Addiction Counsellor

Terry Lindberg, M.Ed., R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

Suite 354, Gulf Canada Square Building, 401-9th Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta

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.

Addiction Counsellor

Mervin Van der Spuy, DTh-Counselling, BSc-Pharmacy

Psychopharmacologist

Suite 500 Macleod Place II, 5940 Macleod Trail SW, Calgary, Alberta

If you or someone you know are addicted to prescription drugs, Dr. Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside you and help you to break the cycle of lapse and relapse. Often people with depression become dependent on taking benzodiazepines (a suppressant that depresses the mood), and they therefore struggle not only to get out of the depression but also to stop taking the tranquilizers. With an understanding of the working mechanisms of the drugs, and with the guidance of a psychopharmacologist, you can begin a new chapter in your life.

Addiction Counsellor

Living Well Counselling Services Inc., MA, MEd, RSW

Counsellors, Psychologist & Social Worker

4803 Centre Street NW, Ste 04, Calgary, Alberta

Jennifer believes in the value of 12-step programs, due to their high success rate and popularity worldwide. She also believes, however, that often more issues need to be dealt with that are not treated in 12-Step programs, for clients to see long lasting success. If you have completed, and/or are currently a part of a 12-Step program, but feel you would benefit from working through some additional issues in therapy, Jennifer would be a good fit.

Addiction Counsellor

Registered Christian Counsellor, Certified Professional Counsellor

Braeside Dr. S.W., Calgary, Alberta

For every woman, the first step towards freedom from addiction is always the step of coming to believe in freedom and to believe that freedom is possible. We can show you a way out of the guilt and away from the shame that keeps you from the love your heart longs for. Reject the lie that you will always be an addict, reclaim your ability to know truth and choose life!

Addiction Counsellor

Sharon Stopforth, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

226B-259 Midpark Way S.E., Calgary, Alberta

I have worked in the addictions field for the past 15+ years. My understanding of addiction is that it stems from multiple traumas whether beginning in childhood or adulthood. My approach to counselling is mind/body focused and aims to assist clients to heal wounds caused by trauma at the body level where trauma is stored. If we experienced early childhood trauma, often the body is the only access point to heal trauma as we experienced trauma before we had the ability to process things verbally. I also believe that in order to heal trauma, we need to heal in relationship as the majority of our traumas occurred in relationships which counselling provides between therapist and client.

Addiction Counsellor

Jeannine Crofton, M. A. Counselling Psychology.

Registered Psychologist

115-1st Street S.W., Calgary, Alberta

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.

Addiction Counsellor

Cathryn Hanssen, MA, CSAT

Registered Psychologist

Suite 225, Building B8 (Currie Barracks), 2526 Battleford Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta

Addiction is a concern that many people struggle with. Often people are unaware of the way in which addiction can significantly affect life, and cause harm to self and others. Feeling out of control and unable to stop harmful behaviours is a normal experience when someone is addicted to a substance or behaviour. Addiction is a treatable disease, which can be managed through therapy and a recovery program. I treat individuals with addiction to alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, food.

Addiction Counsellor

Ken Fierheller, RP

Psychotherapist & Life Coach

5010 Richard Road SW Suite 250, Calgary, Alberta

Don't let addiction rule your life for another minute. I work with folks who struggle with addiction on a maintenance level. Meaning if you are in recovery I can help you crystallize the path forward of of healing and commitment. Addiction can cripple the person and their family members. The compulsion to feed deeper rooted issues is often the culprit and needs to be remedied for lasting change. I can help with creating a path forward for healing old wounds, understanding the behaviors and for installing positive habits as replacements.
