When you are addicted to a substance or a behaviour you feel out of control. You know you are hurting yourself and others, but still can't stop the dowards spiral. Family and friends are angry with you and you are angry with all of them. The shame of your behaviour leads to isolation which only further exacerbates the problem. It is time to reach out for help, stop the destruction and learn healthy ways of living.

In T5K 0J8 - Nearby to Calmar.

Working with addiction issues is one of my passions. I have worked with individuals struggling with drug, alcohol, and gambling abuse for many years, and am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist through the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals. In my work with clients, I am informed by the latest research on addiction and the brain. I believe that understanding the biological underpinnings of addiction creates an essential foundation for change to occur. I also utilize Relapse Prevention strategies (based in Cognitive Therapy) to help the client create a solid plan of action to manage addictive urges.

I hold a great deal of respect for those choosing to challenge their addictions to drugs, alcohol, pornography or gambling and seek a different lifestyle. I use a harm reduction approach to recovery based on the "Good Lives" philosophy that addictions are an illegitimate means to a legitimate end. Addictions offer a tempting short-term solution to many life situations. However, longer-term happiness means building a lifestyle that has no room for the addictive behaviour. I use a variety of strategies including cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnosis, mindfulness, narrative therapy and EMDR to support clients in attaining their personal goals.

There are many kinds of addictions that a client may seek counselling for. Addictions hurt everyone and the person affected may be in total denial. Addictions occur in 2 forms, behavioral and physical. When addicted clients seek treatment they will experience increased self-esteem as they find success in reducing or eliminating addictive behaviors.

Seeking help for addiction is a huge undertaking. Often we fear the consequences of seeking help. What if our employer finds out, what about our families, friends, loved ones? As a psychologist I protect confidentiality, and seek to help you sort your concerns through compassion without stigma or judgment. I will move towards change at your pace, safety seeking to minimize the harm of substances and behaviors through a harm reduction approach as you seek to organize, make sense, and move towards increased wellness. This wellness might look different from what others might tell you, but together we can help identify what health and wellness will mean for you and being taking the first steps.

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Calmar.

Addictions come in a variety of forms such as alcohol and drugs, pornography, media, the internet, sex and sexual intimacy, relationships, and many others. What is common to all types of addiction is the negative impact such patterns can have on our lives, our loved ones, and things we hold dear in life. If you are caught in the chains of addiction and find yourself unable to break free, I can help you. I want to give you the power to walk down the path of recovery and to mend the damage that addiction has created in your life. In therapy we will invest the time and energy to discover what has led to addiction for you, and use proven methods to resolve the sources of addiction.

Addictions are commonly viewed as ways of self-soothing, that is, of incorporating a means of avoiding painful feelings. Essentially, patterned substance abuse or compulsive behaviours serve to meet this need in the short term, but are dysfunctional and damaging on the whole, becoming increasingly pervasive and difficult to change with time. Exploration of the feelings behind the addictive behaviour allows for greater understanding, ways to incorporate different routines to replace harmful patterns, and an opportunity to feel what needs to be felt in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Addictions are very challenging and overcoming them require the support of counsellors, friends and family. I offer a supportive and safe place to discuss your struggle with addiction. Often addictions are a result of not having learned to deal with difficult experiences, and emotions. It is usually helpful to talk about difficult feelings and learn to deal with them in new and more constructive ways.

Addictions are an expression of our psychological vulnerability to harmful substances or patterns of behaviour that create the illusion of happiness while taking away our ability to exercise free and healthy choices that are consistent with who we are as individuals. Counselling helps us overcome addictions and acquire the skills to meet our personal and interpersonal needs in ways that are healthier or authentic.

Addiction issues are not simple. They are never due to only one thing and there are so many factors to take into consideration. There is the physiological piece, the emotional piece, the behavioural piece, the coping piece, the social piece, etc. Attacking the issue from all angles is often required along with hope for the future and dedication. I am looking forward to be your mentor and guide as you find a way to break free from the shackles of addiction and implement positive personal changes in your life.
