Often we fall into the trap of seeing the addiction as the problem. In fact, it is actually a symptom. I often tell clients with addictions that if I were to have the flu and suddenly got sick, the mess on the floor is not the problem. The flu bug inside of me is the problem and the mess on the floor is the symptom of that problem. In order to treat addiction as a symptom it then becomes necessary to explore how it got started and what environmental and personal choices are present that keep this addiction active.

Addictions can appear in many forms including substance addictions, internet addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction, shopping addiction, pornography, social media, excessive exercise, food, etc. Strong cravings with a loss of control can lead people to become addicted in spite of possible dire consequences. Counselling is one of several possible treatments available for addictions. Individual, group and family therapies have been found to be helpful in order to inform a client regarding the harmful effects the addiction may have on themselves, their friends, family and society. Promoting physical, emotional and spiritual well being is often critical for the rehabilitation process.

Ready for change? In your life, relationships, and with yourself ? Change begins with you. Exploring how your addiction has influenced your life and imagining how your life can be by rewriting your relationship with addiction. Our lives and our pathways are not written in stone. When we tell our stories in ways that can make us stronger, we can discover - we are not the problem - the problem is the problem. When we separate ourselves from the problem, we can begin to revise our relationships with problems and gain new insight into different ways we can live our lives. I can help you discover ways to reclaim your past and re-envision your future and change your relationship with addiction.

Addictions are hard but not hopeless. I my self battled with my own addictions. Along with education I also have understanding at a deeper level due to my personal experience. The substance that you are addicted to is not so much the issue as is the feelings, thoughts, experiences and behaviours. Processing ones story within therapy allows a person to step one foot closer to freedom and hope in a better life. It is a risk to reach out and be vulnerable. The key is to keep picking oneself back up and keep trying.I look forward to hearing your story and journeying with you as you process it.

Many people find themselves drinking more alcohol that they really want to drink. I offer another approach to AA. I provide my clients with the "harms reduction" program. You can still drink alcohol, but your learn to stay within your save limitations. You and I use the Harms Reduction workbook along with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Hypnosis. My clients have had wonderful success with this program.

Many approaches to addiction emphasize willpower and deprivation, but this only works temporarily. Alcohol, substances, or other addictive behaviours like gambling and gaming offer short-term relief of underlying issues at a long-term cost to one's relationships and health. As an addiction counsellor, I can help you resolve underlying issues, regain control, and build a sense of meaning and purpose, so you can start living the life you want. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to addiction recovery. I meet each client where they are at, tailoring my approach to each person's unique needs. Send me a message and we can connect for a quick call to discuss next steps.

Addiction can take many forms -- from substances and food to pornography, sex, gambling, internet gaming, work, spending and finance. Addiction develops as a way to deal with pain and depression when something better hasn't been found. But there are better ways! Self-awareness, effective communication, self-worth, healing from trauma and pain, ability to form strong, genuine relationships, connecting with your deep human spirit -- all these are pathways towards a sober and purposeful life. It is never too late! Start early!
