I help clients with addictions using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a research-based form of therapy in which I am certified. Strategies include avoiding high-risk situations and activities, managing urges and emotions, thinking of the benefits of staying on track and the downsides of using, and countering permission-giving thoughts.

Addiction is often the surface problem, it's a way of staying away from a greater pain that is below the surface. Doing addiction counselling with me is a gentle and compassionate process of tending to the real issues below the addiction, so that there is no longer a need to engage in this harmful behaviour. When you pull out the roots of a weed, the weed will not grow back, and real change has been achieved!

Are you nervous deep down that your drinking is putting the career you love at risk? Are you tired waking up with a pounding headache, dragging yourself out of bed thinking, “why did I go that hard?” Does “a couple drinks to relax” end up being a runaway train leaving you hungover and ashamed? Is it impossible to have “just one-or-two” and keep it classy? Do you worry that if an emergency happened, you won’t be in proper shape to help your loved ones? Using a mix of humor, accountability, and cutting-edge techniques, I'll help you understand and master your drinking habits - so you can have the robust health, powerful career, and supported family you deserve.

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.

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.

Deanne has worked extensively with addiction and con-current disorders (addiction combined with mental health concerns). Specifically, she has worked with substance use (alcohol and drugs), gaming and food addiction. Deanne approaches addiction with curiosity to help learn more about the function of the addiction. She believes that addiction often develops as a way to cope with past trauma, unmet needs, difficult emotions and fears. As Gabor Mate aptly writes ‘it is impossible to understand addiction without asking the relief the addict finds or hopes to find in the drug or the addictive behaviour.”
