Registered Psychologist

In T2P 3C5 - Nearby to De Winton.

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.

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.

Registered Social Worker

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to De Winton.

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.

In T1S 1A3 - Nearby to De Winton.

If you are struggling from an addiction, you need to know that you are not alone. Stop believing the voice in your head that you are the only one and reach out for help. When we think we can get control over our addictions on our own, we are only lying to ourselves. You need to have a support network around you to help you understand the deeper reasons behind your addiction. I will also teach you how to connect and express emotions in healthy ways instead of masking them with a substance or addictive process (shopping, gambling, sex etc), and develop healthy coping skills that through consistent practice, will help steer you away from relapse.

Therapist/Counsellor

In T2N 1P1 - Nearby to De Winton.

I do not label clients as “addicts.” I work with a person addicted to a drug or porn, pornography, sexual/sex addiction, by asking questions like: What do you see is the most pressing issue? What do you believe other’s concern of you being addicted to this thing? Do you hear what your significant partner say(s) about your concerns? One client indicated to me that: he felt heard because of the nature of the questions (I asked) did not take sides instead I asked ‘relational questions.’ I recommend to my clients to attend detoxification programs. I encourage healthy lifestyles, values and practices and inform clients about negative side effects related to drug/substance abuse also.

Carol Korenowski, MC, CCC

Registered Provisional Psychologist & Certified Canadian Counsellor

In T2T 3S9 - Nearby to De Winton.

I believe understanding the relationship between attachment and addiction is imperative to helping those struggling with substance use or addictive behaviors. When the needs of the body and mind are not met through relational safety and attachment, the brain seeks similar rewards, often found in substances or other pleasurable behaviors. This way of coping helps numb the underlying pain. I can help you learn and understand your patterns, find ways to regulate and meet your needs in healthy ways, and build the necessary supportive relationships for recovery.

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.

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

In our early environments, we absorb a lot of information about ourselves and the world. Sometimes this stuff is positive – like language or self-soothing, but sometimes it comes from a disruptor and is not. Things like criticism, alcohol used by a parent, detachment from parents, perfectionism, or whatever can cause limiting beliefs about one’s self.

Is your use of porn, alcohol, shopping, prescription medication, illegal drugs, tv, food, video games and online activities bothering you or someone you love? Are you wondering if it is an addiction? Sometimes a good strategy goes bad when it is relied on too much. Then the strategy has become the boss and not just a tool. Discover the addictive voice and learn about the sober/healthy voice. Learn to respond to the part of you that would like relief and wants to be addiction-free (your noble self). Learn more effective ways to manage stress so you are not turning to substances or behaviors that are costing your peace of mind.

In T3H 3B8 - Nearby to De Winton.

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.

Have your addictions and/or compulsive behaviours taken control of your life? Does life seem unmanageable and you feel the things you value slipping away? Does someone you love appear unable to quit doing something even though it is hurting them? As a therapist, my role in the recovery journey is a supportive one. I help people who are already in a 12-step or other program to maintain sobriety by exploring their unhelpful thinking styles, helping them mourn past losses, and addressing other underlying issues that have led to the addictive behaviours. I also help the loved ones of addicts, especially partners of sex addicts who are trying to heal from the trauma of betrayal.

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.

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to De Winton.

Addiction is a particular specialty of mine. My research in the field indicates the power of relationship in the healing of addictions of all kinds. Rather than just a disease, addiction is a maladaptive coping mechanism that individuals had to use in order to achieve a basic need they were not able to have met early in life. This aligns with other emerging research and gives hope that individuals struggling with addiction are not stuck forever. In healing addiction, I provide 1. Stability, coping skills and hope 2. Perspectives of addiction and the healing process 3 (if the client would like). processing of the underlying traumatic issues.

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.

Addictions, in any of their many forms, from shopping and gambling to sex, tobacco, alcohol or drugs (street or prescription), exert a stranglehold on individual quality of life and relationships that can be devastating. The first line of attack against the addiction is information and awareness. I can help you begin that process. Together, we can look at how the addiction has convinced you it can help you cope with life ... and we can begin to address the lies addiction has told you. We can look at the triggers for your addiction, alternative strategies for coping with emotions and stressors, and ways to maintain your gains. I can help you rebuild your relationships and your life.
