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.

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Someone experiencing an addiction is unable stay away from the substance or stop the addictive behavior,and have an increased desire for the substance or behavior. With any form of compulsive or addictive behavior, the important question is: Is it interfering with any aspect of your life? If it has any harmful effect in any area, such as relationship, finances, work or health, you might want to do something about it. Every addiction has 3 components including emotional trauma, biology and habit. Using Internal Family Systems, CBT and tapping, I address those components to heal childhood wounds and reorient one’s compulsive energies into positive activities.

Carol Korenowski, MC, RPsych

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 2M5 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

In T2R 0S6 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

The question is not why the addiction, but why the pain (Dr. Gabor Mate). Addictions can be difficult to overcome because it both causes problems AND medicates the pain of life in the short-term. Also, there is great stigma from society around addiction--so many have said, Why dont you just stop using? Motivational interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Relapse-Prevention techniques can be very helpful in supporting people through recovery rather than shaming them towards quitting a substance without dealing with whatever is underlying the addiction.

M.A., R.Psych. - Registered Psychologist

In T2N 3M7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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!

Registered Social Worker/Consultant

In T2N 1P1 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Nick Bohn, MA

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

While some people may be genetically predisposed to addiction, others may simply have "addictive personalities", and while some substances may be chemically more addictive than others, addiction, simply put, is a learned behavioural coping response to an underlying emotional issue. And while the addictive behaviour tends to be a very effective short-term coping strategy, the long-term consequences can quickly become unsustainable. My approach is geared toward helping you understand how your addiction is serving you in the short-term, find healthier and more sustainable coping strategies, and most importantly, to identify, and reprocess that underlying emotional issue at its core.
