Sara Jungen, Psychologist

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

Available for Online Therapy

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!

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 not problems, they are bad solutions. We always need to find the underlying problems and find effective solutions for them before we can let go of the stop-gap solution - whether the addiction is to a substance, a person, or an activity such as sex or gambling. There is always fear and pain underlying the addiction. We must learn to accept these feelings in order to free ourselves.

In T5K 0J8 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

Addictive disorders all have one thing in common: a compulsive and ritualistic way of escaping reality. The reasons for this vary with each person, but the commonality is stress, feelings, and events become overwhelming and escape through arousal, numbing, fantasy or deprivation (or a combination of these) become paramount in the mind of the person suffering in active addiction. The road to recovery is long, and sometimes includes residential addictions treatment, group therapy and individual counseling. I understand and have experience with the entire process and can guide and support you through it all.

Licensed Psychologist, Alberta and Georgia

In T8A 3M7 - Nearby to Gibbons.

I have been clean and sober nearly 26 years. I am familiar with 12-step approaches to treating addictions and compulsions, and sympathetic to those who find them uesful. There are, however, many who need help but cannot find it in 12 step programs. I am able to meet many of these where they are, and help them in ways they are able to use. Addiction and compulsions, like all conditions that respond to psychotherapy, are phenomena that are overcome through personal growth.

Registered Psychologist

In T6E 1T4 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.
