The decision to seek treatment for addiction is not an easy one that requires a great deal of trust between the client and counsellor. I offer a safe non-judgemental space where you can explore the root cause of addictive behaviours. Recovery from addiction is possible. I use a client-centered approach as the foundation of my work, as I believe that we all contain within ourselves the resources needed to make meaningful change in our lives. A counsellor can walk alongside you through this difficult experience and help you to find your way back to health and wellness. Reach out today to get the support you need on your path towards healing.

“It was a long and heavy day and I just need to break the edge.” “I communicate better after few drinks” “I can’t fall asleep if I don’t have my…” When a substance becomes a “priority”, or becomes overused, it begins to creep into and destroy an individual’s health, family, relationship and even work. The question becomes "Do I have control over it or does it have control over me?". Often substances are used as coping mechanism without realizing that it often creates even more anxiety and depression, leaving a person feeling more stress and low down the road. Feeling anxious without a "quick fix" or a “temporary Band-Aid” is a strong indicator that a person is or has lost control with the desired substance. In counselling, we work to support...(view profile to read more)

Addictions indicate trauma and lack of personal needs being met. What are you numbing from? Many addictions are multi- generationally experienced, or part of unmet health care and or mental health needs. Violence is often part of the cycle of addiction. The more severe the addiction, the more severe the lifestyle issues. Safety, stability, and risk reduction are the first steps. I can offer you psychological support for all of the issues that go with severe addictions. Detox is available at the Phoenix center, Methadone clinic is in Kamloops. Gambling recovery, and substance abuse recovery programs are available. I offer pre and post treatment care. What is recovery to you?

If addiction was a choice, there would be no addicts. Often the stigma and shame that people face can add to the problem. In counselling, I work with individuals, couples, and families to understand what is really going on, how to accept what we cannot change, and how to develop a plan for moving toward a healthy lifestyle. There are many theories of addiction and why it exists, in my practice with people struggling with substance use, I look at the biology, psychology, and social aspects of the addiction.

My approach to addictions counselling is to explore what is 'feeding' the addiction- in other words, to explore and discover what is missing in your life that you have replaced with drinking, taking substances, or whatever your addiction may be. It is my hope that you will come to identify and understand your triggers and learn better ways of coping with your issues.

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.

The question is not "why the addiction but why the pain" - Gabor Mate. Addiction is rooted in human suffering and complex social problems. Drawing on the work of Gabor Mate, Narrative Therapy, Systemic Family Therapy, and Response-Based practice, I will begin to address the pain and suffering experienced by individuals and families. We will also exploring the social context the contributes to an addiction culture. One of the goals is to start to separate the person from the addiction. Each individual is so much more than the addiction they experience.
