Addictions can take many forms such as substance use (alcohol and drugs) or behavioural addictions like eating or gambling. The addictive behaviours can be seen on a spectrum that ranges in severity of the issues depending on the person and their unique situation. The client that seeks support for their addictive behaviours is taking a courageous step forward to be ready to learn about their addictive behaviours. The client always sets the pace as to what they would like to achieve in the sessions and what (if anything) they want to do anything to create change in their life.

Often in life, stress, responsibility and unhappiness can lead to managing/medicating with a variety of substances; marijuana, alcohol, gambling, sex, internet, drugs, ect. This can lead to an unbalance in the usage of these substances, create a significant strain and negative affect on relationships, family, work and one self. We will work to uncover the motivating force that has driven to substance abuse and help to regain control. Through this work we will strive to regain a healthy and balanced life, free of addiction or dependency.

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.

I provide support for those considering or determined to reduce or eliminate substances, problem gambling, or other compulsion. Whether the goal is cutting out the addictive behaviour or minimizing its impact, I work through motivational interviewing to help people access addiction treatment if needed. If treatment is not needed, I target the underlying problem such as anxiety, depression, or family conflict. So if you have a family member who requires assessment and direction, or you yourself need to know that you addiction is in good hands while you focus on another problem, I can help.

Many approaches to addiction emphasize willpower and deprivation, but this only works temporarily. Alcohol, substances, or other addictive behaviours like gambling and gaming offer short-term relief of underlying issues at a long-term cost to one's relationships and health. As an addiction counsellor, I can help you resolve underlying issues, regain control, and build a sense of meaning and purpose, so you can start living the life you want. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to addiction recovery. I meet each client where they are at, tailoring my approach to each person's unique needs. Send me a message and we can connect for a quick call to discuss next steps.

Addiction is now seen as being a chronic disease. Its been found that brain circuitry is affected by the disease whereby the drive for reward and gratification leads to a clouding of judgement. Previous memory as to costs of the problem behaviour is overlooked and poor choices are made. Good intervention practice includes addressing the behaviour "cycle" and identifying points of intervention within the cycle. This is commonly known as relapse prevention. With an extensive background and training in relapse prevention and working in private practice for 17 years, I can help develop a workable relapse plan irregardless of the addiction (substance use, gaming, gambling, internet porn etc.)
