I see people who want to stop or slow down their porn use. Porn is so easy to find these days, and many people have been exposed to graphic images at an early age. Some people use porn as a routine shortcut to excitement. But it can backfire: they can start having trouble getting excited without porn. Or they really don’t want anyone to find out. Porn is the quick solution that doesn’t solve that much, and sometimes it creates longer term problems. Relationships can suffer, and so can your self-respect. Sometimes porn use hides other trouble in your life. Together we identify what is going on and what you can do to change – so you can connect better with others and with yourself.

Often underlying addictions is an inability to regulate emotions. A key to working with addictions is to give people the tools, techniques and resources to regulate emotions without the unwanted behavior or substance. Often an addict experiences a sense of shame at not being able to function without the addiction. These shameful feelings lead to a desire to engage in the addiction to escape them. Once the effects of the addictive behavior have worn off, however, the shame returns and the addict feels compelled to use again. Therapy can help break this cycle by giving the addict the ability to express feelings in healthier ways and in a safe and non-judgemental environment.

I am guided by your willingness to make a change, your believe in your ability to make that change, and the priority that making this change has in your life. An addiction has usually such a strong grip on a person, who is often also alone and has tried many times before; that extraordinary patience, perseverance, and continued refocusing is needed. At the same time, the many people that succeed every day after having tried many times, are proof that it can be done. My focus is to support your willingness, ability, and priority within a structured plan of carefully chosen activities that are realistic and meaningful.

What will life look like without this addiction; what possibilities will open up for you? Together, we will envision what life could be like down to the last detail, and then take concrete, committed steps to move you in that direction. I will meet you where you are at every step of the way.

Addiction is all its’ forms may have started as a perceived ‘solution to a problem’, but has evolved into a problem itself that has negatively affected many aspects of one’s life. I will be there to support you in making the changes you desire towards a healthier way of being. However, this journey ultimately is up to you taking the steps required. “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” (Gautama Buddha), but I would add … “with compassionate support”.

“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)

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

If you are struggling with an addiction or have starting to collect some clean or sober time, you may notice that you have a lot of feelings that hit you. In the past, you may have covered these feelings up with your drug or addictive behavior but now that you are clean, the feelings are sitting in you begging to be dealt with. I can help you face these feelings and thoughts head on. In doing so, you will learn to deal with your feelings without turning to your addictive behavior. The benefit here is the ability to feel the entire range of feelings from deep sadness and anger to genuine happiness.
