Registered Professional Counsellor and Life Coach

Available for Online Therapy

Clients with lifelong addictions have found freedom and hope again. "The first time I saw Kathryn I was a mess! ...I was depressed, confused, hurt, angry and desolate and almost to the point of ending it all. Life just didn't seem worth living... Kathryn was so understanding and kind and helped me to change my negative thoughts into positive ones ...She also taught me that no one can make me feel anything happy, sad, lonely, miserable - these are my own thoughts and they come from my own guilt or shame,people just trigger them... I now want to live and I understand how important it really is to live an honest clean life and to care for and love myself like I never knew how to before."

Shannon Ritchie, MC, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

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 have over 22 years of experience working with clients suffering from severe addiction issues.

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.

Gambling recovery, and substance abuse recovery programs are available. I offer pre and post treatment care. What is recovery to you?
