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.

Addictions issues can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate or create distress. Support in addressing addictions issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when addictions is present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

People who struggle with addictions usually have underlying issues that the addiction numbs. Being addicted to a substance or a behaviour is a coping tool that only complicates their lives. We offer help with relapse prevention and focus on helping clients develop new ways of coping, as well as encouraging them in re-shaping their lives. We focus on the client as a whole, not just their addiction.

“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)

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.

The pain of addiction is real. & So is the pain that leads us there. I believe we are drawn to substance, process, sexual, & an unending list of other addictions for a reason. & Often that reason is simply to escape our own inner pain or turmoil...that just feels too overwhelming to bear. That makes the journey to freedom from addiction rarely an easy one, but certainly a rewarding one. & It is not one I believe any of us were meant to take alone. Let me come alongside you & support you on your journey back to freedom, joy, & ultimately yourself. & All that you were truly made for.
