Addiction Counsellor

Tricia Veltri, MC, CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

210-347 Leon Ave, Kelowna, British Columbia

I have nine years experiences working as a drug & alcohol counsellor in various treatment centers. When working with individuals with addictions I utilize the bio/psycho/social/spiritual model. In my experience an individual with an addiction has experienced trauma and the addiction is way of coping with emotional distress and pain. My goal is to help you get to the root of the emotional pain using Eye Movement Desensitization Repressing (EMDR) as well as new healthy coping strategies to replace the void that the addiction served.

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.

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.

Addiction Counsellor

Kathryn Dodds, RPC in Psychotherapy

Registered Professional Counsellor and Life Coach

Kelowna , British Columbia

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."

Addiction Counsellor

Dave Scully, MSW, RCSW

Registered Clinical Social Worker

#206 1634 Harvey Ave, Kelowna, British Columbia

I believe it can be of great benefit to work with a therapist as part of a recovery from addiction issues. I previously help a certification in Oregon as a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counsellor, level II. I work to meet the client wherever they are in the recovery process. I can employ Harm Reduction strategies to try to help people minimize negative impacts of their addictions. While this can be enough for many people, I also know that for many others, abstinence may be the only effective choice to eliminate the negative pull of the addiction. I am familiar with 12-Step model, and can offer good support to those looking to explore the emotional underpinnings of their behaviours.

Addiction Counsellor

Dennis Leclair, B.A., B.Ed., M.Sc.

Personal Development and Relationship Counsellor

347 Leon Avenue, Suite 210 , Kelowna, British Columbia

Addictive behaviours take shape in many aspects of our lives. Often we associate addictions with drugs and alcohol, however, many other activities can be viewed as addictive in nature. These activities include addictions to computer games, golfing and sports, hunting, gambling, sex, yard-work, exercising, etc. Addictive behaviours affect our lives and the lives of our friends, spouse, partner, children and our work peers. Our counselling sessions will assist you with analyzing the behaviours of concern, identifying the reasons for these behaviours, then creating and implementing techniques and stratgies that will decrease the addictive behaviours and replace them with appropriate activities
