Addiction is a symptom and often a way of coping with trauma, developmental trauma or other metal health issues. I use a compassionate inquiry lens to help you understand why your addictive behaviour makes sense. I use motivational interviewing, and draw on the wisdom of 12 step models and SMART and REFUGE recovery. I will work with you to help you understand the consequences of your addiction and help you build a life of meaning and purpose where the compulsive need to use disappears. It is not as simple as just stopping the substance or the behaviour. I will help you find healthy ways of coping and dealing with the shame and secrecy of addiction and help you carve a path towards freedom.

I have been working in the addiction field for many years now and recognize that there is a common theme underlying addictive behavior, whether it be substances or activities. The alcoholic and the workaholic both face the prospect of dying prematurely and alone, but society views one with scorn and one with admiration. Many people are reluctant to seek help for addictive behavior because they know someone else "has it worse". Don't let other people convince you that your problem isn't a big deal. If it matters to you, then it's worth talking about. I come from a place of compassion, non-judgment, and empathy, three ingredients missing in the lives of many people who struggle with addiction.

After specializing in helping people through substance use related problems including addiction, I have come to understand addiction as a best attempt at coping with overwhelming life experiences. People seeking to explore getting help with addictions have often had upsetting experiences through the mental health and medical systems. In therapy with me you will be supported to make change and explore topics at your own pace and to have your wants and needs respected. We will work on reducing your cravings while also addressing some of the deeper layers that effect your substance use.

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.

Addiction can be complicated and there can be many layers of struggle. My approach is to understand where a person has come from in order to understand what has brought them to counselling today. I am informed by the Response Based Approach, Narrative Therapy, and Systemic Family Therapy. It is important to work together in a way that protects the client's dignity and worth. Goals and treatment are negotiated with clients and are collaborative.
