Addiction and compulsive behaviors can make us feel powerless regardless of whether the problem is with drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, shopping or other problematic behaviors or substances. My approach to managing addiction and addictive compulsive behavior is to create a safe space to explore the problem, assess the impact in your life, provide information and create a plan appropriate to you and your individual needs.

I believe that overcoming addiction is one of the greatest personal challenges that there is. Often when I first meet with clients they express feelings of hopelessness and despair making it difficult for them to reach out. I provide a non-judgmental, confidential space to explore this. In working together we can identify triggers for addictive behaviours and how to manage this. My goal is to help clients understand their addictive process and provide them with the support and tools that they need to stay in recovery.

In V9B 6R5 - Nearby to Metchosin.

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.

We are all addicts in some form or another. Yet whether it is to coffee, heroin, the internet, or food, addiction is always reaching for the wrong thing. The beloved object is only an attempt to fill a void that is calling for something else, and that's why it never quite satisfies us. Withdrawing the energy from the object is never easy, for it means suffering a lack of control. 12 step programs help because they provide not only structure, but human relationships. Psychotherapy is even more helpful for it not only provides those same things, but also helps one find what the addiction is a stand in for. This answer is always individual, and always both deeply personal and healing

I work with a variety of clients who suffer from a range of addiction issues. I believe it is important for society as a whole to understand and accept that addictions can effect indivuduals from any background, economic status, race or religion. Having my clients feel that I am free of any judgments is imperative to our working relationship, and their emotional safety while dealing with the addiction issues they are facing.

Living with an addiction can become second nature like breathing. It is not easy to disentangle from a destructive, ingrained habit that reduces your ability to engage in living life to the full. 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.

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.

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.
