Addiction Counsellor

Devorah Peterson, M.Ed., RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Vancouver, British Columbia

My approach to addiction is multi-faceted and individually focused. Exploring personal history and trauma and grieving losses are often elements, as is reconnecting with the body and its wisdom. In many cases, developing one's spirituality is central to healing. I provide a safe environment for exploring and listening to the range of feelings that have been avoided through the addiction so that reconnection with self is restored and one's deepest longings can be satisfied.

Addiction Counsellor

Kerry Moller, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

1405-675 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia

We all find ways to protect ourselves from experiencing painful emotions, however, some people's coping mechanisms are more harmful than they are helpful. Addictions are commonly the route many people take to avoid feeling pain, but the cost to the rest of their life is tremendous. In my work with addiction, I support clients in getting out of their habitual patterns of relying on an outside fix (whether it be food, alcohol, drugs, sex, and the like), and find the strength, personal conviction and self-love to live a less self-destructive life and find healthier ways of coping with life's many challenges.

Patti Langlais, M.A, MPCC, CCHt

Registered Counsellor, Master Practitioner Clinical Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

Often in life, stress, responsibility and unhappiness can lead to managing/medicating with a variety of substances; marijuana, alcohol, gambling, sex, internet, drugs, ect. This can lead to an unbalance in the usage of these substances, create a significant strain and negative affect on relationships, family, work and one self. We will work to uncover the motivating force that has driven to substance abuse and help to regain control. Through this work we will strive to regain a healthy and balanced life, free of addiction or dependency.

Addiction Counsellor

Erica Collyer Beauchamp, MEd RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

970 Burrard Street, Vancouver, British Columbia

I've worked in Addiction for many years at treatment centres and in corrections. I'm well versed in the 12-steps approach and will apply this approach only when a client is interested and open to this. The 12-steps approach is not for everyone and so I also provide alternative ways to overcome or reduce one's addiction. Treatment of addiction starts with identifying one's triggers and then goes into alternative coping strategies that are proven to be effective. Time is also spent on examining the source of one's addiction so that change can happen more deeply. I view addiction as a symptom of a larger problem and believe if we mend the larger problem, the addiction will decrease.

Addiction Counsellor

Alexia Brown, M.Ed, R.C.C

Registered Clinical Counsellor

West 16th Ave and MacDonald, Vancouver, British Columbia

If we all arrived on earth with an owners manual, it would be far easier to discover the most adaptable ways to cope with the onslaught of challenges we face as we grow and develop. But, we stumble along, often grabbing at crutches that soothe us for a while, but end up bringing us to our knees. My role in addiction recovery is helping you find positive soothing habits, helping you learn how regulate your emotions so that soothing is needed less on the whole, and helping you stay connected to your needs so that you remain in the drivers seat.

Real Solutions for Real Challenges Common Sense techniques. Short-Term & Cost Effective Most often addictions are a symptom of pain. hurt , and loss of some form. The addiction serves to reduce this pain and suffering. However, the affect is has on the individual is to make them feel out of control, guilty, lazy, and generally worse about themselves whin in turn drives them to seek more relief. This is often the downward spiral of the addiction cycle.

Addiction Counsellor

Christie Dakin, BCS, RTC, MTC

Master Therapeutic Counsellor

1069 Douglas Crescent, Vancouver, British Columbia

I worked for many years for a retreat centre and I have seen and worked with many addicts. I think that it is essential that someone suffering from an addiction is wanting help and change for themselves. I help the person with an addiction look at what negative core beliefs created the addiction in the first place.There are many types of addictions and although some take the form of alcohol or drugs, the most insidious are the emotional addictions. Understanding the "pay off" for the addiction is an important component for wanting change. It can also be helpful to work with then family members of an addict to help them understand what they can do to help their family member.

205-1118 Homer St. (206C-1571 Bellevue, WV), Yaletown and West Vancouver, British Columbia

There is an interesting connection between trauma and addictions. When events or situations are perceived as life threatening or overwhelming (even though this might not be a conscious realization), the response to such overwhelming pain is logically to self-medicate. Treating addictions requires gently addressing how clients manage emotional, physical, and mental pain and sensitively building resources to find better coping strategies while healing old wounds.
