Weather you find yourself compulsively drinking, drugging, eating, gambling or sexually acting out, (to name a few) you know you have a problem when these behaviors are causing you difficulties in you relationships, work, or your emotionally or physical health. I use a combination of 12 steps, mindfulness and rational recovery to assist you in dealing with the voice in your head that talks you into acting in ways that you know are destructive so you can manage your mind rather than having your mind manage you.

Addictive behaviours are ways in which we attempt to manage uncomfortable emotions. I will help you to learn new ways of coping so that the objects of addiction no longer feel appealing. We can be addicted to sugar, drugs and alcohol, people, work, and so on. The additive behaviours serve a purpose and simply taking away the 'substance,' will not mitigate the unhealthy behaviours. We must find other ways to manage your emotions.

In my work with clients battling addictions I work to help them discover the root causes for their addictive behaviors and find new ways to resolve them.

When there are setbacks, my clients learn to explore them in a non-judgmental environment designed to help them move forward toward the sober, healthy life and relationships they are seeking.
