Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

When struggling with an addiction one can feel hopeless. Treatment after treatment will seem to work for a time and then grow ineffective. My style of working with addictions is to combine short-term behavioral interventions to work to keep you safe and maintain employment, relationships or other significant areas of your life that may be affected, while working to understand the deeper issues and causes of destructive behaviors, unquenchable needs and hopeless feelings.

Addictions often take over a persons life even though behaviors may have been manageable and less frequent at one point in time. We can use counseling sessions to identify why you are using the addictive behavior and how it is harmful in your life as keys to recovery and treatment. We can begin to find healthy alternatives for coping that result in much less stress and damage to your self and those around you. Addictions often take a tool on health, relationships, finances, and happiness and therapy can help restore that with the use of recovery-based treatment approaches.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Additions can often be understood as an effort to numb the pain resulting in one’s failure in their relationship with the self. Feeling unable to experience adequate levels of self-esteem can reflect difficulty in loving and caring for yourself or accepting love from others. Feeling vulnerable and exposed can reflect difficulties in feeling able to protect yourself resulting from difficulties with setting effective boundaries, while losing yourself in the face of other’s beliefs can reflect difficulties with identifying and sharing who you know yourself to be. These and other symptoms can lead you to seeking to numb yourself from the pain of feeling overwhelmed. Reconnect with yourself.

I often observe what is called "the human magnet" syndrome...this is when an individual finds themselves in a pattern of being drawn to the same type of person over and over again. The magnetic pull may be to someone who is an addict, impulsive, abusive, neurotic or another destructive relational pattern. We call this pattern, or magnetic pull codependency. I have a soft spot for people who find themselves in this pattern. I also want to tell you that you can get yourself unstuck and unleashed! I would love to coach and counsel you on how to do that! Bringing your best self to the world is your most important lifework! Call me today so I can support you in that sacred journey.
