Addictions are one way of coping with deep, unrelenting emotional pain. You may be self-medicating to avoid the painful thoughts and feelings often arising out of traumatic childhood experiences. Whether the addiction is to alcohol, drugs, pornography, sex, shopping or gambling the purpose is the same. You are desperately attempting to avoid debilitating emotional pain. Therapy can help you identify and resolve the underlying negative emotions that trigger your addiction. You can learn to control your urges and initiate alternate, healthy responses. You can start to feel physically and mentally healthier. Therapy can help you develop a positive sense of self, and re-establish loving relations....

Addictions of any kind rob not just the one with the addiction but make victims of all who are a part of that person's life. Addictive behaviour runs deep and requires discernment and expertise to fully reconcile its harmful effects emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally and relationally. But, it is surely worth the work to root it out and bring peace and freedom for all.

Addiction is born of suffering and a need to escape. Together my clients and I work on the day-to-day habits and patterns that feed the addiction, while also addressing the core issues that have lead to the addiction in the first place. Often people suffering from addiction use it to deal with trauma and abuse in the past. Addiction often leads to great suffering in the present as it cuts people off from their families, jobs, and things which give their lives meaning and purpose. Understanding the suffering that led to the addiction and healing the wound that it caused is one part of the process. As healing happens, we can practice new tools and behaviours that lead to fulfillment.

No one in life plans on having a struggle with an addiction. I have found in my life - that it is often a quest for happiness and security that someone can become entangled in an addiction. What begins as a way of numbing or avoiding painful feelings and seeking a way to feel better becomes a habit and at times - a way of life and one of the only ways to cope with life. I wonder about addictions being the great deceiver. What we hope will help - the magic to make all well - becomes what destroys so much. Naming the problem - is really such an important and courageous step towards healing. It is so important to find support in moving forward and away from an addiction.

Certified Sexual Recovery Therapist

In R2J 4A7 - Nearby to Rockwood.

I help people break free from many types of addiction and I specialize in sex addiction therapy. My philosophy is to work from the "outside in." In other words, I give you many tools to stop your outward behaviors in the initial sessions. Once you have gained some sobriety, I will work with you on the internal issues that led you to the addiction in the first place. The core issues may include abuse, trauma, codependency, intimacy anorexia, depression, anxiety, family-of-origin problems and/or spiritual difficulties. The internal issues can be difficult to face but once there is healing, long-term recovery and sobriety from your addiction is attainable.

It saddens me that often people struggling with addiction receive such judgement. I recognize that every single one of us can easily fall into the cycle of addiction, whether it be alcohol, drugs, gambling, work, sex or a multitude of other options. I like to begin from a place of addressing the issue of shame, and then help clients become more self-aware of their feelings and thoughts. I then help them learn to manage life in a more healthy manner - slowly. I believe that every addict has some form of past hurts and wounding that I would love to help them work through, so that they can live a full and vibrant life.

Our relationship with any process or substance (drugs/alcohol, pornography, shopping, work, gaming, gambling, social media) becomes unhealthy when it affects our lives in negative ways. Be it increasing distance/conflict in our relationships or creating financial/legal/health/career consequences, the result is a disconnect from our own true values and desires. I work with clients to develop curiosity-appreciating how the addiction, originating as an attempt to solve a problem (trauma, mental illness, stress), has now become the problem. Framing it as such, we can begin to work with dependence with greater perspective and compassion, shifting from ambivalent powerless to resilient action.

Addictions are stressful, frustrating, and anxiety provoking. They lead you to behave in ways that, even as you are doing it, you know are not ultimately going to benefit you. So, if you don't want to be doing it but still do it, what's going on? Well, addictions are a confused, and often harmful, way of coping with a stressful, frustrating, or painful situation. The only problem is, aside from temporarily numbing and soothing you, they don't really solve anything, and they often create problems of their own, making life more stressful and thus increasing your need for the coping strategy all over again. Our program will teach you to simply step free of the struggle completely.
