Addictions are a form of self-medication or self-soothing. When we are stressed or upset about something, we just want to 'feel good.' Addictions are the result of relying for too long on some substance or behavior that 'feels good' - and then turns into a pattern of behavior, or an addiction. The process of therapy for addictions, whether substances, internet porn or other problem behavior that has become an addiction, involves becoming aware of of the 'dis-ease' that resulted in the development of the addiction, and addressing that through your counseling.

If we do something repeatedly, that we would rather not do, then we have an addiction. The problem with addictions is that people get hurt. The addicted person may not recognize the seriousness of their situation, but eventually both the addict and their loved ones suffer tremendously in a state of helplessness. Many families have been destroyed from addictive behaviour such as substance addiction (drugs/alcohol), gambling, sexual addictions, gaming/internet addictions. A counsellor can help. Workshops, groups, individual or family counselling can assist in breaking the devastating cycle of addiction. Coping skills and emotional awareness to negotiate compelling urges and compulsive in

In M4Y 1E1 - Nearby to Don Mills.

Approaches to addressing addictions really vary from one treatment setting to another. My approach focuses on helping people manage their addictions. Not everyone chooses abstinence, and not everyone needs to. In fact, for many problem drinkers learning to become a controlled drinker can offer a more sustainable way of living. I tend to work with people to help them manage their addictions in a way that is sustainable, and in a way that works for their personal situation.

Perhaps you're feeling down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. You may be asking yourself if something needs to change. You may not have the answer to what you’re looking for, but you know the answers you have been given up until now are not working. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to support you every step of the way. Healing is a process of growth and self-discovery and in our sessions, I promote behavioural transformation through various research-based methods that enable a person to "recode" old undesirable brain behaviours by reprogramming them with new attitudes and responses.

Addictive behaviours may feel like comfort to the vacuum left by aloneness or detachment. The feeling of aloneness can start early. Children require a lot of emotional interaction to develop trust that their needs for support and caring will be met. If they don’t experience positive attachments, they may turn their needs for love and caring into physical cravings, which are easier to fill, and develop relationships with their addictions because they're more in control of them than those they look to for love and attention. I create a therapeutic environment in which individuals can deepen their understanding of their feelings and learn to trust their inner resources to connect with others.

In L4G 0L5 - Nearby to Don Mills.

While I do not work with people struggling with addictions, I provide support and guidance for members of their families. Often as the spouse, parent or sibling of someone struggling with drug or alcohol addiction we find our own lives spinning out of control. We find ourselves enabling and rescuing - hating that we do and yet not knowing how else to respond to the chaos. Counselling can help to reestablish a sense of stability and clarity about next steps. A counselling session for individuals, parents or all family members can provide perspective, guidance and skills to help family members make choices and take actions that are helpful for themselves and often for the one in addiction.

Sex addiction is one of the hardest addictions to treat because it’s not about avoiding/quitting the “poison”, rather, managing sexual desire in the right context. And since it’s based in shame, internal discomfort & self-loathing, approaching it from a moral judgment standpoint only exacerbates the problem. As such, I conduct the treatment process from a place of understanding, so the client can reach in their darkest places to identify triggers and we can address them – the process also works with porn addiction. I take a multi-prong approach – identifying & treating root causes, eliminating the addictive cycle, replacing it with constructive ways of self-soothing, and building self-esteem

It is important to better educate yourself on alcohol and drugs, or any addiction you may have, increasing your awareness of how it affects your life, what puts you at risk of the behaviour, how to reduce the behaviour, and how to reduce stress. I will help you examine your thoughts and emotions and learn how these inner experiences affect how you behave, how you interact with others, and how others see you. It is important to manage cravings and temptations to behave in harmful ways, and to meet your basic needs with a healthy lifestyle. A major focus is also to meet and socialize with people who do not have an addiction or substance abuse problem.

Research indicates there can be both a biological and emotional element to addictions. Addictions can flow through families and can go hand in hand with ADHD as a result of genetic based nutritional deficiencies. An addiction can therefore represent a self-medicating boost in the stimulation of dopamine and other neurotransmitters, creating a desire for more. As research into addictions continues understanding has also grown around the role of relationships in addictions. While unsatisfying relationships and negative emotional dances can be at the root of addiction, healing connected relationships and resolving negative emotional patterns can also facilitate choices which stop the addiction.
