Registered Psychotherapist

In L7J 1G8 - Nearby to Erin.

We all strive to avoid painful experiences and we can use a variety of things to take away our pain. However our downfall begins when we continuously rely on this vice to feel something, to get rid of a painful emotion, or to control our reality. I specialize in treating substance addictions where drugs or alcohol are holding you in place despite your best intentions to break the cycle. When in treatment, I see you as a multifaceted person, looking beyond the addiction as a small component of your identity and self-worth. I want to work with you to accept instead of fighting the past, embrace the present moment, move past relapse, and commit to your personal goals of recovery.

In L7C 2X8 - Nearby to Erin.

Addiction rarely exists is isolation, the excess use of a behaviour, activity or substance as a means of escape from life's struggles often leads to the 'scapegoating' of addiction as the primary problem. The reality is that addiction is a symptom of the true problems. I work with clients to uncover the root causes of their addictions so that they can achieve lasting and meaningful change in their lives. I hold certifications in both substance (alcohol & drug) and process addictions (ie gambling, gaming, tech use, sex, shoppping)

Registered Psychotherapist & Music Therapist Accredited

In L9T 5M7 - Nearby to Erin.

Clients who come to me with addictions or substance misuse challenges will be met with a non-judgemental, consistently optimistic approach. Together, we will address the causes and course of the substance use, and resolve the issues that acted as the catalyst. We will identify possible triggers, develop effective strategies for harm-reduction and/or recovery, depending on the readiness, and goals of the individual. The pace of therapy will be guided by the client, and relapse will be accepted with understanding and compassion. Without question, it is difficult to overcome an addiction. But with the right support, insight and motivation, it is more than possible.

Registered Clinical Counselor

In N1E 4E1 - Nearby to Erin.

Learning to control patterns is the key to helping an addiction. We need to work with someone who has been there and knows the games our mind play. In my teens, I was heavily into drugs. I have been clean for 40 years now! But I am still needing to work a recovery plan. Before I went into private practice I worked at the Homewood Health Cr in Guelph. Sex addiction, gambling, drugs, and alcohol are my area of expertise. Addiction is the Homewoods specialty. Faith in something beyond yourself is key to healing. As a trained interfaith counselor I can support you to build faith in yourself and something beyond yourself. I can see you within 3 days there is no runaround or wait. ACT NOW!

During distressing times, some people use substances as a way to cope. In counselling, you will have a space to explore the reasons for why you have addictive behaviours. Together, we will explore the distress that you are feeling and the underlying emotions that are fueling your addiction. I will work with you to develop emotion management strategies and alternative coping strategies that are healthier.

Addiction cannot be completely understood by education alone. So many people are instructed to just stop doing it or just break the habit. Neural pathways once formed provide us with the equivalent to wheel ruts that in our thinking that we default to time and time again. We can with behaviour modification haul ourselves out of the wheel rut, but that wheel rut remains there waiting for us to fall back into when we are vulnerable in moments where we choose to medicate ourselves with our own addiction. Understanding how to rid ourselves of the wheel rut is part of the dual diagnosis addressing addictions - all of them.

Registered Psychotherapist (Q)

In N1H 2W7 - Nearby to Erin.

Any type of addiction is a coping mechanism to help manage a need that wasn't or isn't being met. I believe that in order to help with any addiction, it is critical to figure out what the 'why' of the addiction is. Once the 'why' is uncovered then I work with my clients to help them give themselves what they need, what they were missing. Often inner child work is involved in helping to get through an addiction. My belief is that relapse is part of the process, it is all information and I treat relapse as such. Part of the healing with addiction is healing the shame that comes with the effect the addiction has had.

Registered Psychotherapist, Canadian Certified Counsellor, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner

In N0B 1T0 - Nearby to Erin.

We view addictions compassionately, as a symptom of unresolved emotional pain or trauma, and offer an alternative to traditional AA/12-step models. Our therapists can support you in the journey towards processing and healing the underlying hurts that are resulting in addictions as a coping strategy. Together, we can build the emotional regulation, distress tolerance and impulse management skills on the inside that can reduce the reliance on addictions on the outside, so that pain isn't so overwhelming. We are trauma-focused and can help you navigate the complex interplay of shame, triggers, anxiety, secrecy, codependency, body sensations, relationship dynamics and relapse patterns.
