What we become addicted to and why is less important than what the addiction is doing for us right now. We wouldn't be addicted if it wasn't serving some purpose. When we look and the emotional pain, stress, and overwhelm the addiction is helping us cope with, we get to the root of the problem. When we see that the addiction isn't a disease or a choice, we see it as a method we have been using to cope with a problem.

Registered Psychotherapist

In N1M 1H8 - Nearby to Erin.

I am able to help with substance, alcohol & process addictions such as shopping, gambling, sex, porn and so on. The benefit to working with me is that I am a recovering addict of 10 years, so I understand how hard it is to ask for help and to try and change. I also understand the complex layers of addiction and the battle to stay clear of it. And I most definitely understand the guilt and shame associated when we are engaged in our addiction and what it does to the people that love us the most. I have years of experience with addictions and mental health issues. I believe in both abstinence and harm reduction as an approach to addictions. Call for a FREE 30 minute consultation today.

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.

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.

I have lived experience with overcoming addiction and discuss this openly with those I work with. I work with clients with where they’re at and collaboratively work towards their goals around addiction. I have a deep understanding of the twelve-step model and can work with clients who want to incorporate both more or less of this approach. I believe the substance or behaviour someone is addicted to is often the symptom and not the “problem”.

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.

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)

Recovery from addiction is often fraught with many difficulties. Having a supportive, accountability partner in the form of an experienced therapist who has lived experience of addiction and recovery can help improve positive outcomes and maintain recovery. Reducing self judgement and shame is vital to sustaining recovery and having a safe space to process these emotions is something I am happy to provide.

Let's face it, we all have some kind of addiction. Whether it is illegal or legal substances (like sugar or coffee), we all face this challenge to a greater or lesser degree. Guilt & shame will drive us further from ourselves & others. Armed with responsibility & a well stocked emotional toolbox, self management can be obtained and maintained. This is all very doable, with support and commitment to change.

Dealing with addiction is not easy. Addictions can put barriers between people and their relationships, families, work, and well-being. When the source of addiction becomes more important than everything else, it is time to seek help. I have worked with people from all walks of life: those who are working, with families; those who have experienced chronic homelessness as the result of their addictions; and those who are concerned about increased use of a substance or behaviour (drugs/alcohol/sex/gambling/shopping, etc.). I work with clients from a harm reduction perspective, in order to minimize the damage that a substance or behaviour is causing in a person's life.

Colleen Fava, RP, BA, Second Degree Reiki

Registered Psychotherapist

In N1H 3W5 - 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.

Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Marriage & Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

Addiction brings pain and chaos individuals, couples and families. I see addictions as poor and destructive coping mechanisms and work with individuals and couples to interrupt the behavior and work to process the pain underlying the behavior. I am very familiar with 12 step programs and CSAT work that help individuals and couples make sense out of the addiction. I also work within a complementary framework of attachment and the importance of strong close inter-dependent, not co-dependent relationships with the most important people in one's life, family. Call me for a consult about your particular needs and situation.
