Addiction often overtakes whole lives and keeps its victims in captivity taking away the joy and freedom. I work with you and support you to fight it off and rebuild your life. You develop skills to effectively cope with cravings, how to go through your emotions during rough time with no judgement, and keep moving forward towards healing the relationship you have with yourself and the relationships with the close ones and begin to savor the taste of life, free of addiction.

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.

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.

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”.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.
