Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has been adapted to show benefits with addictions. A primary focus with DBT is noting that unwanted thoughts and behaviors are learned and reinforced. Our sessions will aim to identify and break the negative reinforcement cycle. This approach uses counselling and builds skills that aims to increase feelings of control over dangerous behaviors, experience feelings without avoidance or escape, rebuilding skills for common problems, and finding a sense of connection in the world to move towards happiness.

Addiction comes in many packages. Many people who suffer from addiction may suffer from multiple layers of addiction. Addiction is a condition in which a person engages in the use of a substance or in a behavior for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeatedly pursue the behavior despite detrimental consequences. Because addiction affects the brain’s executive functions, individuals who develop an addiction may not be aware that their behavior is causing problems for themselves and others. Over time, pursuit of the pleasurable effects of the substance or behavior may dominate an individual’s activities. In some cases a referral may be made.

Substance use problems can impact all aspects of your life. It can make it difficult to maintain healthy relationships, fulfill obligations at work or school, and can be isolating and lonely. The substance or behaviour that used to be the solution to problems has now become the problem, and it’s hard to stop. You are not alone and there are pathways to a different way of living. The place to start is the simplest but also the most difficult. Reach out and ask for help. You don’t have to commit to change right away, all you have to do is have a conversation. Addiction likes to live in secret, but remember you are not alone and there is support waiting for you when you are ready.

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.

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)

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

Substance use can often feel like the only effective way of coping with traumatic events or challenging life circumstances. I believe that therapy should open space for clients to discuss their experience with substance use and what purpose this serves in their lives. I take a de-pathologizing stance and work collaboratively with clients to explore what substance use means to them and see how this fits with their ideas and hopes for their life and future.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L7N 3P3 - Nearby to Halton Hills.

While there are many types of addiction, they all can cause trouble for you or someone else in your personal or work life. Perhaps, someone’s addiction is their way of coping with something that has happened or is happening in their life. Although many forms of treatment are available, it can be quite challenging to do something about it. I will provide a safe, respectful space for you to talk about your issues, and to explore small steps and possibilities to start changing your relationship to the addiction. Addiction counselling can become a place for you to reflect on yourself and others in your life, leading to a meaningful growth opportunity.

Many addictions stem from underlying issues or experiences that an individual has gone through in the past. By exploring these experiences, clients are able to better understand why they may have turned to substances or unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with these issues. I strive to help clients develop more healthy coping mechanisms, build a more desired future and redevelop severed or strained relationships from their past.

Addiction can alter the way we think, behave, and relate to others. In psychotherapy, we will treat your addiction as the product or outcome of an underlying issue that has been created as a way to cope. Nicholas' nonjudgmental and relational-focused approach treats addiction as a maladaptive coping mechanism that is both the product and perpetuating factor of disconnection from others. Together, we may focus on building and restoring important relationships, managing your use, and building coping skills to replace your reliance on substances.

While substance use typically begins as recreational activity it can become habit forming and often develops addictive behaviors interfering with other areas of our lives, such as relationships, jobs, and finances. To increase awareness and insight into the reasons for using, I offer evidence-based treatment while providing you with options along the continuum of the Harm Reduction approach towards abstinence. We will explore any underlying emotional needs and relationships. By gaining insight to any ambivalent thoughts and feelings around changing patterns of substance misuse I will support you in the setting and achieving of personal goals.

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.

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.

Many approaches to addiction emphasize willpower and deprivation, but this only works temporarily. Alcohol, substances, or other addictive behaviours like gambling and gaming offer short-term relief of underlying issues at a long-term cost to one's relationships and health. As an addiction counsellor, I can help you resolve underlying issues, regain control, and build a sense of meaning and purpose, so you can start living the life you want. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to addiction recovery. I meet each client where they are at, tailoring my approach to each person's unique needs. Send me a message and we can connect for a quick call to discuss next steps.

Admitting that you have a problem is the first step to managing an addiction. The next step is to reach out for help and get support to discontinue the addiction. The journey from addiction to recovery has challenges and multiple research studies point out that the people who are most successful are those who utilize support consistently. The focus of my work with clients who want to discontinue an addiction is relapse prevention; helping individuals develop a lifestyle without substance use.
