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.

Many of us develop habits as a way to cope with unwanted situations, thoughts or feelings. Perhaps your ways of coping with problems have become problems of their own. What keeps you stuck in unhealthy habits (like drinking alcohol, smoking, watching pornography, gambling, etc)? Is it fear of change? Do you worry that once the addiction is gone, only emptiness - a big black void - will be left? Or that you'll fall apart emotionally? I promise there’s hope. There are approaches that may help including talk-therapy, CBT and mindfulness techniques. Please book an appointment to learn more about how you can heal from addiction. *Substance withdrawal management services are not offered

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

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!

Registered Psychotherapist

125 St George St. West unit 6, Fergus, Ontario N1M 1H8 | 519-766-3978

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.

Substance abuse or addiction can seriously affect a person’s life. It can cause physical health or mental health problems, financial problems, family or relationship problems and sometimes aggression or legal problems. Left untreated, things often get worse. Motivational counselling helps people recognize the problem and begin to take steps to change. Sometimes addiction and mental health problems occur together; in this case, it is best to treat both. Cognitive behavioural counselling helps to increase awareness and learn skills to cope with stress, triggers and cravings to prevent relapse. With the right help, people can enjoy happy, healthy and productive lives.
