Whether it is your first time reaching out for addiction support or you are far in recovery I can help support you throughout. Some individuals are exploring the impact of their addiction in their life. They may be contemplating making a change, sometimes pressured by consequences due to an addiction. I can support you through your transition of change. I am very open and non judgemental and am passionate about a harm reduction model, which meets the client where they are at.

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.

Using a behavioural and non-judgemental approach to addictions, we will examine ways to use harm-reduction techniques to explore and alleviate the challenges with addictions. These addictions can include obsessions, internet and pornography, sex, food, substance use, and others. We will map out the extent of the addiction as part of your life systems. We will explore the emotional experience underneath the addiction that motivates one towards disruptive habits as well as change underlying beliefs about self, others and the world.

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.

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.

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.

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
