I work with couples dealing with addiction in order utilize one of the most important allies in an addict's support system, their spouse. This is possible only if there is adequate safety within the coupe and if the person with the addiction is willing to get individual support for the personal work required. I help the couple talk about their feelings and what they need, to understand each other and how to best support each other. If there are unhealthy dynamics in the couple, I help identify what these are and to make the changes necessary for healthier interaction and a stronger emotional connection.

Along with a more conventional form of therapy for addictions, I will also focus on the cause of addictive behavior and will utilize less conventional methods of ferreting out the conditions, criteria, and even purpose (how does addictive behavior benefit you?) behind the behavior. Addictions are a complicated issue, and the more the client understands the deeply rooted causes of their behavior the better chance he or she may have in controlling the condition. It isn't just about stopping the behavior but discovering the meaning behind the choices being made.

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.

We can get adicted to anything that makes us feel good! Especially living in an "addictively oriented" society, it is easy for anyone to become addicted to a variety of things, like substances, relationships, processes, etc. I help people understand the process of addictions, and together we can work to overcome both the addiction itself, as well as learning to deal with the usually very human desires which are feeding it. The goal is to be able to life with, or through, the good and the bad without getting stuck in unhelpful ways of coping with life's challenges.

600B Magnetic Drive, North York, Ontario M3J 2C4 | 416.830.5285

Addictions are a cry for help. I don't focus on the addiction, but the problem underneath the addiction, such a abandonment, family relationship issues, loneliness, unresolved grief, family secrets, rigid family rules, verbal or non-verbal. I uncover the reasons why the person became addicted, and then focus on new ways to replace the addiction with more healthy coping stances.
