Addictive behaviours may feel like comfort to the vacuum left by aloneness or detachment. The feeling of aloneness can start early. Children require a lot of emotional interaction to develop trust that their needs for support and caring will be met. If they don’t experience positive attachments, they may turn their needs for love and caring into physical cravings, which are easier to fill, and develop relationships with their addictions because they're more in control of them than those they look to for love and attention. I create a therapeutic environment in which individuals can deepen their understanding of their feelings and learn to trust their inner resources to connect with others.

Addiction cannot be completely understood by education alone. So many people are instructed to just stop doing it or just break the habit. Neural pathways once formed provide us with the equivalent to wheel ruts that in our thinking that we default to time and time again. We can with behaviour modification haul ourselves out of the wheel rut, but that wheel rut remains there waiting for us to fall back into when we are vulnerable in moments where we choose to medicate ourselves with our own addiction. Understanding how to rid ourselves of the wheel rut is part of the dual diagnosis addressing addictions - all of them.

My practice is focused primarily in the areas of food and alcohol addiction. I have seen firsthand the devastating effects that food and alcohol addiction can have on one's self-esteem, motivation, relationships, and a person's quality of life. Using the evidence-based tools of mindfulness, and acceptance and commitment therapy my clients and I work together to create a more compassionate state of mind that supports goal-orientated change and relapse prevention.

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

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.
