Addictions, are characterized by an over focus and dependence on something (even a relationship) that serves to keep us disconnected from inner pain, and thus the ability to deal with that pain. Being locked in this pattern of dependence, can be quite destructive to your inner and outer worlds. I work with helping you to reconnect with your essential self, with helping you identify and address limiting and painful patterns, and navigate your way to the life that you want. If you are someone struggling with being in a codependent relationship I provide support to assist you with accessing your own wisdom to move towards a life and relationships that are more peaceful and fulfilling.

Feeling out of control and unable to stop engaging in harmful behaviours can feel shameful, over-whelming and hopeless. My approach to addiction treatment is based in a harm reduction model. This approach acknowledges that maintaining abstinence may not be a realistic goal. Without judgement we will work together to set realistic goals that seek to reduce the negative impacts of your addiction. You may choose to explore the roots of your addiction and any other related issues. It will always be up to you. Please reach out for a consult so we can assess whether I am the right therapist to help you move toward change and stability.

Gaining recovery from addiction will help you to feel empowered and more in control of how your life enfolds. You can begin to proactively choose beneficial goals and outcomes, rather than being at the mercy of a behaviour or a substance. Gaining the ability to live in the present--rather than, consciously or unconsciously, constantly focusing on capturing a future state promised by a substance or behaviour--can offer you new-found appreciation and joy in your everyday surroundings and bring you back to self-love.

Addiction is my specialty. I am an addict with 16 years of recovery and I have seen hundreds of clients with all kinds of addiction issues. My method is to address past issues that drove the formation of the addiction while simultaneously dealing with the daily here-and-now issues that prevent it from ending. I use a task-based approach to recovery where each task includes a combination of a variety of therapies. It gives the therapy a framework and backbone. And it also involved some homework on your part. Addiction recovery is not as complicated as it may sound. You do have to give it your all. And it helps to have someone in your corner.

I provide individuals with a safe space where they will have the opportunity to openly address any aspect of their life that may present difficulties while trying to overcome addiction. Psychotherapy can also be effective for individuals who have a history of addiction and are emotionally and interpersonally vulnerable. I can offer coping-focused psychotherapy to help you learn the practical and specific ways in which you can cope with your problems. These may be addiction, relapse prevention, panic, anxiety, and depression.

As a therapist, I know how challenging it can be to manage addiction. Addiction can impact the quality of our lives, our relationships, and our connection to ourselves. Therapy can provide a safe space to navigate addiction and explore what you wish for in relation to the substance or behaviour. Discussing the addiction can also provide us useful clues as to what roots the addiction, allowing us to navigate the core issue at hand and explore preferred coping strategies. Connect with me today for a free consultation to begin your healing journey.

Often, the focus of addictions counselling is abstinence. But my treatment philosophy focuses on getting at the feelings that lie beneath the symptom - the symptom of addictions or substance use. Substances or any addictive behaviors are driven by painful hurt, trauma, and losses/grief and working through these issues I can help you to better understand the role of substances in your life. You don't have to do this alone.

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.
