People can be addicted to anything. Marie has tests that isolate the root of the issue. Is it unexpressed emotions? Are they bored? Are they anxious? Do they feel they are unworthy? What is the addiction trying to tell you. Externalize this and talk to it. This is a part of you that is trying to take of you but its not doing a very good job. Your job is to find out the issue and address. Marie will hopefully be able to teach you tools to do just that.

Addiction brings pain and chaos individuals, couples and families. I see addictions as poor and destructive coping mechanisms and work with individuals and couples to interrupt the behavior and work to process the pain underlying the behavior. I am very familiar with 12 step programs and CSAT work that help individuals and couples make sense out of the addiction. I also work within a complementary framework of attachment and the importance of strong close inter-dependent, not co-dependent relationships with the most important people in one's life, family. Call me for a consult about your particular needs and situation.

Addiction often overtakes whole lives and keeps its victims in captivity taking away the joy and freedom. I work with you and support you to fight it off and rebuild your life. 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.

Addictions can be very difficult to overcome, but there is hope. Clients will gain an understanding of what drives their addictions as well as ways they can overcome them. Many people feel that when the "home" of their life has been ravaged by an addiction, they need to do major renovations, or even tear it down and build a new house. I give you the tools to do that. Very often the addict has a partner that is also affected, and we are here to help them understand and help with recovery. Start on the path to freedom and recovery today. I work a lot with clients engaged in compulsive sexual behaviours such as pornography addiction and see great results in helping them recover.

Dealing with addiction is not easy. Addictions can put barriers between people and their relationships, families, work, and well-being. When the source of addiction becomes more important than everything else, it is time to seek help. I have worked with people from all walks of life: those who are working, with families; those who have experienced chronic homelessness as the result of their addictions; and those who are concerned about increased use of a substance or behaviour (drugs/alcohol/sex/gambling/shopping, etc.). I work with clients from a harm reduction perspective, in order to minimize the damage that a substance or behaviour is causing in a person's life.

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.
