I have lived experience with overcoming addiction and discuss this openly with those I work with. I work with clients with where they’re at and collaboratively work towards their goals around addiction. I have a deep understanding of the twelve-step model and can work with clients who want to incorporate both more or less of this approach. I believe the substance or behaviour someone is addicted to is often the symptom and not the “problem”.

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

Addiction can come in many forms, from substance abuse, to food addiction, gambling, sexual addiction, internet addiction, spending addictions, workaholism, and many others. The root cause of all addictions is a lack of connection to all aspects of self and others.

Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Marriage & Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

In N1H 3W5 - Nearby to St Jacobs.

Any type of addiction is a coping mechanism to help manage a need that wasn't or isn't being met. I believe that in order to help with any addiction, it is critical to figure out what the 'why' of the addiction is. Once the 'why' is uncovered then I work with my clients to help them give themselves what they need, what they were missing. Often inner child work is involved in helping to get through an addiction. My belief is that relapse is part of the process, it is all information and I treat relapse as such. Part of the healing with addiction is healing the shame that comes with the effect the addiction has had.

In N3B 2Z1 - Nearby to St Jacobs.

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.

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.

Recovery from addiction is often fraught with many difficulties.

Addiction comes in many packages. Many people who suffer from addiction may suffer from multiple layers of addiction. Addiction is a condition in which a person engages in the use of a substance or in a behavior for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeatedly pursue the behavior despite detrimental consequences. Because addiction affects the brain’s executive functions, individuals who develop an addiction may not be aware that their behavior is causing problems for themselves and others. Over time, pursuit of the pleasurable effects of the substance or behavior may dominate an individual’s activities. In some cases a referral may be made.

In N0B 1S0 - Nearby to St Jacobs.

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.

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.

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.
