All of us experience addiction as part of our daily routine. However, when that addiction takes over and we loose sight of our priorities, it can destroy our lives. When a substance or habits interfere with our logical thinking and we prioritize our need to satisfy that craving over everything else it can ruin our life. Our relationship, families, friends and work can suffer and we often isolate ourselves to feed our addictions without judgment. I offer a safe place to honestly explore the impact of your addiction and to find ways to manage your urges to set you free. An addictions eliminates your ability to choose your actions, I can help you regain your strength to choose a healthy 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.

What we become addicted to and why is less important than what the addiction is doing for us right now. We wouldn't be addicted if it wasn't serving some purpose. When we look and the emotional pain, stress, and overwhelm the addiction is helping us cope with, we get to the root of the problem. When we see that the addiction isn't a disease or a choice, we see it as a method we have been using to cope with a problem.

As Gabor Mate famously stated: "The question is not why the addiction, by why the pain?". Addictive behaviours often start as 'protectors' for us, shielding us from pain and discomfort. Rather than focusing on the surface behaviour, I help individuals address the "85%" beneath our awareness that may include a lost sense of connection, trauma, fear or low self-esteem.
