Alcohol and drug use can be very difficult to overcome alone. I will work with you to understand the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that are connected to your substance use. Together, we will develop goals that work for your unique situation and your level of readiness for change. Some people want to reduce their use, others want to reduce the harm associated with their use, and others may want to become abstinent. That is entirely up to you. As well, I can help you develop healthier alternatives to substance use, improve relationships with others, improve work or school performance, and address the underlying reasons why you may use substances.

Addiction often stems from deeper issues that must be uncovered. People use substances or behaviours as a way of numbing and escaping from their pain and unmet inner longings. I can help you discover those root issues and begin the necessary healing process. I will also guide you in developing healthy new ways of handling your pain and depending upon the help of God and others throughout the process.

Any behavior taken to an obsessive level can be defined as an addiction. Compulsive shopping, gambling, watching pornography on the internet, use of substances can all be considered an addiction. I believe that in therapy is important to identify the reasons that lead to the person's addictive behavior. If a person can understand why they use drugs or gamble, they will be better able to deal with that problematic behavior. An addictive behavior doesn't develop overnight and will not go away in a day, it takes time and persistence. In therapy I use Motivational Interviewing techniques in order to motivate my clients change addictive behaviors and restore balance and well-being .

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.

More people quit addiction than maintain them. How? By viewing this condition in new light and exploring what is valued more than the addiction itself. Positive change is in your hands and can bring positive return to you across many life aspects. Life skills are available to you and together with proven evidence-based techniques we can explore you, your values, your purpose and work towards the life you want to live.

“What is addiction really? It is a sign, a signal, a symptom of distress. It is a language that tells us about a plight that must be understood.” Alice Miller (in; Breaking down the Wall of Silence). “In the search for truth human beings take two steps forward and one step back. Suffering, mistakes and weariness of life thrust them forward, but the thrust for truth and stubborn will drive them forward. And who knows? Perhaps they will reach the real truth at last.” Anton Chekhow (in; The Deal) Conquering addictions is a life long process, filled with pitfalls and temptations. Therapeutic engagement is best thought of as a progression of stages, not in any particular order, but best taken in....

Addictive behaviors can be really difficult to give up. But, just because it is difficult does not mean it can't be done. We have learned to engage in our addictive behaviors for different reasons and what we have learned can be unlearned. With Cognitive Behavior Therapy, we identify our reasons for engaging in such behaviors and the thoughts that go with it. We get rid of the irratiional and enabling thoughts and replace them with more rational thinking so we start to feel better thus, choose to engage in more fulfilling replacement behaviors. To quit the addictive behavior, we do not have to want to quit. What we have to want is something more than the addictive behavior.

In my counselling and hypnotherapy practice when I am working with a person who has addictions I impress upon them the fact that in the true definition of addiction it is a life-long challenge. For example, an alcoholic is an alcoholic for the rest of their life. They can also choose to be "dry" (without alcohol) for the rest of their life. It is actually very important to acknowledge when a person is addicted because then it does not mean that the person is "weak" or not really trying to rehabilitate themselves when they experience a fall-back. It reinforces the necessity of staying away from the addiction because of the serious impact that it has on their career path and social life.

I work with adult and adolescent clients who are struggling with a wide variety of addiction issues (e.g. substances, eating, gaming, gambling, sex, etc.), and who are in different stages of working on these issues. Addictions often begin as a way to regulate emotions, or cope with anxiety or pain but sometimes these issues can take on a life of their own. I support clients to examine the role that addiction issues may be playing in their lives, and work with clients to find an approach to recovery that best suits their needs.

Registered Psychotherapist, Ontario

Addiction - drug, alcohol, food, work, sex, gambling, food - we can use almost any substance or process addictively- to numb shame, to feel better, control mood, cope and survive. The problem is it never fills us up - the addict can never get enough. It is a very big and positive step to come in and talk about an addiction, because denial is a cornerstone of addiction. I do not have a "one answer fits all" approach, nor am I naive about the hold an addiction can have. I will motivate and make available treatment options, as well as offering individual support as long as required.
