We all strive to avoid painful experiences and we can use a variety of things to take away our pain. However our downfall begins when we continuously rely on this vice to feel something, to get rid of a painful emotion, or to control our reality. I specialize in treating substance addictions where drugs or alcohol are holding you in place despite your best intentions to break the cycle. When in treatment, I see you as a multifaceted person, looking beyond the addiction as a small component of your identity and self-worth. I want to work with you to accept instead of fighting the past, embrace the present moment, move past relapse, and commit to your personal goals of recovery.

Approaches to addressing addictions really vary from one treatment setting to another. My approach focuses on helping people manage their addictions. Not everyone chooses abstinence, and not everyone needs to. In fact, for many problem drinkers learning to become a controlled drinker can offer a more sustainable way of living. I tend to work with people to help them manage their addictions in a way that is sustainable, and in a way that works for their personal situation.

We all need strategies to cope. Some of us have sufficient adaptive coping strategies to deal with the pain we have been dealt. Some of us haven't been so lucky. And in the absence of adaptive mechanisms to manage pain, what's left are maladaptive alternatives. Substances don't cause addiction. Pain causes addiction. While abstinence may be an important first step for many, it's at best half the picture. An abstinent person whose still in pain is a person whose white-knuckling sobriety. By working with clients to not only stop the behaviour, but to resolve the pain it's medicating, I help clients move from resisting the urge to not needing the crutch.

Many research studies have confirmed that addictive behaviors are usually caused by underlying feelings of anxiety. In other words, if you have developed an addictive behavior (i. gambling, substance dependency, etc), there is great likelihood that you experience excess feelings of worry and anxiety. Psychotherapy can specifically offer you strategies to manage the addictive behavior while helping reduce the feelings of anxiety that fuel and perpetuate the addictive behavior. Typically therapeutic modalities that help anxiety management (Mindfulness stress reduction, EMDR) have promising effects on treating various types of addiction.

I have previously worked in the feild of substance abuse. I use a harm reduction philosophy and provide an empathic environment for you to process your pain/emotions.

Many people with substance abuse difficulties also have mental health issues which I can also help with. I can also assit with co-creating a relapse prevention plan.

Sadly, addiction is more than a surface issue. It’s any habit that controls you - your own healthy perspective or behaviour compromised. It can be: smoking, drinking, drugs, gambling, gaming, shopping, fetishes, cutting, porn, unsafe sex, unhealthy eating, self negating, bulimia, compulsive message checking, even too much time online. Elimination or control of such a habit is only a partial answer. There’s more going on. What led you to develop the addiction in the first place? In therapy a key issue I will help you look into is what you can do instead. You can realize why you came to lean on an unhealthy behaviour, then learn to Mindfully notice other options you have in the moment.

We all have patterns that take on a life of their own; drive us toward harm rather than good. Addiction is most usefully understood in this way. It can show up as a substance or behaviour that may merely draw our attention too often or dominate our waking hours. All addiction arises from attempts (conscious or not) to survive otherwise unbearable situations by distracting ourselves from thoughts or feelings that we become deeply afraid to face. Through increased awareness and understanding of what we are running from, building our resilience & developing skills to face those buried experiences, you can become whole again and get back in control of your choices.

Addiction can be a real challenge to beat - and most often my patients have tried everything from cold turkey to AA. There's a new way of thinking about addiction that can inform your treatment with powerful outcomes. Recent research out of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver BC Canada has us approaching treatment and sobriety in a more comprehensive way that is well beyond just AA or those white knuckle approaches. Let's sit down and talk. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, it is time for change - and let's work together to see if this new approach can finally make the difference for you. 1-800-699-3396

If you are struggling with addiction then it is time to take action now. Any addiction can be harmful and it can take complete control of your life. Physical addictions are related to food, drugs, alcohol and mental addictions are related to gambling, video games etc.. In fact any mental or physical activity which creates dependence and it is beyond your control, can become an addiction. It means you are not In-dependent but you are Out-dependent. In my experience people can even be addicted to anyone or anything. Integrative psychodynamic therapy can give you permanent solutions although it can take some time. But who would not like to enjoy the idea of living an independent healthy life?

Are you struggling to overcome addiction? You do not need to struggle alone - any addiction, whether to drugs, alcohol, pornography, internet, or any other behaviour that you want to change - is powerful. Our thinking patterns, behaviours, emotions, and the pure power of habit itself re-inforce each other and can keep you feeling trapped in the power of the addiction. Together we will explore how to break these cycles. Contact CBT Solutions to learn how this highly effective, evidence based treatment can help you.

While sex addiction is sensationalized in the media, it is still a valid concern for couples as it may impede their relationship and quality of life. Despite no clear definition for sex addiction, it is a societal issue that needs to be addressed and one that may affect relationships negatively. As a clinical sexologist, I feel it is vital that individuals and couples are free to express their sexuality, but without taking away from their personal, professional, and family lives. Sex therapy can provide a way to balance these aspects, as well as strive for healthy and sexually fulfilling relationships.

Many addictions stem from underlying issues or experiences that an individual has gone through in the past. By exploring these experiences, clients are able to better understand why they may have turned to substances or unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with these issues. I strive to help clients develop more healthy coping mechanisms, build a more desired future and redevelop severed or strained relationships from their past.
