I work with people with addictions. Most of us are addicted to something. It's natural to want to feel good. Most addictions start from a place of pain -- an uncomfortable feeling, such as shame, or not feeling good about who we are. While whatever we're addicted to provides some relief, it doesn't last long, and we are once again back into a cycle of shame, relief, denial, etc. We have a well-developed pattern around our addictions. Together we will explore breaking your patterns as a necessary step in breaking the addiction, and look at how your core beliefs are impacting your view of yourself, and your relationship with others.

Using substances or activities in an obsessive and/or compulsive manner is a way of trying to escape ourselves. We do these things for good reason, but we don't always know why. This is where I come in. I will help you to find alternative ways of calming and nurturing yourself. And then I will help you to face the demons you are running from. With my support, you will learn to be a good parent to yourself. As you repair your relationship with yourself, your relationships with others will grow. You will no longer feel banished to a lonely world of one. And you will once again feel connected to yourself and the wider community around you.

Clients benefit by learning to identify and manage triggers for use, by finding new strategies for dealing with cravings, urges, thoughts, feelings, people, places, and things. Underlying reasons for use can be explored so that clients can better understand the dynamics of their use. Stabilization is achieved by working on goals for use and on maintaining these goals. Slips and relapses are treated as opportunities to learn and grow. A Harm Reduction model is used. Client and therapist work together in this caring non-judgmental space to identify the stage of change and to increase motivation for a healthy life. Clients benefit from learning how to reach out to others for support.

While I do not work with people struggling with addictions, I provide support and guidance for members of their families. Often as the spouse, parent or sibling of someone struggling with drug or alcohol addiction we find our own lives spinning out of control. We find ourselves enabling and rescuing - hating that we do and yet not knowing how else to respond to the chaos. Counselling can help to reestablish a sense of stability and clarity about next steps. A counselling session for individuals, parents or all family members can provide perspective, guidance and skills to help family members make choices and take actions that are helpful for themselves and often for the one in addiction.

Addiction is often born of a coping strategy that has gone awry and taken over much of our lives.I t's not only devastating to the individual with the addiction, but can cause significant harm to our family and friends. It's no wonder why feelings of shame can be so strong when it comes to addiction. Change is not only possible, but likely when you have the right support and are truly ready.

Addictions seriously impact our lives and make it difficult to through our days. By understanding the underlying reasons behind developing the addiction in the first place, we can identify and deal with these concerns and reduce/eliminate the need for the addiction itself. By engaging in "self-acceptance" surrounding our behaviours during this healing process, we are more likely to have a positive self-concept throughout this journey. We want to stop "needing" the substance we are addicted to instead of judging the fact that we are addicted.

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 work with couples dealing with addiction in order utilize one of the most important allies in an addict's support system, their spouse. This is possible only if there is adequate safety within the coupe and if the person with the addiction is willing to get individual support for the personal work required. I help the couple talk about their feelings and what they need, to understand each other and how to best support each other. If there are unhealthy dynamics in the couple, I help identify what these are and to make the changes necessary for healthier interaction and a stronger emotional connection.

Being aware that you have a problem is the first step on the road to recovery, one that takes incredible courage and strength. Facing your addiction without making excuses or minimizing the problem can be overwhelming. If you’re ready to make a change and eager to seek help, you can overcome your addiction and build a satisfying life for yourself. The ability to differentiate the behavior from one’s worth will offer the individual a greater understanding and compassion for themselves.

There are a variety of commonalities to all addictions. In my work with you, I will help you to identify what triggers your addictive behaviour and how to manage your temptation. I will educate you on what is considered a healthy relationship to your addiction of choice. You will also be connected to a series of resources outside of the therapy for additional support. Our work will also focus on helping you to develop a relationship to yourself, so that you learn to love, like and accept yourself.

Sex addiction is one of the hardest addictions to treat because it’s not about avoiding/quitting the “poison”, rather, managing sexual desire in the right context. And since it’s based in shame, internal discomfort & self-loathing, approaching it from a moral judgment standpoint only exacerbates the problem. As such, I conduct the treatment process from a place of understanding, so the client can reach in their darkest places to identify triggers and we can address them – the process also works with porn addiction. I take a multi-prong approach – identifying & treating root causes, eliminating the addictive cycle, replacing it with constructive ways of self-soothing, and building self-esteem
