My approach to working with addictions is very different to the AA model. Behaviors that are engaged in compulsively are seen as attempts to manage emotional state. Thus, while we obviously want to reduce the frequency of any habit, we also look at the feelings and reasons that give rise to the addictive behavior. I work with alcohol and substance abuse as well as what are called process addictions - addictions to gambling, sex, pornography, Internet etc. Therapy will include motivational interviewing (to help raise awareness of the benefits of change) and relapse prevention (to help bring about sustained abstinence). Utmost respect, sensitivity and confidentiality are assured.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

Addictions thrive on wounding. Anger, pain, emptiness and related self-esteem issues create vacant spaces that need "filling up" with that certain "med of choice." It can be any number of "self-completers" - alcohol, drugs, sex or even work. Through "med" use, we feel momentarily and artificially safe or "salved" (like Vaseline on a new burn). Whatever the vehicle, those dependent on a thing, substance or person pursue that fleeting "fix" because they have not yet learned how to self-regulate - i.e., how to take care of themselves/love themselves and gain a stable footing from the inside out. This will be central to our work together. I am honored to journey to that special place with you!

People tend to think of addiction as a problem with alcohol or drugs, however we can be addicted to work, sex, food, gambling, pornography or even internet use. If you have experienced personal, family, or legal consequences as a result of addiction issues, we can help individuals and families learn better ways of coping with life on life’s terms. We work with with codependency, chronic relapse, and co-occurring mental health disorders that are frequently part of the addiction cycle. If you believe that there are others who have been where you are right now and are not there any longer, you may be ready to make meaningful changes. The work can be hard but you do not have to do it alone!

If you are sick, you would see a doctor. So if you are distressed or anxious, why not see a counselor? Seeing a counselor never means that you are incapable of solving your own “issues”. Seeing a counselor allows you to gain a different insightful and experienced perspective into your situation and possibly provide you with just the right guidance that you need. We have met many people with different situations in their lives or going through different circumstances that hoped that ignoring the problem would cause it to go away or somehow be resolved. What we have learned is that the exact opposite occurs.
