The comedian Russell Brand wrote; “Drugs and alcohol are not my problem — reality is my problem. Drugs and alcohol are my solution.” It really doesn't matter if your addiction is pornography or cocaine or work or your cell phone- we all have solutions that we use to cope and deal with life. The problem is they often rob us of the good and beautiful things in life. I offer a helping hand in escaping addiction and working with the issues that our addictions mask.

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.

If you have an addiction and are actively pursuing recovery through an addiction program of your choosing, I am happy to work with you to uncover the roots of your addictive behavior. I am not a good choice for a first line of response to recovery but I'm a good addition to your ongoing recovery work. Addiction is a way to change your emotional and mental state because you are finding it intolerable or distressing. Many addictions are fueled by underlying anxiety. I help clients discover and make sense of the foundations of their addictions in order to help them maximize their recovery process and by replacing harmful coping tools with newer, healthier ones.

It's only rarely that addiction 'just happens.' For most who have been caught in the web of addiction, it started for a reason. That reason may or may not be obvious, but through the counseling process, you can gain a deeper understanding of what drew you to substance misuse and why you continued using even when you knew it was a problem. Then you will also learn new ways meet those needs, ways that create vitality rather than disruption in your life.

I consider myself an expert in addiction therapy. My focus is not the addictive substance or activity. I focus on the root cause for why you engage in the various activities for the purpose of self-medication. As we flesh out the emotional and traumatic scars from past life events, you will find that your desire to self-medicate reduces significantly.

I do counsel clients that struggle addiction but ask that clients with serious levels of addiction be willing to attend 12-step group while in therapy. I may in fact end therapy with clients who are not wiling to simultaneously seek help from behavioral programs. My reason for this is that therapy will kick up deeper levels of disruption with clients that will further elevate addiction if they are not involved in other forms of recovery. I do believe that relational therapy can heal deeper levels of addiction once stability is achieved in behavior.

Addiction of any kind has a particular hold on the person experiencing it and the people around them. It can be hard to express and even harder to honestly take a look at. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential place to explore the effects of addiction. I am honest and direct but gentle with clients who are seeking help in this area. My approach is harm-reduction. Most often clients have success with cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive therapy and mindfulness. Tackling the effects of addiction and choosing to work hard to get better is a life-changing positive decision that will allow you to free yourself from unwanted behaviors and let you live the life you want.
