Victoria Mckee, MSc RCT-C CCC

Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate

209-3845 Joseph Howe Drive, Halifax, NS B3L 4H9

It is my goal to help my clients to understand their addiction, why they use and what keeps them going back for more despite negative consequences. I strive to empower people to learn how to replace self destructive behaviour, for healthy coping strategies. Often an addiction is used as a pain reliever to allow the user to escape from emotional pain, past trauma or self defeating beliefs. I believe everyone should be free from emotional pain, and shown a new way to be which is free from shame or blame. I like to use humour and a relaxed manner with my clients whilst maintaining a high level of professionalism at all times.

Nick Zwaagstra, MC:AT, RCAT, CCC, RCT

Registered Counselling Therapist / Registered Art Therapist

3621 Dutch Village Road, Halifax, NS B3N 2T1

My experience includes family support, mental health, & bereavement issues. I was also trained as a life skills coach - relevant to attending to feelings such as anger, handling stress – fitting addictions treatment. I also have a strong background in social work as well as counselling skills & I have worked with psycho-educational groups, goal-oriented and narrative approaches as well as systems theory. My counselling style embraces creativity and integrative approaches & creative expression - art therapy, in particular, with its use of symbolic language - gives opportunity for indirect narratives is very apt for helping people through difficult transitions and with addictions.

Addiction Therapist

Mike Buckley, PhD Psych, MA Coun, RCT, CCC.

Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT)

Within Driving Distance of Halifax, NS

I am an addiction specialist with over 20 years of addiction therapy experience and a PhD in addiction psychology. I use the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model and a holistic approach (in layman's terms - I work with each person as a unique individual). Some people benefit from 12 step approaches, other's do not. I have a wide range of tools in my tool box that help me to fine tune the treatment to the person - not the other way around. Recent brain imaging studies have convinced me that addiction is in the brain, not the bottle - and so I work extensively with people who have "process addictions" where gambling, sex, porn, internet, shopping, spending, and or gaming, are a problem.

Addiction Therapist

Janice A. Graham, Ph.D., RCC

Psychotherapist - Professional Therapy by Phone & Email

Within Driving Distance of Halifax, NS

Addictions and all compulsive behaviours can take over our lives and waste our money, damage our relationships and wreck our health and maybe even get us in jail. There are many kinds of addictions, gambling, substance, sexual, some phobias, porn, internet, cutting and many more. Specialized addictions counseling or medical care is advised when appropriate. Supportive, non judgemental, compassionate counseling with Dr. Graham will help you get insight into why you turn to harmful addictive habits. You will learn to identify the needs you are trying to meet and learn ways to resolve these needs with more healthy behaviours. Twelve step programs and other support groups may be discussed.
