For over 20 years I practiced as a clinical therapist in several addiction settings. Our agency will provide comprehensive addiction assessments, establish clinical goals and then develop individual treatment objectives. In some situations clients require a more intrusive treatment intervention such as residential treatment. Where this is required, we will facilitate these referrals. Our approach to addiction treatment is based on the stages of change model, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural therapy. We provide insight education and strategies for triggers and urges. Establishing relapse prevention strategies is a critical component to our addiction counselling model.

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
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.
