There are many kinds of addictions and they all have "loss of control" as their foundation. Substance abuse is rampant in our country, and yet it always begins and ends with the individual. Happiness, wellbeing, peaceful feelings...these are all attainable without the use of substances. It's just often easier and faster to use drugs or alcohol to attain them! Treatment focuses on the uniqueness of each person and the talents and gifts they were given, but are not using in their lives. Mindfulness meditation is a learned skill along with self acceptance and freedom from bondage to a substance. The ability to separate and befriend ourself is crucial to recovery.

Online Therapist / Coach

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.
