Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. At some points, we can all experience difficult times and need help and support to guide us through. Experiences that have caused pain, anxiety, grief, loss, or shame can feel overpowering if left unrecognized.

Working side by side with you on your journey is a privilege. My approach not only focuses on relief from distress, but also helps to develop new tools and clarity of thoughts and feelings through open exploration. A process that can ultimately open up greater inner strength, joy, self-compassion, and serenity.

As a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor & Master Therapeutic Counsellor with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada, a Gottman Method Couples Therapist, and a Certified Canadian Addiction Counsellor, I provide compassionate, confidential, and insightful counselling to individuals, couples, and families in the areas of Addiction & Recovery, Codependency, Anxiety, Trauma, Loss & Grief, Self-Esteem, and Coaching.

Chris Bader's Groups

Edgewood Intensive Outpatient treatment- Addiction

Everyone affected by addiction deserves a chance to heal. Addiction is a chronic, progressive disease, but highly treatable. Using a combination of intervention, education, group therapy, individual therapy, and aftercare support has proven effective in the treatment of substance abuse. Addiction is a family disease - stealing individuals of their own self, and those around them with a loss of identity and life dreams. Freedom from addiction means regaining a life of dignity, integrity, and healthy self-esteem; a life in which physical, mental, and emotional health is restored and the spirit healed.

More about this group

Facing Addiction as a Family

Addiction affects more than the individual. Our educational and support programs help families learn more about the disease of addiction and how it affects them. Under the direction of experienced addiction and codependency professionals from AXIS Intervention Services, our family program is a weekend filled with education about addiction, codependency, boundary setting, intimacy, spirituality, communication, self-care, interpersonal relationships, and recovery planning for individuals who have loved ones with substance use disorders. You will also be introduced to counselling and treatment options available for your loved one. Space is limited. Contact us for next available dates.
