I work from a holistic, trauma-informed stance, in which my role is to support clients in their journey of healing; body, mind and spirit are intertwined. I honour the sanctity of every human being, while seeing each individual existing within various webs of relationships with people, beliefs, and cultures. My experience as a therapist has taught me that many ailments and dysfunctions stem from an unmet fundamental need for connection, to self and others; to love and be loved, which can be experienced as feeling safe and simultaneously vulnerable. I draw on a variety of evidence-based practices, and spirituality, upon request.

At times, we have periods in our lives that are very challenging, seem slow moving or stagnant, and evoke intense experiences. Making the decision to begin counselling can be empowering, as it takes courage and a willingness to explore change. The cycle of seasons is a helpful metaphor in relating to cycles of change in one's life; a dynamic process that inherently carries potential for growth and renew. I accompany people in meaningfully learn about themselves and in cultivating tools to address what gets in the way of what they want for their life.

Substance Use Counsellors

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other clients in recovery; in outpatient programs, individuals reside at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counsellors, and psychotherapists. Staff often also includes people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other methods.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
