I take a holistic approach to working with people in recovery. It is my belief that addiction is at a basic level, a coping mechanism to deal with the pain we have from not having gotten all we needed as children. In working with people with addictions, I address the underlying issues and challenges that bring people to use and abuse substances, relationships, and all those things we do to fill that deep wound. I also work in a collaborative alternative health setting, where there are acupuncturists, a nutritionist and a naturopath to help support you in your recovery. Whether you are considering (or as my mentor likes to say, considering considering) recovery or are on your way, I would be delighted to help you on your journey.
