Addiction Recovery Services

It’s never too late to seek help

Problematic substance use takes many forms and impacts people’s lives in different ways. You don’t need to hit rock bottom to benefit from the support of an experienced and compassionate substance use and addictions professional.

I provide recovery solutions that are collaborative and individualized to help people free themselves from problematic alcohol and drug use so that they can live better, fuller and more meaningful lives. I also provide solutions for the family system to heal and navigate their way forward. 

My addiction recovery services include:

I work with people wherever they are at. Whether they are still consuming alcohol or drugs or not, we can create a disciplined change-plan to move forward with. Many people arrive to me with a clear desire to create change — whatever that looks like to you! Clients expect and receive 100% discretion and confidentiality in our work together. 

My services are available to individuals and families; employers; private enterprise; in-patient treatment centres; insurance companies; occupational health and disability providers; government agencies; and clinicians, physicians and psychiatrists.

My passion and expertise is designed to help you identify the approach to change that you decide is going to work for you. What works for one person may not work for another so I will present multiple solutions and we'll see which one best fits. 

Regardless of your goals for changing your relationship to alcohol or drugs and where you are in your journey toward a substance-free life — I can help.
