As an Addiction Counselor, I believe I bring a unique set of skills and qualities, including a deep understanding of human development, patience, strength, and determination.
My focus is helping individuals overcome their addiction by providing support, guidance, compassion and empathy. I have always recognized that Addiction is complex, and requires connection, understanding, consistency, patience and an individualized approach to overcome. Having patience is also a crucial quality for an Addiction Counselor and recovery, as recovery is a process that takes time and consistent effort.
I have a background in Human Development and Disabilities through Westervelt College in Kitchener Ontario, my knowledge in human development allows me to understand the complex factors that contribute to addiction, such as childhood trauma, social and economic factors, and mental health. This knowledge helps me tailor my counseling approach to meet the needs of each individual person.
My goal as an addictions counselor is not just to help individuals overcome their addiction, but to enhance their everyday lives as a whole. I strive to help people develop the skills, tools, and resources necessary to maintain their sobriety and build a fulfilling and meaningful life.
