Addictions or Substance Abuse

Jennifer Fukushima

Registered Psychotherapist, registered psychotherapist
Substance use related concerns can arise for many reasons. Often substances helped us to self-soothe in the past when we had no other tools or supports. I support my clients to uncover what is at the root of their relationship to substances and aim to provide them with new tools to cope with emotional challenges. I'm holding that some may choose an abstinence based approach, whereas others may prefer support in harm reduction.

I work primarily with those who are in later stages of recovery and those looking to enhance or deepen their experience in sobriety. This may involve exploring the roots of your substance use and/or seeking support for ongoing challenges of life and relationships. I have worked with those who have abused alcohol, marijuana and other drugs, or behavioural addictions such as shopping or video games.

My journey with addiction is deeply personal, having been marked by the impact of my father's functional addiction from a young age. Despite the challenges it posed to our family, his struggles provided a unique perspective on the insidious nature of this illness—one that systematically dismantles lives, relationships, self-esteem, and even financial well-being. While some may find it surprising, I consider it a fortune to have experienced the profound effects of addiction within my family. This experience became a catalyst for my healing and understanding of this intricate and complex illness. Today, as a specialized therapist and coach in addiction, I draw upon my personal journey to not only care for myself but also guide countless others through their path to recovery. Working with addiction is powerful because, behind the façade of this illness, attempting to soothe deep-seated pain, there is always a remarkable human being waiting to actualize their full potential. I view addiction as an illness that, with proper care, can transform into a blessing, unleashing newfound superpowers. Those who have survived the grip of addiction, embarked on a healing journey and acquired wisdom and tools can become agents of positive change in the world. Witnessing individuals transition from the depths of addiction to a purposeful and passionate life is akin to witnessing a superpower in action. The trauma, pain, and neglect that fueled the addiction often become the driving force behind a life dedicated to health, well-being, and positive impact. Approaching this work requires delicacy and depth. The individual undertaking the healing journey needs perseverance, a thorough understanding, and decisive action to transform the dark tunnel of addiction into a sea of light. It would be my utmost honour to guide you through this challenging and isolating experience, helping you emerge into a world of your own creation—a world filled with choices that fulfill your life and enrich the lives of those around you.

From a trauma-informed perspective, addiction is understood to be a manifestation of unresolved trauma for which the addiction is a coping method. I work to help clients better understand both their addiction and their trauma, and how to resolve both by learning more healthy and helpful ways of coping and by doing trauma processing. As Gabor Mate says "do not ask why the addiction, ask why the pain".

Registered Psychotherapist, MA, RP
Contrary to what is believed, addiction usually starts with a positive impact on a person’s life and even sometimes saves their life. However, as the time goes by, this creative adjustment becomes outdated and turns into a problem. Therefore, working with addiction should not be about illuminating the symptoms or the manifestations of the addiction, but rather trying to understand the reasons underlying the addiction and the function that it used to serve. A successful recovery is only possible through understanding and even respecting the addiction. Schedule a free 15-minute consultation to see if we are a good fit.
