My name is Jason McCarty. I am currently a therapist in private practice working with individuals and couples. I work with addictions, anxiety, depression, finding meaning, life transitions, among others. See my website for more details at www.jasonmccarty.ca. I was the Program Coordinator of a drug and alcohol treatment center for 2.5 years and ran therapy groups prior to that for the same organization. I have a Masters degree in Psychology with a Specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. This degree helps me to understand the individual, as well as, the system in which that individual is a part.
I came across addictions work and have grown a real appreciation for those who struggle with addiction as well as what addiction ultimately represents in one’s life and society. We must look at the deeper implications and purposes for addiction.
