The Gambling Clinic

A wholehearted welcome from our founder:

Emerging victorious from my personal battle with gambling addiction, I founded The Gambling Clinic, a beacon for those seeking a way out of the darkness. This pursuit was born from the very depths of my struggle and the discovery of a calling that resonated beyond my challenges: to offer unwavering support to others battling with a gambling addiction in Canada.
Before this mission claimed my heart, I navigated the corporate landscapes of tech sales at Microsoft and the iGaming sectors at BetMGM, PointsBet (now Fanatics), and Boyd Gaming (Stardust Casino). My tenure in these realms granted me a rare perspective—an insider’s view of the industry’s mechanisms designed to ensnare players, from bonusing schemes and VIP programs to other subtle lures. I now use this knowledge to educate and shield you from the very tactics that feed addiction.
Compelled by my dual insights as a recovering compulsive gambler and a former iGaming insider, at 30, I redirected my path, towards earning a master’s degree with the dedicated purpose of launching The Gambling Clinic. My 15-year entanglement with sports betting, poker, and casino games has transformed into a dedication to service, channeling my learned wisdom into helping others break free from the clutches of gambling addiction.
The journey to recovery is one I know intimately. I am intimately acquainted with the doubts cast on advice from those who haven’t walked in our shoes. As someone who has walked the treacherous path and emerged whole, I stand as living proof that a balanced and fulfilling life is attainable. With my blend of experience, strength, and hope, I am here to guide you to recovery and to a life brimming with possibility.
