Technology Addiction


Over the past few years, Dr. Kincade has become increasingly alarmed by the number of people that she sees in both professional and personal settings, whose lives are being negatively impacted by the role that technology over-use has taken in their lives. Technology related problems can range from the over-use or addictive use of texting, social media, video gaming, internet surfing, and more. Common challenges experienced by individuals with maladaptive technology habits include: anxiety, low mood, insomnia, impaired social interaction skills, relationship problems, bullying, and a lack of productivity.

It seems quite likely that we have potential to face an epidemic of psychological, social, behavioural, and emotional disorders as a direct consequence of technology over-use and addiction. Because of her tremendous concern for the avalanche of problems that may accompany this technology over-use epidemic, Dr. Kincade has chosen to make a major focus of her practice to work with people to find a better, healthier balance for the use of technology in their lives.
