Art therapy is my favorite modality, and I like to incorporate art making in other forms of therapy, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), mindfulness, and play therapy.
***I am not accepting new clients at this time.*** Therapy is no easy task. (Yeah, I said it). It is a lot of work with ups and downs, just like everything else you've accomplished to get to where you are! Whether you are seeking help for grief, trauma, life changes/events, depression and anxiety, family and relationship troubles, stress, or any other issue, it takes dedication to the process of self-discovery. If you are ready, I would be honored to take the first steps beside you.

I draw from a number of evidence based, behavioural treatments in my practice (CBT, DBT , and ACT).
Do you struggle with your emotions? Do they feel overwhelming to the point where it seems like they are the ones deciding what you say and do? Are your thoughts and feelings so painful at times that you feel desperate to get some relief? Does it feel like you need more tools to better understand, experience, and manage your emotions so they don't get in the way of you living the kind of life you want to live? If so, I would love to support you in that quest!

I have a special interest and extensive training and experience in dialectical behaviour therapy ( DBT ).
Welcome! You feel like you feel for very good reasons. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are a natural response to real life experiences. Unfortunately, we can struggle to find our internal resources when these events occur, and then we have great difficulty using our resources and natural wisdom to make changes to get better. I work within a range of CBT and DBT informed strategies, to gain mastery over problems that can seem unsolvable. Are you frustrated and curious about why it can be so hard to get the basic things that you want in life? Is it hard to even know what you want? Do you wonder where to start? I can help.

When appropriate, I also apply Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy strategies.
I specialize in helping people who experience depression, anxiety, low self-confidence, and painful feelings in current or past significant relationships. My work involves assisting people to make sense of their emotional reactions and supporting them to use this information to make wise decisions for their life. At other times, I help people alleviate their painful emotions by using techniques that change unhelpful emotion states to more invigorating emotion states. I believe in practicing as a culturally competent therapist, striving to be knowledgeable, open and respectful of the cultural beliefs and practices of all people.

I also have training in DBT and may work with clients on skills.
As a queer, fat, person of colour, I am passionate about working with marginalized individuals. I know how hard it is to connect when your identity is questioned or misunderstood by service providers. I therefore work predominantly with folks who are racialized, 2SLGBTIQ, neurodivergent, and/or disabled. Often, those I work with have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder; experience identity-based trauma; struggle with relationships, emotional regulation, or impulsivity; want greater self-awareness or understanding; want to feel a sense of belonging, connection, and safety; or generally, want more joy in their lives.

As a therapist, I can help you navigate the difficult challenges that you face in life. I often work with people who feel powerless around stuck patterns that lead to relationship conflict, depression, or anxiety. Some of my clients are seeking to break free from habits that aren't serving them anymore. Most of my clients are looking for ways to take care of themselves better as they heal and grow through past or current experiences. My approach can help you recover from trauma, find relief from stress, and foster healthier relationships. I also have a faith background and can provide Christian counselling as an option.

Dialectical (DBT) Counsellors
Dialectical behaviour Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Counsellors practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical behaviour Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Edmonton or for an Edmonton DBT counsellor these professionals provide dialectical behaviour therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioural therapy, and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counselling, DBT counselling in Edmonton and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counselling.
