I work from a foundation of mindfulness, CBT, DBT , and ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy).
My focus is to create a safe, judgment-free space where you feel you can be open about what you're experiencing and work through any challenges you have been enduring. You may feel uncertain about how to move forward or as though you are lacking the tools or insight you need to navigate your current situation. In our time together, it is essential that you feel not only heard and understood, but that you have gained the insight and tools necessary to uncover helpful solutions. Through this process, you will feel more confident in yourself and your capacity to manage whatever stressors come your way.

Although I have training in specific therapy approaches such as EFT for couples, EMDR, DBT , Mindfulness, etc.
Each one of us will struggle at some point in our lives, but these are particularly challenging times for many us. With lockdown, stress, anxiety, and depression are increasing, as are unhelpful coping strategies. Relationships are being tested. Many of my clients are seeking to feel calm and experience more emotional balance. Others are deciding that now is a good time to start the healing process from a past traumatic experience. Another common goal for clients is to start living in line with their values, or what they truly want in life.

Taking New Adult Clients. You feel anxious, or have trauma but you don't want to tell others or you are afraid they will judge. You feel alone. Relationships leave you feeling guilty, frustrated or angry sometimes and it's hard to cope with it all. You want a safe space to talk without watching what you say, being blamed or told you are wrong. You need validation, support and want to change. I help adult clients understand their mild/moderate anxiety, depression, work stress and trauma then learn simple and effective tools to cope better. Become more self-aware, feel more in control and set boundaries that help you feel strong.

Together we have worked on various concerns including, but not limited to, depression and anxiety disorders, addiction concerns, grief including loss of health, employment, death or injury of a loved one and relationship issues. In my practice, I offer professional and confidential services that encourages people to realize their strengths and expertise in their own lives.

I frequently use Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioural Therapies (CBT, DBT ) and Mindfulness.
I believe that all human beings have a remarkable ability to grow and change. Some clients come to me with a great deal of depression or hopelessness about their lives without the insight as to how they can be helped. I use a strengths-based approach as I listen to their stories to find the hope, possibilities, and resiliencies that coexist alongside suffering and insecurities. All therapies are evidenced-based and trauma informed.

I primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy in my work.
I believe that all forms of therapy have elements in common, and they all should work to foster self-compassion and self-understanding. I hope that my gentle and compassionate style will help to support my clients to explore their emotions, thoughts and automatic reactions in order to identify opportunities for change.

I support adults and adolescents who are struggling with a range of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, grief, substance use disorders, sleep disorders, compassion fatigue, moral injury, and others. My clients often arrive feeling at the end of their rope - lost, alone, angry, afraid, overwhelmed, thoroughly drained, hopeless, or sometimes just completely stuck. They want their lives to be better, but don’t know how to begin to identify steps to take or how to manage that change. They want help dealing with difficult emotions and they want their lives to make sense.

Dialectical Behavior (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 Fernie or for a Fernie 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 Fernie and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counselling.
