Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.

Life is full of demands and responsibilities that can feel overwhelming. Emotions and negative thoughts can interfere with you feeling and performing at your best. You want something to change but untangling these patterns seems too difficult. Mental health doesn’t have to be this hard. When you learn to harness your emotions and thoughts they can begin to work with you and not against you, allowing you to take ownership of your life. I believe this resilience is a skill we all have the capacity to acquire. My goal is to make quality mental health therapy simple and effective, so you can live a happier and more productive life.

The transition to parenthood can be exciting, but can also bring on feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and doubt, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. As moms, we've been there: struggling to conceive, postpartum anxiety, the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about baby and wondering if what you're feeling is normal. We work with women and their partners in all phases of life, with a strong focus on the fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting periods, and have received extensive Maternal Mental Health training and certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.

We all experience difficulties with loss, relationships, past trauma, and other life stresses. In response to these challenges, sometimes our thoughts, emotions and actions lead to anxiety, depression and other ineffective ways of coping. I have over 30 years of clinical experience working with substance use, mental health issues and other difficulties. When someone reaches out for support, they demonstrate great determination, hopefulness and personal courage to share in their private concerns. Making changes can involve focusing on personal values; learning and practicing new coping strategies and drawing on personal strengths.

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 L1N or for a L1N 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 L1N and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counselling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L1N are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L1N you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L1N and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L1N or family therapy in L1N.
