****No longer accepting Clients****Life can be overwhelming, unfair and full of the unexpected. As we seek change in our own behaviour and circumstances, we are often met with unexpected pain, anxiety, and anger that can be difficult to manage. Psychotherapy is a process in which we address obstacles in life and set goals to healing, understanding and moving forward. There is not challenge in life, big or small, that doesn't deserve the thoughtful reflection of therapy.

My practice is entitled 'Awareness: The First Step to Healthy Living' because I believe that if you are not aware of your strengths and potential and the nature of your relationships, it is not possible for you to move ahead in life. I treat serious mental health issues, addiction issues, eating disorders, mild autism, individual, couples and family issues (relational work), grief and loss, crisis intervention work, and, generally explore and build on positive self development.

If you're feeling stuck in your life and relationships, or you're having difficulty setting boundaries and managing uncomfortable feelings- therapy can be a powerful tool. When we are allowed the opportunity to be deeply listen and spend time with others (and ourselves) in a present, open way – healing happens. Humans are amazing and complex beings and making change in our lives can be a difficult and daunting task to approach alone.

Change is a difficult and often humbling process. I am patient, non-judgmental, and very approachable. Being patient, kind, and forgiving of ourselves in the process of change takes practice. Talk therapy is not about getting advice nor guidance: it's about learning to hear your own decision making process, discovering your value systems, and moving forward with small deliberate changes in your approaches to problem solving.

CONFUSED, DRAIN, or ALONE in your relationships? Are you putting the needs of others before your own? Are you changing yourself (like a chameleon) in order to feel appreciated? If the other person becomes your main focus and you modify your behaviors and subjugate your needs to keep the relationship going at any cost, you have codependency. CODEPENDENT PEOPLE are MAGNETS for ARROGANT, NARCISSISTIC personalities. The ensuing relationships can stumble along for a long time, requiring huge amounts of effort and energy to keep up until finally they fall apart. When they do, you feel betrayed and abandoned (codependent's biggest fear).

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