****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.

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.

None of us go through life unscathed. We all experience emotional pain and suffering, fear and challenges. How we react to our experiences dictates how we cope, feel and heal. Like unruly passengers on a bus, difficult emotions, feelings and situations come and go, how we manage them however is what's important. How we think about, process and try to "solve" difficult emotions often times get us stuck as we employ the same strategies that have at earlier times in our lives, served us well. Emotions (unlike math) can't be solved! Being mindful of these failed strategies is the first step to developing more adequate strategies.

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 Toronto or for a 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 Toronto 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 Toronto are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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