I offer dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), which is a kind of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for mood, anxiety, anger, addictions, relationships, trauma and other problems with thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I value compassion, non-judgement, collaboration, privacy, education, and informed choice in my work. I also value personal responsibility and teach people skills to help them meet the goals they bring to therapy. Prior to working in private practice, I was on faculty at the University of Manitoba, training therapists in evidence-based practices. The therapy I offer often integrates dialectical philosophy, Zen practice, and the science of learning and behaviour change.

I enjoy client-centred practice, working mainly in CBT and DBT. DBT is offered in individual and group formats. It is a collaborative, supportive, cognitive, and skills-oriented therapy. It also balances acceptance and change. DBT clients learn mindfulness skills, distress tolerance skills, emotion regulation skills, and interpersonal effectiveness skills.

I was an addictions researcher for 15 years and have more than 20 years experience in addiction and recovery. Like my approaches to other problems, the evidence-based treatments for addiction I provide include both more traditional forms (like 12 Step) and more contemporary forms (like cognitive-behavioural and mindfulness-based treatments).
