I specialize in working with people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder or those struggling with symptoms such as: intense and fast-cycling moods, unstable relationships, suicidality and/or self-harming, unsure sense of self, etc.
Accepting New Clients- Does life sometimes feel like it's just too much? Do you find yourself constantly searching for happiness while trying to manage feelings of stress, sadness, anxiety, anger, guilt, overwhelm, etc.? I work with clients to get to the bottom of what is stopping them from leading a fulfilling life, meeting their goals, and effectively coping with life’s ups and downs. I offer a safe space for my clients to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences; to learn to manage their emotions and relationships effectively and with integrity; and to make meaningful and lasting changes.

I am trained in the following treatments: Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for Trauma, Prolonged Exposure (PE) for Trauma, Emotion Focused Family Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for depression, anxiety and psychosis.
Hi, my name is Steve Gates and I have been working in mental health for 15 years with 7 years working as a counsellor with the Nova Scotia Health Authority. In my work, I try to blend my training with your expertise about you. Using this approach, I have seen people make progress through situations that truly seemed impossible. In my experience, once people accept where they are and make realistic goals, they tend to make progress. The “feel better” part does seem to take time, but it tends to follow the changes.

Do you find yourself stuck in a cycle of emotional pain, where you seem to be living through the same suffering over and over again? You may have insight into some areas of your troubles but feel overwhelmed when making changes. Persistent struggles represent ways of coping that have developed over time, usually starting in childhood. As your therapist, I want to learn about how your life experiences have shaped how you see yourself and how this impacts your world. It is always my goal to make my clients feel supported and safe to fully experience uncomfortable emotions as they come up.

I am best able to help clients who are desirous of making changes in their lives and understand that "the slower you go, the faster you get there". My practice provides a safe space for patients to put all of their thoughts and feelings into words. As patients talk, they learn about themselves and better understand their journey. As the unconscious becomes conscious, patients are able to make more thoughtful and meaningful choices and thus begin to live more full and meaningful lives.

Trauma has a way of showing up in an intrusive way, it shows up with no real reference point for, it brings up discomfort and leaves us with this sufferance and pain. Taking the first step can be hard, while finding new meaning and growth is possible, it takes courage and vulnerability. I am here to walk alongside you, on your journey back to your authentic self.

I believe that each us carries inherent goodness inside of us, and sometimes we can become stuck. As a therapist, I see my role as creating a space where you can feel supported to explore the parts of you that are hurting and also to nurture your own inner compassion and wisdom. Working from a non-pathologizing approach, I believe that all behaviour meets a need. The work of therapy is to develop a deeper understanding of what purpose protective mechanisms like addiction, anxiety, and self-harm have played in your life, and what you need to feel supported to grow and change.

What has spared us from pain in the past often keeps us stuck and anxious in the present. Most of us wish to be free of our psychological suffering, but we find ourselves continuing to treat ourselves or others poorly in spite of our best interest to do otherwise. We all need a therapeutic relationship where we can learn to experience our emotions safely, regulate our anxiety, and turn against our defenses. I provide Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), a comprehensive form of psychotherapy that helps patients experience their emotions and understand themselves across a broad range of clinical concerns.

Borderline Personality (BPD) Counsellors
Borderline personality disorder is a chronic condition that may include mood instability, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, and high rates of self-injury and suicidal behavior. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
