Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), CBT and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy ( DBT ) I take a strength-based and person-centred approach - I believe that you are the expert of your experiences.
Sometimes we feel exhausted, defeated, or like we are constantly battling with our brain and might need some assistance to sort through our thoughts, feelings, or emotions. Especially with the ongoing uncertainty of Covid-19, which can present additional pressures. You may be experiencing the added stress of fear, anxiety, and/or financial struggles. Whatever the case may be, therapy can assist in navigating life stressors, building resiliency, and overcoming negative thought patterns that keep us "stuck". Using a biopsychosocial model, biological, psychological, and social factors are all considered to ensure a holistic approach.

Here’s what I do to help. I integrate key therapeutic principles drawing on a wide range of psychodynamic, cognitive behavior and dialectical behavior modalities, in which I invite you to sit down with me in a relaxed, safe, informal way, and talk. If you've never been in psychotherapy, it can be hard to believe that "just talking" can be helpful. But if you’re depressed, anxious and feeling bad about yourself, you can be profoundly helped by an in-depth conversation in which you come to create greater self-understanding, discover insights and meanings, recognize patterns, and explore options and skills.

As a psychotherapist, I have been trained in various therapeutic approaches including CBT, solution-focused therapy (SFT) and dialectical behaviour therapy ( DBT ), and follow a holistic, eclectic and client-centred approach.
I encourage all of my clients to enter sessions with an open mind, have a willingness to learn and be open to self-reflection. Patience is also key when we are on the path of healing, and when we stop trying to rush the process, that is when we can best notice the changes we have already made.

Dialectical Behavior (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 Barrie or for a Barrie 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 Barrie and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counselling.
