YES I am taking clients! If you are looking to start or expand your journey towards mental wellness, I can help. Whether you have a specific mental health concern, experienced a trauma or stressful life event, or feel that things just seem a bit "off", counselling can help everyone in a variety of ways. I can help you better understand yourself and your actions/reactions to your environment, which allows space for a calmer, clearer life path. Therapeutic exploration and re-establishing connection to our 'felt sense' (our mind-gut-body connection) can provide the safety, relief and empowerment needed to heal and move forward.

Overwhelming emotions, negative thought patterns, and painful past learning can make it hard to be in our own heads. Sometimes we end up fighting ourselves or getting in our own way as we try to manage our pain. The things we try might not work, like trying to use shame and self-criticism to bully ourselves into feeling better. Or, they only help in the short-term, like numbing, avoidance, obsessing, or trying to control everything. By learning to work with ourselves differently, we can learn new, more effective ways to move us forward into a life we want to be living.

Everyday stress, overwhelming life events and/or trauma can have significant impacts on our mental and physical well-being. In an attempt to relieve this suffering, we may develop certain coping strategies over time. Although these coping strategies may be unhealthy or unhelpful in some way, they signify your strength and resilience. If you are having difficulties connecting with your own resiliency, or the intensity of your emotions feels too overwhelming to navigate on your own, finding support and guidance in a responsible therapeutic relationship is a good place to start.

Whatever thinking and behaviours you find problematic that have become interwoven in your daily living, you can unlearn. It will not be easy to learn new behaviours, ways of thinking, and communication, but the brain is capable of forming new pathways. You are capable of change. A lot of hard work and introspection are involved, and you may experience setbacks. This is part of healing. I am here to help in this process to make connections from your past, guide you in your present and support you to take charge to improve the outcomes of your future.

Most of us want the same things in life- purposeful living, harmonious relationships-peace. We want a sense of love and belonging. We want to be happy. These choices and challenges in life can be hard to navigate on our own but there are people who can help us reason and work them through. We deal with grief, loss, change and stress on a daily basis and we can learn healthy coping skills and how to create peaceful transitions. We are all capable of self- healing and of having a good quality of life and sometimes we need help in recognizing and overcoming our blocks in over-thinking, self esteem and behavioural patterns.

We all face difficulties in life from time to time. Sometimes, we find the strength to cope and to resolve things on our own. Other times, we need someone else to come alongside us, to walk with us as we face the challenges of life, to help us build our strength and resources to more effectively move forwards towards finding the solutions we seek. Counselling can help in this process. I offer counselling in Kincardine, ON (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays) and Owen Sound, ON (Tuesdays), as well as online and telephone counselling.

Borderline Personality (BPD) Counsellors

What is the most successful approach to treating borderline personality disorder?

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is considered the gold standard of treatment for borderline personality disorder. An evidence-based treatment, it addresses the extreme emotional reactivity, the relationship difficulties, and the acts of self-harm that create so much distress for BPD patients. DBT is a comprehensive program that includes both regular individual psychotherapy sessions and weekly group sessions of skills training.

What happens in treatment of borderline personality disorder?

Treatment typically consists of weekly individual therapy sessions that last an hour and group skill-focused instructional sessions that may last up to two hours. Patients are typically given homework “assignments” in which they are asked to practice in their daily life the skills they acquire in therapy. Patients also keep a diary tracking their emotions and impulses as a way to know which situations are most problematic and to help them gain control over their own behavior. Difficult situations and feelings are typically reviewed in therapy sessions and more constructive solutions found.

What kinds of problems does BPD treatment help with?

DBT was initially developed to dampen the self-destructive impulses of chronically suicidal patients. It is now the treatment of choice for borderline personality disorder, a serious condition marked by extreme emotional reactivity, relationship instability, and self-injurious behaviors. Treatment of BPD helps patients tolerate the flux of emotions without acting on them, often with a specific focus on tolerating negative emotions. DBT addresses the core problems of BPD—fear of abandonment, low self-esteem, and impulsivity.

What is the goal of treatment in borderline personality disorder?

The goal of treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD) is to relieve the extreme emotional distress that patients experience—to curb their emotional reactivity, to minimize their inclination to self-harm, and to reduce their impulsivity. Toward these ends, patients are not only taught an array of new coping skills and techniques for emotional regulation, they are given opportunities to practice them. Another major goal of treatment is interpersonal effectiveness; patients learn and problem-solve ways to effectively communicate in relationships, especially how to ask for what they need as a way to minimize hurt feelings.
