My work experience has led to a passion in supporting those who struggle with substance use disorders, addiction, complex trauma and PTSD, personality disorders (such as Borderline Personality Disorder), and mood disorders.
Many of us have become masters in pretending that things are fine, when in reality our lives seem to be falling apart. Inside we feel like we’re drowning: overwhelmed by emotion, lost, & hopeless as we try to carry the burden of unresolved trauma, pain, & life’s curveballs hurled our way. Pushing aside these problems to get through each day to manage life’s responsibilities, we find ourselves numb, depressed, anxious, self-medicating, isolating, angry, & struggling with relationships. Together, we can work towards confronting unhealthy behaviours, understanding emotions, & healing from past trauma to create transformational change.

What obstacles stand in your path, today or everyday? Maybe these obstacles represent unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, relationship challenges, painful and traumatic life experiences, chronic stress, worry, and overwhelm. I am eager to take the journey with you to explore these obstacles, and to find adaptive ways to overcome them. Rather than navigating around the obstacles, what if we confronted them head-on, and leveraged them as a stepping stone on your path forward?

We are excited to offer comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) programs for both adolescents and young adults in our community. DBT is an evidence-based program designed to guide individuals from enormous suffering (e.g., thinking of suicide, self-harm, intense mood swings, difficult relationships) to a "life worth living." Many people struggling with these difficult problems have trouble finding success in more traditional therapy or make repeated visits to inpatient facilities. DBT programs are set up to break through barriers to treatment and help individuals significantly improve within 6 months to 1 year of treatment.

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.
