To aid in building empowerment I often borrow skills from CBT and DBT among other modalities to help nurture self-esteem and defuse distress.

I work to validate and support all of the effort that goes into caring for your mental health and calming stressful or negative thoughts. I believe in working collaboratively and building relational depth as we strive towards finding wellness, effective skills, and solutions to suit your needs.

Currently Accepting - Waitlist Over! Making change can feel like a daunting process. I am glad you are here. I support change through curiosity and being in the present moment. Though your past is important to help us understand your story, the focus will be on how we can change in the “here and now”. Suffering and distress can manifest in various ways, mentally, emotionally and physically. Listening and understanding to the cues your body gives you will arm you with the necessary tools to make changes in alignment with your goals. Only once we bring our thoughts, feelings and behaviours into our awareness can can we make change.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, EMDR, Emotion Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic Theory to help clients achieve their goals.
I work with adults and youth who are feeling distressed by issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, workplace stress, family conflict, loss and grief, blended family issues, physical illness, and self-esteem. Often these difficulties are rooted in life experiences that have contributed to feelings of sadness, anger, self-doubt, shame, and fear. In our work together you can learn to understand and change repetitive patterns of thinking and behavior, and learn to be more compassionate with yourself. We will also identify new skills and strategies that can help you to make positive changes in your life

Specializing in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy ( DBT ), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Mindfulness-Based Therapy, I’ll support you in building a life worth living and removing the barriers the impact your ability to thrive.
Life is full of demands, responsibilities, and goals that can feel overwhelming. Your mind/body is full of self-defeating thoughts, intense emotions and physiological responses that impact your ability to 'be your best you'. You agonize over it. You try to ignore it. You struggle and hope but it won’t go away. You are surviving instead of thriving and untangling these patterns feels too difficult. Since you don’t come with a handbook on ‘how to get it right all the time’, you will fail and feel defeated. Not because you are inadequate but because you are human! That said, it takes a lot of courage to know when you need support.

I utilize a client-centered integrative approach incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Interpersonal Psychotherapy and mindfulness-based approaches.
Sometimes we feel sadness and worry that we cannot seem to shake. At these times, we feel hopeless and helpless and believe that we have nowhere and no one to turn to. Dealing with these feelings alone can be overwhelming and unbearable. When we find ourselves at this low point, the only way to go is up. I am here to help you to reach that up point, and have a happier life. I am committed to reducing the suffering and distress associated with psychological trauma, anxiety disorders, depression, grief and loss, adjustment difficulties, and self-esteem issues.

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 Oshawa or for an Oshawa 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 Oshawa and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counselling.
