I use a trauma informed therapeutic approach employing techniques of Compassion Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy to assist you in your journey of healing and growth.
I specialize in therapy for narcissistic abuse! Do you feel confused, doubt yourself and question your needs? Do you feel dismissed, invalidated, and uncared for in one or more of your important relationships? Are your feelings negated, minimized and you make yourself small to accommodate the other person’s unreasonable demands? You may be on the receiving end of a narcissistic abuse. Narcissistic abuse can lead to anxiety, depression and pervasive feelings of shame and self blame. Misuse of substances is often a maladaptive coping mechanism in the attempt to deal with constant emotional abuse, gaslighting and manipulation.

If you struggle to manage intense emotions, get through distressing situations or maintain stable relationships, then Dialectical Behaviour Therapy ( DBT ) may be suitable for you. It is a treatment best suited for problems related to emotion dysregulation (including borderline personality disorder, anxiety, depression, aggression, substance use, eating disorder, self-harm and suicidal behaviour). I offer both individual sessions and group, or both combined. Contact me and we can decide which model fits your needs best.

Based on principals and strategies from DBT and CBT, I work to create sustainable change that is focused upon becoming fully engaged and present in all valued aspects of life.
I treat issues that are principally related to difficulties with emotion regulation. When an individual is persistently distressed it becomes increasingly challenging for that person to be present for life in the current moment. This is especially the case when one comes to rely upon escape strategies in order to cope, such as behaviours that have addictive potential. When we are not able to be mindfully present, all aspects of our lives suffer.

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