Using a variety of therapeutic approaches which include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness and Solution Focused approaches I hope we can collaborate together to help make life a little less hard.
Life is hard. Sometimes life can overwhelm us as we’re doing our best to manage different stresses such as relationships, work, school, and life changes. At times, seeking help from others can help us cope with life stressors by better understanding ourselves. Through understanding ourselves, we become more resilient and begin to regain control over the parts of our lives we feel we’ve lost. In therapy, I will work with you towards achieving overall mental wellness and wellbeing. Together we can create goals to obtain the positive shift in your life you’re wanting to make. The first step starts with reaching out.

Specific modalities I use include humanistic, anti-oppressive frameworks while integrating various evidence-based modalities including: CBT, DBT , IFS, EFT, and mindfulness strategies.
I began my career as a Registered Nurse specializing in youth mental health crises and eating disorders, gaining an appreciation of attention to the mind and the body in better treatment outcomes. As a psychotherapist, I work alongside youth and young adults, helping them gain a better understanding of themselves and those around them, cope with difficult relationships, change, identity, self-esteem, tolerating difficult emotions, and working through some of the pressures and challenges life throws their way. I believe in empowering youth and young adults in recognizing they are strong and capable of change.

My repertoire of interventions includes a variety of modalities: CBT, DBT , Mindfulness, psycho-dynamic and image-based therapies.
I have a formidable passion for helping my clients energize a joyful, loving and creative life. Let me help reduce your suffering, and overcome obstacles to your happiness. I want to help you achieve your goals and experience more creative flow, loving-kindness and joy in your life . My other goal is to protect your confidentiality and make you feel protected and safe during sessions. - - - How do I go about achieving this? Initially I do my best to make you feel comfortable. I listen with curiosity and empathy to build a therapeutic relationship based on kindness, compassion and unconditional regard. Research amply shows that this is the most helpful element of "talk therapy" no matter what modality the therapist uses. Once in session, I find that people feel at ease with me because I am naturally engaged, authentic and direct. I practice Martin Buber’s and Humanist psychology's philosophy of being fully present in a relationship framed by mutual respect. My approach is the opposite to that of those movie therapists where the therapist is silent and writes on a pad, aloof and distant.

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