I draw from a variety of therapeutic styles, such as Narrative, ACT, DBT , and parts work, and will tailor my approach to your needs and preferences.
If you are struggling with overwhelming emotions, relationship issues, marginalization, or trauma, you may find hope and empowerment through therapy. As a queer, non-binary therapist, I focus on social justice and how oppression can both impact you and be resisted on a personal level. I will support you to work with overwhelming emotions so that they don’t control you or damage your relationships, and instead guide you towards a more fulfilling life. Through a supportive and collaborative relationship, we can deeply understand your experiences, help you heal from their impacts, and work towards your hopes for your life.

I use evidence-based practices including CBT, DBT , MBCT, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, the Internal Family Systems model, ADHD coaching, attachment-informed therapy, & Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I'm passionate about helping and connecting with others. My wealth of clinical and front line experience provides me with expertise and practical skills not possessed by most therapists. I view each client as an expert in their own lives, largely integrating their goals in counselling. My work is inspired by the science of neuroplasticity, thus I provide education about human behaviour and brain functioning to help clients make sense of their difficulties and see their challenges from a normalizing view. Many clients find this information to be helpful, hopeful, and empowering, as it gives us a roadmap for resolving their issues.

I use modalities such as CBT, DBT , person-centered, compassion focused therapy and trauma informed frameworks to address my clients needs.
I believe that no matter what you have been through, there's always a way to move forward and start to heal. Even in the darkest of times, there's a glimmer of hope and a desire to feel at peace and safe. What matters is that instead of giving up, you are seeking help and that means you are getting ready to use external and internal resources to move past what's causing you distress. I take an individualized approach that is tailored to the needs of each client. I believe deeply in providing a non-judgmental atmosphere where you feel safe to be yourself.

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 Downtown, Toronto or for a Downtown, 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 Downtown, Toronto and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counselling.
