I draw from Internal Family Systems (IFS), as well as DBT and EFT, to help clients trust their internal experience, feel more empowered, and fulfil unmet needs.
I do not believe people come to therapy because they are "ill" or there is anything "wrong" with them. Instead, I think we all have a natural drive towards self-understanding and personal growth. Some people seek my help because they feel flooded or stuck in painful emotions or unsatisfying relationships. Others have developed ways of coping with unbearable pain that lead to additional problems and suffering, such as impulsive, risky, or addictive behaviours. Sometimes, it is past trauma that needs to be explored and re-processed so these experiences do not continue to negatively affect the person's sense of self and relationships.

Specializing in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy ( DBT ), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-Based Therapy, I’ll help you skillfully navigate the mind and your emotions so you can start to function most optimally where it matters most.
Life is full of demands and responsibilities that can feel overwhelming. Emotions and self-defeating thoughts can interfere with you feeling and performing at your best. You want something to change but untangling these patterns seems too difficult. When you learn to harness your emotions and thoughts they can begin to work with you and not against you, allowing you to take ownership of your life. I believe this resilience is a skill we all have the capacity to acquire. My goal is to make mental health therapy practical and effective, so you can live a happier and more productive life.

I have been trained in cognitive and dialectical behaviour therapies (CBT and DBT ), mindfulness and solution-focused therapy.
We all go through many life transitions and experiences that shape who we are and how we view the world around us. They may be high-school difficulties, moving away from home, the loss of a family pet, a major career decision or receiving a diagnosis. These challenges can leave us feeling overwhelmed with emotions like fear, sadness, grief and anxiety, and can make it difficult to reach our goals and move towards the life we want for ourselves. I believe that people are experts in their lives and that my role is to work in collaboration with you to overcome barriers and work towards your version of an enriching and meaningful life.

I use a variety of approaches; CBT, DBT , psychodynamics, mindfulness, + others.
I am a Registered Social Worker practicing on-line psychotherapy (weekends). Having a messy life is what it means to be human. At times we need help to understand how the mess happened and tidy up a little. Other times we need to find a path through the mess, and out. Sometimes, we just need to accept the mess as it is and keep on going. I offer warmth, genuineness, playfulness and empathy as you wind your way through the complexities of living a life of meaning despite the mess. I offer a safe space, help and support; may that be to build practical coping skills, or to get in touch with your inner wisdom (we ALL have inner wisdom).

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