We may draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and other evidence-based tools.
Do you feel that your life is out of control? Do you have difficulty navigating stressful situations? Do you struggle with anxiety or borderline personality? Do you have panic attacks? Do you have trouble building or sustaining healthy relationships? Is your marriage in trouble? Have you experienced a loss or are going through grief? In therapy you will be heard and feel understood as we work towards developing practical coping skills. You can move to real-life solutions and tools that you can start applying outside of therapy, enabling you to feel less anxious, more in control, and better able to enjoy life.

I normally approach much of my work from a Cognitive Behavioral or Dialectical Behavioral approach - but as each client and their concerns are unique in its' own way, I am also quite versatile in my approach.
Have you ever experienced periods in your life where you are so troubled by stress, anxiety relationship difficulties, and/or depressed mood but is uncertain who to turn to talk about the issues in fear that you'll be misunderstood or that others simply just won't get what you're going through? If so, I would be happy to work with you to explore the issues troubling you.

Professional experience using Dialectical Behavioural Therapy ( DBT ), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness.
Life at times can be full of challenges, increased demands and responsibilities or difficult circumstances. These stressors can make it hard to function in day-to-day life, work, school, relationships, social situations and can impact one’s self esteem and self confidence. By addressing difficult and strong emotions, self defeating thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors, life can be made more manageable, productive and fulfilling. I work with people to help them develop a deeper understanding of themselves and to support their personal growth, development and to make meaningful change in their life.

Only recently have we as a society become aware of the importance of taking the time to work on our mental health. Like physical health, improving your emotional health can take many forms. Similar to a personal trainer at the gym, you may choose to start (or continue) your journey to improve your mental health and relationships with a Clinical Therapist. I work with couples, parents, families, and individuals to improve communication and coping strategies. It may seem impossible to find your way in the darkest moments, but with the right, non-judgmental support and guidance, it is never too late to find and shine your inner light.

Accepting clients in JUNE. Finding the right therapist and committing to psychotherapy isn't easy. If you’re ready to develop insight, self-compassion, and skills, l'm ready to use humour, energy, and warmth to supplement principles from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy ( DBT ), mindfulness, and other methods to customize an approach. I work with women 16+ in many stressful circumstances. We target concerns like moods, anxiety, perfectionism, self image, and much more. I am also particularly interested in the new research on recovery from trauma and loss, and find myself drawn to that area of need.

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