Group therapy is offered in collaboration with Connect Psychological Services.  We offer group-based Mindful Transdiagnostic Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MTCBT) for individuals suffering from a range of emotional problems, including depression and anxiety.

The MTCBT program is grounded in clinical research. The program is unique in that it targets both cognitive and behavioural processes that cut across  various mental health problems. Members learn to recognize and shift unhealthy behavioural and cognitive patterns, while bolstering  areas of strength and resiliency.

Mindfulness is woven into the MTCBT program to complement cognitive-behavioural strategies. Through mindfulness, members practice curious, non-judgmental observation. Members gain greater self-awareness through enhanced distress tolerance and non-reactivity.

 

The groups are both psycho-educational and experiential in nature. Members complete assignments and share personal insights with the group. The group environment is interactive and supportive. Members learn from one another and problem-solve together.

 

Fees:

One-session Orientation groups are held throughout the year, at a cost of $120 for 2 hour group session. 

12-session Core MTCBT Groups are typically held twice a year (Fall/Winter, Spring) at a cost of $900 (12 x 2 hour sessions). 

MTCBT Maintenance groups (held monthly) are available to anyone who has participated in the MTCBT Core group, at a cost of $75 for a 90 minute session.

Receipts are issued so that clients can get reimbursed if they have private insurance coverage.

Group dates will be regularly updated here, and on the www.mtcbt.ca site.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is an active, collaborative approach to dealing with problems that emphasizes client strengths and learning of skills you can use throughout your life.  Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been extensive researched, and has been found to be effective for depressive and anxiety disorders, including Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Panic disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, etc. 

 

New research is also demonstrating the additive benefit of mindfulness meditation,  transdiagnostic approaches, and schema-focused therapy. I strive to incorporate helpful strategies from other approaches in order to provide individualized treatment based on clients' needs.

 

Fees: 

Individual sessions: $200/hour. 

Sessions are typically 60 minutes in length, but 90 minute consultation sessions are available upon request.
