We are Mike and Chris, two dedicated and passionate professionals who specialize in person-centred therapy. Our goal is to help you achieve emotional wellness and personal growth. With years of experience and a deep commitment to our clients, we strive to create a compassionate and supportive environment where you can discover your inner strengths and transform your life.
We became aware of the profound impact that Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) can have on individuals struggling with emotional dysregulation, harmful behaviours, and interpersonal conflicts. This realization has inspired us and fuels our continued passion for helping others.
As person-centred therapists, we believe that every individual has the innate ability to grow and heal. Our role is to provide the necessary tools and guidance to tap into your inner resources and facilitate change. We are dedicated to understanding your unique experiences, empathizing with your struggles, and celebrating your victories.
Our approach combines the evidence-based techniques of DBT with the warmth and authenticity of person-centred counselling. We strive to create an atmosphere of trust, respect, and non-judgment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours with courage and openness. We also work culturally sensitively, blending Western and traditional worldviews.
A few years ago, Mike and Chris provided an 8-week DBT Mindfulness program for Indigenous and Métis participants before starting a 28-week DBT Skills group counselling program. Additionally, we have been providing individual DBT counselling to various clients.
Through STG Health Services Inc., we focus on building mindfulness skills, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness – the four core components of DBT. We aim to empower you to create a fulfilling life filled with balance and lasting change. Our services are available to clients in Saskatchewan (Mike and Chris), Ontario (Chris), and Calgary (Chris).
We look forward to working with you!
