DBT Skills for Veterans

These groups run twice per year, in the fall and in the winter/spring. Please contact us to get on a waitlist for the next group.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a manualized, evidence-based treatment approach to help individuals change behaviours, emotions, thoughts and interpersonal patterns associated with problems in living. Specifically, these skills can help with problems with anger, episodes of depression, irritability or anxiety, intense or chaotic relationships, impulsivity, stress and feelings of emptiness.

Group length is 15 weeks, and is conducted online by Dr. Stephanie Taillefer, Psychologist and Ms. Tessa Barrett, Clinical Social Worker.

Veteran’s Family Support Group

In this group skills training, family members of Veterans will gain knowledge and practice in the following areas:

  • Interpersonal Effectiveness (maintain and improve relationships, deal with interpersonal conflict, communicate effectively)
  • Emotion Regulation (understand and name emotions, decrease the frequency of unwanted emotions, increase resilience, reduce suffering)
  • Distress Tolerance (get through crisis situations without making them worse, resist impulsive urges, tolerate painful events and emotions, accept the things we cannot change)
  • Mindfulness (tolerate difficult emotions), increase mental awareness, and focus attention on the present moment.

This group is hosted by Maggie Logue-Prest, MSW and Danielle Harris, MSW and is conducted fully online. Please inquire about the next group’s start date or to get on a waitlist for this group.

Join Dr. Rebecca for Set Your Compass on December 31, 2022 and January 1, 2023

Not sure where to start?

Dr. Boehm has prepared a free goal setting masterclass to begin your journey toward wellness! Sign up here to watch it now.


Set Your Compass

Set your compass is the start point in the journey that Dr. Rebecca has designed. This course has 4 modules that are done at your own pace. Dr. Rebecca will guide you through a process to assess your current life circumstances – what is working, what is not, and what you can learn from your experiences thus far. In the second half of the series, the focus turns to your plans for the future. You will be able to visualize what you are working toward in detail, and begin to map out what shifts are needed to get you to your goals.

This workshop is about realizing and adjusting expectations, being real about the resources you have, looking for ways to receive greater connection and support in your life, and above all being clear and intentional about where you spend your time and energy.

If you feel unfocused, scattered, overwhelmed, or just ready for a real check-in, this is for you.
It’s not about adding more goals, unrealistic expectations or “raising the bar”; often it’s about doing less, being intentional, shifting energy, and noticing any areas that you are not worth your time.

My goal is to help you move from feeling run over by life’s demands to being in the driver’s seat.

Set Your Compass will be available for purchase in late December 2023.
