Empowerment Through Skills with DBT Skills YYC

About Us

Hello and welcome to our website! At DBT Skills YYC we are committed to providing high quality, evidence-informed skills training based on Marsha Linehan’s (2014) Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills Training Manual.  We are highly experienced and dedicated clinicians who strongly believe in the DBT Skills and, most importantly, we believe in the capability of the individuals we work with who do most of the hard work that involves learning and applying the DBT skills in order to make positive changes in their lives.  

Dawn Lewis and Tavia Nazarko co-founded DBT Skills YYC, Inc in 2015. Dawn is a registered psychologist and Tavia is a registered nurse.
