At Modern Solutions Counselling Services, we implement evidenced-based psychotherapy methods that help increase client's self-awareness and awareness of their environment. We use Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) techniques to promote new and effective ways of managing difficult situations that help individuals move closer towards their long-term goals. We also offer Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy to treat trauma-related symptoms.



A DBT and Trauma Therapist Who Understands

Hi, my name is Dawn Lewis. I am the owner and operator of Modern Solutions Counselling Services.
When I was young I knew I wanted to be a psychologist. I fell in love with Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and decided to take that path. As a registered psychologist, I specialize in treating individuals who experience symptoms related to borderline personality disorder, anxiety, depression, addictions, and trauma related symptoms. Additionally, I work with individuals who want to improve their relationships, their ways of coping with stressful events, and their overall well-being.
With over 16 years of experience, I have provided both individual therapy and skills group training to adults with mild to severe mental health issues.
I am very excited to expand my practice to include Registered Psychologist, Sarah Knight,  Clinical Social Workers, Dan Biggs and Chaya Goldenberg, and Registered Counselling Therapist, Abby Logan to the Modern Solutions team.
