Dr. Michael Ellery and Associates provide psychological services for those who want help with thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. We are a multidisciplinary team with a range of talents and interests, who value compassion and evidence-based therapies, like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
In addition to assessment and therapy for problems with anxiety, mood, trauma, and difficulties with sex and relationships, we have a particular interest in Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), which is a team-based approach that can be helpful for complex problems, like eating disordered behaviour and addictions.
The team of clinical associates is supervised by Dr. Ellery, who is a registered psychologist. Many private insurance plans cover the services of a registered psychologist, and some cover the services of supervised clinical associates. Please check with your insurer if you have questions about your coverage.
The rates for services vary by team member. Individual sessions are typically 50 minutes long and rates range from $150.00 per 50 minute session (with Veronica) to $220.00 (with Michael). DBT Skills Training groups are also available to some clients. DBT groups are two hour sessions that run once per week for 24 weeks at a cost of $100.00 per two hour group. Please contact us with any questions about our services, or to book an appointment.
To the best of our knowledge, we are the only private practice team in Manitoba that offers standard DBT, in line with established scientific protocols.

Dr. Ellery also provides training and consultation to other mental health professionals, with special interests in co-occurring mental and addiction, and in adapting DBT to meet the needs of clients in a variety of clinical settings.
