My Approach

My emphasis is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). The term "dialectical" derives from the idea that bringing together two opposites together in therapy, such as acceptance and change, brings better results than focusing on either one alone. Through focusing on acceptance of experiences we can find the balance needed to change negative behaviors. This type of therapy was originally written for people with Borderline Personality Disorder. However, it has proven to be a successful tool in treating a broad spectrum of mental health issues. DBT will allow you to increase your communication skills and give you the ability to be in control of your emotions instead of allowing your emotions to control you. DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy which helps to identify and change negative thinking patterns and push for positive behavioral changes. It teaches skills to cope with, and change, unhealthy behaviors. DBT has shown positive outcomes in treating:

  • Anxiety

  • Behavioral Issues

  • Borderline Personality Disorder

  • Depression

  • LGBTQ Related Difficulties

  • Mood Disorders

  • Personality Disorders

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Relationship Difficulties

  • Self-Esteem Issues

  • Stress Management

  • Trauma

  •  Women's Issues
