About

You've probably already tried to figure out how to feel better. Sick of being told that you're "too sensitive" or "overreacting," you're exhausted by how emotions and memories reach out and grab you, ripping you from your best efforts at stability. The effects of trauma, including high levels of anxiety, may make you wish you could simply just get rid of your emotions. It doesn't seem to matter how smart you are or how great a problem-solver you are in other areas of your life. The end result is that you're discouraged. I offer a collaborative approach with interventions that work. Come work with me and find hope and change.
Are you overwhelmed by emotions & have trouble calming down? Struggling with the effects of past trauma, perhaps haunted by desires to self-harm, fighting guilt, shame and crippling anxiety? Let me help you understand how your brain is trying to help, and how you can help your brain recover. Integrating mind-body influences helps treatment work better.
You are doing the best you can! But once you know what to do and identify what keeps holding you back, you'll be more in charge of your life and feel better. You'll have your life back. Since I want you to have your life back too, I offer a free 30-minute consultation to help you take the first step toward building a life that YOU feel is worth living.

Alison Caldwell-Andrews's Groups

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills (Adults)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a treatment that helps people regulate their emotions. DBT is particularly helpful for those who are sensitive and suffering or who feel that their emotions are out of control. Participation in DBT Skills Groups like this one require concurrent individual therapy with a DBT therapist. We cover all four modules in about 18 weeks: these include Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Distress Tolerance. Group membership is limited to 8 people.
