I am trained in EMDR, DBT , and lean on cognitive behavioral strategies as the backbone of my therapeutic techniques.
I enjoy helping individuals work through life's difficulties by facilitating a safe and supportive space to heal and find a path forward. I love empowering people to find their own strengths, build skills to manage their struggles, and learn to manage emotions in effective ways. I have an extensive history of working with adolescents in young adults in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I also specialize in working with athletes throughout (and beyond) their competitive careers.

In addition to trauma-informed modalities of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solutions-Focused Therapy, I practice EMDR to help individuals with integrating trauma to an empowered sense of self.
In order to heal and grow, a client will progress when they have the awareness, insight, ability and motivation to engage in therapy by being open to discuss their life challenges and put the effort in to make positive and healthy choices. Progress takes an open mind and patience to shift prior patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to become the best versions of ourselves.

I use evidence based approaches (EFT, DBT , CBT, ACT, and Psychodynamic) from an relational, developmental, and attachment-based perspective.
I believe symptoms are often the body’s way of communicating with us when something's off. Learning to recognize our symptoms as messages to listen to, we start making sense of the chaos, and feel less out of control. I’m committed to helping you get that kind of relief and clarity, so that it becomes easier to explore the roots of what gets you stuck. The therapy I offer is experiential and relational, providing the context to name what needs to heal, process what's overwhelming, build psychological skills and confidence, grow in compassion, strengthen relationships, and find a path forward with greater freedom, meaning, and hope.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Encinitas or for an Encinitas DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Encinitas and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
