I like to incorporate a variety of modalities which include Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior, Existential, and Client Centered.
Life can be hard and at some point in our lives we may feel stuck with certain challenges. Getting support from someone on the outside can sometimes help you understand more clearly what is going on. We can uncover the obstacles that are holding you back and explore how you can find more peace in your life. I work with people on a wide array of issues that include difficult relationships, depression, anxiety, life transitions, parenting, grief, and loss. I also do a lot of couples work so I can also assist with relationship issues with intimate partners.

I’ll teach you about cognitive behavioral therapy, throw in some dialectical behavioral therapy, challenge your thought process with exposure prevention response therapy, and talk deeply about your perception of yourselves with narrative therapy.
Let’s not waste any more time being unhappy, unfulfilled, and stuck. To thrive as people, we need to recognize our values and goals. Those values and goals change throughout time, as we age. Change is constant. That makes a lot of people uncomfortable. But it’s time to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable means you’re growing. Being uncomfortable means you’re challenging yourself. And before we get too far, I am not talking about inappropriate discomfort. I will teach you the difference. If you are too afraid of change, to embrace change, I probably will not be the right fit for you as a therapist.

My approach is very direct, using a combination of Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and/or Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
A winning basketball team needs a winning coach to motivate, push, and elevate their squad. A Psychotherapist is equal to a coach; helping clients navigate obstacles and move through mental or physical barriers to succeed in life. Hi, my name is Honey Golian, and I am a Psychotherapist. I got my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. My job as a Psychotherapist is to listen with empathy, create a safe environment, and build trust with my clients.

I often incorporate accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy, dialectical behavioral therapy ( DBT ), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mind-body connections to address the complexities of each individual and their struggles.
How do you feel about seeking help, especially for your mental and emotional health? Do you think it’s a sign of weakness? As a psychologist, I see it as a sign of strength, courage, self-awareness and maturity. I work with my clients to identify what they’re needing in order for them to improve their lives. I help people find the ways to change and experience personal growth and healing. I support my clients as they discover new aspects of themselves, which can be a challenging but rewarding process.

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, and trauma? Do you experience difficulties managing family and relationship issues? I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. The subconscious mind controls most of our reality and choices, so building awareness and active presence can improve the quality of daily living and assist in not only surviving but thriving through life. As an intuitive & holistic therapist, I will assist you in strengthening your inner psyche and developing new tools to manage negative feelings and thoughts.

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 West Park, Irvine or for a West Park, Irvine 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 West Park, Irvine and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
