I work in a strictly confidential, non-judgmental and supportive setting and I use clinically-proven strategies such as CBT, system-based and Mindfulness-based approaches ( DBT , ACT).
Many professionals suffer from stress, anxiety, worry, or depression. Despite external success there is internal angst often impacting our daily lives and our relationships with colleagues and loved ones. Although materially successful we find ourselves feeling restless, trapped, or burnt out. I can help professionals who at times experience such feelings find their balance and regain their zest for life. After 15 years in corporate America where I saw highly functional colleagues struggle with stress and worry, I decided to become a Marriage and Family Therapist to serve this clientele to whom I could relate.

I primarily practice from a relational psychodynamic orientation, while integrating aspects from other modalities such as DBT , CBT, and ACT based on each client's unique presenting problems.
I believe that some of the ways people developed to cope with difficult experiences in early life no longer adaptively serve them; therefore, I help clients gain insight into those patterns and develop new ways of being in order to make positive changes. I also deeply value the impact that family-of-origin and culture have on identity development, interpersonal relationships, and how one views the world. My dissertation focused on examining the relationship between academic stress and physical health symptoms. I have a specialty in working with adolescents, college-aged students, and young professionals.

I am who work as a part of a DBT team and supervise.
People often feel vulnerable and overwhelmed when starting therapy. My approach to therapy is that therapy is a partnership between the client and the therapist. I believe it is important that we both are working towards the same goal and that you feel comfortable enough to be honest and open to my help. Creating a partnership will help the two of us make progress together and empower you to be aware of your own potential. I provide individual, couples, family and group therapies. All therapies focus on developing skills to make lasting change and to improve self esteem.

I address both concerns and strengths with a straight-forward and action-oriented approach while utilizing evidenced-based treatments, such as CBT, DBT , and ACT to help you better cope with life's stressors.
Life can get tough and overwhelming for anyone. You may find yourself wanting to go at it alone and attempt to "stuff" issues such as anxiety, sadness, feeling withdrawn, or relationship problems. I work with my patients to identify specific, well-researched, and concrete tools that can help combat mental health issues and empower them to react with more control, insight, and balance. We'll work as a team to give you the skills you need to gain deeper insights, manage the inevitable barriers you face, and gain more control over your psychological concerns so you can live a better life.

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 La Jolla or for a La Jolla 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 La Jolla and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
