Are you experiencing discomfort in your life right now? Maybe you are not feeling as healthy as your could be, or your relationship is struggling. Maybe you are fighting to get out of bed in the morning, and stay out of bed when you get home from work. It feels like you have to "put on a face" for the people around you and can never turn off. That you have a million thoughts at once and they mostly seem to be worst case scenario thinking. Maybe you are struggling as a parent seeing these things in your children.

I meet with people who experience pain associated with trauma events/PTSD, stress/anxiety, and depression, with a speciality in DBT skills and working holistically with "addictive" behaviors, defined as any behavior that one seems unable to stop no matter the efforts or consequences related to the behavior that increases pain and unwanted emotions.
​As a Licensed and Board-Certified counselor, and, more aptly, as a human Being, I understand pain in life. I also know that we humans have an amazing capacity to tolerate and be at ease in the tensions in life, no matter what arises, by un-learning the habits that get in the way. Utilizing evidenced-based practices with timeless principles of mind/body/spirit, I support individuals and couples with a warm-hearted Presence into the extraordinary process of embracing and responding to life from the Wisdom within us all.

My training includes but is not limited to therapeutic modalities of CBT (and CBT for Psychosis), DBT , Mindfulness, Psychodynamic.
Asking for help can be a monumental decision that requires a lot of courage. Finding the right therapist can be an equally difficult task. A therapeutic relationship needs to feel safe and collaborative, as it can serve as a foundation for healing. My goal is to assist you in accessing your internal strengths, exploring obstacles and working to overcome your challenges. Understanding what style or type of therapy you need can feel confusing. I will work with you to create a plan for treatment that is aligned with your needs and personality.

I am a certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and also have training in other modalities (including DBT ) that can help you find new ways to cope with even the toughest hurdles in life.
Are you feeling more anxious or depressed lately? Are the current events in your life making it difficult to navigate life? Or are you just feeling like you need to process trauma from your past? If this is the case for you, it might be time to consider therapy. Healing and recovery can sometimes be challenging and can feel impossible, but with the right therapist, recovery and healing is possible. Give yourself the opportunity to reflect, challenge yourself, and heal whatever may be standing in your way of reaching your goals.

Family life is both rewarding and challenging. Raising children is an important job and it can feel overwhelming at times. No two people parent the same way and how to blend two different life patterns and meet the needs of an individual child, while rewarding, can also feel frustrating. Having tools to navigate these challenges can help you feel confident and deepen your self-awareness. Working as a team with you and your child we will build on strengths and develop strategies for solving issues.

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