I use a combination of therapeutic skill sets, such as Narrative therapy and DBT to help identify unpreferred patterns, and highlight the strengths within you to help effectively manifest the goals that matter most to you.
Searching for a space where you can just be you? Sometimes life can present challenges that make it hard for us to simply exist as who we are. As your therapist, I will provide a space that is both comforting and non-judgemental. Here we can work together to help you explore unique aspects of yourself that can help you address hardship, live as the fullest version of yourself and a life that feels satisfying for you. My approach to therapy is client-centered, compassionate, collaborative, curious and rooted in the idea that you have the capacity to re-story and improve the reality of your life.

I am influenced by attachment concepts from Emotionally Focused Therapy, EFT, and practical life skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, DBT .
I care...Let me help. We will create a safe, non-judgmental space from which to begin the process of healing. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families who have challenges in substance abuse, anxiety, depression, borderline personality issues and relationship problems. I also enjoy working with the LGBT community, specifically with Transgender people and their families. My rich life experience (fancy language for I'm older) allows me to truly align with partners and families that have members who are transgender and to be an ally with transgender individuals as they transition.

My therapeutic approach tends to be eclectic, pulling from various theoretical frameworks including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Attachment-Based Therapy.
Sharing our inner experiences with someone can often feel frightening, which is exactly why I place such an importance on connection and acceptance in the therapeutic process. I aim to create a safe environment that will invite my clients to delve deeper into their personal narrative, as I truly believe we are not built to process emotions alone. As humans, we all have a propensity to grow and become our true selves, unfortunately we aren’t always gifted with the circumstances to allow it. I am passionate about creating a space for not only self-discovery and self acceptance, but to allow clients to feel seen, heard, and valued.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, ( DBT ), cognitive/ behavioral, focus on mindfulness/present awareness.
Welcome, if you have found yourself here, it means you are thinking about making some changes in your life. Making the decision to begin a journey of self discovery can be scary to say the least. May I share some of my thoughts with you. I believe in the, "Law of Correspondence", which states that what is going on in our outer world is nothing more than a reflection of what is going on in our inner world. As within, so without, as above, so below. It would be my honor, and privilege to help you discover your best self.

I've studied and have been trained in various evidence based practices such as Gottman Method, Mindfulness, CBT-TF, DBT , EMDR, and IFS.
We all can feel a little overwhelmed when dealing with life's hurdles. At times, having someone that you can talk things over with confidentially- promotes safe self-reflection, psychoeducation on patterns, strategies to improve, and growth mindset to overcome any obstacle. Life can feel amplified when we harness our authentic values, learn emotional regulation & communication skills that allow us to remain aligned with our true self. This is especially true for relationship and family building goals. I'm passionate about helping you become the true aligned version of yourself!

I tend to favor drama therapy (the use of creative/performance art forms in sessions), CBT, TF-CBT, Attachment, Narrative, DBT , Somatic, and Psychodynamic models.
I tend to think of therapy as tupperware, it’s the container where we can unload what is weighing us down. Our personal backgrounds; ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, (dis)abilities, to name a few, are integral to who we are. These aspects can have a deep impact on the way we view, think of, the world and experience mental health. This is why a multicultural approach lays the foundation for my work with clients. Navigating healing while at the same time still existing within systemic oppression, marginalization, and erasure/assimilation is not easy. This is a safe container to do so.

My approach to each session is to provide a safe space for clients to be at ease in the present and gain clarity while exploring, challenging and healing core wounds, values and behaviors.

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 North Hills, San Diego or for a North Hills, San Diego 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 North Hills, San Diego and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
