The background of my business card shows a water droplet causing ripples in a pond. I selected this photo to represent my idea of how we make changes in our lives; sometimes the tiniest action sets off tremendous improvements in how we live our lives. Living more fully, happily, healthily always is part of how I look at my own life; people who can share this attitude usually are those with whom I see the best outcomes from therapy. If you often ask yourself "What might I learn from this situation", you and I likely will be a good team.

I truly enjoy engaging with clients in the messiness of marriage, divorce, trauma, social discomfort, job worries, losses/grief, difficulty making a big decision. I won't have THE answer to your problem, but I do expect we can work together to identify your strengths and create your personal solutions.

Darrelyn M Dorais's Groups

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

New group will begin January 2017. DBT Group is designed for women 18 and older who have met with one of the two group leaders prior to attending a group. All participants also are in individual psychotherapy with a local therapist of their choice. In our weekly meetings the co-therapists provide educational materials and practice exercises for members to try out during the week. New members are welcome to join at the beginning of one of four learning modules: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, or Interpersonal Effectiveness.
