"Hi, I’m Veronica, and my passion and dedication to this work lies in the idea that asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Everyone will experience some frictions or challenges at some point in their life and need support. I feel called to be an empathic guide to people during such times. I work somatically and relationally, meaning I hold that the mind and body are intrinsically connected. I welcome clients to tell their stories, histories, and important aspects of their life. I also invite them to become aware of how they feel as they are sharing with me by tuning into their bodies."

"Seeking professional help for yourself, your child or your family takes courage. Not only are we taught that we shouldn't need help or tell strangers our business, but it’s hard to imagine what we’ll be like if we change our old habits. Many of the adults who have made progress working with me have experienced trauma, the impacts of oppressive social biases, or both. They have adapted and survived, but they are not thriving. They may feel stuck, or they feel the need to hide or silence parts of themselves to succeed in relationships. Younger clients may have similar issues along with defiance, withdrawal or other troubling behavior."

"I believe that the therapy process is a practice of paying attention to what is actually happening - it sounds simple, but this is actually a deeply profound and challenging stance to maintain towards life. The work we do in therapy involves bringing elements of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, how we relate to ourselves and to others, and how we move through the world, from the darkness of the unconscious into the light of consciousness where we can take a look at them. We do not have to struggle and toil in order to implement change in our lives."

Dialectical (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 South Of Market, San Francisco or for a South Of Market, San Francisco DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy.
