"Human sexuality is an endless source of self-knowledge through which we tap into our subconsciousness. In most people it is suppressed and hidden from our conscious minds due to the rigid cultural and religious belief systems along with our personal beliefs. Learning about ourselves through our sexual expressions will help some of us obtain wisdom and knowledge about who we are. Most of non-sexual issues stem from unhealthy self-perceptions, specifically from denying our own sexuality and freedom to express ourselves sexually. Ability to fully realize ourselves comes from expanding our consciousness through exploring our sexuality and sensuality."

"Are you laying awake at night worrying about how to get your life on track, wondering if you are suffering from a "failure to launch"? Are you feeling depressed by vague feelings of emptiness and boredom that even your personal and professional relationships fail to relieve? Do you feel isolated and awkwardly alone even in the midst of your social interactions? Do you long for deeper self-understanding and for loving relationships that support well-being and purpose in life?"

"I believe that a successful therapeutic relationship is based on careful listening and honest feedback. I help clients cultivate authentic relationships in their lives; both with themselves and others. I work collaboratively with clients to identify and achieve their goals by meeting them where they are in the present moment. When you experience being criticized, or feel unimportant, misunderstood, unappreciated or unloved, the fight or flight response is activated, and you instinctually react to protect yourself. "

"As a relationship therapist, I help couples and individuals who struggle to connect in their relationships. The raw material I work with are the emotional dynamics that play out in a relationship, as well as the internal emotional experience that each individual goes through moment by moment. I help people develop their emotional self-awareness and their awareness of the emotional states of others. In my experience, it is when you can develop curiosity about your emotional reactions and your partner's reactions, slowing down the negative cycle of reactivity and moving beyond it, that a new kind of relationship can emerge.

Towards the end of graduate school, I transitioned into specializing in neuropsychology (study of brain-behavior relationships) and completed a two year residency in neuropsychology. While my specialization has changed over the years, much of my training has been with Veterans and through telehealth. My practice mainly involves delivering therapy through telehealth (video) as a way to increase patients' access to care and decrease the burden associated with seeking help, but I can also provide in-person visits upon request.

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 San Francisco or for a 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. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in San Francisco and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
