"I began my career as a marriage family therapist and certified mediator twenty-four years ago. Over the years, my practice has grown and evolved after sitting with hundreds of people over the years. I've led hundreds of groups, workshops, and classes. I saw the challenges of relationships, raising a family, financial success, and being happy. Once I was walking my own path, the struggles that I had seen as a child became mine. Managing my time and not mimicking my workaholic family upbringing led me to creating new structures and habits that would support me and my success."

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Francisco are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in San Francisco you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in San Francisco and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in San Francisco or family therapy in San Francisco.
