If you’re reading this, that probably means that you are in a place where you have tried a lot of things to feel better, or help your loved one feel better and just don’t know what else to do. I would love to help support you on this journey. Therapy is a collaboration between two individuals (therapist and client) and when successful, truly amazing things can occur within this space. I use the relationship between my clients and I to help them build insight and awareness into the way they show up in the world.

Many challenges we experience in daily life relate to conflict between parts of ourself. Each part reflects our body’s own loving attempts to care for us in the best ways it knows. When we shift one part of this feedback loop, the whole system rearranges. This is what makes transformation possible. My approach to therapy is client-centered and eclectic. I start with creating a non-judgmental, inclusive space for you to come as you are. From here, therapy can include talk therapy, body awareness, mindfulness practices, behavior coaching, evidence-based therapies, trauma modalities, and systems approaches as we reach for your goals.

If you’re reading this page, my guess is that you’ve finally had enough, and finally feel ready to reach out for help. How you feel about yourself doesn’t align with how you’d like to feel, and your relationships aren’t turning out the way you hoped they would. You worry so much that you worry about worrying, and you get lost in made-up scenarios of "what if..." Maybe you aren’t sure how to ask for what you want, and declare what you need. Maybe you grew up in a home where your family didn't take good care of you, or someone you trusted betrayed you. Past pains still hurt, and you aren’t sure how to heal. You're in the right place!

I'm on your side. My clients gain crucial insights, learn essential coping skills and dramatically improve their relationships, outlook, and prospects for the future.

Inherent in the human condition is the potential for suffering. At times, we may find that our pain, worries, and traumas have overcome our capacity to cope. When our capacities for coping become overwhelmed, we struggle to connect to others, to fulfill our daily obligations, and we may carry haunting feelings of shame and negative thoughts about ourselves, the world, and the future. Also inherent in the human condition is the tremendous capacity for resilience, growth, and healing. I believe that each of us holds within us a unique key to healing. Therapy is the process of compassionately clearing the cobwebs to find that key.

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 Downtown, Santa Barbara or for a Downtown, Santa Barbara DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy.
