"I believe that our relationship is a partnership and that my role is to get a better understanding of how you approach life and how that approach either helps or hinders what you want. It is my experience in working with clients that all behaviors, thoughts and feelings are rational given past experience. Challenges in relationships and well-being are often developed when previously effective behaviors are no longer helpful in a new environment or under a new set of experiences. "

"Please note that all sessions are via tele-medicine. I believe that clients seeking counseling services desire tools for living a better life, and I strive to provide those tools. I do not push change on clients, but rather helps them articulate how they want their lives to be, and then collaboratively set out to put the foundation in place to create that life. I feel that clients gain the most from the counseling experience when they feel supported, encouraged, and understood by their therapist. This process works best in a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space, which I provide."

"**PLEASE NOTE: Not currently accepting new clients.** I help individual adults to feel and function better and find far more effective ways to address life's difficulties. I also help couples to restore intimacy (or to part amicably, if need be) by teaching effective conflict resolution skills. The fact is, most people feel ambivalent about starting therapy or couples counseling. By now, you might feel fairly uncomfortable and frustrated, realizing that everyone's friendly advice, the self-help books and web articles, and all of your existing coping mechanisms have not worked for you. You want relief and results now."

"I view therapy as an invitation to bring awareness to the here and now. For many of us, we press forward, through, and over difficult feelings when they arise in our daily lives. Often they show up as unwanted thoughts or images. They not only fill us with dread, but we will go to great lengths to avoid them. On the other hand, what if moving toward our feelings actually reduces the influence they have over us, allowing us to attend to the very things we value, thereby creating meaning and purpose 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 Washington or for a Washington 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 Washington 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 Washington are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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