Among other therapeutic modalities, I incorporate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which was designed to give people practical ways to manage intense emotions, negotiate difficult relationships, and stop addictive behaviors.
We all want to find some way to love ourselves and to engage in meaningful, healthy relationships. These desires can be elusive when we have histories of trauma, neglect, and abuse. Many of my clients have trauma histories in childhood and qualify for diagnoses that originate in trauma, including PTSD, Complex PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, and/or Dissociative Disorders. Trauma that comes from ongoing abuse in childhood impacts many aspects of life, including the way you see yourself, your ability to trust others, and even your ability to move forward toward your goals.

For long-term outcomes, I use DBT, CBT, innovative treatments focusing on the mind and body connection, and interventions using elements of expressive arts therapy.
I want to see the world as you see it, witness what you have done to survive, and help you remove the obstacles blocking your path toward growth and freedom. Who you are and how you behave are shaped by your experiences, thoughts, and beliefs. Although we can have gratitude for what has helped you survive, it may no longer serve you. I am a growth-focused and compassionate professional with hands-on experience in delivering practical and emotional support to a wide range of clients. I use an integrative approach to treat the whole person instead of symptoms attributed to multiple diagnoses.

My ideal client is someone who is committed to working toward real and lasting change. Someone willing to learn that change does not just come from a behavioral switch. Real growth happens when a person's heart engages in the process and understands, internally, first. Each person needs to participate in their counseling; not just be an observer/consumer. I am committed to make each session a safe environment to learn the how and why of engaging in counseling; what it will require to achieve this; and then walk alongside with each client to make these empowering transformations.

I work very well with clients who struggle with managing stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem or relationship issues. Common examples of issues that these clients face are trouble setting boundaries, feeling overwhelmed, relationship issues, lack of self-esteem or difficulty managing their emotions. These clients are hoping to increase their coping skills in these areas and want resources to assist in navigating their symptoms or need a safe and nonjudgmental space to talk things through. Evaluating all aspects of life through a collaborative relationship, we can work to decide how my client can live a thriving, healthy life.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed, not knowing how to feel better? If you're someone who has had a life-changing experience it can seem like the floor is crumbling beneath your feet. You feel like everything is uncertain and as if everyone would judge you if they knew how you really felt or what was going on. You feel alone, frustrated, and confused - stuck and wishing you knew how to move forward.

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 Barrington or for a Barrington 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 Barrington and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
