"I know that starting this process can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Using warmth, empathy, direct feedback and skill building I can help you more fully understand yourself and your relationships and therefore feel empowered to start living the life you want to live. While it is important to minimize daily struggles that get in the way of being fully present in your life and relationships, I firmly believe that healing comes from exploring how our past experiences have affected the ways in which we interpret and interact with our world in the present."

Many people struggling emotionally share the common belief that their obstacles need to be dealt with alone. Dr. and author Brené Brown wrote, "We don't have to do it all alone.

Lots of folks I work with struggle to pinpoint the “stuck” -- they simply know that the status quo is definitely not an option. Or if you’ve been watching your loved one get stuck and become someone you don’t recognize, consumed with negative thoughts, worries, behaviors, you may be experiencing fear and isolation. If either is true for you, you need to understand two things -- a.) this is not unusual (at all), and b.) there are effective treatments that work (and don’t take forever to do so). "

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 Near Eastside, Chicago or for a Near Eastside, Chicago DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy.
