"How do we gauge that we are loved by the people around us and that we feel heard? Is it natural to be standing in a room filled with familiar faces and still feel deprived of meaningful connections? As human beings we thrive on social interactions, yet some of our closest relationships can often feel depleting. Whether it is due to a lack of acceptance or a challenge with our communication patterns and sense of self; which can be especially daunting for those facing a cultural dissonance with their environment. Pursuing therapy, can be that first reparative step you take— towards recreating meaning and your own narrative. "

"My approach to therapy involves creating a safe space where your concerns and difficulties are met with empathy and freedom from judgment. I use warmth and humor to help facilitate one's self-expression and I believe that therapy should provide an environment in which people feel free and secure to explore the underlying meanings of behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. My role is to guide the therapeutic exploration in order to cultivate empowering insights that reconnect a person to their own inner authority. Therapy can re-gift the innate ability to make new choices, find balance, and live a whole and meaningful life."

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 Chicago or for a 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. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Chicago 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 Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues.
