I am not currently able to accept new clients. I find that successful psychotherapy begins by helping you to clearly envision what you want for yourself. In particular, how do you want your life to be? I will help you clarify your hopes for yourself through ongoing collaboration. From there, we will think through strategies and work through barriers as you seek to achieve your vision of how you want to feel, to relate to others, to work, to study or learn. Each person is entirely unique, and thus, my approach to help you live the life you want to live will be adapted to your unique self.

It is not uncommon to realize we are living lives we never planned on. We may be in an active crisis, or a life transition, or we may realize that we are stuck, or that things are just not working. Often, present-day challenges can be traced back to old patterns of relating, perceiving, understanding, and behaving. I help my clients identify and understand old patterns, and then develop greater flexibility in how they relate and respond. I work with them to adopt new practices which will allow them to move away from impasses and towards lives that are more fulfilling, productive and connected.

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 Wellesley or for a Wellesley 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 Wellesley 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 Wellesley are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Wellesley. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Wellesley

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