Hi, I'm Katie! I help women and girls thrive in their relationships while living boldly and authentically. So often we can feel stuck, especially in relationships - friendships, romantic relationships, or with family members. Maybe you are exhausted from giving so much of yourself to avoid conflict, or you are so focused on what other people think about you that you neglect yourself. Deep down, you don't believe your feelings and needs matter as much as other peoples'. Maybe you are a mother who sees her daughter struggling with anxiety and low self-worth. You want to see her thriving, but you don't know how to get her there.

Struggling with depression or anxiety? Breaking patterns is hard, but you know you want change and meaningful redirection. Painful memories and recurrent conflict can strain relationships. Work stress gets in the way of being present and feeling fulfilled. People often work with me to get things moving when they feel blocked or stuck, to develop calm where uncertainty has them off balance. Our work will reveal insight to restore stability, address trauma, and change outlook towards realizing an improved sense of self. Together we can work to identify and harness strength, addressing challenges with new clarity and inspiration.

Relationships are hard. But, why? Because your brain wants you and your partner to protect yourselves in ways that get in the way of feeling connected, loved, and passionate. Self-protection is always running in the background and you need to know how to manage it and make choices that are better for your relationship. That's normal. Thankfully, things can change. I'm an experienced, safe therapist who knows how to guide you toward new patterns of relating or recover from disappointment, affairs, fear, and distance.

They may struggle with disordered eating and body image issues or feel disconnected and adrift in life. In therapy, clients begin to see themselves and others with more clarity and compassion.

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

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