My practice was founded to provide our clients with therapies are effective and efficient, which can help reduce the time spent in therapy such as EMDR and DBT.
Does life seem a bit overwhelming? Does your mind keep racing? Do you feel down? Do you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? If you or your loved one have answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone, we can help! It is normal to have obstacles occur as we travel through life, but when it starts to interfere with our daily living we may experience frustration, sadness, confusion, and uneasiness. Getting help with these issues may lead to a more fulfilling life for you. Together, you and I will work together to meet your individual goals.

I'm Gottman trained (couples) & competent in CBT, IPT, DBT, Meaning-making, Suicide Bereavement, Trauma-informed, Grief/Loss.
Stress is inevitable, it's how we respond to it that matters. While stress can be a catalyst for spiritual, physical and emotional growth, it can also impact our short and long-term well-being. During stressful times, it's important to recognize emotional and physical changes. However, if we avoid or neglect our internal experiences because of the fear of pain, we essentially shut ourselves off from any potential growth our challenges offer. My goal is to support you through challenging times, allowing you to open fully to the present moment by incorporating compassion-oriented and mindfulness-based strategies.

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