"You want things in your life to change, and you want them to change fast. I approach therapy from a practical perspective: part of our work together will be to help you determine what changes you want to make, and get started with some practical actions (yes, homework!). You can expect to see results fairly quickly, usually after 2 or 3 sessions. As we work together over 8-10 sessions, more deep-seated patterns may emerge, and you can decide to what extent you want to do this deeper change work."

"In working with individuals and couples I establish a relaxed space to see clearly. We collaborate on your objectives and overcome what stands between you and what you want. We look at what you have learned and what that learning means to you. It also means searching for your own meaning in a comfortable environment where you feel safe exploring your life. While I enjoy helping in all circumstances I have a special interest in overcoming trauma, men finding rewarding expression of their nature, and questions of meaning. "

I also do long-term insight-oriented work; identifying patterns of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors which reflect unconscious conflict and create barriers in relationships with oneself and others. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often what prompt people to enter therapy. Some people want to learn tools and behaviors to alleviate symptomology; while others continue with therapy, after symptom reduction, and explore internal themes from their family-of-origin and how they are impacting their relationships today.

"It's difficult to admit we are not where we want to be in our lives. It is painful when we are overwhelmed by sadness, anger or worry. Attending counseling is an act of self-love and courage. You know yourself, and where you long to go. We work together to help you get there. Whether your distress is acute or subtle, managed or uncontrolled, it will lead to a lack of mental, physical and spiritual health. Unresolved anger, trauma, neglect, hurt, and family dysfunction will keep you stuck and block you from realizing your full potential."

"Occasionally, people struggle with adverse circumstances, relational difficulties, and issues of self-concept and purpose that leave them feeling overburdened, inadequate, or simply not themselves. In efforts to feel better, we get stuck in extreme and irrational thought patterns, act impulsively/compulsively out of fear and anger, and engage in self-destructive behaviors. At heart, each of us yearns for comfort over pain, autonomy to live our truth, and love and acceptance as we are. Fortunately, counseling can mitigate suffering by addressing core issues, helping people experience life with greater ease and contentment. "

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 West Slope, Portland or for a West Slope, Portland DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy.
