"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."

"Seeking the assistance of a professional counselor is an important decision. Reaching out for help can be difficult, but once the decision has been made, most people, in my experience, find the outcome to be extremely rewarding. Stress, relationship difficulties, and career disenchantment are just a few of the normal issues that anyone may encounter over the course of one's life. Seeking an experienced and skilled counselor to help deal with any of these concerns is a demonstration of personal strength and healthy coping. "

Whether you’re struggling in your relationships, with your mood or anxiety, disordered eating, or anything else - you’re not meant to do it alone. I believe humans are profoundly relational, and I believe that meaningful connections give us the courage to make necessary changes in our lives. I show up as myself in the therapy room, integrating humor, story telling, and metaphors. I’m spirited, imperfect, and whole– hopefully allowing you to be your whole self with me."

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

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