Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.

One of the greatest privileges as a therapist is the ability to join with my clients during times when they feel alone, to help them to see a spark of light during times of darkness and to allow them to realize their strength during times of weakness. How we perceive our struggles and how we choose to move forward and face them can make all the difference. For nearly 10 years, I have been honored to support individuals, couples and families as they take the brave step of embarking on the path toward healing.

Sometimes even the smartest and most capable women I know feel stuck. It could be moving beyond an issue in a relationship, anxiety, perfectionism or it could be an eating disorder or traumatic memory. You may feel like you are underperforming in life and relationships or just completely overwhelmed with everything going on. When we do not have the social support we need or just not sure how to use our social support, it can be helpful to talk to a professional and get objective feedback. To be asked thought provoking questions. To get ideas with how to move forward and start thriving in life!

Everyone one of us has difficult moments in our lives that evoke feelings we do not enjoy. Sadness can feel like it will never end. Anger is felt in our head, but we may feel judged by others for expressing it. If only there was a simple button we could press that would make us feel happiness. You understand better than anyone else that there is no magic button to turn off anxiety, depression, unwanted addictions, or anything else that brings discomfort in your life.

We often face challenges because we retain habitual patterns of relating to people and reacting to events. Our early experiences set expectations that can limit our abilities to respond to stressful events and to notice new opportunities. With counseling, we can revise unhelpful patterns and even repair old wounds they mask and reflect. Then we can feel freer to make healthier choices for ourselves and recover more easily from losses and setbacks we experience. I work with adults and teens (sexual/gender and racial/ethnic minorities, students, social justice activists). Anti-oppression education and training inform my work.

There are many types of trauma, and trauma is subjective. Trauma can happen to your body, mind, and spirit. It distorts our identity, causes us to doubt our purpose, and influences our sense of meaning. We feel unsafe, alone, unknown, and scared. Some of the most challenging types of trauma to overcome are pre-verbal or early childhood abuse/neglect and relational or attachment trauma. EMDR is a protocol allowing someone to reprocess trauma quickly and with minimal risk of retraumatization. Focus is given to maintaining psychological safety at all times, and you are in complete control of the process.

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 Houston or for a Houston 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 Houston 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 Houston are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Houston

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