If you are experiencing any difficulties in life, one of the bravest things that you can do is seek help. I am here to help you accomplish your goals to live a happy, healthy, and successful life! Caring for others was introduced early in my life as I witnessed my family support foster youth in their homes, provide mental health services, and develop a nonprofit organization to support underserved populations - in honor of my late grandmother. I assist individuals in need of healing from depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, grief, and other mood disorders.

*TELETHERAPY ONLY* I believe people continue to grow and foster their self-concept over time. Sudden life changes, chronic stress, and ongoing personal difficulties are challenging and affect how we adjust to life transitions. I see therapy as a process aiming to empower individuals to embrace their true self, foster self-awareness and personal growth. I aim to create a trusting environment for individuals and couples to explore recurrent patterns in relationships and cope with distressing emotions. I work with trauma survivors, first responders, law enforcement, and military families. I also specialize in couples counseling.

Sometimes our lives can look fine "on paper" but it still feels like something is missing. Not knowing what that something is can be stressful, and even knowing exactly what that something is can be frustrating when knowing isn't enough. Whether you're struggling with your relationship, work, family, self-esteem, or sense of meaning and purpose, that struggle becomes heavier by trying to manage it all on your own. The truth is that nobody does life on their own, so you shouldn’t feel like you have to.

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 Alexandria or for an Alexandria 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 Alexandria and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
