Are you a woman who struggles with self-doubt and feeling like you are “not enough”? Do you feel like you have to be something or someone other than who you really are to survive or fit in? Have you forgotten what it is you truly want and need to live a fulfilling and meaningful life? Constantly trying to improve ourselves and living from others expectations gets in the way of our innate inner knowing and our ability to be loving and accepting of our “perfectly imperfect” selves. I have come to believe that change occurs when instead of continual self-improvement, we learn to discover and embrace our own true experience with compassion and accept ourselves for who we already are.

Problematic behaviors evolve as a way to cope with a situation or attempt to solve a problem. While these behaviors might provide temporary relief, they often are not effective in the long-term. DBT skills training is a weekly group, run like a class, which teaches new coping skills across four main topics: Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance.. Participants are assigned weekly homework in which they practice the skills taught during the weekly lesson.

Are you seeking honest and useful feedback? Are you stuck in perspectives or behaviors that are causing problems? Is a suspected blind spot causing conflict with those you care about? My counseling practice is influenced by three core beliefs. (1) A caring and supportive relationship is an excellent predictor of therapeutic success. (2) Psychological and emotional stress often indicates an imbalance in thinking or perception. (3) Regaining balance will often restore integrity to our lives and relationships. Our task as therapist and client is to explore areas of imbalance and take the necessary steps to find your balance.

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