Services include: psychological evaluations, outpatient therapy, intensive outpatient treatment, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Using a client-centered approach in therapy, I help clients develop an understanding of their life circumstances through their own unique and personal context. I work with patients to increase awareness of their thoughts, feelings, and behavioral patterns to create room to choose how to respond to life situations versus responding automatically. This can be empowering as it allows them to create change rather than waiting on other people or situations to change. With this focus on self-awareness and the acquisition of coping skills, I work with patients on navigating concerns with the goal of obtaining a happier and healthier life.

I have specialized training and experience in trauma-focused approaches and Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), and often integrate techniques from those approaches to support the development of skills to cope more effectively with stress, painful emotions and posttraumatic symptoms, and improve relationships and overall functioning.
My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative and integrative, with a primary relational focus. What that means, for me, is that I value the therapeutic relationship as one of the most important vehicles for change. The problems in living that prompt people to seek psychotherapy often take the form of problems in relationships and I believe that, if we can understand and work through those problems in the context of the therapy relationship, that will facilitate understanding and meaningful change in other important relationships and areas of living.

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