From there, I incorporate approaches such as EMDR, DBT , IFS, and Brainspotting to help you in learning skills and resources to effectively take action and create the life you envision.
My ideal client is anyone who is contemplating a change in their lives, big or small. This may include specific, actionable areas such as changing a certain behavior or more broad, general changes such as how to better improve your mental well-being or develop healthier relationships. I believe that everyone is capable of change and, many times, already possess everything they need - they just don't know how to access it. I work with clients to develop an individualized change plan to turn big decisions into easier action steps. I view my role in this process as a "change consultant and coach" to help people live their dreams.

Reaching out in times of need is not always easy- this last year alone has led many of us through uncharted territories. Sometimes we are left in a place where it can be difficult to ask for what we need, especially if we aren’t sure what that may be. I can offer help by providing a safe and non-judgmental space to explore your needs. You are the expert on you. My role is to provide an outside perspective to help channel clearer insight into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Working together in this manner will allow you to build on the strengths and resiliency that are already within you.

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