Announcement icon I am only conducting Teletherapy.
Do you struggle with emotions that are difficult to manage? Are you engaging in behaviors that are problematic and interfering with your quality of life? I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a treatment that helps people learn healthy ways of regulating emotions, behaviors and thoughts. I will work with you in learning how to effectively make changes, solve problems and learn to accept yourself so that you may enhance your capacity to experience joy in your life.
DBT is an evidence based practice that was developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. The treatment blends Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Zen practice and dialectical philosophy. This treatment helps us balance acceptance in the moment with the need and desire for change. For more information go to www.behavioraltech.org.
I am only providing Teletherapy. Individual skills training sessions are available as well given you have a primary therapist. Gottman method, marathon couples therapy provided as well. All on a case by case basis.
