I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavior Therapy, (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), and solution-focused approaches.
Sometimes life can become pretty overwhelming. Everyone at some point needs a helping hand in making sense of stressful events, finding ways to cope, and taking steps toward becoming the person he or she wants to be. When working with my clients, my goal is to be that helping hand. I tailor my approach to clients' strengths and needs, with the focus of assisting individuals in reaching their goals and becoming the best versions of themselves. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, and families struggling with PTSD, depression, anxiety, life changes, grief, emotion regulation, or stress management.

So many of us are walking around with unhealed wounds. Healing is a process that takes time, support, encouragement, courage, and validation. Therapy can be an integral part of the healing process for many. I utilize therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems Theory, and Attachment Theory to help clients navigate the healing process. We dive deeply into unconscious processes and work on bringing them into consciousness. We work on quieting the inner critic and living in true authenticity through vulnerability and courage.

Often times life can get tough. It can affect you, your marriage/relationship, your family, your children, your ability to parent, your self-worth, and more than anything, your ability to overcome any obstacles you are facing. I believe within each of us we have the strength to overcome the impossible. Out of pain comes something stronger, better, and the ability to thrive. I believe you already have the answers you seek and you contain the ability to change the worst circumstances. Sometimes our paths are hidden by everything weighing us down, which can make us feel overwhelmed. This can prevent us from seeing a way out...

My specialty is working with a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques.
Do you run away from things you are afraid of or shut down? I can help you gain confidence and courage. Ruminating on what causes anxiety doesn't help, it just makes it worse. Feeling like there is no hope is immobilizing and it tears down your ability to feel good about what is happening in life. Disturbing events or traumas can be so devastating that it makes one feel like there is constant danger ahead or like there must be something wrong with them for allowing such things to happen. Let me help you feel less depressed, anxious, obsessed, or afraid and give you the boost that you need to create the life you want.

My training includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (or how our thoughts and beliefs affect our feelings and behaviors), Psychodynamic Therapy (an approach that helps with inner conflict, feelings of being different, and self-esteem), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (which helps us cope with out of control feelings and behaviors).
Almost all of us struggle, from time to time, with worry, unhappiness, self-hate, despair and anger. With too many negative feelings, our interpersonal lives can become conflicted and dysfunctional. We may lose our friends, job, or even our life partner, Further, we may turn to any number of drugs or behaviors to try to manage our pain. Psychotherapy helps us to understand, cope with, and even change our painful feelings and behaviors. The goal is to enjoy and engage in life more fully, and move towards the goals that will give our lives meaning and value.

Dialectical Behavior (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 Alton or for an Alton 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 Alton and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
