About

*** CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS ****. I am one of the few therapists in Northern NJ board certified in DBT. My DBT-LBC(tm) certification was granted by the Linehan Board of Certification. I have been practicing DBT for over a decade and run an adherent group practice specializing in DBT for teens and adults. Other specialties include Cognitive Behavioral treatment of depression and anxiety, and DBT-Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE) and EMDR for trauma.
We offer an adherent DBT program with all four modes of DBT: 1) Individual Therapy. In individual therapy, we identify patterns that lead to problem behaviors, and craft solutions for the client using the DBT Skills that they are learning in group therapy.
2) Group Skills Training. Adolescent groups are follow the Dr.s Miller and Rathus DBT Model. Adult multi-family groups are follow Dr. Linehan's (2015) skills training manual. 3) Skills coaching phone calls are provided free of charge. 4) Weekly consultation team to improve therapist skills and the program.
