I am sorry to say I am not currently accepting individual clients. However, I do have openings in my DBT skills group. It meets in person in Needham and is for high school students only. I am a high energy, direct, relational therapist. I work hard to help clients articulate their goals and then take measurable steps towards achieving them. If you are looking for a therapist who is lively and a "straight shooter", I might be a good fit for you. In addition, I work well with motivated individuals, who may be struggling, but are also interested in creating change in their life.

I utilize CBT, DBT and psychodynamic therapy modalities.
I believe that most children and adolescents can benefit from connecting with another adult to help them sort through their struggles, even short-term. Working in schools for the past 18 years has taught me how to work collaboratively with all the people in your child's life to help them to achieve success. I am able to see the "whole child" as a result, and treat accordingly. I have found that child and adolescent therapists are few and far between, and I hope to be a resource to you.

DBT , LQBTQ+, Psych-education and narrative therapy - to name a few.
I use an integrative form of therapy with a focus on connection and specific modalities as necessary. We then move forward developing a safe, therapeutic relationship. As we build upon this relationship the client will begin to recognize and interpret behaviors and patterns. The goal is a deeper development of the therapeutic relationship and build upon the connection. I challenge/encourage the client to make necessary life changes and recognize unproductive patterns that limit them from leading a full, happy life.

In my work, I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy ( DBT ), mindfulness and meditation techniques.
I see psychotherapy as a safe place where healing and change are fostered. I help patients to be able to gain awareness of their own thoughts, feelings and behaviors so they are able to change aspects of themselves or their relationships that are holding them back from having a self-fulfilling life. I believe that everybody has the capacity to change and live a life worth living. The therapeutic relationship is central in helping clients to reach their goals. I provide a warm, caring, nonjudgemental and compassionate environment that helps clients to feel supported while working on their goals.

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