As a thirty year veteran in Clinical Social Work, I worked for many years at the premier Harvard teaching hospital for Psychiatry in Boston.. I am an eclectic therapist. My clinical work is based upon a psychodynamic foundation to which I have integrated Cognitive and/or Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness and Relaxation Training, Family Systems Models and Coaching. In my initial assessment and subsequent work with each individual, I strive to listen as closely as possible to the feeling experience of the client and help each person develop an understanding and perspective of their life experience.

In general, I integrate psychodynamic and somatic approaches with CBT, DBT and Mindfulness in a flexible, focused, results-oriented process.
I find that successful psychotherapy usually begins by helping you to clearly envision what you want for yourself. In particular, how do you want your life to be? I help you think through your hopes for your self and identify factors that may interfere with your aspirations for you. From there, we will think through strategies and work through barriers as you seek to achieve your vision of how you want to feel, to relate to others, to work, to study or learn. Each person is entirely unique, and thus, my approach to help you live the life you want to live will be adapted to your unique self.

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.

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 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 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.
