I am DBT and EMDR trained (evidence based treatments) and often utilize these modalities within a client-centered approach.
The journey to emotional healing can seem daunting when facing it alone and reaching out for help can be intimidating. I believe that everyone is resilient and strong, but life's challenges can create feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that make even the strongest people feel defeated. I would love to help you in the process of finding your own hope and strength.

I use modalities such as DBT and EMDR while placing an emphasis on the creation of a safe, affirming therapeutic relationship as a place to begin, exploration, healing and change.
I am a social worker and psychotherapist who draws upon clinical training that has been influenced by systems theory, humanistic values, and lived experience to collaborate with clients on their journey through the therapy process. I work from a non pathologizing stance that invites exploration of ways that early experiences and systems of oppression impact a client’s relationship with self and others while understanding the importance of remaining grounded in mindful awareness of the present moment. I seek to uplift and hold hope for those I work with and believe strongly in the ability of all people to grow and heal.

I often use DBT , EMDR and Trauma Focused CBT to address the unique set of circumstances, needs and strengths that each person brings to therapy.
Childhood and adolescence can present a unique set of challenges for many young people. Having worked in several settings, including inpatient hospitalization and residential treatment, as well as private and public schools, I have many years of experience in helping children and teens to find their voice, overcome obstacles and flourish into healthy, strong adults. I believe that a warm, compassionate, nonjudgmental relationship combined with evidenced based practices can provide a strong foundation for change and healing.

I teach strategies from a variety of modalities, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Compassion-Focused Therapy, to help people create healthier, happier lives.
I enjoy working with individuals who are hoping, through therapy, to live happier, healthier, fuller lives. Many people don't realize that they have the power to create much better lives for themselves simply by changing the way in which they talk to themselves on a daily (or even a minute-by-minute) basis. I enjoy working with people who are struggling with relationships, sexual identity, self-harming coping strategies, and difficulties relating to food, alcohol, and other substances. From the beginning, the focus is on building a safe, trusting relationship that makes it easy to laugh and share freely.

I have experience treating a range of presenting concerns including trauma and stress-related difficulties (e.g., PTSD, nightmares, moral injury), insomnia, depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, emotion dysregulation, and interpersonal problems.

As both a former client and a current practitioner in mental health, I understand how difficult it can be to move forward when you feel stuck and struggling against the quicksand of depression and anxiety. I primarily utilize ACT, CBT, and DBT to help my clients, integrating these evidence-based practices based on the unique needs of each individual. I firmly believe that each client is the expert on their own life and I am here to help them become a more confident expert. As a result, I work best with clients who desire want to be active participants in their therapy in order to be more successful in their lives outside of therapy.

There are times in life when our experiences can leave us feeling isolated, anxious, unloved, and questioning whether we are “good enough”. We may struggle to trust others or the world around us; doubting, hating, hurting or numbing ourselves in an attempt to alleviate pain. As a therapist , my goal is to help each of my clients feel as comfortable and safe as possible, in a trusting, and supportive environment.

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