I practice client-centered therapy for couples, families and individuals using DBT ( Dialectical Behavior Therapy) skills training & coaching.
Life can be challenging, and often we can find ourselves at a point where we wonder how to go on. We get stuck, feel overwhelmed and discouraged and wonder what the next step is. No matter what your experience is at this time, if you feel like you can benefit from having a therapist collaborate with you to research stuck patterns and personal problems and create options for recovery and self-improvement, then consider contacting me.

I utilize CBT, DBT , mindfulness practice, art, play therapy, and psychodynamic approaches in my therapy practice, as I believe therapy should be a holistic treatment approach that is strength-based and flexible for the client.
My core belief in therapeutic practice is that everyone has inherent value and strength, that with the right support, can be harnessed to create positive changes and meaningful growth. Offering a safe place where self-exploration, processing, and healing can be done, I will help you to build insight, resilience through healthy coping skills, and empowerment in reaching your therapeutic goals.

Often we wait until we have exhausted every measure before we seek professional help. You can start on your journey to healing, reconciliation, peace, and joy today. I believe that in times of adversity and struggle, we have the greatest potential for growth. It is often hard to see clearly how the difficulties we face will lead to positive changes, so instead we lose our way and get stuck in places of frustration, despair, and resentment. The change process is a journey-sometimes long and at times short. It is a process that gives us the opportunity to discover new ways of approaching our circumstances.

You may be on the fence about therapy because you were able to manage on your own before. Things that used to be simple have become increasingly more difficult, and you are frustrated with yourself. You know you are capable of more than what you are accomplishing now, but you feel stuck. Perhaps you can trace your fears to a specific event, when something challenging or traumatic interrupted your life--or perhaps they came on gradually. You have tried to ignore it and keep going, but the thoughts and feelings keep coming back. You may be experiencing anxiety, panic, depression, intrusive memories, or difficulty in relationships.

You simultaneously love your partner and even hope to stay in this relationship to keep your love, family, and dreams intact.

If you are new to therapy, reaching out for help is an act of courage and a demonstration of your inner strength and hope for a better tomorrow. If you are experienced with therapy, you have developed your lists of likes and dislikes based on your experiences in therapy. I know that therapy works from my own life's journey, and I have confidence therapy will work for you. Now the task is finding the right fit. I want to meet with you for a "no cost," 15 minute chat to see if I am a good fit for the situations in your life that are motivating you to seek help.

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