I have advanced training in cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy and I incorporate mindfulness and interpersonal effectiveness techniques into your individualized treatment.
Are you or your teen having difficulty with relationships and want to learn new strategies to help stay calm and self-regulated despite intense feelings? Do past traumatic events negatively impact your current relationships? Are you or your teen feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, angry, or depressed? My approach to treatment is founded on developing a strong and empathic relationship with each patient, which facilitates meaningful changes, increased self-awareness, and personal growth. We can work together to develop skills that instill hope and confidence in your own, or your teen’s, ability to overcome life challenges that arise.

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