We will utilize a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) framework, with healthy and effective techniques from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT); emphasizing coping skills to help you better manage difficult emotions.
Life can be overwhelming when we are experiencing conflict, negative thoughts and feelings. My goal is to help you feel truly satisfied and reach your potential. I enjoy working with young adults and adults. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, and ADHD. For the first few sessions, we will discuss your history and the impact it has on your day to day life. We will then discuss various approaches to help you feel better, and together, we will develop a treatment plan to help you reach realistic goal. I am registered Clinical Supervisor for LGPC and a Nationally Certified Sign Language Interpreter.

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.

Many of us don't know where to begin at the moment we realize we need help or simply become interested in exploring our lives and relationships. We may hear about many different treatment modalities (CBT, DBT , EMDR, etc.) and feel confused about what "type" of therapist we should meet with. I simplify all of this by being straight-forward, down-to-earth, and adept at helping you use the best and most effective components of every modality available. Within our first meeting you will have a better understanding of yourself and what you want to manifest in your life.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Sex Therapy.
*I CURRENTLY HAVE LIMITED OPENINGS* Feelings of anxiety, depression, and grief are totally normal responses in these difficult times. My goal as a therapist is to guide clients through whatever is keeping them from living their happiest lives — whether the issue is more recent/due to COVID-19, or a deeper issue that has been draining someone’s energy for years (or a lifetime). I operate from a collaborative, strengths-based perspective to help clients understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I help clients develop strategies to mitigate anxiety, depression, and trauma/PTSD symptoms that interfere with their well-being.

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