About

If you are tired of digging around to find “what’s wrong with you” or endless therapy appointments that don't actually solve the problem, DBT will teach you how to meet your needs in relationships and stand up for yourself, how to choose your emotions and control them., and how to get through unimaginable moments intact. You'll learn how to build connections and live for today. In short? DBT will solve the problems you have without creating more. And remember, if you aren’t getting something out of psychotherapy, it’s time to move on. Having successfully helped surgeons to homemakers, get successful outcomes today with us.
We recognize that chaotic behaviors are very different from shut-down behaviors. DBT helps resolve emotional dysregulation while RO-DBT addresses emotional loneliness. We have a team that will focus on your specific needs, and not just "do DBT" simply because you are here. DBT isn't a 'one size fits all'.
I have been practicing 34 years in the field of medicine with a combined degree in Law, Medicine & Psychology I'm committed to comprehensive care. Trained by DBT creator Marsha Linehan, we have a true group practice, where you'll know everyone & get the expertise of each clinician. An engaging, warm environment focuses on the future-not revisiting the past.

More about this group

Mentalization Based Therapy

Mentalization is a psychological concept that describes the ability to understand the mental state of self and others which as the basis of overt behavior. Mentalization can be seen as a form of active mental activity, which allows us to perceive and interpret human behaviour in terms of intentional mental states (e.g. needs, desires, feelings, beliefs, goals, purposes, and reasons). This Group Builds on skills learned in DBT, and involves coursework specifically designed for MBT.
