I specialize in DBT and working with sexuality and gender.
You deserve to LIVE your life fully! Are you stuck, merely existing, on autopilot, and just making it through your day? Pulled in too many directions and disconnected from yourself and the world? Life gets unbalanced and we shut down. Our emotions start taking control of us in the worst possible moments: we avoid with anxiety, isolate with sadness, and hide with guilt. What would you do if your thoughts and emotions didn’t hold you back? I want you to be free to live your life on YOUR terms and find meaning in all areas of life. Together we can work on your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors to build your life worth LIVING.

You deserve a safe space and a supportive person to help you navigate the landscape of your inner experience.

We, as humans, naturally want to avoid what is uncomfortable. People that find themselves reaching out to me for therapy are highly critical of themselves or do other things that do not work long-term like isolate, avoid, push things down, overthink, overeat, drink, just to name a few. I see many people that struggle with the ability to regulate their emotions or try not to have them. I see many people that struggle with all-or-nothing thinking or actions. If you can't do it all or be perfect, you find that you don't do it at all or you harshly judge yourself for it.

dialectical behavioral therapy are some examples of approaches I may integrate into our sessions.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and overtaken by thoughts of uncontrollable self doubt? Do you seem directionless or like you are just going through the motions? What if you could come to a place of authenticity and clarity? A place where you could feel more supported, understood, and in control? Even the strongest individuals can feel stuck navigating the expectations and demands of life. During my time in practice I have worked with individuals, couples, and families who are experiencing issues with perinatal/postpartum mood, relationships, life changes, grief & loss, depression, and anxiety.

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