Understanding relationships within the psychodynamic framework and/ or concurrently learning CBT and DBT skills can be extremely helpful in understanding our thoughts and emotions.
Have you ever felt your interactions with others do not represent your true self? Do you often feel misunderstood? Do you lack emotional energy or avoid uncomfortable situations? Are you often triggered but lack self-awareness to understand the source of your feelings? Perhaps you are a teen or young adult wondering how your feelings and emotional intelligence will affect your life.

Trust is the most important part of any relationship. It's important to be able to trust others but more importantly to trust yourself. “The true key is trust in self, for when I trust myself I fear no one else, I took control of my life, just as anyone can, I want everyone to see it’s in the palm of your hand, the past is gone, the future yet unborn, but right here and now is where it all goes on”-MCA Beastie Boys. With trust you can increase your connection to others as well as increase your ability to tolerate life’s ups and downs and enjoy life in the moment.

I am intensively trained in DBT , and can teach you a variety of healthy coping skills to address any behavior or difficult emotions.

When you are overwhelmed with emotions like doubt, anxiety or even emptiness, it may feel as though you are drowning in an ocean of despair. You’ve probably told the closest people in your life about what you’re experiencing, but you fear being a burden to someone else and you can’t seem to shut off the negative thoughts that continue to invade your brain. The worry and loss of control you feel may manifest into eating disorders, OCD, and various anxiety disorders in order to temporarily relieve pain. That's when a mental health professional can help!

Among the modalities we've trained in and adapted for the LGBTQ community: CBT, DBT , EMDR, Imago couples counseling, Emotionally Focused Therapy for relationships, and sex therapy.
IPG PAVED THE WAY for other gay affirmative therapists - we started in 1983 specifically to provide therapy to the gay and lesbian community, back when most practitioners thought it was a mental illness. We're still trailblazers: we work with transgender people, bisexuals/pansexuals, kinky people, couples who practice consensual nonmonogamy, and others who make up the "Q" in LGBTQ. You may not want therapy BECAUSE you are gay, but you definitely want a therapist who is not only affirming but knowledgeable. We understand the special issues of LGBTQ individuals, couples, and families, and we provide sex therapy as well.

My therapeutic philosophy emphasizes self-determination with a person-centered and strengths-based focus, while utilizing research-based interventions including DBT and CBT.
Martin Luther King once said, “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” Throughout this journey of life, often times we are faced with obstacles that can lead to feelings of overwhelm, stress, and worry. Some stairs might feel crooked and some might feel broken, and asking for guidance on navigating our staircases can feel daunting and vulnerable. However, in doing so, I assure you are taking the most important first step toward gaining greater perspective of your “staircase” and maintaining your emotional wellness.

I have specialized training in treating PTSD, Complex PTSD and Dissociation using a relational approach along with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ).
My practice is based on the understanding that many clients have suffered overwhelming, traumatic, or adverse childhood experiences regardless of whether they are coming to therapy specifically due to these experiences. With compassion and care, I approach every session from a trauma informed lens. Instead of asking, "What is wrong with you?" I explore, "What have you experienced in your life and how might these symptoms be a response to it?"

Finding a therapist that you can trust is important. In my experience, I recognize that so many of us are unfairly hard on ourselves, and I seek to help empower people within a supportive space. I am a strong believer in people's strengths, potential for growth, healing and self-realization. I specialize in working with people who tend to shut down or look for quick comfort when facing the stress and challenges of life. I help my clients understand their triggers and learn new coping skills that help them feel healthier and more confident.

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