I offer a comprehensive, fully adherent Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program for adolescents, young adults and families struggling with intense emotions, impulsivity and problematic or harmful behaviors. I work with clients to help them recognize harmful or self-defeating patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors and teach them practical skills to cope more effectively. My program includes:
· Individual DBT Therapy
· DBT Skills Groups
· Telephone Coaching
I am intensively-trained in DBT, completing DBT Intensive Training with Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP, developer of DBT, and Shari Manning, PhD. I attend regular DBT consultation team meetings with other intensively trained therapists.
As a DBT therapist, I make myself available to clients between sessions and work hard to build a very real and warm relationship that supports change.
