I specialize in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that blends mindfulness meditation, interpersonal skills, and emotion regulation skills to help you improve your mood, reduce stress, and get along better with others. This approach was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan at University of Washington, and has been rigorously tested and proven effective for many emotional and behavioral problems.
Therapy is never one-size-fits-all, so we will discuss your needs and see if DBT is a good fit for you, or if your needs are best served by another approach. Not every client needs the full DBT treatment, but may benefit from learning some of the DBT skills.
DBT may be a good fit for you if you experience any of the following problems:
- Borderline personality disorder
- Unstable moods
- Depression, feeling hopeless or bad about yourself
- Anxiety that includes difficulty focusing, racing mind, and never being present
- Problems getting along with others or sabotaging relationships
