Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe we each have an incredible power to heal, renew and restore our lives. My treatment approach is based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., Research conduct by Dr. Linehan has documented the effectiveness of this treatment. The objective of this approach is to help individuals resolve crises by a accepting the client’s experience as valid while simultaneously expecting change. The methods utilized in DBT are: Individual DBT, Telephone Consultation to the client, Skills Training Group and Group Consultation to the Therapist.

Programs are available for adult and adolescent clients who are struggling with behavioral, emotional, and thinking patterns that are causing difficulty in their lives. Often, such clients have had life experiences that were emotionally invalidating and/or traumatic. Diagnostic categories appropriate for referral include, but not limited to: Borderline Personality Disorder, Pain Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, and more.

“Learn to build a life worth living”.

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
