Two opposites can be true at the same time for example, "I want to change my life and change is hard". This is the definition of dialectics. DBT informs so much of my practice but I have moved away from "classic" DBT within my practice. This means we skip the agendas and diary cards (these are helpful sometimes and we can do them in pieces) and we move towards more relationship-based therapy. I have taught and can share any DBT skill and share how helpful mindfulness is toward personal growth.
Virtual Reality therapy allows us to face fears and reduce anxiety in a contemporary and innovative forum. Biofeedback is incorporated into this process and helps to inform spikes in cortisol levels as we work together. I also recommend to clients the Oura ring, which can offer valuable insights into your biological systems and manage your health better overall.
