I am certified in DBT and provide individual therapy to adults with Borderline Personality and CPTSD.
Clinical Social Worker in The Colony,
I am Certified in DBT. DBT is a skills-based therapy where you will learn specific ways to handle overwhelming emotions and urges. DBT will help you to overcome feelings of emptiness, negative self-talk, and problematic urges like suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and wanting to drink or use.
Someone might self-harm for a variety of reasons, but ultimately, self-harm is a person's way of expressing that something is wrong and they need help. So long as self-harm is not putting a person's life in danger, I approach the issue with compassion and non-judgment while we explore alternate methods to handle the feelings that drive the behavior.
Sometimes people who come to therapy aren't sure they want to change, or they aren't sure how to go about doing something different. With Motivational Interviewing, we discover what's most important to you and how to live your life in accordance with those values.
I'm not here to lecture you about your drinking or your using - you're probably seeking services because you already want help. I'm here to help you see your options more clearly, and help you develop the motivation you need to make lasting positive changes.
Sometimes, some things just suck. That's one of the unfortunate truths about life. But there is a way to acknowledge the suck and move forward, with intention, towards creating a better life. By identifying your values and holding them close while you work through difficult emotions, you can face life's challenges with increasing confidence and contentment.
