DBT is the foundation for my theoretical orientation. Dialectical Behavior Therapy offers an approach that allows the client peace in the conflicting ideas and the "Gray Area" of thoughts and feelings. The simple concept that two opposing feelings can exist in us at one time helps ease stress about our own life. DBT is efficacious in its ability to provide clients real-life skills and tools to address their needs immediately, without extensive sessions, training, or education.
Divorce is never easy for any person touched by it. Whether the family unit impacted is solely husband and wife, includes children, or reaches to in-laws, I am widely versed and here to help you walk through this incredibly stressful time. Court cases, custody, split households, and blended families are complex and unique, and require effort to fully work through. Impacts of divorce last decades, and maybe you never fully processed how it impacts you - it's never too late.
It's hard to know what will help us emotionally when we don't know ourselves. Part of learning how to love yourself now is to have a full picture of yesterday's self, today's self, and tomorrow's self. Working with my clients on grounding in identity helps them grow their own goals and ambitions, both emotionally and otherwise.
Many stresses in our lives come from our relationships, whether romantic or otherwise. I love helping my clients process their relationships holistically and providing them the tools they need to solve the puzzle of their interpersonal communication.
