Dialectical BehaviorTherapy
Practice Description: Congratulations on taking this important step toward improving your life. I believe that in order to grow and make changes in their life, people need validation, support & practical skills. For 25 years, I have striven to provide empathic, supportive & productive therapeutic relationships so you can feel safe while moving toward your goals. Each person's situation is unique and my therapy approach is designed to meet your individual situation. Many of my clients suffer from problems of emotional regulation, such as borderline personality, complex posttraumatic stress, depression, anxiety & bipolar disorder. I often incorporate dialectical behavioral therapy skill training into my eclectic therapy approach.

I have extensive experience in trauma recovery, depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships & problems of daily living. I offer individual, couple, & emotional regulation (DBT) skills therapy & supervision for therapists. Perhaps you are feeling stuck. In an atmosphere of validation, you can make difficult changes & feel more in control of your life.

My office is in downtown Bethesda close to the Beltway and accessible by Metro and the Bethesda Trolley. Easy meter parking and a county garage are on the same street. I see my office as a relaxed setting for your process of healing. If I can be of help to you, I encourage you to call. You don't have to do this alone.

Additional Comments: I have 5 associates in my practice who all specialize in DBT. We offer Comprehensive DBT services for adults, individual DBT for adolescents and provide training to other therapists on using DBT philosophy and skills to enhance their own therapy with BPD and other issues of emotional dysregulation.
I have several publications dealing with the treatment of childhood sexual abuse, incest, post traumatic stress disorder, and the rape crisis syndrome. I also train, supervise and provide consultation for other therapists on such topics as complex post traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, clients who self-injure, dissociative disorders, emotional regulation skills and dialectic behavior therapy.
