INDIVIDUAL THERAPY Individual sessions are provided on a weekly or twice weekly basis depending on need or desire. These sessions will be tailored and focused to your individual needs as mutually determined in consultation with me. The work is both exploratory and goal oriented. It is designed to help you become more attuned to your emotions, begin to uncover unconscious patterns and work towards change. I use psychodynamic or insight oriented techniques to help you become more aware of unconscious patterns of emotion or behavior that may be getting in the way of your goals, your relationships or your overall well-being. I also use mindfulness and meditation based practices to help build awareness of thoughts and feelings and to develop skill in staying fully present in the moments of your life.
INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS (IFS) IFS is an evidence based individual therapy that rests on the idea that we all naturally have many internal parts functioning in many different ways in effort to protect us and help us navigate our world. This treatment helps guide you in the process of exploring and understanding how different parts of you may be functioning well or getting in your way and will help access your core Self's natural ability to heal and guide you forward.
MINDFULNESS BASED CBT AND DBT These are both evidence based therapies that integrate mindfulness and meditation practices with techniques designed to help you make connections between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors and to learn to make more skillful choices to manage mood and behavior.
DBT GROUP SKILLS TRAINING Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7-8:15 and Wednesday afternoon from 1:30-2:45. These groups are workshops of up to 5 people designed to teach DBT skills as an essential component of the overall DBT program. DBT groups can work in conjunction with an already existing therapy that does not necessarily have to be from a DBT perspective. The only requirement for enrollment in group is that you be attending individual treatment at least once weekly and that you arrange a one time consultation to determine whether this group is right for you.
DBT GRADUATES GROUP Monday evenings from 7-8:15. This group is for individuals who have completed at least one full round of DBT skills training and are at a level of skills competence and behavioral control where they are ready for an advanced group. This group does not focus on teaching skills but on providing ongoing support for maintaining skills usage in complex day to day situations.
