DBT is an evidenced-based treatment that combines cognitive behavioral interventions with acceptance and mindfulness methods. Through DBT I am able to teach you various skills to manage distressful situations, regulate your emotions, and improve/maintain your relationships. Through my practice, I have found that DBT can be effective for those who have difficulty managing thoughts, feelings, and urges.
Motivational Interviewing is an evidenced-based treatment that focuses on exploring and resolving uncertainty in order to make commitment to change possible for the individual. This approach is customized so that it can strengthen your motivation and move toward your goal by obtaining and exploring your own argument for change. I have found effectiveness in therapy sessions where the patients are struggling with codependent relationships- with partners, substances, or other addictions.
