Clinic-Based DBT IOP Services

If you're ready to start your journey, I'm here to help. Together we can work on the issues that matter to you and build a happier and healthier life.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and specialize in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I currently work with adolescents and adults struggling with regulating difficult emotions and navigating relationships. I use a nonjudgmental stance - meaning I seek to balance the truth of the client with the needs of the current moment. Mindfulness practice is utilized as a part of therapy to assist you in gaining awareness of the present moment.

I have experience treating anxiety, BPD, PTSD, depression, bipolar disorders, self-harm and eating disorders. I have special interest in the treatment of eating disorders, adolescents and young adults. I lead an Adolescent DBT skills group in addition to adult DBT groups.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

ACP's DBT program adheres to the Linehan model of DBT, is certified by MN DHS. Our clients meet with their individual therapist for one hour a week and attend a two-hour weekly skills group for at least 26 weeks. Unlike traditional group psychotherapy which focuses on processing experiences and feelings, DBT groups focus on learning four sets of important skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. DBT a very effective treatment for multiple conditions including borderline personality disorder, depression, PTSD, impulsivity, eating disorders, and some forms of anxiety.
