DBT Skills with Marsha Linehan (In Progress)
I’ve walked a path shaped by personal experiences and rigorous training, leading me to deeply understand the beauty of human resilience. With an educational background in psychology and personal experience working with kids and youth, I’ve delved into the intricate realms of the human mind and heart. But it’s my own life’s twists and turns that have ignited an unwavering empathy within me – the kind that comes from navigating challenges head-on. This empathy and personal experience fuels my passion to guide you through the tough terrains of trauma, stress, addiction, and whatever else you may encounter on your road to wellness. I’ve been privileged to witness the astonishing healing that blooms within the safe space of therapeutic relationships. I believe wholeheartedly in your capacity for growth, and together, we’ll chart a course through the shadows, illuminating your path to transformation and resilience.
My approach is all about narrative therapy – understanding that life is a series of stories waiting to be told and retold. Let’s reshape your narrative together, empowering you to thrive. Recognizing the individuality of every client I work with, I custom-tailor my approach to best suit each individual’s needs and preferences. Our journey will involve reinterpreting your experiences and crafting a story that truly reflects your strength.
How do you relax when you are outside of work?
I love to exercise and hang out with the people I love! Having been a lifelong field hockey player and having recently picked up boxing, I have a huge admiration for sports. When I can’t be active, I love to spend time with my dog, Simba, and spend a lazy day on the couch.
What would you be doing if you did not pursue the career path you have right now?
I would be in another helping profession hopefully working to positively impact the lives of others in some way. Although it is not solidified, the foundation lies in the ability to foster and create relationships with other people and leave a lasting and positive impact on the lives of those individuals that I meet.
What do you consider the most important value?
I believe that growth is the most important value, driving personal and collective progress. It opens us up to new perspectives, builds resilience, and empowers us to want to learn and better ourselves in various ways. Embracing growth unlocks potential and enriches lives with fresh insights and skills, fostering a fulfilling journey in this thing we call life.
