Services with mental health & dependency specialists in Boca Raton, Boynton Beach & Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a specific form of therapy that teaches skills which have been clinically proven to help people better handle overwhelming emotions, recurring thoughts/worries, and difficulties maintaining boundaries in their relationships. Created by Marsha Linehan, PhD, DBT makes life easier by teaching skills that help people avoid making the difficult situations that arise in life worse through our actions and emotions. In essence, DBT works on the “steam in the pipe”, the underlying causes that result in unhealthy behaviors.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an individual process sculpted by a clinically proven effective treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. Our therapy sessions are goal directed and entail more than just talking about your week and how you feel. It’s about using examples from the content of each session to help promote change by identifying automatic negative thought patterns and challenging them in a helpful way.

Diagnosis & Referral
Find The Right Care
One of the primary functions a doctor performs is making an accurate diagnosis. After completing our initial session, I will evaluate you that day and give you the correct diagnosis and appropriate referral/recommendations if necessary. Getting the wrong diagnosis can be hazardous and result in the wrong medication, not getting access to available services and the wrong treatment interventions. Clinical psychologists have a doctorate in psychology and are highly specialized and trained in assessment, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Don’t risk seeing a generalist mental health therapist. Insist on seeing a specialist.
Evaluations or testing are sometimes needed to provide clinical evidence of a specific diagnosis like Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Many medications can only be prescribed after the appropriate testing is completed and documented. Other times, an evaluation is needed for a disability cases at your work or to apply for social security disability. Please call to find out if you meet the criteria and what kind of documentation can be provided.
