Skills Coaching

Everyone can benefit from enhanced coping skills.

 

A common misconception is that skills use is designed to get rid of tricky emotions, thoughts, and impulses. Instead, skills help us to navigate these experiences in a mindful manner without losing valuable emotional data. I am prepared to teach skills derived from dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Commonly taught skills include grounding, self-soothing interventions, progressive muscle relaxation, paced breathing, mindfulness skills, and interpersonal effectiveness strategies. At this time, I do not offer full treatment courses in ACT, CBT, or DBT.

Whether you need sessions fully focused on skills coaching or request skills coaching to be incorporated into one of the approaches above, I am here to assist.
