Below you will find many fantastic resources.

These links and videos offer a more in-depth overview of the various methods and theoretical backgrounds that support the “lens” through which I view therapy.

It is my hope that you will be curious and explore some of these links and videos.

Brene Brown ~ Vulnerability & Imperfection

Shame is an unspoken epidemic, the secret behind many forms of broken behavior. Brené Brown, whose earlier talk on vulnerability became a viral hit, explores what can happen when people confront their shame head-on. Her own humor, humanity and vulnerability shine through every word.

An excerpt from the audio program, Men, Women & Worthiness, by Brené Brown, PhD. Listen to the full audio program here: 

Shame and vulnerability researcher Dr. Brené Brown says shame is the intensely painful feeling that we are unworthy of love and belonging. It's the most primitive human emotion we all feel-and the one no one wants to talk about. If left to its own devices, Dr. Brown says, shame can destroy lives.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

The UCSF DBT Program for Adolescents and Young Adults created a fun, easy-to-understand overview of DBT. This 8-minute video is targeted toward adolescents and their families, but it is a great overview of the treatment for anyone who wants to learn more.


Dialectical behavior therapy for adolescents and young adults (DBT) is a clinical program within the Young Adult and Family Center that targets high risk, multi-problem adolescents.

We specialize in identifying and treating depression and risky behavior in adolescents, including self-injury, suicidal ideation and suicide attempts, substance use, binging and purging, risky sexual behavior, physical fighting, and other forms of risk-taking.


This lecture provides parents and professionals working with young people with guidance and practices to help teens manage intense feelings and handle anything life sends their way.

Based in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), these skills will help young people to: stay calm and mindful in difficult situations, effectively manage out-of-control emotions, reduce the pain of intense emotions, and get along with family and friends.
