Caroline Bryan, LMFT

Caroline Bryan, LMFTI believe each person possesses the innate ability to solve problems and heal from past trauma when given the right kind of setting, professional guidance, and unconditional support. I focus on doing what works for each individual to reduce suffering and build a life worth living. I also believe that skills learned in DBT are an integral part of the healing process. That is why I have chosen to focus my practice on providing the most comprehensive, compassionate, and adherent style of DBT available.

I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Integrative Restoration for Trauma (iRest), Trauma Education, and Exposure Therapy. I am also a certified Yoga Teacher (RYT200) specializing in Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Mindfulness Meditation. In my private practice, located in Danville, CA, I offer a complete DBT program of individual therapy, skills groups, phone coaching, and consultation team meetings.

Currently, I work with children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, gender issues, personality disorders, bipolar disorder, emotional regulation, and family or interpersonal communication challenges. I provide individual therapy and co-facilitate weekly DBT Adult and Multi-Family Skills Groups.

I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute, Berkeley. Before joining Mount Diablo Psychological Services, I worked for the Alameda Health System at Fairmont Hospital, San Leandro. At Fairmont, I treated patients with a wide range of severe mental health conditions, including schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, PTSD, major depressive disorder, anxiety, OCD, panic, and gender issues. After Fairmont, I completed a Post-Graduate Fellowship in Psychiatry at Kaiser Permanente, where I worked with adults, children, and families in group and individual settings.
