More Info About My Practice

Roderic believes that those who suffer emotionally are isolated from knowledge and meaning in life. When symptoms do not make sense, one may become filled with grief, depressed, anxious, lonely, self -destructive, and demotivated to engage in life. When symptoms make sense, the body, mind, and spirit work in synergy to promote a good life. Freedom from emotional suffering is accomplished through gaining knowledge of one's psychology, working through one's process, and growing with compassion for one's Self through a commitment to change.

As a couple's therapist, Roderic explores relationship therapy inspired by a wide variety of pioneers in developing scientific and theoretical approaches to working with couples. These include such contributors as Dr.s' John and Julie Gottman, Dr. Fritz Perls, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for Couples, and attachment science. Mr. Burks explores unidentified or unfinished business in the relationship, communication, connection, vulnerability, trust, and recovery from wounded parts of the relationship. Mr. Burks works with couples to guide them to a place of rewarding integration through skill development to enhance understanding and intimacy with each other, build greater acceptance, and to promote growth, compromise, and enhanced communication. Mr. Burks believes a relationship "off track" must get "on track" through establishing new goals to improve both the quality of one's own independent life outside of the relationship while dually building new goals physically and emotionally as a couple in the relationship.

"Many who come to see me in my office have had some therapy experience in their past and yet are uneducated about their symptoms leaving them feeling distressed and hopeless about their future. Many find this lack of knowledge a significant contributor to being stuck in one's own life and relationships with others. I take an integrative, experiential, educational, analytical, and relational approach to my therapy work. I use several assessments to help in this process to establish baselines and monitor productive outcomes. It is important to know that your investment of time and resources in therapy is working to address your symptoms effectively. When you come to therapy, you should expect results through a quality engagement. I intend to provide a safe, compassionate, quality, and effective experience for all persons to grow".

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Integrative Therapy Systems offers Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills training groups for adults 21 and over facilitated by Roderic Burks, MS, MA, LPC. These groups provide comprehensive exposure to a wide variety of skills essential for those who may experience anger, anxiety, impulsivity, poor affect regulation, depression, and strained relationships as some of the issues DBT benefits. Other related conditions DBT skills address include creating and maintaining healthy relationships, better coping strategies, and identifying meaning, purpose, and creating well being in one's life.

Groups are delivered in an educational and experiential format in a once weekly hour and thirty-minute session that cover a broad spectrum of skills for mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Common DBT treatment spans over a six to eight week period for each one of four modules. A DBT program, thus, takes approximately seven to eight months to complete. Most gain benefit from going through the sequence two times to fully integrate these skills into their life. As a doctoral scholar/practitioner in the field of Mind-Body Medicine and Integrative Mental Health, Mr. Burks brings a depth of knowledge and diverse approach to teaching DBT skills and in providing DBT treatment.

The four DBT models include:

Mindfulness Practice: a deeper understanding of present experiences through a holistic approach. Mindfulness, when successfully practiced in one's life, can support a means to detach from many emotional perceptions that when not processed in a healthy way link to anger, anxiety, isolation, addictions, self-harm, and eventually hopelessness. Mindfulness is a state of Being that is aware of all frames of one's life choosing presence rather than an attachment to thoughts and perceptions that may often create distress.

Distress Tolerance: skills that support situations that would otherwise promote poor affect regulation where distress may lead to a chaotic life leaving one feeling lost, alone, impulsive, anxious, or in some cases withdrawn and depressed.

Interpersonal Effectiveness: creating healthy relationships with others both personally and professionally through skills that demonstrate mutual sensitivity to boundaries, healthy expression, connection, and growth.

Emotion Regulation: managing responses to triggers and environments that may cause anxiety, stress, impulsivity, and demotivation reducing loss and increasing gain relationally.

Day, evening, and weekend groups available. Groups are self-pay at approximately $55 a session not including materials fee and intakes. Insurance is not accepted for DBT Skills Training group courses.
