    About Ilyse Dobrow DiMarco:



















    Ilyse Dobrow DiMarco, Ph.D., is a Clinical Psychologist specializing in working with stressed moms. She received her B.A. from Yale University and her Ph.D. from Rutgers University. She has received extensive training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and is a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. As Dr. DiMarco navigated her own personal parenting journey and worked with other moms in her practice, it occurred to her that she had the tools—cognitive-behavioral therapy strategies—to help herself and other moms face the everyday challenges of motherhood. She also came to understand that moms often won’t make time to see a therapist, but will make time to read their favorite mom blog on their phone. So she decided to create DrCBTMom.com, a site combining the expert advice of a CBT self-help book with the warmth and readability of a mommy blog. Since starting the blog, she has written a book, Mom Brain and other, shorter pieces for numerous publications (including The Washington Post, Parents.com, Today Parents, Motherwell, Scary Mommy, Psychology Today, The Week, and Motherly). Check out her work for strategies for managing all kinds of motherhood stresses, from how to cope when you feel like a hot mess to how to cope with your neighborhood “hot moms;” from dealing with pressure from overzealous PTA reps to dealing with pressure from meddling in-laws, and much more! Follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Amazing ACT specialists and great guests!

This podcast has been so informative and helpful to my budding career as a therapist. Diana, Yael, Debbie, and Jill all offer unique perspectives and skills that have helped me with pandemic stress, working with clients (and others…) with narcissism, and working with suicidal ideation in clients, amongst many other things. Diana and Debbies “ACT daily journal” book has also been a great resource for me personally and professionally. For anyone wanting to incorporate ACT principles into their lives or the lives of their clients, this podcast is a GEM. I’m so thankful I have found you all as my guides, thank you thank you thank you!
