Dialectical Behavior Therapy
DBT is an effective treatment for high-risk, complex emotional and behavioral concerns. This can include everything from yelling and screaming at loved ones to cutting, burning, or poisoning the self. Individuals exhibiting symptoms of borderline personality disorder, self-injury, suicidality, addiction, eating disorders, or other severe mood or anxiety concerns may benefit from DBT. It provides a robust set of healthy coping skills to replace destructive behaviors and tame out-of-control emotions. Click HERE to learn more about what DBT is.
It is important to highlight that if you desire to build the life you want and experience the benefits of DBT, it will require an investment of time. All clients engage in (1) weekly individual therapy, (2) weekly group skills training, and (3) telephone coaching as needed for up to a year. Additionally, therapists must also attend (4) a weekly consultation team in order to keep their own skills sharp and to reduce burnout.
