Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment model designed to help clients, who are struggling with patterns of intense emotional distress and conflict, learn new ways to cope.

Your team of psychologists will tailor strategies to empower each client to manage difficult emotions, improve relationships, tolerate distress without acting impulsively, and participate fully in daily life experiences.

At each step of this process, our psychologists support you to eliminate obstacles and achieve your goals. We guide clients to develop new skills to handle intense emotions, cultivate acceptance and mindfulness, and implement effective changes to your thoughts and behavior.

We focus on the following four DBT modules: Distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

The groups are 90 minutes long, meet once a week, and all clients must commit to either a 6 or 9-week course in advance.

If you can relate to the four questions below, we welcome you to look at our Dialectical Behavioral Therapy group.

  1. Do your emotions interfere with your relationships, work, school, or goals?
  2. Do you think in extremes, such as all or nothing styles of thinking?
  3. Do you experience emotions more intensely and stronger than other people?
  4. Do your emotions feel out of control, overwhelming, or debilitating?
