Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Build healthy relationships, set boundaries, and experience personal growth.
One client said, “DBT should be taught in schools.” These are skills everyone can use, no matter your background. DBT will equip you with practical tools you can use everyday to help manage emotions more effectively, stay present in the moment to be more engaged in your daily life and so much more.
What is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy?
Learn how to cope with feeling sad, depressed, or suicidal
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy developed by Marsha Linehan. It was created to treat suicidal patients and those with Borderline Personality Disorder, but is now recognized as an effective treatment for a variety of conditions including PTSD, depression, substance use, eating disorders, and trauma. The word “dialectical” means a synthesis or combining of opposites. It is the practice of pushing for change while accepting where you are.
