DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) is an evidence based approach that focuses on building skills to better your life. Are you someone that struggles with intense emotions? Does it effect your relationships? Often people seek out therapy looking for help with feelings of sadness and worry. For some a past history of abuse, neglect, or other trauma leaves them easily dysregulated. It often runs on a spectrum of either blocking emotions (numbing) or feeling overwhelmed by them. In DBT we focus on learning to experience emotions without acting on them impulsively. Other skills that are addressed are distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness.
The three modes of treatment in DBT are individual psychotherapy, DBT Sklls Training, and in the moment telephone coaching.
