DBT Therapy

DBT therapy for symptom management, understanding triggers, support and validation, enhancing quality of life, and more.

An authentic and honest exploration of feelings in DBT therapy.

If any of these sound like you:

  • You wish there was somebody who could tell you why your emotions feel so overwhelming and hard to control, even in everyday situations.
  • You wish there was somebody who could explain why you find yourself in the same type of destructive relationships, time and time again.
  • You wish there was somebody who could understand why sudden changes in plans throw you into a state of panic or despair.
  • You wish there was somebody who could help you understand why you react so intensely to situations that others seem to handle with ease.
  • You wish there was somebody who could tell you why the fear of abandonment makes it difficult for you to feel secure with friends and loved ones.
  • You wish there was somebody who could guide you on how to express your needs without the fear of conflict or rejection.

DBT therapy could be right for you.

We provide DBT therapy to help with…

Emotional Regulation:

DBT is particularly effective in helping individuals gain better control over their emotions. For those who experience emotions intensely and unpredictably, DBT offers tools and techniques to identify and label emotions accurately, understand their triggers, and apply strategies to manage intense feelings. This aspect of DBT is vital for those who find that their emotional responses can lead to impulsive actions or escalate conflicts, as it teaches skills like mindfulness, distress tolerance, and the ability to remain calm under pressure.

Interpersonal Effectiveness:

Another key component of DBT is enhancing interpersonal skills. Many people struggle with maintaining stable and healthy relationships due to patterns of intense emotional reactions and miscommunication. DBT addresses these issues by teaching skills such as active listening, assertiveness, and how to express one’s needs and set boundaries in a way that is respectful and clear. These skills are crucial for building and sustaining strong relationships both in personal and professional contexts, reducing misunderstandings, and improving overall social interactions.

Tolerance of Distress:

DBT helps individuals develop a higher tolerance for distressing situations, enabling them to cope with and endure negative emotions without resorting to self-destructive behaviors. This is particularly beneficial for those who experience anxiety, fear, or depression when faced with stressful scenarios. Through DBT, clients learn to accept and sit with uncomfortable feelings without judgment, use problem-solving skills to deal with crises, and recognize when it is appropriate to make a change or simply persevere through a challenge.

What are your rates?

What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, if you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.

How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. We tailor our therapeutic approach to your specific needs.

I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

We are so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.

My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?

If you are concerned about your relationship, and you would both like to work with us, we would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, we could work with only one of you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.

We Take Insurance!

Take a courageous first step towards getting to a better place and being a better you.
