DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY (DBT)
I provide Dialectical Behavior Therapy to help adolescents and adults build joyful fulfilling lives. DBT is an evidence-based form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). DBT is effective at producing significant and long-lasting improvement by decreasing the frequency and severity of challenging behaviors, increasing motivation, emphasizing strengths, and translating skills learned into a person’s everyday life.
DBT places emphasis on balancing acceptance and change to build a life worth living under the following categories: Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance, Mindfulness and Interpersonal Effectiveness.
WHAT TO EXPECT
I offer DBT-Informed care, meaning that I offer individual DBT Skills training and incorporate DBT philosophies, attitudes and protocols to help clients build happy, healthy lives. DBT clients will use DBT Diary Cards to track intensity of emotions, behaviors and skills learned. *Disclosure: I am not part of a fully adherent DBT program, as I don't offer a DBT skills groups, nor am I on a consultation team at this time.
