Are out of control emotions ruining your life? Do you long for a sense of contentedness and meaning? If so, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) may be right for you!
What in the World is DBT?
So by this point you might be wondering “What in the world is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)? ” Well, DBT is an evidence-based treatment that was originally designed to help individuals manage impulsive behaviors, emotional responses, and self-destructive urges. Through individual psychotherapy and skills training this evidence based treatment can help you learn and use new skills and strategies to develop a “life worth living.” DBT skills include skills for mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.
So you might be wondering, “Can DBT help me?” I’m so glad you asked…although DBT was originally developed to treat the chronically suicidal and those diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), research has shown that it is effective in treating a wide range of other disorders. I personally believe the skills can help anyone!
Utilizing DBT approaches I can help you decrease harmful patterns and/or behaviors and replace them with responses that help get you closer to the life you want. Call today to schedule your free 15 minute consultation!
