Dialectical Behavior Therapy
If you have problems regulating your emotions, thinking patterns, and behaviors that lead to misery and distress, it’s time to look at your patterns. For this, we often use DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) techniques with our clients, which is a treatment that has been shown to produce results such as:
Enhance motivation and desire to live fully in your life,
Improve overall quality of life and create a life worth living,
Improve emotion management,
Improve interpersonal relating and communicating,
Decrease self-destructive behaviors,
And enhance your ability to get through crisis situations
Eastern meets Western principles
DBT uses both Western and Eastern principles and practices to help people balance acceptance and change, two opposing forces that generally create a rift for people who are struggling. It emphasizes the development of four skill sets; mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance.
Who is it for?
DBT skills are useful for pretty much everyone. We all have emotions, and learning to accurately recognize them in yourself and others, while processing difficult emotions appropriately, is our goal.
In regards to suicidal or self-harm behavior, DBT has the strongest research support of any intervention out there. In less severe areas, it’s also proven to be effective in treating addictive and eating disorders, those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), as well as depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, substance use and a variety of other symptoms.
We can help you create a life worth living, one present moment at a time.
