    Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that was designed to help folks who struggle managing stress, who have difficulty maintaining stable relationships, and have a hard time regulating their emotions. DBT can help a wide variety of people who simply need a bit of extra help learning to manage their uncomfortable emotions and learn healthy relatiionship skills.

    DBT can help with:

    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Panic attacks
    • Phobias
    • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
    • Substance dependency
    • Persistent pain
    • Disordered eating
    • Sexual issues
    • Anger management issues
    • Non-Suicidal Self-Injury
    • Suicidal thoughts

    Most people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns tend to reap the benefits of DBT. If any of the above issues resonate with you, I encourage you to try dialectal behavioral therapy.

    With DBT techniques, you’ll be able to learn skills that are necessary for managing your emotions and behavior, and learn to live in the moment.

    Some DBT techniques are:

    • Mindfulness practices
    • Distress tolerance skills
    • Interpersonal effectiveness skills
    • Emotion regulation skills

    Dialectical behavioral therapy is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. DBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive.
