DBT

Finding Balance

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is appropriate for people who struggle with:

  • Self-Harm
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance Use
  • Emotionally Driven Behavior
  • Anger Difficulties
  • Suicidal Tendencies
  • Relationship Conflicts

 

DBT uses specific skills and strategies to help people create healthier lives. Using DBT skills on a daily basis can increase self compassion which translates into improved self esteem and more functional relationships with family members, friends, and co-workers. DBT skills teach practical, concrete steps toward better problem solving, conflict management, and overall communication. These skills help people to become better regulated and happier in their lives so that emotions do not drive behaviors any longer and people can freely create lives that are meaningful and enjoyable.
