Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. DBT is an effective treatment for borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, anxiety, trauma and depression. I offer a modification of traditional DBT treatment. Traditional treatment includes weekly individual therapy, weekly skills training (usually in group), as needed consultation outside of sessions, and weekly therapist consultation meetings. Modified DBT is a less intense form of treatment. I offer individual therapy and individual skills training. Individuals can choose to attend once or twice a week. Individuals may be referred to a DBT skills group in the community or a formal DBT program if necessary.

DBT teaches specific skills to help you regulate your moods, cope with painful emotions, decrease anxiety and increase energy and motivation.
