Begin your Recovery Journey with DBT

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) offers a lifeline to individuals grappling with self-harm, illuminating a path to recovery. This therapeutic approach is designed to address the intense emotional pain that often leads to self-harming behaviors. Our therapists will provide  the tools and strategies necessary to navigate life’s challenges without resorting to self-injury.

DBT emphasizes the development of skills in four key areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These core components work in harmony to help individuals gain greater control over their thoughts and actions, fostering a sense of self-respect and building resilience against future crises. By learning to apply these skills in everyday life, those who participate in DBT can discover new ways to cope with difficult emotions, reduce their reliance on self-harm as a coping mechanism, and ultimately, create a life marked by hope, balance, and a deeper connection to themselves and others.

Our DBT Program combines: Individual Therapy, Group Skills Coaching, and Phone Coaching to ensure you learn real, valuable skills that you can apply in your life.
