Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is designed to support individuals in decreasing interpersonal conflicts and increasing their capacity to better manage unwanted thoughts, feelings, emotions, and reactive behaviors that negatively impact their day to day lives. Research demonstrates this to be an effective evidenced-based practice methodology.


DBT is broken down into four different modules which include:


  • Mindfulness
  • Distress tolerance
  • Emotion regulation
  • Interpersonal effectiveness


DBT is successfully proven to treat individuals with diagnosis' such as Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.


DBT Group is conducted over 20 weeks. Each session is two hours long and takes place once a week.
