Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based practice that has been shown to help people tolerate uncomfortable emotions and decrease conflict in relationships.  Developed by Marsha Linehan, DBT was initially used with individuals who have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.

Since its inception, DBT has been adapted to help people who have survived trauma, as well as those suffering with substance use disorders, suicidal or self-injury tendencies, or other mental health issues.  While DBT is traditionally offered as a combination of structured group and individual therapy, the healthy coping skills can also be interwoven into stand-alone individual or group psychotherapy.
