Who Can Benefit from DBT?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a non-medication, 12-session psychological treatment program that's designed for people who are leading emotionally painful lives and feel like life itself is crushing them. A dialectical approach focuses on developing the ability to identify and look at different viewpoints, challenge your assumptions, and balance between your changing outlook and accepting situations as they are to create new perceptions and perspectives to help you move forward and lead a happier life.  

Many people in our therapy program have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and have tried countless other treatments without relief. 

DBT has been demonstrated to be effective in helping people work through problems including:

  • Overwhelming emotions
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Self injury
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Substance use
  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma
  • Challenging relationships that are filled with conflict or arguments
