Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT, or Dialectical Behavior Therapy, is a highly effective treatment designed to help emotionally sensitive individuals develop skills to cope with life’s stresses. Members of our class come from a variety of backgrounds and struggle with different kinds of problems, including physical illnesses, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obsessional thinking, relationship difficulties, self-harm and poor anger management.

Are your emotions controlling you?

“I’m sad all the time.”

“I try to be assertive, but I get so angry I end up yelling and saying things I regret.”

“I can’t tell what I am feeling; I just feel numb all of the time.”

“I want to stop the constant tape playing in my head.”

“I used to be able to control my emotions, but now they feel so out of control.”
