Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a treatment developed for people experiencing suicidal ideation, urges to self-harm, or other dangerous behavior urges. If you have an incredibly difficult time regulating big emotions, making your life feel like a roller coaster, despite what the world may tell you, there is nothing wrong with you. This means you were never given the opportunity to learn the right skills to manage these emotions and urges.


DBT focuses on teaching clients the skills to help you realize the life you want to live, as well as implementing these skills in your life. DBT includes a 6-month or 12-month commitment to both weekly therapy, but also participating in a weekly skills class. I offer DBT for both adult and teen clients, in partnership with Columbia City DBT. You can find information on Columbia City DBT’s skills groups, times, and rates here:
