What is DBT?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapy developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. It's designed to help people learn and apply new skills and strategies to:
better manage emotions,
reduce judgements (about self and others),
reduce self-destructive behaviors, and
build a life that feels worth living
What is a DBT group?
DBT group is a skills-based group which means that the focus is on learning new skills rather than on sharing and processing life experiences.
The DBT groups I run are split into three separate 6-8 week cycles that correspond to the DBT modules of Distress Tolerance, Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness.
Groups run for 2 hours in duration and meet once a week.
These groups are in English only.
How can I join a DBT group?
The groups are open to a maximum of 8 people. New group members can join at the start of each 6-8 week group cycle. The DBT groups I run are closed groups, which means that we don't accept new group members in the middle of a group cycle.
If you are interested in joining the next DBT group, please fill out the contact form to the right. We will then schedule a phone screening together to assess your needs and to provide you with further information about the group.
DBT group is currently cancelled due to the Coronavirus situation
