DBT Skills Group

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidenced based practice that brings together our emotional experience and logical reasoning for a wise-minded perspective. This group focuses on helping clients to develop and practice applying coping skills for emotional overwhelm and effective communication. The four main categories of skills include 1) mindfulness, which helps people to stay present in their experience and accept the reality of situations, 2) distress tolerance, which helps people to withstand negative emotions and reduce reactivity, 3) emotional regulation, which helps people to manage and change intense emotions that may be causing problems, and 4) interpersonal effectiveness, which helps people to assertively communicate and strengthen relationships. If you are interested in joining this group, please let me know.
