Individual DBT Outpatient Therapy Sessions
Appointments Available Monday-Thursday, 10:00 AM-8:00 PM; Friday, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM
One-on-one psychotherapy with a DBT therapist. Weekly 50-minute sessions. Individual sessions focus on helping you apply DBT skills to specific goals and situations in your life. The overall goal of DBT is to help clients create a "life worth living." Specifically, DBT coaching is designed to help clients move from being out of control to being in control of behavior, from being emotionally shut down to experiencing emotions fully, from being unable to build an ordinary life to being able to solve ordinary life problems, and from feeling incomplete to feeling complete and connected to others and the community.
DBT Skills Groups
Evening groups available
Small groups focused on learning and practicing DBT skills in weekly 90 minute sessions. Groups are offered in three 10-week modules: Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Distress Tolerance. Each module begins with Mindfulness skills work.. Each session includes homework review, introduction of new skills, and an opportunity to role play or otherwise practice the skills.
Clients must have a relationship with a licensed therapist – either through the Skyland Trail DBT Outpatient program or with another outpatient provider in the community – to attend skills groups.
Family DBT Skills Groups
Call for availability
These groups help families or friends support their loved ones. Weekly 90-minute sessions offered in six week increments help participants learn DBT skills to support family members and understand family dynamics. Participants will learn skills and practice with one another through modeling.
Participation is limited to families of Skyland Trail clients participating in residential, day treatment, IOP, or outpatient DBT programs. Families are encouraged to participate in family therapy, but family members are not required to have a relationship with a licensed therapist.
