Individual DBT Outpatient Therapy Sessions
Appointments Available Monday-Thursday, 4:00-8:00 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.
