What We Treat
Many people who benefit from our DBT program experience pervasive difficulty with intense emotions. The way that each person experiences and responds to emotions may vary drastically. Some of our clients feel their emotions are out of control, leading to impulsive or destructive behaviors. Others may describe a feeling of numbness, and have learned over time to suppress their emotions, or have difficulty labeling the way they feel. In DBT, we aim to teach clients how to experience their emotions in a more healthy, effective way, integrate skills and change problematic behavioral and relational patterns to ultimately experience life in a more productive and fulfilling way.
