Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a specialized form of cognitive-behavioral therapy designed to help adults, adolescents and their families cope more effectively with “emotion dysregulation,” and a combination of some of the following problems:

  • Impulsivity
  • Intentional self-injury
  • Struggles with identity and sense of self
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Anxiety, depression, anger
  • Difficult relationships and family conflicts

Published research in DBT has demonstrated success with clients struggling with a number of problems including emotional highs and lows, depression, eating disorders, impulsive behaviors, suicidal behaviors, borderline personality disorder features, and addictions while also enhancing quality of life.
