WHAT IS DBT?

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an effective, evidence-based, therapeutic model designed to help people live a life worth living.  DBT is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy combined with Eastern philosophies that is helpful for people struggling to manage intense emotions and/or behavioral issues.  DBT can be effective treatment for trauma, self-harm, anxiety, depression, substance use, and eating disorders. 

Comprehensive DBT consists of four required elements:

  • Individual Therapy

  • Skills Training

  • Phone Coaching

  • Consultation Team


At The DBT Center, we provide two more components:
