What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment option I offer in Spokane, WA. DBT provides individuals with the skills they need to overcome intense emotions and change problematic patterns of behavior. 

Research shows that DBT can successfully treat Borderline Personality Disorder, chronic self-injury, and suicidality. DBT treatments can also help individuals who struggle with depression, PTSD, anxiety, and other mood disorders to increase optimal functioning and improve overall well-being.
