Sometimes life can seem unmanageable…

...but here at DBT Eastside hope is alive.

You may have tried other talk therapies that didn’t work.

If you're ready for something different, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based approach built on the concept of balancing self-acceptance with change, and mastering concrete skills.

DBT works when other therapies don't.

How can I learn DBT?

We offer clients two options:

  1. Participate in Gold Standard DBT, including individual sessions with one of our DBT therapists

  2. Continue with your non-DBT therapist for individual therapy and attend DBT Eastside Skills Groups only. We offer two options for Skills Group. Our traditional DBT program and our Radically Open program.

Objectives of Gold Standard DBT - Our hopes for you:

  • Learn to deal with difficult emotions

  • Believe that life is worth living

  • Master concrete skills you can use for life

  • Trust in your own competency and ability to achieve your life aspirations/hopes/dreams

  • Feel like you can survive anything life sends your way

We see this work every day for the adults and teens in our programs.  Progress depends on each client's willingness to fully participate in learning and integrating skills into their lives.  If you're ready for change, DBT can help. 

DBT is known to greatly increase life satisfaction.
