Do You Need DBT Therapy?

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment that has a singular purpose: to help you build a happier, more rewarding life, with plenty of time for things you enjoy.

Initially, DBT was developed for treating symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), but it has become an effective form of treatment for children, teens, and adults struggling with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Loneliness
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harming behavior
  • Substance abuse
  • Impulsive behaviors
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Relationship problems
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

If any of these issues are affecting you or someone you love, our DBT therapists in New Jersey can help. We will equip you with the tools and strategies to help effectively regulate your emotions, improve your relationships, and help you move closer to your goals.

How Does DBT Therapy Work?

DBT therapy helps you develop four core skills focused on acceptance and change. It’s about accepting your current circumstances and working towards making the necessary changes for a more fulfilling life.

  • Mindfulness: This approach is simply about being mindful of the here and now. Mindfulness skills help you slow down and focus on using healthy coping mechanisms when you’re handling stressful situations.
  • Distress Tolerance: Distress tolerance is about accepting what you cannot control. We will help you learn how you can handle stressful and painful situations without impulsive behavior. 
  • Emotion Regulation: Emotional regulation helps you understand and manage your emotions. You will be more aware of how your thoughts impact your feelings and behaviors, which will allow you to identify and change unwanted emotions and reduce their negative impact.
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness: Interpersonal effectiveness helps you get what you want and need in relationships. You will learn how to set clear boundaries with others, improve your social skills, and handle conflicts while maintaining self-respect. 

We provide DBT therapy as a multi-component treatment consisting of:

  • Weekly Individual Therapy: In one-on-one sessions, your therapist will provide personalized counseling based on who you are and what you need and will help you apply these skills in your everyday life. 
  • Weekly Skills Training Group: In group sessions, you’ll learn and practice DBT skills with 4 to 8 members under the guidance of a DBT therapist.
  • Phone Coaching: In between sessions, you can call your DBT therapist if you’re looking for guidance during difficult moments.
Living in the moment

Benefits Of DBT Therapy

  • Learn how to live in the moment
  • Break the cycle of negative thoughts and behaviors

  • Gain an understanding of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors

Our DBT therapy sessions in New Jersey are held in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space for you to grow and heal. We begin by identifying what’s troubling you and causing emotional pain. Afterward, we work closely with you to develop a structured path forward. We’ll help you develop the four core DBT skills, replace damaging habits, and empower you with the tools to address any issues that may arise in the future.

How Does DBT Therapy Work?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy New Jersey offers transformative potential for your life, helping you redefine how you understand and handle your emotions, moving away from feelings of overwhelm, emptiness, or frustration.

As your therapy progresses, you’ll notice significant improvements in your relationships. Those once challenging conversations will become opportunities for expressing your needs and enhancing mutual understanding, fostering deeper and more rewarding connections.

The way you experience stress will evolve. Through DBT, you’ll develop calmness and resilience, shifting away from unhelpful habits towards more constructive responses.

Incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine will enhance your present-moment awareness, allowing you to engage more deeply with yourself and your surroundings. This newfound consciousness will help you abandon negative behaviors in favor of positive, affirming choices.

Above all, Dialectical Behavior Therapy New Jersey is your pathway to self-acceptance and empowerment, providing you with lifelong skills for confidence and satisfaction.
