Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) therapists, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Our mission statement at DBT Dallas Associates is to be a leader in the community for educating and providing evidence based treatments for our clients to help them build a life worth living.
DBT Dallas Associates was selected in March 2015 to be one of the teams worldwide to receive intensive training with Marsha Linehan, PhD, and Melanie Harned, PhD for DBT Adapted Prolonged Exposure Therapy at the University of Washington in Seattle. Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) is a research based treatment shown to be effective in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Drs. Harned and Linehan adapted this treatment using the DBT principles, skills, and framework to treat individuals who suffer from trauma along with suicidal ideation and/or self harm. The treatment of DBT combined with PE has been researched with this population and shown to be effective in reducing suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety and trauma-related guilt and shame, with an overall improvement to normal functioning.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
