I offer a young-adult DBT informed support group for individuals who struggle with eating, obsessive compulsive disorders, and borderline personality. We meet weekly and learn skills associated with mindfulness, tolerating stress, and communicating effectively. You can get what you want when paralyzed by emotion.
Why participate in a support group?
If you are a person who often says, “no one gets me,” or “I don’t think anyone is ever going to understand what i’m going through,” or even “I am the only person who struggles like this,” Group therapy can take that perception away in an instant!
This is an opportunity to be heard by your peers and see how other people overcome their problems. So many people I work with feel isolated every day. Being a part of a group creates validation and attachment – two things many people seek. The process enables you to understand that you’re not the only person in the world suffering.
Change your life, Change your Behaviors!
Why DBT Informed Group Therapy?
I find that the rigidity of DBT doesn’t always work. If you are a person who finds that a rigid structure doesn’t always work, this is for you. DBT informed therapy keeps you supported and on track. You won’t feel bogged down every week. You will learn the skills without feeling pressured.
The group dynamic is always welcoming. The number of participants is always kept to a low number. The main components of Dialectrical Behavioral Therapy is always kept to a high standard. They include
- distress tolerance
- emotion regulation
- effective communication skills
Do you offer any other support groups?
I am beginning to consider running a
- parent group
- psychotherapy for eating disorders group
