Dialectical Behavior Therapy
If you are actively suicidal and/or self harming and in search of DBT I recommend looking into a full, comprehensive DBT program as that has been shown to be the most effective treatment to assist in managing these challenges. If time and/or resources limit you from participating in a full program I am able to provide you with DBT individal therapy in conjunction with your particpation in a skills group that is offered in the community. I have worked with several skills groups in the area and those that I recommend (as well as full programs) are listed under my resource page. My willingness to provide individual DBT without participation in a skills group is variable from person to person and decided on a case by case basis.
It is important for you to know that in order for you to utilize your mental health benefits that I will need to provide you with a diagnosis and that this diagnosis will become part of your medical record.
