Hi, so glad to meet you! I'm Alexis and I can't wait to work together.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy, first developed in the 1980s by Marsha M. Linehan, to treat patients suffering from borderline personality disorder. Since then, DBT’s use has broadened and now it is regularly employed as part of a treatment plan for people struggling with behaviors or emotions they can't control. This can include eating disorders, substance abuse, self-harm, and more. DBT is a skills-based approach that focuses on helping people increase their emotional and cognitive control by learning the triggers that lead to unwanted behaviors. Once triggers are identified, DBT teaches coping skills that include mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. A therapist specializing in DBT will help you to enhance your own capabilities, improve your motivation, provide support in-the-moment, and better manage your own life with problem-solving strategies. Think this approach might work for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s DBT specialists today.

Somatic therapy enlists the innate intelligence of the body as a catalyst for health. Because mind-body disconnect is often related to our deepest emotional wounds, attunement to our body’s responses to stressors is essential to healing. By bringing awareness to how emotions, sensations, thoughts & memories interconnect and influence each other, somatic psychology brings us home to ourselves.
