Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Bad things happen to good people.  While traumatic experiences may feel impossible to overcome, you have the power within yourself to grow past your experiences and heal…especially with a little help!

We at Kaafi Counseling strongly believe in the strength of the individual to not only move past hurtful experiences, but to integrate them into the self in such a way that allows you to return to the person that you have always been.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) has been proven to be effective in treating symptoms related to emotional trauma, such as: borderline personality disorder (BPD), and complex post-traumatic disorder (CPTSD), suicidal ideation, as well as anxiety and depression. It allows for the integration and acceptance of upsetting or traumatic experiences, while helping patients tolerate stressful experiences, regulate emotions, and improve interpersonal skills.

DBT leads clients to understanding the chain of events that have led to disordered thinking and/or relating, and the subsequent behavioral patterns which limit living a comfortable and fulfilled life.
