DBT was created by Martha Linehan to treat people suffering with Borderline Personality Disorder, which had previously been deemed untreatable, but I find that DBT skills (including Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotional Regulation, and Distress Tolerance) are useful to everyone. Including us! This group is meant to provide supplemental support to clients already in individual therapy. The group will meet for 90 minutes weekly for 16 weeks with 6-8 clients in a group. Clients will receive psychoeducation on the skills, discuss how they utilize them in daily life, and empathize and troubleshoot challenges with one another.
Many clients have shared with us that they "hate online dating" and struggle with it feeling hopeless or futile. The purpose of this group is to learn to move through the discomfort and anxiety of online dating in order to find your partner(s). The group will meet for 90 minutes weekly for 8-12 weeks with 4- 6 clients in a group. Clients will learn skills to cope with the feelings of anxiety, sadness, rejection, self-consciousness, anger, and loneliness that come-up. Clients will hear each others' stories and provide empathy, perspective, and encouragement.
The purpose of this group is to reduce your symptoms of PTSD and reduce feelings of shame by share your story in a safe space with other survivors. We run groups separately for adult survivors of: Rape, Domestic or Intimate Partner Violence, Childhood Sexual Abuse, Childhood Physical & Emotional Abuse. This group is meant for clients who have had at least 3 months of individual therapy and are actively attending at the time of the group. The group will meet for 90 minutes weekly for 8-12 weeks with 4- 6 clients in a group. There is a rigorous screening process for this group to ensure clients are ready for this step and that the environment is safe and supportive.
