Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
During my clinical internship at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center, I was trained in Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Then I focused my post- doctorate hours in a DBT private practice, joining a consultation team of DBT experts. I lead ‘DBT skills groups’ and had individual DBT supervision. Since then, I have seen numerous DBT clients in my private practice and helped many of them build a ‘life worth living’ through skills group and intense individual treatment. Clients who find DBT helpful often note how they never realized how powerful accepting reality is and that they are thankful to have appropriate skills to help them cope with their painful emotions and difficult relationships. I currently run a DBT skills group and see clients individually for DBT informed treatment.
