Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based, highly effective combination of cognitive and behavioral therapies. Our Clinical Director, Krystina Davis, sees the positive outcomes of intensive DBT treatment every day.

It is patient-focused, family-focused and strength-based, which are all key components of an effective treatment program. At the end of their time with us, patients leave with a new set of skills they can rely on whenever they face difficult situations. DBT truly is life changing."

I like DBT because it gives us an opportunity to empower our patients to improve their own lives. It is patient-focused, family-focused and strength-based, which are all key components of an effective treatment program. At the end of their time with us, patients leave with a new set of skills they can rely on whenever they face difficult situations. DBT truly is life changing.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) teaches a set of skills which patients can use to be more mindful, cope better with their emotions, improve their relationships and handle stressful situations more effectively. Our CEO, Rob Hittmeier, believes strongly in the power of DBT and personally uses DBT skills often in his own life.

"DBT skills and concepts can help all of us cope with the challenges of daily life. In particular, I really like the concept of Wise Mind, a balance between Rational Mind and Emotion Mind, and the state of mind we should achieve before making important decisions. I also spend a lot of time using the Ride the Wave skill, which reminds me that while feeling strong emotions like fear or frustration may be uncomfortable, they are temporary and will pass.”
