Starting Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

What is dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)?

At Thriveworks, Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) primarily concentrates on assisting individuals in emotion regulation, enhancing interpersonal relationships, and acquiring effective coping strategies for managing stress and emotional difficulties.

How does DBT work?

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) targets your personal challenges. You may work with your DBT therapist to maintain diary cards to monitor progress, emphasizing validation and support in the therapeutic relationship. DBT follows a stage-based approach, prioritizing crisis reduction initially and life satisfaction.

What is DBT best used for?

DBT was initially developed to address the needs of individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD). However, its versatile approach has enabled its application to a wide range of mental health conditions, including but not limited to, anxiety, depression, stress, and anger issues.

What are the 4 pillars of DBT?

The 4 pillars of DBT are mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance.

Is DBT better than EMDR?

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) have distinct purposes and aren't inherently superior or inferior to one another. DBT is most effective for managing emotional regulation, personality disorders, and interpersonal challenges, while EMDR is specifically tailored for individuals with trauma-related conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

What's better: CBT or DBT?

The selection between Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) hinges on an individual's distinct requirements and the specific nature of their concerns. CBT is commonly preferred for a broad spectrum of conditions like anxiety and depression, whereas DBT stands out in aiding individuals dealing with borderline personality disorder and challenges associated with emotional regulation.

Is DBT conducted in person or online?

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) with therapists at Thriveworks in Pflugerville, TX is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How many months is DBT?

The duration of a standard DBT program is typically around 24 weeks, which is roughly six months. The actualnumber of sessions will vary depending on the issues you wish to address.

I have used many different counselors in different cities/states and I have had a phenomenal experience with Deissy Rosenbaum. She has helped with a broad range of issues from cultural assimilation to ADHD to reprocessing childhood trauma through a unique method of EMDR therapy. Because I had her support, I not only made it through a tough year (2020) but am thriving and have made progress in so many areas of my life.

I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.

Words cannot express how awesome Grichell is!! I’ve seen a few therapists in my life, and by far she has been the only one to quickly figure out a way to explain things to me that make sense. There’s never any judgement, only direct advice and counsel that has helped me so much. I actually enjoy and look forward to my time with her! If you are told she has no openings, just know, she is well worth the wait in line.

I had the pleasure of using Alison Riley for my councilor. She's absolutely wonderful! She made me feel comfortable right away, which isn't the easiest thing to do. I was able to see things that I had closed myself off to for the longest, and she was even willing to have some of people I needed to talk to there so it was a neutral environment. I truly appreciate all the support she's provided. I feel like I'm much calmer now and much less anxious. Thank you so much, Alison!

I've had the privilege of working with Veronica and I'm truly grateful for her. It was the first time I felt accepted for who I am and comfortable to speak my truth. She has a very warm and accepting spirit that makes you feel at ease. The atmosphere is inviting and calm that's filled with a sense of peace. I will always recommend Veronica at Thrive Works and thankful for this experience!
