DBT THERAPY IN NEW YORK CITY

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that helps people learn new ways to manage overwhelming emotions, create healthier relationships, and build a life worth living. It combines strategies from mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness to create a balanced approach to handling life’s challenges. 

At Rainier Center, our therapists are trained in Comprehensive DBT, giving clients a more tailored, holistic approach to their treatment. Yet, individuals with milder concerns may opt for Informed DBT, a more flexible, personalized treatment. For those with more intense concerns, Comprehensive DBT remains the most effective option for reaching your goals and building a life worth living.

What is the difference between a comprehensive DBT program and Informed DBT therapy?

Comprehensive DBT Program

Informed DBT Therapy

Tailored for You: Our personalized and structured approach is designed to meet your unique needs, providing a supportive framework to help you feel better and enhance your mental well-being at your own pace.

Support for Intense Emotions: Perfect for those dealing with strong emotions, our therapy offers additional support to help navigate and manage intense concerns.

Focus on Self-Discovery: We emphasize self-awareness and coping skills, equipping you with tools to understand and effectively handle your emotions and behaviors.

Flexible Duration: Your journey is unique, and our treatment spans an average of 6 months to a year, depending on your individual progress. Research indicates that a full year of comprehensive DBT therapy yields the most effective results, with the initial months dedicated to skill acquisition and the latter months to mastery.

Draws on traditional principles without mandating all 4 components of comprehensive DBT (i.e., skill groups, phone coaching, consultation meetings, and training).

Individually Tailored and Adaptable: Customized to meet individual needs, providing flexibility in both treatment approaches and pacing.

Designed for Mild Concerns: Optimal for those with less concerning symptoms, offering a therapy option that is less intensive yet effective.

Prioritizing Self-Understanding: Focuses on enhancing self-awareness and coping skills, equipping individuals with tools to manage emotions and behaviors.

Varied Duration: Treatment duration and structure are adjusted based on individual progress and needs, catering to diverse levels of engagement.
