DBT.jpg

dialectical behavior therapy

Dialectical means that life isn’t always black and white. More often, we find wisdom is somewhere in the middle — somewhere in the gray between two extremes. DBT teaches skills to concretely change behaviors and learn to cope with out of control emotions. It also helps us create balance so we can see ourselves not as perfect or as failures; we learn to accept our imperfections and find we are “good enough.”

eye movement desensitization and reprocessing

EMDR is that it is a type of therapy that processes and heals traumatic memories. When a traumatic event happens to a person, their brains and bodies change physiologically. These changes then cause the person to feel constantly on high alert to avoid reminders of the painful event, and often they re-experience the event as if it just happened. EMDR allows us to heal and put the past where it belongs — in the past.
