DBT Therapy will help your middle school aged child:
**Regulate emotions so they can respond instead of reacting to situations and communicate more effectively with parents and others so they will feel more supported, heard, and less judged
**Learn concrete coping strategies to deal with difficulties so that they no longer respond with impulsive behavior at the moment and recognize avoidant behaviors, such as self-harm and substance abuse, as not being a helpful or effective solution, and consciously manage those behaviors while utilizing healthier coping strategies
**Be happy, even under the many stresses of teenage life
If you are reading this, you are struggling. Your relationships are off, you feel lost at work, and you might even feel lost in your life. You may look around and wonder why everything feels so wrong, but you can’t seem to fix it. It’s gotten to the point where most, if not all aspects of life are unnecessarily hard and you don’t know why. You just know you need help.
It doesn’t need to be like this and if you are reading this, you know that. There are solutions and here at Eddins Counseling Group, we know that you are not alone in what you feel and we help people like you every day. From your perspective, it looks like there is no way forward, out of this mess, and away from these feelings, but there is.
You are not broken, you are not “not enough”, and there is a way forward. Your pain, fear, anger, sadness, loss it’s all a part of you, but it is not you. It is not your life. It is not all that you have.
ECG is not your “usual” therapist office that sits back, stares, and nods while occasionally asking the age-old question “How does that make you feel?” While it is a question, it’s not the only one. We are an active participant and guide on your healing journey and we will fit you and your situation with the right counselor for you, not the schedule for us.
We understand that this is hard for you and we will support you every step of the way because you are never alone. You are merely stuck. You have worked really hard to build up your life and we think it’s time you get to live it.
