Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based therapy model that helps with managing emotions, improving relationships, coping with stress, and building mindfulness. We’ve all experienced a great life disrupter these past months with COVID-19 and may be feeling more on-edge or isolated than usual. This group can help you learn practical skills to recover and cope as well as remind you that you’re not alone in the struggle.
Co-led by Brooke Huminski, LICSW and Jennifer Kittler, PhD, this 10-session group is currently being offered remotely via an online platform in order to ensure the safety of group participants.
