Find Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Therapists & Counselors in Westminster, CO.

 

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that primarily helps people learn to regulate their emotions, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and recognize and deal with anxiety.

One of the core elements of DBT is learning mindfulness skills so that you remain present in the moment and not get overwhelmed with memories from your past or anxiety about the future. Dialectical behavioral therapy also helps you develop interpersonal skills so that you can assert your needs through healthy communication.

DBT was first developed to help people with borderline personality disorder, but DBT has been proven to be effective for mental health issues such as:

  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Substance, Drug, or Alcohol use
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

Whether you are located in downtown Westminster, the suburbs of Westminster, other nearby places such as Thornton, Commerce City, or anywhere else in Colorado, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
