Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Coaching

Even though emotions are part of every minute of our life, 

most of us receive no formal education regarding them. 

 If you were lucky enough to grow up in a healthy environment, 

you were likely able to glean effective techniques for managing emotions from the 

modeling of the adults in your environment. 

For those with chaotic or unpredictable childhoods, it is the norm to pick up 

unhelpful patterns of dealing with emotions

 The good news is....emotions are fairly simple to understand


 once you know how they work, 

you can learn how to manage them more effectively!! 

The DBT skills provide a complete framework for understanding and controlling emotions.  

 Marsha Linehan developed this empirically validated approach of over 50 skills to help her clients achieve the lasting change they so desperately desired.   Millions worldwide have benefited from this incorporating these techniques in their lives, since DBT's original publication in 1993. 

Building on a foundation of Mindfulness, clients also learn 

Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance & Interpersonal Effectiveness skills.

  When combined, the skills provide a comprehensive framework

for handling any situation involving emotions - no matter how intense!

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Modules


The foundation of all skills. Mindfulness teaches us how to be present in every moment & is divided into "What" (Observed, Describe & Participate) and "How" (Non-Judgmental, Effective, One-mindful) Skills. Wise mind teaches us how to connect with our innate truth and not make decisions swayed by emotions.

Distress Tolerance

Skills to be used specifically in times of high emotional activation and stress. We think of these as the skills you use to make sure you don't make bad situations worse. Distress tolerance behaviors are concerned with tolerating and surviving crises and with accepting life as it is in the moment. Divided into Crisis Survival Strategies and Acceptance Skills.

Interpersonal Effectiveness

Skills for effectively communicating with others similar to those taught in assertiveness and interpersonal problem-solving classes. These skills include effective strategies for asking for what one needs, how to assertively say ‘no,’ and learning to cope with inevitable interpersonal conflict

Emotion Regulation

Think of this module like Emotions 101 - where you learn all the basics about emotions, how they work, what their roles are in survival, when certain emotions are/are not justified, and how to change them when your emotions are preventing you from achieving your goals.
