Join us every Friday to learn new DBT skills to help you build distress tolerance, self-regulate your overwhelming emotions, and develop healthier bonds. The facilitator, Kathryn, was trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy through Marsha Linehan's Behavioral Tech Program. She is dedicated to helping women improve their lives, learn how to regulate their emotions, develop effective communication and coping skills. This DBT skill group is for those who are not living up to their best potential in life and would like to do and feel better. Hope to see you soon.
