About

Our comprehensive DBT program is committed to providing compassionate & effective treatment for individuals who may experience intense emotions (such as anxiety, depression, anger, shame, guilt), impulsive behaviours (such as self-harm, suicide, stealing, substance use, risky behaviours), & stormy relationships (which could look like switching between pushing people away & clinging to them, challenges with saying no). We also offer trauma treatment through Prolonged Exposure-DBT and/or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) because many of the current day experiences, emotions & views of the world, are based on previous experiences.
There are 4 components in our comprehensive DBT program at &therapy. Weekly individual therapy (where we work on your goals together), 24/7 phone coaching (because we want to help you use skills in the moment when you need them most), skills group (to learn the skills outside of your session) and therapist consult team (therapy for the therapist).
Reaching out to a therapist can be an irritating & stressful experience. We want to change that to an exciting & hopeful one! You're not alone - let's work together to build a sweet plan to help you reach your goals. Visit our website and Instagram (and.therapy) to learn more and connect with us today for a free consultation.

andtherapy (DBT)'s Groups

DBT Skills Group (age 18-26)

Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Mindfulness skills are taught in the 24-week group. Why would we spend time to learn about skills we may not use? Think of it like cooking. If we only know how to make eggs that may work for some time. If we are hosting someone who doesn't eat eggs, we may need to read some recipe's and practice making other meals before they come over. That's like skills group! We are giving you the recipe for the skills so you can practice and see which ones work for you!

More about this group

Multi-Family Skills Training (age 14-18)

This Skills Training group involves adolescences and a support person. It is 24 weeks long and goes through the comprehensive DBT skills. This is not group therapy! It's more of a class structure with the DBT therapist teaching the group how to use a skill and this being assigned for practice over the week. The goal is to help you with new strategies and behaviours to tolerate distress, regulate painful and intense emotions, increase awareness of thoughts and emotions, and to maintain and improve relationships.
