Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) focuses on teaching individuals how to manage emotional distress, improve relationships, and live in the moment. At Spring Garden Counseling Inc., we integrate this into our practice to support clients who experience intense emotional fluctuations, engage in self-destructive behaviors, or grapple with borderline personality disorder.
DBT is grounded in the concept of dialectics, where opposite concepts are synthesized. This highly collaborative therapy helps the client and therapist to explore and resolve contradictions. The overarching aim is to help clients build a life that feels meaningful and worth living. The core components of dialectical behavior therapy are mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Mindfulness practices teach clients how to be in the present moment. Distress tolerance skills increase a person’s capacity to deal with negative emotions rather than run from them. Emotion regulation covers strategies to manage and change intense emotions.
We offer dialectical behavior therapy within a supportive and ethically conscientious environment. Our therapists are trained to deliver these strategies with compassion and sensitivity. We empower clients to navigate life’s challenges with new coping skills, helping to decrease the frequency and severity of destructive behaviors. Dialectical behavior therapy helps people who have not had success with other therapies, and our therapists have witnessed clients make profound advances in managing conditions such as bipolar disorder and PTSD.
For our Greensboro, North Carolina clients who struggle with the turmoil of intense emotions and the behaviors that often follow, we are ready to guide you through this process.
