Online Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Group
Do you find yourself struggling to control your emotions?
Have you experienced a love-hate relationship with romantic partners, friends or family?
Has your sense of self been difficult to find at times- as though you are just an observer of your life?
Have you self harmed in order to cope with intense emotional pain?
If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions you may benefit from a type of therapy called "Dialectical Behavioral Therapy".
This therapy was founded by a psychologist named Marsha Linehan. She developed this therapy because she was suffering from the same problems listed above and was not getting better with traditional cognitive-behavioral or psychoanalytical work. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy was designed to take place in group. Dr. Linehan believed the group was the best place to practice new skills in a safe place. A group also affords the ability to raise your awareness of how you interact with others.
If you feel you could benefit from attending a group developed to improve distress tolerance, emotional regulation and deepen your sense of self, book a free consultation and lets discuss the first steps.
Group will be completely online with all materials provided through secure messaging. Each group will last approximately 60 minutes. Cost of the group is $25 per session. The group will run for 8 weeks in duration.You will log into group through a secure video platform with a link either emailed or texted to you. You may utilize a computer, tablet or smart phone for the group.
As the wait list is currently forming, the dates and times of the group have not yet been set in stone. Consideration will be given to all on the waiting list and the days and time of the group will be determined taking in to account all schedules. The next group will begin in mid February 2020.
As an add on service, you may also utilize a messaging subscription plan at the cost of $25 weekly. For the duration of your DBT group you may send and receive unlimited text messages to support skill use and problem solving. Secure messaging- it should be noted- is not to be used for crisis or emergency purposes. Responses from me can take up to 24 hours to occur.
Transparency statement on pricing: Your total cost for weekly group for 8 weeks is $200. In order to promote follow through, you must prepay for the first 4 weeks to secure your spot in group. This is a charge of $100 for the first 4 weeks of group. You will then be charged the remaining $100 at the start of the final 4 weeks of group. The add on text package will be charged weekly.
I do require group participants to schedule a full initial session with me so that I can accurately assess your needs.
I do encourage group participants to consider individual therapy sessions weekly or bi-weekly during the group process.
