Group Focus:

Through group participation and assigned homework between sessions, patients will learn core dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) concepts, including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Patients will learn to bring acceptance with change, gain new skills to replace behaviors that do not work, and understand how to validate their emotions and experiences.

Participants: Current LifeStance Health patients who are 12 to 17 years old with a diagnosis of anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, OCD, or any other disorder which struggles with emotional regulation, distress tolerance, or interpersonal effectiveness and/or would benefit from learning new coping skills. Ten participants will be in this closed group.

Cost: Insurance and self-pay are accepted
