A Full Service DBT Clinic in West Bloomfield, Michigan

We are a full service DBT clinic offering individual psychotherapy, skills training groups for clients and parents, phone coaching, and therapist case consultation for our therapists. We treat children, adolescents, adults, and families at the clinic. Individual skills sessions are offered to children between the ages of 8-12 to learn how to regulate their emotions. Adolescent groups begin at 13 years of age. We offer groups based on age ranging from adolescent groups, young adult groups, and adult groups.

Our goal is to empower individuals and their families to lead healthier, more peaceful lives. We also coordinate with providers regularly, including hospitals, psychiatrists, therapists, schools, etc., for continuity of care. Skills groups are offered in the evenings and on weekends.

DBT is proven to be beneficial in treating eating disorders, addictions, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, and mood disorders, as well as borderline personality disorder (BPD). Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a pervasive problem of the individual's emotion regulation system, often resulting in problems in relationships, impulsive behaviors, suicidal behaviors, cognitive dysregulation, all or nothing thinking patterns, and severe difficulty with regulating emotions.

DBT is an evidence-based practice and scientifically proven to work. DBT combines cognitive and behavioral therapy, balancing acceptance with change. DBT explores emotions, cognitions, and behavior patterns. The term "dialectical" means a synthesis or integration of opposites. Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that was developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D.


Dialectical Behavior Therapy Is Based on Five Different Types of Dysregulation

Emotion Dysregulation - Emotional sensitivity to stimuli, emotional reactivity, slow return to baseline, consistent negative emotional states such as anger, depression, anxiety or guilt and difficulty regulating emotions or stabilizing moods on their own, mood swings, inability to understand emotions.

Cognitive Dysregulation - Black and white thinking patterns or all or nothing thinking, difficulty with conflict resolution or problem-solving, invalidating oneself or other people, and family conflict, difficulty focusing.

Behavioral Dysregulation - Impulsivity in different areas in life including self-harm, suicidal attempts, not attending school or work, avoiding, saying things without thinking, aggressive behaviors toward others, sexual behaviors, spending, and substance use.

Self-Dysregulation - Emptiness, identity confusion, dissociation, unawareness of emotions, thoughts, or behaviors, lack of direction.

Interpersonal Dysregulation - Fear of abandonment and efforts to avoid this, unstable or imbalanced relationships, interpersonal struggles, and troublemaking or keeping relationships, intense arguments, or not seeing other people's point of view.
