Adult DBT Skills Group

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Group is for anyone struggling to regulate their emotions and decrease ineffective behaviors. In DBT four sets of skills are taught: mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Combined, these skills give you the tools to be more effective in your life and to build a life worth living. 

DBT Program at Green Couch Counseling:

At Green Couch Counseling we rotate through skill sets in 6 week modules. We offer a1.5 hour mindfulness skills training between each 6 week module. We ask all DBT members to join us at least once for the mindfulness group session. 


Skills Training Groups 

Each module below runs 6 weeks and cycles through the three skill topics

1) Emotion Regulation: You will learn skills that change your relationship with your emotions. Emotion regulations skills decrease emotional suffering and  teach what emotions do for you.

2) Distress Tolerance: These are not for everyday use, but are to use when in crisis, when having an urge to self harm, or to prevent a situation from becoming worse or creating new problems. 

3) Interpersonal effectiveness: These skills allow you to function more effectively in relationships and improve your communication.

DBT group costs $60/ session. We ask that you commit to all 6 groups when joining a skills group. We accept BCBS, Cigna and United Healthcare plans.  

We currently have three group session times to choose from:


Monday Evenings 5:00PM-6:30PM

Wednesday Evenings 5:00PM-6:30PM 

Currently due to Covid-19 all groups are being conducted via video telehealth
