Adult DBT Skills Group

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group is for anyone struggling to regulate their emotions and who is wanting to 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 DBT skill sets in 6 week modules. Mindfulness skills are sprinkled into each module. 


Skills Training Groups 

Each module below runs 6 weeks and cycles through 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 1 module or 6 weeks when joining a skills group. We accept BCBS, Cigna, Friday Health, Aetna, Medicare and United Healthcare/UMR plans.
