What is DBT?
Why "Wise Mind" for our name?
Dialectical behavior therapy, DBT for short, is a type of therapy that is derived from cognitive-behavioral therapy. Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, cope healthily with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships with others.
It was originally intended for people with borderline personality disorder (BPD) but has since been adapted for other conditions where the patient exhibits self-destructive behavior, such as eating disorders and substance abuse. It is also sometimes used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder.
We chose this name because it embodies the core principles of DBT, which is central to our practice. "Wise Mind" is a concept that encourages us to balance our emotional and rational minds, finding a middle ground that allows us to make decisions that are both thoughtful and compassionate.
As a DBT-oriented practice, we want to help you tap into your "wise mind," finding balance and making decisions that serve your long-term well-being. We believe that life is full of grey areas, and by adopting a "wise mind" perspective, you can navigate those grey areas with more clarity and peace of mind
