Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is one of the many therapeutic techniques that Dr. Hauke uses to help her clients.
Research shows that DBT is the treatment of choice for those who struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) as well as for anyone who struggles to manage their emotions or control their anger and impulsiveness.
Learn how to calm yourself quicker, stop engaging in self-destructive behaviors, find better ways to cope with upsetting situations, and get along better with others!
DBT works to establish a balance between change and acceptance, empowering you to accept your thoughts and emotions without necessarily judging or acting upon them.
