Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is one of the therapy modalities Dr. Hauke uses to help her clients.
DBT has been shown to be the treatment of choice for clients who struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder and those who need help managing their emotions and controlling their anger and impulsiveness.
Dr. Hauke can help you develop coping skills and specific behavioral techniques to help you overcome your mental health challenges.
Learn validation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and radical acceptance with DBT
In therapy, you will learn tools to help control your emotions. DBT works to establish a balance between change and acceptance, enabling you to validate your thoughts and emotions without acting upon them. Dr. Hauke will encourage you to use your “wise mind” to make better choices.
Therapy may include other techniques, based on your needs.
Therapy may include use of mindfulness techniques such as deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation. Mindfulness can help you accept distressing thoughts without criticizing yourself and better tolerate self-destructive urges.
You may be asked to track your progress with diary cards or a journal to record symptoms and successes, such as the proper use of coping skills.
The benefits of dialectical behavior therapy for BPD
Dialectical Behavior Therapy often helps individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). DBT can also help most clients who struggle with emotional dysregulation, severe depression, and occasional suicidal thoughts.
Many clients who undergo DBT experience a significant reduction and management of symptoms that can help them to live more meaningful and productive lives. Many clients report less interpersonal conflict and improved employment and academic functioning.
