Are you struggling to deal with the stress of life

Life can be challenging — making us feel off-balanced, unsure how to handle certain situations or feelings, or struggling to cope.

You try to handle the difficulties you face, but you may end up feeling stuck or like nothing you do works. It can become hard to judge when you’re being too hard on yourself, what can change, or how to do it.

You may find yourself trying to cope with the stress of your life by avoiding responsibilities, yelling at others, withdrawing, or dealing with emotions through food, alcohol, or other substances.

Over time, you may:

  • Struggle with negative self-talk
  • Feel like no one understands you or how you feel
  • Struggle with intense emotions like anger, sadness, or anxiety
  • Have developed ineffective (and sometimes unhealthy) coping strategies that are no longer serving you
  • Struggle with setting or maintaining healthy interpersonal boundaries

You may want to feel numb or avoid emotions, but it’s okay to feel.

And you can learn healthy coping strategies and techniques so you can effectively manage intense emotions, work through past difficulties, and create the life you want.

More About My Online Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Austin, Texas

When is Dialectical Behavior Therapy needed?

DBT may be needed when you are looking for ways to better cope with life, thoughts, or emotions. Often, current coping strategies are not working and may be causing other problems or difficulties in your life. 

For example, some people may try to cope by:

  • Drinking or using substances to deal with difficult emotions or stress
  • Yelling
  • Emotionally eating
  • Withdrawing
  • Using self-harm strategies, like picking, bruising, or cutting their skin

If your emotions, stress, or life challenges are impacting your daily life and functioning, it’s important to speak with a healthcare professional. They may recommend DBT or other counseling or therapy as part of an overall treatment plan.

How much does Dialectical Behavior Therapy cost?
The cost may be different for online sessions. My rates are $130 for the first initial intake assessment and then $120 for each individual therapy follow-up session.

The cost of DBT can vary depending on a number of factors, including where you live, the type of therapy or counseling being provided, and whether you have insurance coverage.

How long does the Dialectical Behavior Therapy process take?
The length of time that Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) takes varies depending on the individual and their specific needs.
