If you feel like you or your loved one is struggling to regulate emotions or is acting impulsively, you are not alone. We know that genetics and environmental factors interface to increase certain individual's sensitivity to emotional cues. DBT is often the ideal treatment protocol when the primary concerns is high levels of anger, impulsive behaviors, self-harm, or suicidal ideation. DBT provides a structured skills-based platform for modulating emotions and improving attentional control. At the Cincinnati Anxiety Center you will find that we provide the full continuum of DBT services including skills groups, individual psychotherapy, ongoing phone consultation, family systems support, and medication management. As you or your loved one participates in the program you will learn to engage life more fully, tolerate distress skillfully, manage your emotions, and improve your understanding for relational dynamics. We have seen the use of DBT transform the lives of our clinicians and patients alike. That is why clinicians at our center are expected to live it before they can teach it.
