Career change, even when planned for, is often a stressful life transition.  Our staff can help those in the midst of employment change explore their talents, experiences and desires to gain a “life worth living” perspective and direction toward securing a fulfilling career.

In addition to assisting employers and employees troubleshoot challenging issues related to workplace policy compliance, our staff will work with clients to address mental health issues with the goal of increasing emotional stability, and interpersonal effectiveness.  Clients will have the opportunity to improve their life satisfaction as well as their work productivity.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Are you or someone you love engaging in self-harm, struggling with self-esteem, are sensitive to the judgments of others, struggle with impulsive behaviors, have difficulty controlling anger, and seem to be at odds with most every one around you? Do you experience suicidal thought? DBT can help you gain control and balance and help you live the life you want to live.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that teaches new skills in Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Walking the Middle Path.

DBT was developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD to originally treat people with intense emotional swings, chaotic interpersonal relationships, impulsiveness, and suicidal / self-harm behaviors. It is based on the biosocial theory that problems develop from an interaction between biological factors and environmental factors and on the idea that opposites can coexist and be synthesized. The ultimate goal is to live a life worth living. The DBT therapist balances empathy and warm acceptance with a focus on changing problem behaviors.

The DBT program consists of weekly individual sessions with between-session phone coaching and a weekly skills training class. DBT clinicians attend a weekly DBT consultation team meeting to coordinate your care.
​DBT is backed by significant research that shows it is an effective therapy with techniques that work. DBT has expanded and is now shown to be effective for concerns other than those listed above.
