I can show you how DBT can effectively treat depressive disorders.
For many years, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has been studied extensively for its potential to treat a variety of different mental health disorders and diagnoses. Because DBT was originally developed with an emotion regulation focus, it’s no surprise that it can be an effective method for managing and treating depression.
Most depressive disorders are characterized by the presence of an irritable, sad, or empty mood; difficulties thinking, concentrating, and remembering; lack of desire to participate in once-enjoyed activities; and physical symptoms, like headaches or chronic pain. While depression can be anywhere from mild to debilitating, it can harm anyone’s quality of life.
Because depressive disorders result in mood irregularities and interfere with normal daily functioning, DBT can help regulate mood while also modifying ineffective behaviors. The main purpose of DBT for depression is to help patients experience less intense and frequent symptoms that prevent them from living a productive, fulfilled life.
In my many years of experience as a therapist, teacher, and facilitator in California, I’ve seen DBT for depression garner amazing results for patients in all circumstances. If you want to effectively implement DBT for depression into your sessions and help your clients who are struggling with emotional dysregulation, I can give you the toolkit and techniques needed to make this happen.
I offer clinician training and CEU courses, and I also do individual therapy, helping those with depression and other mental health conditions who could benefit from DBT. Reach out to me, Suzette Bray LMFT, today to learn more about how I help people keep strong emotions from taking over.
I offer DBT for depression to clients in Studio City, Burbank, Brentwood, Los Feliz, and the rest of California, as well as Arizona and Florida.
