VIRTUAL Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Group for LGBTQIA+
Heal with Pride!
Our adult DBT skills group is here to help you learn important tools to manage your emotions, build better relationships, and create a more satisfying life.
If you’re someone who wants to work on themselves, is open to trying new things, and is willing to practice outside of group sessions, this is the group for you!
It is not uncommon for members of our group to face challenges like intense feelings, impulsive actions, difficult relationships, negative self-image, or feeling stuck in unhelpful habits.
It doesn’t matter if you’re new to therapy or have tried other treatments before – we provide a safe and understanding space where you can learn and grow with others who are going through similar experiences.
This specific group might be good for you if you you identify as Queer, and are loking to learn & build skills mastery with other LGBTQIA+ individuals.
SImilar to other DBT Groups, this is a good group if you have the following…
- Emotion regulation difficulties: Individuals struggling with overwhelming emotions, mood swings, or intense reactions to stressors may be seeking support and guidance on how to manage their emotions more effectively.
- Relationship challenges: People who have difficulty establishing and maintaining healthy relationships with others may be looking for strategies to improve their communication skills, build trust, and set boundaries.
- Impulsive behaviors: Individuals who engage in impulsive or risky behaviors, such as substance use, binge eating, self-harm, or reckless driving, may be seeking help to develop alternative coping mechanisms that do not lead to negative consequences.
- Negative self–image: People who struggle with low self-esteem, self-criticism, or self-doubt may be looking for ways to challenge their negative thoughts and beliefs and develop a more positive and accepting self-concept.
- Feeling stuck: Individuals who feel stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving may be seeking a supportive environment where they can learn new skills and perspectives to help them make positive changes in their lives.
Some people have a hard time controlling their emotions, dealing with other people, or doing things that might be dangerous. They may feel bad about themselves or stuck in a rut. DBT skills can help. In this group, you can learn how to feel better by practicing new skills with other people who are also trying to improve. You can learn how to handle your feelings, communicate better, and make good choices. It’s a safe place where you can talk about your problems and get support. Joining the group can help you feel happier and more in control of your life.
