Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Specialists

Have you been diagnosed as a “highly sensitive person,” or with severe emotional regulation difficulties, or with “Borderline Personality Disorder”? We are not specialists in DBT, the most effective treatment shown by research evidence to help. But we want you to know about these highly trained specialists who provide expert, evidence-based treatment in DBT.

“All I know is that I've wasted all these years looking for something, a sort of trophy I'd get only if I really, really did enough to deserve it. But I don't want it anymore, I want something else now, something warm and sheltering, something I can turn to, regardless of what I do, regardless of who I become. Something that will just be there, always, like tomorrow's sky. That's what I want now, and I think it's what you should want too. But it will be too late soon. We'll become too set to change. If we don't take our chance now.”

—Kazuo Ishiguro, When We Were Orphans
