Feedback From Our Clients:

“If you have ever wondered if you’ve truly made a difference in the world, wonder no more.  You have saved my life.  Today, I leave this office enlightened and empowered.  My view of myself and of the world forever changed. Because I now think dialectically rather than in absolutes, I have begun the journey of understanding, acceptance and forgiveness.” SE-Macomb, MI

“We are very thankful for DBT. It has literally saved our daughter and improved our family’s quality of life. It has improved other facets of our lives as well. Our daughter has learned to cope in healthy ways, and is on a path to a satisfying life.” ME-Gross Pointe Farms, MI

“DBT  changed our lives for the better.  I thought you might like to hear that we are doing good.  We have been able to stay on top of any issues and most are just normal teenage things.  My daughter has good plans and is working toward them.  We are in a good place and I am sure it is due to the skills that we learned in the program.  Thanks again for all that you did for us. ” DP-Wyandotte, MI

“DBT has been so helpful to me. I practice often and have seen such great results. It is amazing how you have the power to change thinking patterns that you have had for years.” KL- Beverly Hills, MI

“People respond better to you when you use the skills. I love interpersonal effectiveness. I focus on my relationships more and have created better relationships with people close to me.” PM- Ann Arbor, MI

“I love the diary cards that I use with my individual therapist. They are so helpful to notice patterns. Mindfulness has helped me stay present with my recovery to observe more and be aware of what is happening within me without reacting.” HT- Birmingham, MI

“I never thought things would change in my life until I began DBT. I practice my skills all the time which I know is one of the reasons it works. My therapist has been so helpful and the DBT team of skills training leaders are so helpful at explaining how to apply the skills that are taught in skills class.” RT-Farmington Hills, MI

“I really find the skills groups helpful and my family is also participating in the program to learn the skills which has been so helpful. My relationship with my family has started to get better and we have began to build trust again. I don’t feel like I am on eggshells all the time.” MP-Royal Oak, MI

“I was so passive-aggressive when I started the program. I have learned how to be assertive and not let pain build up. I love distress tolerance and am working on acceptance. It has helped me through my divorce and how to cope with situations as they are without trying to change other people.” RB-Troy, MI

“I started DBT last February. After a passive suicide attempt (my second or third,) I signed a promise to my family that I would quit drinking, clear my mind and adhere-to and commit to the program. Once a week, I meet with my therapist one-and-one and once a week, I meet with a skills-group of other people in DBT (all kinds of people in this place; professionals, young, old – you name it) to learn specific skills designed to give us the tools we’ve never had or forgot we had. These are the human and life skills that we develop as we grow and then they are lost; they fall out of practice or go silent in the context of abusive relationships, unhealthy boundaries and family dynamics, conservative communities, and the list goes on and on.  You learn to trust yourself, understand and accept your emotions and develop vital lifeskills to build your emotional tool kit. It’s best described as learning to live with “the lights on” and gives you the time and space to work on specific skills in 4 modules.  At the end of the day, DBT has given me the skills to help build a life worth living. It’s something you can integrate into your daily routine as I have. I was able to dig deep and dive deep into this program. It has re-wired my brain so that I’m finally at a place where I know I’m going to be okay. DBT has saved me and has been the only thing that has worked for me.” CG-Oakland County, MI
