DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (DBT)
At Ward & Associates, we specialize in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), an evidence-based therapy that combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with mindfulness practices to help individuals manage emotions and improve interpersonal relationships.
WHAT IS DBT?
DBT is a structured therapy approach initially developed to treat Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). It focuses on building skills in emotion regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
HOW DOES DBT WORK?
Our therapists help individuals identify and change negative thought patterns, manage intense emotions, and develop effective coping strategies for navigating challenging situations.

Borderline Personality Disorder
Substance Use Disorders
