Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. This therapy model supports individuals with ADHD, healing from trauma, and coping with grief and loss.
CBT is a type of therapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. Together you will focus on changing automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. Through CBT, these thoughts are identified, challenged, and replaced with more objective, realistic thoughts. This therapy supports ADHD, trauma, and grief.
Receiving an ADHD diagnosis for yourself or your loved one can be both relieving and overwhelming. Finding the right support for your family system and for yourself will play a critical role in creating calm in your world. While ADHD is a chronic lifelong condition, it is treatable, manageable, and conquerable. The best decision you can make for yourself and your loved ones is to seek support to learn the skills and address the fears associated with impaired functioning due to ADHD.
The finality of the end of a life can leave you looking for answers, hoping for some kind of relief from the hole left in your world. But relationships don’t end with death, they are only transformed. As painful as it can be to hear right now, it is true that you will someday be okay again. In grief counseling you won’t be asked to be “over it” on any timeline other than you own. You will receive gentle support, guidance, and a reminder that you are not alone in this.
Transgenerational trauma can have significant impacts on individuals and family systems. It can be hard to see the ways we pass the habits and behaviors of our parents and family systems onto our own children. Fortunately, trauma survivors are highly resilient people, and your strength and resilience is also something you can pass on to your children.
