Young Adult Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Choices Young Adult Accelerated DBT Program (12 weeks) for 18-26 year olds

Are you a young adult who feels as though supportive therapy is just not enough? Are you motivated to learn skills that will increase joy in your life? The Choices Psychotherapy young adult program may be for you.

This program is fast-paced with clients in mind who:

  • endorse being more emotionally sensitive
  • experience daily challenges in school or employment
  • experience struggles with familial relationships
  • experience intense emotions that are difficult to control
  • endorse having some behaviors that need to change

12-week accelerated program includes individual weekly appointments and one 2-hour skills training group with over the phone coaching available between sessions.

Build More Stability & Happiness

The general goals of DBT include improving relationships, decreasing anxiety and misery, and enhancing the quality of life or “build a life worth living.” DBT helps individuals find effective ways to manage problems. The group is both educational and interactive, and focuses on learning and developing skills over time.

Balance logic with feelings to improve coping skills and reduce ineffective behavior

Members learn to access “Wise Mind” instead of succumbing to intense emotions and acting in destructive ways. DBT is not a “quick fix” and should be approached with willingness and a non-judgmental stance. Members are often in different places regarding knowledge and application of skills; therefore, it is important to not engage in negative comparisons while in the program.

Rediscover your health and well-being. Make positive changes.

Lucas Lund shares, “My approach to therapy is one that encompasses meeting you where you are, working towards the life that you would like to live. I approach from a non-judgmental stance and an openness to the way in which you experience life. As a Korean-American (adoptee) it is a joy to work with adoptees, immigrants and other BIPOC individuals who are struggling with what or how they “fit” within society. I have been working within a Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) theoretically orientation for the past five years.” …read more about Lucas Lund, MS
