  • Psychological Testing
  • Behavioral Modification

Dialectical Behavior Training

This form of therapeutic treatment was originally developed as an alternative to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for those who are at high risk of becoming suicidal. Since then, DBT has become a common form of therapy used to treat several conditions, including depression.


The main goal of DBT is to help clients develop effective coping skills and reduce unhelpful behavior by improving relationships, reducing anxiety and feelings of depression and boosting the client’s quality of life. The four components of DBT include:

  • Core mindfulness to help clients identify issues and work toward resolving them
  • Interpersonal effectiveness to help clients improve their interpersonal relationships
  • Emotional regulation to help clients manage emotions better
  • Distress tolerance to help clients build good coping skills


Choices Psychotherapy in Minnetonka is among the few therapy practices in Minnesota that is certified in DBT. We offer DBT for adults in a combination of group and individual settings. Day and evening sessions are available.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Cognitive behavior therapy has been used for decades to treat a wide range of psychological issues, including depression, eating disorders, addiction and personality disorders. CBT involves the evaluation of thoughts, feelings and behaviors and the relationship between them. By looking for and identifying negative behaviors, CBT lets those with mental health issues modify thinking patterns to improve coping.


You should expect our Minnetonka CBT therapsits to be problem-focused and goal-driven. Here are some of the mental health issues helped at Choices Psychotherapy.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Personality disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse
  • Mood disorders
  • Sleeping disorders

Regardless of which mental issues you are addressing, CBT‘s main goal is helping clients recognize negative feelings and behaviors and replace them with positive ones. Rather than focusing on interpersonal relationships or problematic situations in the client’s life, the CBT approach concentrates on analyzing emotions and adopting effective ways to handle negative ones in order to treat psychological issues. CBT therapists will more often than not assign “homework” for clients. This may include writing down negative or positive thoughts throughout the day to determine which negative thoughts lead to self-destructive actions.


At Choices, clients who choose CBT therapy work closely with a therapist who will help them recognize harmful thought patterns causing harmful consequences and get them on positive life path
