I think that DBT can work wonders! I can remember the day clearly when that proverbial light bulb went off in my head when I realized that I can actually have more control over my feelings by my mind than I ever knew! It's liberating! We (as in everyone) put ourselves through so much grief emotionally that if we only had the tools to learn to do otherwise, we wouldn't be in reaction mode so much of the time.

Though I never knew what theory of therapy my tdoc was using (because it doesn't matter to me), but, among other theories, she consistently helped me with DBT over the years. It took a while for me to get it but when I did, it changed my life forever!
