Therapy for Highly Sensitive People
My emotions are intense and can change several times per day, hour, or even minute.
When I say no, I feel guilty.
People say I'm too intense when I'm just trying to be assertive.
I don't even know who I am, what I prefer, or what I enjoy. I don't have my own identity.
Everyone around me thinks I'm fine, but I'm miserable on the inside.
Just one wrong look leaves me feeling judged, empty, and incompetent.
I feel empty, lonely, and like an imposter who is unworthy of love.
Feeling accepted (by myself and others) is a daily struggle.
I hold my emotions in until I feel like I could explode.
Some days, I wish I was no longer alive.
Do any of these sound familiar?
Hey there, you are not alone.
We are committed to helping you develop coping skills to survive
the emotional storms, regulate your mood, improve relationships,

struggle with navigating life. We can't wait to tell you more

I Want to Learn to
Manage My Emotions
I Want to Feel
I Want to Improve
Finding the right skills and a validating therapist to
walk with you as you build your 'life worth living'
is the way out of the emotional spirals.
Even the smallest trigger can stir up old beliefs that we are flawed, memories of failure, and intense shame. This leads us to act in ways that take us further from our ideal life.
It’s possible to feel better.
Imagine a life where you can...
tolerate intense emotions
change your emotions
deal with difficult people
be more present
What is Comprehensive DBT?
DBT Comprehensive goes well beyond the therapy room, helping you to apply coping skills in the moment.
This comprehensive program includes individual therapy, skills group, access to phone coaching, and therapist consultation.
When living with Borderline Personality Disorder or any features of emotion dysregulation, your life can feel like one constant rollercoaster ride. You can shift from suicidal to angry, then joyful within a very short amount of time. Rejection is a constant fear, yet your actions towards people make it seem like a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Most people who join the DBT Comprehensive Program are ready to seek help to stop seeing things in black and white, and to gain a better understanding of who they are as a person, and to learn an effective set of skills to live a happier life.
Clients who make progress in DBT often begin therapy with a tendency to look to others to make decisions due to a lack of trust in their own judgement. They are highly compassionate and often put the needs of others before their own. With DBT, they are able to recognize their genuine selves and gain direction in their own lives.
Perhaps these are the changes you are looking for? If so, it may be time to consider Comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy as a treatment option.
"All people, at any given moment,
are doing the best that they can."

Did We Mention the Plants Yet?
Nature has a calming effect on our minds and promotes mindfulness. DBT Ozarks specializes in combining DBT Therapy with Therapeutic Horticulture (that's right, plant therapy).
