What if you could FEEL  something without being OVERTAKEN by it?

Online DBT skills
for high anxiety & intense emotions

What if you could make the emotional intensity stop?

The torment on Sunday nights.

The second-guessing about basic conversations and decisions.

The chronic worry about stuff other people seem to breeze past.

The tightening knots in your stomach when you’re feeling uncertain about what faces you next.

You simply want to experience a day without the overwhelming feelings, the lack of control inside.

You've tried so hard, but you can’t seem to turn off your brain. You can't stop the powerful emotions.

 

Everyone else seems so normal. But not you.

You wake up each day bracing for the worst.


Coping with it just feels like whack-a-mole.

Sure, you coached yourself through all that worry you'd said the “wrong” thing to your friend…

…but then nausea pops back up about that looming presentation at work…

…and then of course your car is making a funny noise and you can’t stop ruminating about the ginormous bill you'll owe the mechanic…

...and you have a nagging suspicion that you are a disappointment to everyone around you...

You watch as your anxiety jumps from topic to topic.

 

Powerful feelings keep escaping your grip, leaving you feeling helpless to stop them.

So you’ve listened to the podcasts, read the books, saved the memes. 

 

Maybe you even tried to berate yourself into feeling less anxious and less of a "mess."

 

Maybe you’ve even tried therapy. You might even be in therapy right now but it’s not quite giving you the tools you need to actually feel relief in daily life.

I’ve known how impossible it seems to feel any different.

The truth is…
relief is absolutely within your grasp.

 

You just need some new knowledge, some new skills, and some practice handling things differently. 

I know personally that it’s possible to have a life where anxiety and intense emotions don’t get to be in charge. I’ve lived what you are living.

 

I know what it's like to:

  • toss and turn at night unable to make my brain stop.

  • feel the rush of heat on my skin, the dry mouth, and the foggy brain when the eyeballs turn to me and it’s my turn to talk. 

  • put off making decisions because I couldn’t bear to disappoint someone.

  • double-check EVERYthing because I’m so freaked out that someone might be upset with me.

  • ask for repeated reassurance that the relationship is okay

  • avoid social things, fearing I wouldn’t be able to handle the intense discomfort inside me.

  • use alcohol to feel more socially capable.

But now...these burdens don't get to plague me anymore.

 

When powerful emotions show up, I know just what to do.

What if your daily life felt different? What if you felt in control?

 

Imagine what emotional ease could look like....

You can...

...be more confident to face uncertain things.

...stop feeling like you are failing

...stop feeling that you are a failure. 

 

You can:

...get sleep without anxiety robbing from you.

...turn off that restless feeling in your body. 

...feel more ownership over your everyday experience.

You can: 

...enjoy time around people.

...feel less worried what people are really thinking of you.

...actually feel relief.

 

You can fear life less.


You can even have hopefulness & optimism instead of dread.

 

You just need the right tools and the right guide!

I am very grateful for this course, and I would highly recommend it to someone who is feeling anxious or is interested in emotions.

This course was the one thing that really moved the needle for me in my journey to heal myself. The material was so expertly taught and it had lasting impact.

It was the perfect balance of providing a solid understanding of our emotions and practical actions we can take to better regulate them. 

What exactly is DBT? And how will it help me?

 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a unique therapeutic model created by Dr. Marsha Linehan in the late 1980s to help those with chronically intense emotions.

DBT focuses on learning very specific skills to give you new methods for creating a life you actually want to be living.

 

By understanding and managing your thoughts, emotions, behaviors and urges better, you are able to finally know what to do differently in your life on a daily basis.

  • 8 live class sessions, 90 minutes each

  • the full curriculum of the Emotion Regulation section of original DBT

  • 1 class on Mindfulness tools to increase self-awareness

  • elements of neuroscience and nervous system functioning

  • techniques from other research-proven methods like Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).


Your emotions and anxiety are powerful...so we need a powerful approach.

I love the way you give instruction on a technique and immediately pair it with a real world example, that’s so helpful.
