Dial Down Anxiety with DBT

Online DBT skills
for high anxiety & intense emotions

What if you could make the emotional intensity stop?


What if you could feel a thing without being overtaken by it?

 

You simply want to experience a day without the overwhelm, the lack of control, the dread.

You've really tried, but you can’t seem to turn off your brain. You can't stop the feelings.

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.

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 about saying the “wrong” thing to your friend last week…

…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.

 

I know personally that it’s possible to have a life where anxiety and intense emotions don’t have to be (or get to be) in charge. And you can too.

I’ve lived what you are living. I’ve tossed and turned at night unable to make my brain stop. I’ve felt 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.

I’ve put off making decisions because I couldn’t bear to disappoint someone. I’ve done the double-checking and looking for reassurance because I’m so freaked out that someone might be upset with me.

I’ve avoided get-togethers out of fear I just couldn’t handle the intense discomfort inside me. I’ve used 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 it can look like....You can fear life less. You can be more confident to face uncertain things. You can stop feeling like you are failing or that you are a failure. 

 

You can get sleep without anxiety robbing from you. You can turn off that restless feeling in your body. You can feel more ownership over your everyday experience.

You can enjoy time around people without feeling so unsure of how you measure up and what they are really thinking of you. You can feel relief.

You can even have hopefulness & optimism instead of dread. You just need the right tools and the right guide!

But how can you get there? Let me be your guide.

 

Join me in Dial Down Anxiety with DBT, an online course designed for adults with overwhelming anxiety and strong emotions who want proven methods for lasting relief.

I’ve enhanced the research-backed DBT Emotion Regulation skills to specifically address anxiety and equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need.

By the end of your journey in Dial Down Anxiety with DBT, you will have a wealth of tools and daily strategies to finally untangle yourself from debilitating anxiety and overpowering emotions.

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 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.

Dial Down Anxiety with DBT includes:

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

    - 1 week of body regulation tools from the Distress Tolerance section

    - 1 week of tools from the Mindfulness section

    - elements of neuroscience and physiological functioning

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

This robust online DBT course packs years of content and tools into 8 actionable weeks. 

By the end of this course, you will be…

Testimonials


What previous Dial Down Anxiety with DBT course members are saying…

I really appreciated getting to learn more about the brain and how my emotions work. I wished I could have had multiple class sessions on each topic! 

The information presented was wonderful…I enjoyed the practice assignments. 

I truly enjoyed the course! The thoughtful effort you put into the classes and feedback was noticed and greatly appreciated.

I really felt like I got a lot out of the course and will continue to use the skills. It’s honestly felt life changing in how I view, understand and handle emotions.

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

This is a good course…I have been sharing what I’ve learned with my wife and daughter. I’ve already benefited from the things learned.
