Denver DBT and Psychotherapy is a group of licensed psychologists and psychotherapists dedicated to providing empirically validated treatment based on Dr. Marsha Linehan’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy model. We provide outpatient DBT-based skills training groups, mindfulness therapy groups and work in collaboration with our patients’ individual therapists. All groups meet for an hour and a half and are capped at eight members to ensure that participants receive individual attention.
Denver DBT and Psychotherapy was established by Nikki Kraslin, Psy.D. Dr. Kraslin is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been offering DBT-based skills training groups and supervising clinicians in DBT since 2004. Our staff consists of doctoral level clinicians who work as a team to offer clients multi-systemic support. Denver DBT offers a variety of group programs for adults as well as individual, couples and family therapy for both adolescents and adults.
While DBT was originally designed to treat those diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, it is now being used with a wide range of individuals. Participants often have difficulties recognizing and/or regulating their emotions and may struggle with impulsivity. Denver DBT’s groups are designed to help people function better in their daily lives.
