Denver DBT and Psychotherapy
Denver DBT and Psychotherapy is a group of licensed clinical 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, adolescent DBT groups, as well as individual, couples and family therapy for both adolescents and adults.
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 and insight-oriented psychotherapy since 2004. Our staff consists of doctoral level clinicians who work as a team to offer clients multi-systemic support. We collaborate with our clients’ individual therapists and work to create individual and group therapy environments that are both supportive and challenging.
While DBT was originally designed to treat those diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, it is now being used to help individuals struggling with a wide range of presenting complaints. Depression, anxiety, ADHD, substance abuse, irritability and relationship problems are some common struggles for clients. Additionally, most participants have difficulties recognizing and/or regulating their emotions, want to improve their relationships and may struggle with impulsivity. Denver DBT’s groups meet for an hour and a half and are capped at eight members to ensure that participants receive individual attention. Our model of therapy is designed to help people function better in their daily lives and work towards building a life that is aligned with clients’ deepest values.
