Denver DBT and Psychotherapy

COVID-19 Update

In light of current public health recommendations for slowing the spread of COVID-19, all of Denver DBT’s individual and group therapy sessions will be held virtually on Zoom. We are still accepting new clients for both individual and group sessions and would be happy to talk to you further about what we offer, our availability, as well as answer any questions pertaining to our switch from in-person sessions to telehealth.

One specific way Denver DBT would like to offer help to you during this challenging time is by running on-going support groups. These groups would be a place to process thoughts and feelings related to your current experiences with COVID-19 and the societal and personal changes that many are struggling with. The groups also create a way of connecting with one another virtually during a time of social distancing and possible isolation. We will be offering these groups on a donation basis ($20 suggested donation). You do not need to be a current client in our practice in order to attend these groups but we do require members to be in individual therapy. If you don’t have an individual therapist, we are happy to speak with you about your treatment needs and potentially get you situated with a member of our team. Please reach out via our contact page or main number if you would like to get further information or join a group. We hope that all of you stay safe and healthy and we invite you to reach out during this unprecedented time of uncertainty and change.

About Us

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.
