“I have been getting very positive feedback from my parents about the changes they are seeing in me and its thanks to DBT and you guys…I am telling you that your classes make all the difference. They give clarity, allow me to relate, have a laugh and inspire me to keep going. Thank you.”
“I’ve learned so many things that are making it easier for me to deal with day to day life, which in turn is allowing more of my focus to be on healing and on learning how to love myself and not letting my past experiences take away from my present life and the beautiful future I will create for myself.”
“For me DBT Path is more than a great place to learn DBT skills. It is the place where I found I could be more than a diagnosis, where I found I could be a compassionate and caring person. DBT Path not only taught me skills but taught me I could thrive and not just survive.”
“DBT and your course (and really your loving energy that has created so much light in my life and in this world) have shifted my life in a way I never could have imagined possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I will always consider myself a lifelong student of DBT!”
