    i love these tips, and will start practicing!

    i wanted to ask you about DBT, and if that is something worth investing in? also, how necessary is it to go to “group dbt” versus doing the manual on your own? just trying to budget, and the group in my area is 35$ each week.

    thank you so much, Aubry, for speaking out and teaching us all this priceless lesson in how to be free!

      Thanks for the question because it’s a great one! In my opinion, it comes down to how well you can hold yourself accountable. Because I had already gone through lots of therapy when I was introduced to DBT by a new counselor, I just got the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook and treated myself like a project. But I’m also very self-aware and can challenge myself when I’m making excuses. Wasn’t always that way, though. I think working with a therapist is fantastic if it’s a new process, or the group if it is well run (all are accountable, empathetic, and kind while helping you grow). However, there’s no universal law that says you can’t try it on your own as a sort of study project!

      Happy healing,
      Aubrey
