Savage Adult Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Savage Adult Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidence-based treatment created by Dr. Marsha Linehan. It was originally created for the treatment of borderline personality disorder – a disorder characterized by highly suicidal behaviors, self-harm, and intense, out-of-control emotions. DBT has now proven effective in treating a wide array of mental health disorders – personality disorders, chronic depression, and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and addictions.
DBT is a treatment designed for Adolescents and Adults who struggle to regulate their behaviors and emotions effectively. This can look like suicidal thinking, self-harm (cutting, etc.), addiction, difficulty with anger/rage, chronic depression and anxiety, eating disorders, intense shame, and unresolved trauma to name a few. Clients who would most benefit from DBT are those where “treatment as usual” (traditional psychotherapy) has not been effective and/or their behaviors and emotions cause severe impairment to their quality of life. DBT is an empirically supported treatment – meaning it has been studied at length in clinical trials and has repeatedly proven effective.

About Savage, MN
Savage is a suburban city 15 miles south-southwest of downtown Minneapolis in Scott County in the U.S. state of Minnesota. The city is on the south bank of the Minnesota River in a region commonly called South of the River, comprising the southern portion of Minneapolis-St. Paul. The population of Savage was 32,465 at the 2020 census. The landing point for Irish and Scottish immigrants in 1800, Savage has grown into a developing bedroom community, absorbing population growth from Burnsville, its larger neighbor to the east. Once a shipbuilding port for the U.S. Navy, Savage is now an industrial manufacturing job center in the southern metro. The city is still relatively undeveloped, with sections of the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge and Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve within its borders.
