What is My Dialectical Life?

My Dialectical Life (or MDL) is a daily email list designed to help you learn more about practical ideas to help you improve your life. Each email is designed around one DBT skill. 

Are you a Therapist? Is this Therapy?

While I am an intensively-trained DBT therapist, MDL is not a substitute for therapy or treatment. 

When will I receive MDL?

MDL is delivered to the email address you provide at 5:00 am Central Standard Time 365 days of the year.

How much is MDL?

MDL is just $25 a month—less than $1 a day.

If you are outside the US, you can convert the investment to your local currency here.

Can I teach myself DBT?


The truth is that DBT is not available nor is it always affordable for everyone. A dedication to practicing the skills each day (even when you don't want to practice) may help you to create the life you've always wanted to have.


Who subscribes to My Dialectical Life?

You do not need to have a particular diagnosis in order to subscribe to My Dialectical Life. In fact, about 25% of subscribers consider themselves to be family members or friends of someone with a mental health diagnosis.

I believe that dialectical behavior therapy is for anyone who is helpful for anyone interested in improving their lives.

What's the BEST DBT Book to Buy?

I strongly recommend that all MDL subscribers purchase Marsha Linehan's DBT Skills Training Handouts and Worksheets.

Is my information private?

Yes. Any identifying information (name, email address, mailing address, etc.) is protected. I never sell names or addresses.
