We all are suffering from our innate limitation as human beings.

The only people who are able to confront this inescapable fact and lessen our pain and suffering is ourselves.

Only we could balance our minds.

DBT is the truthful psychotherapy that helps us balance our minds even within the storm of pain and suffering.
