Why DBT: DBT appeals to me because I love the comprehensive aspects. It is excellent for

me to feel connected to therapy, and DBT specifically.

“But things work out, you know? Even if it doesn’t feel okay for a long time, or even if it
feels like things will never be okay again, everything works out in the end.”
