Radically Open DBT Tampa is an outpatient private practice specializing in a NEW, ground-breaking treatment for over-controlled coping related to strong desires to control oneself, others or the environment. Having an over-controlled temperament is associated with problematic perfectionism, chronic loneliness, refractory depression and anxiety, disordered eating, obsessive, compulsive and avoidant personality features.  Individuals who struggle with problematic over-control may have a strong sense of right vs wrong, have difficulty adjusting to changes, find it hard to maintain close relationships, shutdown or act out when things don’t go as they want or expect.

RO DBT is founded on over 20 years of research by Dr. Thomas Lynch.  It uses the brain-body connection to induce relaxation states, mindfulness to increase self-awareness and exploration, and behavioral skills to try new things, make valued-based decisions and  meaningful relationships. RO DBT is life changing. It promotes openness, flexibility and connection.  RO DBT has changed the way we practice psychotherapy, and offered many clients a life worth sharing.
