If you have ever felt like...

  • you struggle with managing your emotions in everyday life

  • the intensity of the distress you experience is just too much to handle sometimes

  • your relationships are often strained with other people

  • you're interested in mindfulness and tools for mind-body healing, but the generic education on them just doesn't seem to click for you

  • you're lacking the support of others who have been through similar experiences

Then this is the DBT group for you!

Our goal is provide you with a safe space to address your physical, mental, AND emotional challenges of day-to-day life, all in a way that is specifically tailored to your experience and needs. Your group leader will guide you through developing a toolbox of skills to support yourself in everyday life. We also believe in the power of group support. You don't have to move through this healing journey feeling alone!


  • Learn mind-body skills every week, specifically chosen to help support your needs

  • Community support from others who are moving through similar experiences in their lives

  • A safe space to process your emotions, and personalized recommendations for YOUR life

  • Build self-awareness around your personal experience of emotions in your brain and body

  • Understand how emotions impact you physically, energetically, mentally, & emotionally

  • Practice evidence-based tools to help you regulate your nervous system and increase feelings of balance even during difficult times

And the best perk of all... supporting your mental health & physical health simultaneously!


How long does the group run for?

This is an 8-week closed group, meaning that we ask each member to commit to the group for 8 weeks. Showing up with the same people consistently is what creates the beautiful power of community support!


How can I join?

Click here to schedule your free 15-minute consultation call with one of the group facilitators, Mikayla Ruggieri or Sara Freeman. You will fill out a few application questions as you're booking the call. During the consultation call, you and Mikayla will discuss your goals for the group and explore next steps!

What is the cost?

Each 60-minute group session is $35. You can choose to pay per session, or save by paying $260 up front for all 8 group sessions. (Paying in full saves you $20!)

Where is it located?

Both groups are held via zoom and participants can join from anywhere in the state of Georgia.

What happens if I miss a group session?

Although we encourage you to attend as many group sessions as possible to get the most out of this group, we realize that life happens and sometimes you can't make every session! If you have to miss, your group leader will send you any applicable resources from the group session.

How many people are in the group?

This group will have up to 8 group members.

Do I need DBT experience to join?

Absolutely not! All of the group sessions will be beginner-friendly and taught with many options offered for coping skills. We will help you find the tools that work best for you!

Mikayla Ruggieri is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Georgia. She has earned her Masters degree in Social Work from Simmons University, and has completed additional advanced training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), EMDR, IFS, and more.

Mikayla specializes in working with trauma and PTSD, grief and loss, relationship issues, identity development, anxiety, burnout, and depression.


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of psychotherapy that is focused on helping people manage intense emotions. It is rooted in the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), while also including powerful techniques based in mindfulness and research on the mind-body connection.

In our DBT groups, we focus on 4 core topics:

1. mindfulness

2. distress tolerance

3. interpersonal effectiveness

4. emotion regulation

Your DBT-trained therapist will guide you in learning, practicing, and implementing new coping skills in all of these 4 core topics. As you work through the DBT model, you will gain the opportunity to increase your self-awareness in your mind and body, increase your emotional agility, and grow mental strength and self-confidence while supporting your unique goals!
