Discover personalized practices to transform BPD

Our licensed psychotherapists provide Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)-informed services to address symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). At Davenport Creative Arts Therapy, we are all DBT-informed providers and have completed at least 28-hours of intensive in-person DBT training. Each therapist receives ongoing DBT-Informed mentoring within the practice from Emily Davenport who has completed 175 hours of intensive DBT training under Dr. Shari Manning, PhD (former President/CEO of Behavioral Tech).

We integrate DBT Skills with Art Therapy to help you create a life worth living. In addition to individual skills training, we will teach you compassion-focused cognitive modification techniques and use creative modalities to help you reduce emotional vulnerability, increase distress tolerance, resilience and self-worth.

*We are not part of an adherent DBT program as we do not provide standardized phone coaching, skills groups nor are we part of an adherent consultation team at this time.


"I’ve been with Emily for years and I can’t begin to thank her enough. She has helped me work through a significant amount of past trauma. I’ve seen many therapists in the past, and none were ever truly effective in making me feel like I had the potential to work past my pain. Through her dedicated time and engagement, I have come leaps and bounds. I’m excited to see where we go from here, because I know with her help, I will continue to achieve the betterment I have been seeking."
