It's Complicated

Find a therapist practicing DBT: Dialectical Behavior Therapy

The theory behind the approach is that some people are prone to react in a more intense way toward certain emotional situations, primarily those found in close relationships. DBT theory suggests that some people’s arousal levels in such situations can increase far more quickly than the average person’s, and take a significant amount of time to return to baseline arousal levels.

DBT is formed to help people increase their emotional and cognitive regulation by learning about the triggers that lead to reactive states and helping to assess which coping skills to apply in the sequence of events to help avoid undesired reactions.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.
