Tools & Information to Help You to Be Your Best

Good Morning!

You are receiving this email because you are connected to the counseling practice of Joanna Bloss, LCPC, or have expressed interest in learning more about Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills.

About twice a month, I will be sending very brief, informative and (hopefully) helpful emails.

If you do not wish to receive these emails, no worries! Just email here with "unsubscribe" in the subject line and that will be the end of that.

If you would like to stay on the list -- do nothing! I'll just pop in every now and then with some news you can use!
