Individual DBT Outpatient Therapy Sessions
Appointments Available Monday-Thursday, 4:00-8:00 PM

One-on-one psychotherapy with a DBT therapist. Weekly 50-minute sessions. Individual sessions focus on helping you apply DBT skills to specific goals and situations in your life. The overall goal of DBT is to help clients create a "life worth living." Specifically, DBT coaching is designed to help clients move from being out of control to being in control of behavior, from being emotionally shut down to experiencing emotions fully, from being unable to build an ordinary life to being able to solve ordinary life problems, and from feeling incomplete to feeling complete and connected to others and the community.

DBT Skills Groups
Monday and Thursday, afternoon and evening groups available
Female Only* Skills Group - Tuesday

Small groups focused on learning and practicing DBT skills in weekly 90 minute sessions.

Shelley's Journey

Shelley's Story

"For the first time in my 25+ years of living with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder traits, I began to learn practical coping skills for handling extreme sensitivity, mood swings, and how to survive – a word used often in DBT – emotionally difficult or painful circumstances and events without hurting myself or those around me."
