Who We See
At the DBT Center we see individuals with various diagnoses and concerns. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, or gender issues, we can help. In the first few sessions, you and your therapist will look at your concerns to see what type of therapy is best for you. We offer many different types of therapy in addition to dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
Adult Intensive Outpatient Programs
The DBT Center offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) consisting of nine hours of therapy per week. Regular weekly DBT sessions are recommended (based on the research on DBT effectiveness) for one year. Often regular weekly DBT sessions with a skills group are indicated rather than the IOP.
Learning to effectively manage emotions is one of life's most important skills. Managing emotions means you learn to not act impulsively on what you feel and to not use destructive actions to feel better, like yelling, hitting, using drugs, or not doing school work.
Adult Regular Outpatient Programs
At the DBT Center, you and your therapist will carefully consider the concerns and goals that you have and what type of therapy and the frequency of therapy that is most likely to be effective for you. We offer outpatient therapy for adults who have various needs including young adults, couples, families and the elderly.
Pre-Teen & Teen Services
At the DBT Center we offer different types of therapy for pre-teens and teens, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), mindfulness and exposure therapy. If a pre-teen is seen in DBT, all the components of DBT are provided: Skills group, individual therapy, and coaching. All therapists providing DBT participate on a consultation team.
