Dialectical Behavior Therapy Group

Group Therapy for Adolescents & Teens

    Our program is discontinued until further notice. We feel that our DBT program is most effective in person. We do not have a date to restart and are not keeping a waitlist at this time. Feel free to check back in late June/July 2020 for a waitlist for fall 2020; if it is safe to resume in person services.

  • DBT (Full Protocol) Group for Adolescents & Teens that self-harm, have chronic suicidal thoughts, and/or frequent mood and behavior changes. We designed this program for teens that describe their emotions as “out of control” or “all over the place.”
  • In approximately 18-24 weeks, each participant will be provided with weekly individual therapy, group therapy, and optional parent/caregiver sessions with your assigned provider.
  • Learn mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness broken in to four modules. Each skill learned builds on the rest for an abundant list of options to use in periods of acute or even mild stress, anxiety, or mood changes.
  • Our DBT program is modeled after and using material from the DBT Skills Manual by Marsha Linehan, PhD, ABPP from the University of Washington.
  • This program is not a crisis program, is not partial hospitalizaiton, and is not designed to replace inpatient hospitalization if your child is a risk of harm to themselves or others.
  • Space will be limited, please call to scheduled your intake appointment as soon as possible. Wait list will be available when space is full. We also keep a waitlist and run one group at a time.
