DBT Skills Groups

Our DBT skills groups are all exclusively virtual so participants can maintain their privacy within our community. At the same time, all participants join our groups because they are working on themselves and remain respectful of other group members.

Our groups are open to anyone in current individual therapy, whether or not their individual therapist is doing DBT with them, so long as the therapist agrees that the group would be beneficial and is open to collaborating with us, and our team feels group only is an appropriate treatment option. Give us a call to find out more!

I’d like to join your next DBT skills group - how do I do that?

You give us a call to schedule an intake prior to starting a DBT group. That’s a 90-minute session for us to get to know you and decide with you what your goals are and whether this is an appropriate addition to your current treatment.

We speak to your current therapist and decide together with our team about taking you for group only, or whether we’re only comfortable having you for full DBT (which would include group, individual therapy, and phone coaching).

Once we are in agreement that you are a fit for our group and you are ready to join, you will have a 30 minute orientation session with one of our clinicians. We will tell you all you need to know about joining the group and you will be able to ask us any questions that you may still have.

After the orientation session, you begin the DBT skills group! You will have follow up check in sessions every 12 weeks or so. We will also check in with your primary therapist every 12 weeks or as often as needed. Depending on your needs, you will graduate after 6 months/ 1 year.

Ready to start?
