  • Do you take insurance, including Medicaid and Medicare?
    We do not.
  • What does out of network mean?
    Out of Network means that we do not participate with any insurance plans. We will provide you with a superbill on the 10th of each month for the month prior that lists all the services provided. This can be located on your online portal. You can submit this superbill to your insurance company for reimbursement if you have Out of Network benefits under your insurance. You will need to contact your insurance directly to find out how much they will cover.
  • What is the time commitment for the comprehensive DBT program?
    Initially, clients commit to a minimum of 6 months of treatment, which would include the weekly DBT skills group and weekly individual sessions. Near the end of these 6 months, clients review their progress with their individual therapist and skills leaders. If the client and treatment team feels that the program has been helpful in attaining goals and the client wants to continue, they can recontract for another 6 months of treatment. We find that most clients stay for the additional 6 months of support, which could include both the skills group and individual sessions, or some clients may step down to just the weekly sessions or move on to an advanced group.
  • What is the time commitment for parents of adolescents in our program?
    At least one caregiver will need to complete one full course of the skills group, which is about 6 months. Parents attend the skills group with their teen and learn/practice the same skills with them.
  • Do you have family counseling?
    Many of our clients at some point in their treatment find that having family sessions may be a helpful additional support. We do offer family sessions as a part of our program.
  • Do you handle medication management?
    We do not provide medication management. We do collaborate with clients’ psychiatrists.
  • How many participants are in each group?
    Our groups usually have 7 or fewer participants, with the maximum being 8. For our multi-family groups, we have a maximum of ten participants (which could be three to five families, depending on how many parents each teen has participating with them in the group).
  • What if we go on vacation for a couple of weeks during the year?
    If you are planning on missing 4 weeks of treatment in a row, then this would not be the right time for you to start a DBT program.
  • Do you have IOPs or PHPs?
    We do not.
  • Can we do just the regular therapy and not the groups? Can we do just the groups and not the regular therapy?
    During the intake assessment, your therapist will talk with you about what their recommendation is for treatment and what the options are based on your situation. Most people who are referred to our program by outside professionals find that our comprehensive program is the best fit for them (both attending groups and individual sessions).
  • Do you have a therapist who specializes in LGBTQIA+ issues and concerns?
    All of our clinicians are LGBTQIA+ affirming. Several of our therapists have experience and special interests in working with clients who identify as part of this community.
  • Do you have any LGBTQIA+ staff?
    We do.
  • Can I speak with the therapist for 10 minutes sometime prior to the intake?
    We do not offer consultation with the therapist before the intake meetings.
  • Do you see children?
    We do not treat individuals under the age of 12 in our DBT program.
  • I was referred for DBT but I don’t know what it is—how is it different from other therapy?
    During an intake session, the therapist will talk with you about DBT and what makes it different from other types of therapy. You can check out this website for some more information on DBT: You could also watch this video on what is DBT.
