Programs and Individual Therapy covered under most insurance plans who cover Registered Social Workers (MSW, RSW) and also a write off as a medical expense for your taxes. If you need an insurance receipt ask us when the group is over as insurance companies will only pay for the sessions once they have happened and they require receipts broken down by session.

Deciding on 12 or 24 week options for core program? Our Intro and Advanced are 12 weeks each. You can sign up for the 24 weeks upfront and save $200 on the cost of both or you can take the first 12 weeks and decide when you are finished if you want to go further. The research on efficacy shows that a 5 +month DBT program is recommended in order to really implement the skills. DBT as it was developed was originally meant to be a full 1 year program. In this format the content was first taught over a six month period and then the following six months was taught using the same content, methods etc. over again so that you get the benefit of running through twice. Many of our clients go through the course twice or go through the intro course twice before moving onto the advanced. I believe any amount of DBT is worth it and you are worth it!
