Ask your clients to fill out the DBT Eastside ROI so we can inform you of their progress.

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy or DBT?

Dialectic Behavior Therapy is an evidenced-based therapy emphasizing life skills to treat emotional dysregulation, self-harm, addictive and impulsive behaviors as well as skills deficits in communicating with others.

DBT effectively treats anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, suicidal ideation, cutting, substance abuse, disordered eating, Borderline Personality Disorder and PTSD.

Clients and their affected others/parents may choose to continue with their non-DBT therapists for individual therapy and attend DBT Eastside Skills Groups, or for best results, participate in Gold Standard DBT.

How can DBT help my client?

We see it work every day.  Progress depends on each client's willingness to fully participate in learning and integrating skills into their lives.  Research tells us that DBT can significantly reduce suicidal ideation, ER visits, and inpatient admissions and greatly increase life satisfaction.

Our biggest hopes for your clients when they leave our program:

  • They will feel capable of mastering their emotions

  • They will have hope and the belief that life is worth living

  • They have concrete skills they can use for life

  • They will have a greater belief in their own competency and in their ability to achieve their life aspirations/hopes/dreams

  • They will have the feeling that they can survive anything life sends their way

No Show/Late Cancellation Policy for Intake Appointments
Failure to attend a scheduled Intake appointment without providing notice (No Show) or providing less than 24 hours notice (Late Cancellation) is very disruptive to our Intake Coordinator’s scheduling efforts and may prevent us from serving other requests as important as yours. A $100 fee will be incurred for missing your Intake session under these conditions.  Please be prepared to provide credit card information at time of scheduling. Your card will not be charged unless the fee is incurred.
We do understand that situations may arise that cause late cancellations and no shows.  The $100 fee will be waived if you choose to reschedule your appointment.
