Dialectical Behavior Therapy Treatment Team

Your Dialectical Behavior Therapy treatment team includes psychiatrists, therapists, psychologists, nurses, mental health workers, social workers, and occupational and activities therapists. Doctors and advanced practice nurse specialists meet with you daily. They evaluate and diagnose your condition and help guide your treatment. They can answer any questions and concerns that you have about your condition, your medicine, and your treatment. Your individual therapist will help you learn how to apply what you are learning in the groups to your personal life. Staff members are always available to talk with you and to provide support and personal assistance. In addition, medical internists, neurologists, dietitians and psychologists serve as consultants, and a chaplain is also available to meet with you at your request.
