Counseling Solutions offers an inhouse Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Program coordinated and developed by a nationally certified DBT therapist Dr. Marsha Linehan. This program follows the original version of DBT. This is an evidence-based therapeutic approach known to be highly effective and long-lasting. Anyone interested in attending this program can contact us at 254-519-1144.
The DBT program utilizes a four step initiative. Steps include:
- Individual therapy with a DBT trained therapist
- Testing to establish baselines and focus goals
- DBT skills group
- Family/marriage/couples therapy
Also added into this initiative is integrative therapy involving our interns and community referrals. It is important that the individual be committed to getting better and following the program. This is an investment of time, finances, and support. Each participant in this program will have their own DBT treatment team meeting regularly to evaluate progress and fine tuning the individualized treatment plan for the client.
Even though the initial DBT program has four steps, that is where the treatment plan similarities end. We individualize which tests are administered to each client, which goals are selected, and the integrative therapy needed. Our front office team is very helpful in minimizing the cost out of pocket for each participant. This cost usually maximizes at $40 per week; everything else offered in the program is covered by insurance.
There are two additional services we offer not covered by insurance: certified hypnotherapy and licensed massage. These are available upon request.
