Getting Started

If you want to get started with The DBT Clinic, click here to contact us today.  We will schedule an intake appointment, where you will meet with one of our clinicians to discuss your symptoms.  This clinician will  assess your needs in therapy, answer any questions you may have, and discuss their clinical recommendations based on your presented needs.

Before your first session, we have some paperwork for you to fill out. You can download and print the forms by clicking here.  This allows you to complete the paperwork at your leisure in the comfort of your own home.  You also have the option to fill out the paperwork  once you arrive at our clinic.  If you want this option, please let us know, so we can set it out for you.  Arrive about 15-20 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete the paperwork.

Also, if you intend to use insurance, please bring your insurance card, so we can get a copy of it.  Among the staff members here, we try to panel with most of the major insurance companies in this area.  You can find a list of the insurance companies individual staff members are paneled with here.

We also ask that you know the details of your individual insurance plan (plans can vary widely).  You can find out the details of your plan by calling your insurance company (the number is usually printed on the back of your insurance card).  By doing this before your session, you can find out specifics of your outpatient mental health benefits.  Please know the following information:

  • Your co-pay or co-insurance.
  • If you have a deductible, and the amount remaining.
  • If your clinician is in network with your particular plan.  If not, find out the details of your out-of-network benefits, if any.
