Information for providers referring an adolescent or adult:
Referral for Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)

You may also have you client call me directly. CBT can be effective with or without medication. I can coordinate treatment with the prescribing clinician as needed.
Referral for Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

I'd be happy to discuss the reasons for this and a transition process with both you and your client. Clients may return to the referring therapist after they complete the initial year of DBT. I can coordinate treatment with the prescribing clinician as needed.
Therapists wishing to make a referral will need to provide the following information when they call:
