What is DBT?

DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) is an evidenced based behavioral treatment, which means there is research to prove its effectiveness; it combines elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Zen principles of mindfulness and compassion.

Our Specialized Services

DBT of South Jersey offers a comprehensive DBT program for Teens and Adults including individual therapy, skills training group, phone coaching and therapist consultation. In addition to DBT, our staff are trained in and utilize the special modalities listed below to help their clients heal and grow.

DBT-Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE) is a treatment option for those who have experienced trauma or traumatic invalidation, and are experiencing symptoms of complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

EMDR is a therapeutic technique originally developed by Francine Sharpiro in order to help people find relief from the emotional distress they feel related to traumatic and/or upsetting life experiences.

EXRP is the treatment of choice for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Research has shown that part of how we feel emotionally is triggered by our facial expressions and body postures. Our bodies communicate how we are feeling to our brain, so by changing our body, we can influence our emotional state.

We would love to support you.

DBT of South Jersey is a community of therapists who aim to help clients find acceptance, and balance it with meaningful change through a compassionate lens. Our goal is to be the leading provider of DBT services by providing excellent care to you, your teen, your partner, or your friend. We believe in what we do. We believe in what is possible for you!

Who We Are

Our Mission

"At DBT of South Jersey, we are the beacon of hope when the path seems uncertain. We are relentless in our pursuit of clinical excellence, dedicated to empowering our clients to cultivate resilience, nurture healing, and embrace personal growth. With a foundation of acceptance, change, and compassion, we guide children, adolescents, and adults towards newfound confidence in managing challenging emotions and skillfully navigating life's journey."

As a team, we practice authenticity and fallibility as we support one another. We value getting it right over being right. We are confident in our clinical skills and areas of expertise, while also understanding that no one is perfect. We believe setbacks are a chance to learn and grow from.

We are dedicated to helping each other feel safe, seen, supported and accepted. We commit to do the ongoing work needed in order to be an inclusive, anti-racist and affirming practice. We work to normalize feedback regularly to create space for listening, learning and adapting.

We provide quality care that works. We strive to be the best at what we do and are not ok with doing therapy that is "good enough”. We are committed to ongoing growth, learning, and training to keep our skills sharp and support treatment interventions that move clients to their goals.
