Trinitas Institute for Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Allied Treatments

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is considered to be the gold standard for treating individuals who have difficulties with emotional regulation. At Trinitas DBT, we believe that everyone should have access to comprehensive, quality DBT. We are committed to providing treatment in a compassionate, individualized, and effective manner that emphasizes the balance between acceptance and change. Our ultimate goal is assisting our clients in building lives worth living!

The DBT programs at the Trinitas Institute are certified by the DBT-Linehan Board of Certification (DBT-LBC)TM. This means that they were independently evaluated by DBT experts and observed to have the structure and practices consistent with the ability to provide comprehensive (or adapted) DBT. This matters most for clients, families, and consumers because it increases the chances they are getting adherent, research-supported DBT treatment.
