Three adolescents

Our team provides evidence-based treatment, training, and research to improve emotion regulation for young people impacted by suicidal thoughts and behaviors, self-harm, and mood, anxiety, trauma, and obsessive-compulsive-related disorders

In addition to our comprehensive DBT clinic and individual CBT services, we are currently offering CBT groups for depression, social anxiety, and transdiagnostic emotion coping skills for teens as well as a group for school-age children and their parents to decrease worry. Our team members regularly provide consultation to Contra Costa and San Francisco county behavioral health services on implementing DBT with suicidal youth and trainings on evidence-based practices to assess and manage suicide risk.

Not only does our program advocate and train for broader implementation of evidence-based practices, we hold ourselves to the same standards and implement an evaluation protocol with all of our services. This evaluation is the foundation for our innovative research program to improve behavior therapy for youth struggling with depression, anxiety, and suicide by leveraging technology and improving the clinical utility of assessments.
