Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

The Center for Healing & Recovery offers a comprehensive

DBT program specializing in trauma and addictions. 

Our therapists bring together years of experience and dedication

working with families, men, and women who struggle with

symptoms of trauma such as personality disorders, self-harm,

suicidality, substance abuse, and eating disorders.


The components of treatment we offer include:

1) individual therapy, 2) skills training sessions,  and  

3) individual coaching calls.


Individual Therapy - clients attend 50-minute therapy sessions with their DBT therapist once a week.  Individual sessions focus on client's urges, emotions, and behaviors including how to apply DBT skills to specific situations. 

Skills Training - clients attend a 2-hour skills training class once a week with two DBT therapists and other DBT clients.  Skills training is conducted in a classroom style environment to help clients learn and use DBT skills.  Caregivers attend weekly skills training with their teen.

Individual Coaching - clients have access to 24/7 skills coaching calls with their DBT therapist.  Coaching calls are designed to help clients in the moment of both crisis and non-crisis situations use their DBT skills.  It may be easy for some to learn the skills in the classroom but, applying them in a real-world situation requires support and practice.

We are committed to providing evidence-based DBT treatment with an adherent program registered with the Missouri Department of Mental Health.  

All therapists on the DBT treatment team meet once a week for

consultation, training, and support from experienced DBT providers
