    We appreciate your referral. Due to overwhelming demand for comprehensive DBT, we currently have a wait time of at least 6 months for DBT service depending on the type of DBT clinician you are seeking (e.g., trainee vs. psychologist). Not all of our clinicians see clients in the comprehensive DBT program. Once we receive your referral form, we will automatically place you on our DBT waitlist and contact you when an opening might become available.
    For inquiry of non-DBT services (e.g., individual CBT sessions, couples therapy, solution focused therapy etc.), we will try our best to connect you with a clinician within a couple of weeks. In general, the more flexible your schedule is for appointments, the sooner we would be able to offer you service.
