A Note From Our Team!
Hello and welcome to the Compass family!
This clinic was founded specifically to address the needs of kids, teens and young adults who struggle with mood dysregulation, substance abuse, self-harm, thoughts of suicide, relational disruptions or extremes in thinking. Research shows that the most effective treatment is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT. DBT is the treatment of choice for children and adolescents who have chronic difficulties in interpersonal settings and a hard time regulating their emotions.
Kids who have completed the adherent model of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT skills group, individual DBT therapy, phone coaching) and whose families have joined them in the learning process have:
- Fewer hospitalizations
- Improved mood
- Less interpersonal conflict
- Less self-harm
- Greater sense of internal calm
- Greater skillfulness during life's challenges
