Seeking services at DBTCS

The process of receiving services at the DBT Center of Seattle begins with a brief phone call to our office staff who will provide information about us, including our fees, and answer questions you have about our services. She will briefly ask you some questions to get an initial impression of whether we might be of help with the problems you are experiencing. If it appears that we might be of help, you will be sent an information packet, and an orientation appointment will be set with one of our therapists. You will be asked to complete some information in the packet before attending your initial appointment and to bring that information with you at the time of your appointment. It is helpful to arrive early so the therapist can review the information before actually meeting with you. You can also mail or fax the information to us.

If, at the time of your initial appointment, you decide you would like to receive services from us, you will be asked to set a review appointment. At the time of the review appointment the therapist may ask more in depth questions to understand the nature of your difficulties, and to develop the most effective approach to solving your difficulties. In the third session your treatment plan will be finalized (treatment planning appointment).
