To our DBT community here in Southern Oregon and around the World


In light of the recent political events that have created a climate of intolerance and hate in many of our communities, we affirm our belief that all persons are created equal, that we are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, including freedom and the pursuit of meaningful lives worth living – no matter the color of our skin, what (or whether) we choose to worship, where we were born, our citizenship status, our sexual orientation, or the extent of our poverty or wealth.

As mental health providers, we understand the pain and suffering experienced by being perceived and treated as the “other” – personally and systemically through explicit and implicit racism, sexism, homophobia, nativism, and classism. We strive to build a world that is just and compassionate, one that honors difference and praises radical and authentic connection between people.

We do not condone acts of hate, division, or xenophobia, and pledge to not stand idly by as they occur. We commit ourselves to the cause of justice, to speaking up and to intervening in the face of divisive and demeaning voices, policy, and actions. We pledge to work within and across communities, and to building bonds of understanding, respect, and compassion. We pledge our allegiance to those most vulnerable, as we insist on the dignity and sanctity of each human life.

  • Be more effective in their interactions with family, friends and teacher

  • We also aim to assist families in their own practice of skills necessary to help their teens grow and develop as they progress into adulthood.


    This program is open to teens aged 13-18 and family participation from at least one parent is mandatory. The program consists of:

  • Weekly individual therapy sessions for the teen and the parents
  • Weekly skills training group sessions for both teens and parents to attend together
