Frequently asked questions (FAQ).
Therapy and Assessment
At Oakland DBT and Mindfulness Center we offer a range of therapeutic services, including full DBT which is adherent to the model developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. as well as more traditional therapy that infuses some of the tools and philosophical underpinnings of DBT with other styles of treatment. We also offer formal psychological assessments for clients who are in need of a more in-depth report.
