Groups are offered regularly (info below, all times are Eastern time). In order to join a group, I ask that you complete a 90-minute orientation session with me (unless otherwise noted). This allows for rolling admission so you can join any time and be up to speed. Some people need 6 weeks to learn and practice all the skills while others just need one or two modules. We’ll determine what’s best for you on our orientation call.
DBT Skills Training Group
Thu 6:30p - 8pm OR Sun 11a - 12:30p
A weekly class for individuals ages 17+ who want to develop the ability to regulate their emotions rather than react to them, tolerate distress when faced with problems that cannot be solved in the moment without making things worse, and to engage effectively in relationships by making and keeping friends, breaking away from toxic relationships while increasing their own self-worth.
Before joining a DBT Skills Training group, you must complete a 90-minute Orientation and Assessment. Appointments are virtual and the cost is $225.
I've learned DBT several ways. Lisa is the best by far.
“I find her way of consolidating all this information very creative, and approached in a way that I never have even considered. I’ve learned DBT several ways: On Facebook, in an eating disorders place, and through Lisa. Lisa is the best by far.”
Advanced DBT Skills Training Group
Every other Sun 1:30p - 3p
COST: $55/session or $300 for 12 weeks
A ninety minute bi-weekly class for individuals ages 18 and above who have graduated from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Group and have been recommended by their therapist or group leader as being ready to practice their skills in a classroom setting that puts greater emphasis on the group dynamic and interpersonal sharing and support.

Lisa is an excellent teacher and teaches skills to the group in an approachable and relatable way.
“I would recommend Lisa’s group to anyone who is highly sensitive and wants to learn how to more effectively handle your emotions and interactions with others. Learning how to apply DBT skills to my life was the most valuable aspect. I learned to be more mindful and less judgmental of my thoughts and emotions.”
