A brand new treatment for those of us with too much self-control.


Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or RO-DBT is a treatment that has been developed over the past 20 years by Dr. Thomas Lynch and is ideal for those struggling with perfectionism, over-working, eating disorders, chronic depression, chronic anxiety, and other hard-to-treat groups.  To learn more about RO-DBT and the research that supports it, please visit

RO-DBT is a new treatment for people who have high self-control – yes it is possible to have too much of a good thing.  RO-DBT helps our clients find joy through connection and radical openness. It works by teaching you a series of skills to loosen up your temperament (the way that you’re genetically wired) so you feel more comfortable being open with others. This will allow you to create deeper relationships, feel more authentic, and decrease personal suffering.

How It Works

RO-DBT is an evidence-based treatment that consists of weekly individual therapy sessions combined with a weekly skills training class, facilitated by RO-DBT trained therapists. The core features of RO-DBT are listed below.

1. Openness

2. Flexibility

3. Connection

RO-DBT skills training class is a 30-week commitment.  There is a maximum of 14 people per class, and people can start at various times and then will complete the full 30-week lesson cycle.

Remember, learning new skills takes time.

RO-DBT Class Details

The RO-DBT skills class uses a traditional classroom format, like a small college class. Participants and facilitators sit at a table and review homework, are taught new skills, and assigned homework for the following week.  Our goal is to make learning as fun and informative as possible.
