Who We Are
We believe in what we do.
We believe in what is possible for you,
even when you are unable to believe in yourself.
If you are here, you are looking for something BIG. The decision to come to therapy is no easy one as it involves risk, vulnerability, courage and strength to speak openly and find some peace. Many times the decision to start therapy is because things are not going well, or perhaps they could be better. Talking about tough topics with a complete stranger is usually enough to send most running in the opposite direction; and on top of that, time and money are always of concern. Know that if you are feeling this apprehension, you are in the right spot, and we get it! Consider this to be the first step in investing in something extremely valuable that you will only ever have one chance at; your life. DBT of South Jersey is here and ready to help with treatment that works.
Simply said, we aim to help adolescents and adults find meaning in life. You may question this now, however, we will help you to see that you are doing the best you can at any given moment, while acknowledging that the way things are need to change. In Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), you will learn that long lasting change cannot come without genuine acceptance. Compassion is the vehicle for this process.

"I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship."
