Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for Adolescents in the Twin Cities

Kids these days are complicated, facing pressures and need more than love

Some things are too big, too heavy, too hard and too much for all of us, including our kids and teens. There’s nothing simple or automatic about growing up and understanding one’s self—most of us work at it our entire lives. At MHS, we tailor DBT to fit young people and your young person. It’s not DBT-lite, it’s DBT-appropriate.

We separate our adolescent Twin Cities DBT programs by two age groups:

Parenting and teen-ing aren’t easy, we can help.
