About

I am a licensed psychologist and DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Clinician(tm) at the Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy with expertise in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and trauma. I have extensive experience providing evidence-based treatments to children, adolescents, and adults with trauma, depression, anxiety, and disruptive behavior, as well as complex psychosocial stressors. I am devoted to providing exceptional treatment to children, adolescents, and families, empowering them with tools to enhance their relationships and navigate life’s challenges effectively.
I use DBT and cognitive-behavioral strategies to treat adolescents and young adults who are experiencing multiple problems including suicidality, self-harm, depression and anxiety, mood swings, interpersonal difficulties, eating disordered behavior, and symptoms of trauma. I provide individual therapy, DBT skills group, and 24/7 phone coaching.
Change can be challenging. However, I believe that clients and therapists are equal partners in making life changes happen, and use a collaborative, compassionate, and individualized treatment approach to help clients succeed. I look forward to helping you learn strategies to build a life worth living.

Atara Hiller's Groups

DBT multi-family skills group

The group teaches teens and their parent(s) the following DBT skill modules: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and walking the middle path. It has a class-like format with handouts, take-home exercises, and experiential activities, but there is no expectation that group members share information that is uncomfortable. Research has shown that caregivers' involvement makes treatment more effective because caregivers learn to serve as coaches for their children and benefit from learning the skills themselves. Teens must have an individual DBT therapist at the Center for CBT or be a program-approved outside DBT provider.
