Our Mission

Families On The Line is an outpatient, DBT-adherent practice. Our extensively trained clinicians are dedicated to providing a range of evidence-based treatments to address emotional, behavioral, relational, and lifestyle concerns. Particular areas of expertise include the treatment of severe emotional dysregulation or borderline personality disorder (BPD) and its associated co-morbidities. We know and fully understand how painful this struggle is for patients as well as most often for their families, and we are passionate about helping relieve this suffering.

Our Treatment

We offer formal and adherent DBT services: this includes individual therapy, skills groups, and phone coaching. Importantly we also offer family, parent or couple therapy; as teaching DBT-based competencies to family members is proven to be effective for families and for patients. Because BPD can present with multiple comorbidities, our clinicians are trained in complementary therapies including treatment for trauma, grief, substance use, anxiety disorders, suicidality or self-injurious behaviors, and difficulties with interpersonal relationships.We also offer evidence-based treatment of trauma and trauma related conditions, anxiety, substance use and grief through Cognitive Behavior Therapy, DBT-PE (Prolonged Exposure), Motivational Interviewing, Mentalization and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.)

Families on the Line, LLC's Groups

DBT Skills Group for Individuals

This is a weekly group aimed to help individuals reach their goals through acquisition and strengthening of behavioral skills. Group members learn four broad types of skills to deal more effectively with their emotions. These include: 1) Mindfulness: how to stay present and aware in the current moment; 2) Distress Tolerance: how to tolerate/accept painful experiences without making it worse; 3) Interpersonal Effectiveness: how to ask for what you want and say no to things you don't; and 4) Emotion Regulation: how to change/modulate your emotions. Group entry occurs on a rolling basis.
