Why choose Austin DBT Associates

Austin DBT Associates (ADBTA) is one of the leading Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT®) providers in Texas. 

One of the most common frustrations with therapy is feeling like you gain insight during a session, but it doesn’t translate into behavioral change outside of the session. Our complete DBT® program includes individual therapy, skills training, team consultation and phone coaching.  This comprehensive approach is often more effective than traditional therapy because we teach the skills and provide the tools to help people cope with intense emotions, enhance interpersonal relationships, and navigate challenging situations.

Real stories from real people

I know there are a variety of clinicians that work here, but I can say that my experiences with my counselor has been 5 stars. Even in just a few weeks, she has been so incredibly helpful – one of the best counselors I think I have ever seen. I’m so grateful for my sessions here.


The level of care, compassion, and kindness that I’ve gotten has been exponentially better than any therapist I’ve seen in the past. Her professional advice and support has meant the world to me and my recovery. For self pay, the prices are well worth it and the healing I’ve been able to do is worth every penny and then some. 


My therapist at DBT Associates has been caring, kind, compassionate, and an advocate for my healthcare. She has promptly completed paperwork for my employer and has kept me accountable for my targets.  They offer affordable group therapy. Group therapy is great because it provides structure and you can follow along with the DBT workbook.
