Charleston DBT Associates  (CDBTA)  is a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) consultation team providing a comprehensive DBT program in Charleston, South Carolina.

Led by Linehan Institute intensively trained therapist, Kristi Galloway, CDBTA was formed in 2019 to bring together private practice clinicians in the greater Charleston area committed to offering adherent DBT treatment. Our mission is to provide this evidence-based treatment program to better serve the Charleston community, while mentoring and supporting DBT clinicians.

CDBTA provides comprehensive DBT for individuals struggling with challenging emotional and behavioral issues, including borderline personality disorder (BPD) , bipolar disorder, self-injury, and suicidality. DBT involves powerful strategies for change balanced with acceptance and compassion.

 

Together, as Charleston’s local DBT consultation team, we strive to be leaders in the community, providing evidence-based treatments to help our clients build a life worth living.
