DBT Skills Group
Student Testimonials
(Dialectical Behavior Therapy)
with Lisa Wessan, LICSW


I completed the full 1 year program of DBT with Lisa. I can honestly say I'm a much wiser and more mindful person after completing this course. Lisa does a great job of managing the class and making sure everyone has a chance to share. I also really enjoyed developing relationships with the other members of the class. Sharing my issues with a group really helped me feel less alone. I had been in therapy for years but made the most progress with my mental health by taking DBT with Lisa.

Lisa is the most compassionate, insightful therapist I have worked with. I feel at ease talking with her and know she genuinely cares. She is an inspiring instructor of her DBT group which has helped me turn my negative beliefs around to live a more peaceful and rewarding life. Thank you Lisa!

I found Lisa to be compassionate and supportive, able to take me where I was and help me to get much closer to where I wanted to be. She is very skillful and knowledgeable in her field, but doesn't use it to impress or intimidate. Her gentle and friendly manner is as therapeutic as her professional expertise.
