Fees: The cost for an intake session is $160 for a 50-minute session.
Individual DBT therapy involves weekly or biweekly sessions that focus on addressing unhelpful behaviors. Our individual DBT therapists have undergone DBT Core Clinical Training and participate in weekly Consultation Team Meetings, ensuring that you receive genuine DBT therapy.

DBT Skills Group
Our DBT skills groups are held on a weekly basis in eight-week blocks. Each block covers the Mindfulness module and one of the other three modules, which include Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. To fully participate, clients commit to attending the skills program for the entire eight-week block. Completing three consecutive eight-week blocks provides a comprehensive 24-week DBT skills training program. In certain cases, clients may choose to engage in a second round of skills groups, completing a full year of treatment.
To attend the DBT skills group, clients must also attend individual therapy with one of our affiliated therapists at least twice per month. This integration of group and individual therapy helps clients apply the skills they learn in a supportive environment.
Group fees: The cost for an eight-week skills group is $800.
Skills coaching is an integral part of the treatment process. It allows clients to generalize the skills they learn in group and individual therapy to their daily lives. At DBT Winnipeg, we provide skills coaching support through an email system exclusively for clients actively attending DBT Skills Groups. Clients can email for coaching assistance at any time during the week to learn how to apply the skills effectively.
Fees: Skills coaching is included in the cost of the Skills Training Group.
