Our DBT clinicians have extensive experience in providing DBT in both the public and private sector. Natasha and Kyla have received 10-day Core Clinical Training from Dr. Shari Manning and Dr. Michelle Galietta from the Treatment Implementation Collaborative. They have both gone on to take numerous additional training programs in specific implementation strategies of DBT, mindfulness, and the treatment of trauma. Natasha has a range of clinical experience in community-based DBT programs and skills coaching in crisis services. Kyla has comprehensive DBT inpatient experience, specifically in targeting complex behavioural concerns. 


We believe in providing a variety of treatment options to our clients. Following an intake assessment, we will make treatment recommendations based on a comprehensive risk assessment. If a client is deemed high risk, we recommend they engage in Full DBT. If a client is lower risk and wants to explore other treatment options, we will discuss what type of treatment plan would be best suited for their situation. We create all of our treatment plans collaboratively with our clients. 


DBT Winnipeg is able to keep both group and individual therapy costs down simply because it is run by Psychiatric Nurses. Our lower rates do not make us less qualified or experienced in DBT. It simply keeps the treatment more accessible than some other private treatment options. 

Our current rates for individual therapy are $135/50 minute session.  

Group rates are $95/2-hour group.


*Insurance Policies: Some private insurance companies will reimburse clients for therapy sessions. It is the responsibility of the client to know what their insurance coverage policies provide. Receipts are provided for both insurance and tax purposes.   

How do I know I'm getting full DBT?

Full DBT Treatment involves weekly DBT skills training groups with a homework review component, weekly individual therapy sessions, and access to skills coaching to help you apply skills outside of group.

A DBT Therapist should have comprehensive core clinical training of 10-days from a recognized training program. A skills group leader should have a minimum of 5-day training in skills and coaching from a recognized training program.


All DBT team members are required to attend weekly consultation team meetings. Consultation team is a meeting where therapists work on staying adherent to the treatment, decreasing burn-out, and when necessary applying the treatment to one another.
