Welcome!

The San Francisco Dialectical Behavior Therapy Center (SFDBT) and its affiliated therapists offer Dialectical Behavior Therapy services. Its cofounders, Deborah Mitchell, Ph.D. and Mark Rosenthal, LCSW, established the Center in 2006. 

All of the SFDBT-affiliated therapists have been formally trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and have attended both the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Intensive Training Course and the Advanced Intensive Training Course through Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP’s organization, Behavioral Tech. In addition, all of our therapists are certified by the DBT-Linehan Board of Certification.

Our goal is to build a therapeutic, loving and transformative clinical environment to foster and sustain lives worth living.
