DBT-Linehan Board of Certification

The Treatment Implementation Collaborative, LLC (TIC) has over 25 years of experience with some of the most highly qualified Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) experts in the world. 

We are a group of experienced DBT clinicians, trainers and consultants.  We offer DBT training, consultation and supervision to mental health systems, agencies and individuals - our main goal is DBT Implementation.   We can support anyone from their first encounter with learning and providing DBT through to advanced practice and certification. 

We passionately believe in what we do, how we do it and the fact that we can, all of us, in our own way, change the world for the better. 

We didn’t start TIC to be the best in the world, we started TIC to be

the best for the world. 

Join us, let's make a difference.
