DBT Consultation Services

Dr. Rachel Gingold and Dr. Wendy Loonin are clinical psychologists who have completed intensive training in DBT. They have led a DBT clinical team for the past 10 years in Summit, NJ. Their practice, FHWS, provides a fully adherent DBT treatment program to adolescents, young adults, and their families throughout Central and Northern New Jersey. Both are commited to helping patients to improve the quality of their lives, first and foremost, by learning to regulate their emotions. What they have observed in their combined 25 years of DBT practice is how integrating DBT concepts and skills enables young people to create and maintain healthy relationships, to develop a positive sense of self, and to ultimately set and reach meaningful life goals.

As consultants, our aim is to teach personnel the main components of DBT (e.g., commitment strategies, behavioral chains, contingency management strategies, diary cards, skills overview, team formulation and functioning, and the underlying principles that inform the style and execution of effective DBT treatment.
