Lata McGinn and Alec Miller, both of whom are internationally renowned experts in their respective fields of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
CBC is comprised of a group of highly skilled clinicians who utilize evidence-based therapy to treat children, adolescents, adults, families and couples. Clinicians at CBC have been intensively trained in CBT and DBT, and have expertise in the treatment of a wide range of disorders.
