Helping women with personality disorders build rewarding lives


Treatment Approach

The treatment program at the Gunderson Residence is founded on therapeutic approaches that are proven helpful by scientific research. We integrate dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mentalization-based treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, and illness education into both individual and group therapy programs.

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and resources needed to build more stable relationships and gain skills that enable you to live a more effective, balanced, and rewarding life.

We will provide you with an individually tailored, comprehensive program of services. This care plan is designed to provide a continuum of care from early stages of treatment focused on stabilization of severe symptoms to later stages of care focused on increasing self-reliance and building a rewarding and robust life outside of treatment.

Let us help you. Call 888.657.5699 today to speak with our admissions coordinator.
