Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Group (DBT)
Student Reviews of Lisa Wessan, LICSW


I found Lisa to be compassionate and supportive, able to take me where I was and help me to get much closer to where I wanted to be. She is very skillful and knowledgeable in her field, but doesn't use it to impress or intimidate. Her gentle and friendly manner is as therapeutic as her professional expertise.

I completed the full 1year program of DBT with Lisa. I can honestly say I'm a much wiser and more mindful person after completing this course. Lisa does a great job of managing the class and making sure everyone has a chance to share. I also really enjoyed developing relationships with the other members of the class. Sharing my issues with a group really helped me feel less alone. I had been in therapy for years but made the most progress with my mental health by taking DBT with Lisa.

Lisa is the most compassionate, insightful therapist I have worked with. I feel at ease talking with her and know she genuinely cares. She is an inspiring instructor of her DBT group which has helped me turn my negative beliefs around to live a more peaceful and rewarding life. Thank you Lisa!

Lisa is a collaborative, inclusive, relatable, compassionate and fun-loving psychotherapist, life coach and teacher. She shares brilliant insights, observations and resources at every session. I am inspired by our work together, feel better and stronger than ever! I can heartily recommend Lisa for individual and DBT group work.

I want to share an experience with everyone.  Iíve always seen myself as having very bad luck with contests/raffles.  I considered myself a loser.  Thus, I rarely attempted any type of raffle.


Last week I received an email from the Littleton Electric Company.  They were asking customers to fill out a survey regarding energy consumption.  In other words, each customerís current usage plans and projected future usage.  They mentioned there would be an opportunity to win a $50 gift card for filling out the survey.


I thought to myself, I have the same chance of winning as the others who filled in the survey.  I felt positive that I could win.  This is a new feeling for me as I always considered myself a contest loser.  I believe my positive belief of winning comes from my work with DBT and therapy.


Low and behold, I won the $50 Amazon gift card in which 850 people had the chance of winning.


I believe projecting positive energy helped my success.  It was an enlightening experience.  I was thrilled.

Lisa, I am really glad that I found this DBT group. It has been a pleasure working with you and the group. I have grown SO MUCH since the start of this group. I look forward to coming to group every week, and I always leave feeling better! My favorite part of group is the meditation portion. Thank you!
