How to Make a Referral


If you are a psychiatrist or other mental health professional wanting to make a referral for DBT, please call  Jill Tiedemann at 505-983-8502.

We look forward to hearing from you!


Santa Fe DBT provides standard and adherent DBT. A referral to DBT is a referral for the entire treatment, not for skills training only. DBT requires that clients have only one individual therapist, which means that the referring therapist must terminate with the client prior to the client beginning DBT. Sometimes, if everyone is in agreement, clients will return to the referring therapist after they complete the initial year of DBT.


Mental health professionals wishing to make a referral will need to provide the following information:


  • Client’s name, age and contact information

  • Client’s payment source

  • Client’s key problem behaviors including current substance use, suicidal behavior and recent hospitalizations

  • Client’s willingness to commit to treatment


Prospective clients will then contact Jill directly to get started.

Thank you for your referrals. We will do our best to provide your clients with excellent DBT treatment.
