Clearwater is an outpatient mental health clinic that offers DBT therapy and assessment for all age groups, in addition to other professional mental health services.

Clearwater is located blocks from Kaiser Permanente in Oakland. It has parking available, is on a major bus line, and is within walking distance of the MacArthur BART station. It is only about a 25 minute drive from Walnut Creek, Danville, and other Tri-Valley communities.

Individual therapy appointments range in cost from $165 to $200 per 50 minute session depending on the experience level of the clinician. Our adult DBT skills classes are a 24-week series and cost $720 per person for an 8-week segment. The Multi-Family skills classes in our adolescent program are a 24-week series and cost $960 for one teen and one parent/caregiver for a 6-week segment.  Clearwater does NOT accept any direct third party payments, including private insurance and Medi-Cal.

To find out more about costs, appointments, skills classes, and/or talk to our intake coordinator, Dr. Erika Swanson, who is also a senior DBT therapist, book a consult time using the online booking portal in the upper right hand corner of our website.
