Clearwater is an outpatient mental health clinic that specializes in DBT therapy, integrative trauma interventions, and assessment for all age groups.

Clearwater is located in Orinda, conveniently located just a few minutes off Highway 24. We have free parking available and are  within a five minute walk from the Orinda BART station. We typically serve Oakland, Berkeley, Lamorinda, Walnut Creek,  and Tri-Valley communities.

Individual therapy appointments range in cost from $165 to $250 per 50 minute session depending on degree, licensure and the experience level of the clinician. Clinicians maintain sliding scale spots on their caseloads. We assess sliding scale options for therapy and class participation on a case-by-case basis. Clearwater does NOT accept any direct third party payments, including private insurance and Medi-Cal. We provide clients with an invoice/super bill to submit to insurance for an out-of-network reimbursement.


Our DBT Skills classes fill up very quickly. If you interested in enrollment in an upcoming module, please submit an online inquiry right away. Our enrollment process (i.e., initial inquiry, paperwork completion, intake appointment, enrollment confirmation) can take up to 3 weeks. Please plan accordingly to provide enough time for all steps. 

We are no longer requiring masks inside our clinic or classes. This policy is subject to change as per state and federal guidelines.
