“The spirit of consultation, that of a community of therapists treating a community of patients, all in it together, characterizes the best DBT teams.

The Value of working with a member in the Consortium

South Florida DBT consortium was cofounded by Dr. Sara A. Hosn, Dr. Lydia Kalsner, and Dr. Holly Bedotto whose practices had been on the same DBT consultation team for many years. Collectively the three practices have grown and the team now includes nine licensed psychologists and one licensed clinical social worker. Working with a member from the consortium provides the consumer with the reassurance that consultation is being sought from this multifaceted team of experts.
