CCDBT would like to announce the retirement of Dr. Burt Silverman from our practice.  Dr. Silverman was instrumental in the creation of CCDBT and often liked to call himself the “oldest living DBT therapist.”  He touched many lives in his numerous careers, including high school guidance counselor, teacher, and furrier.  Our staff and patients will have to radically accept his retirement, although we will miss him dearly.
