  • Value a multi-disciplinary, culturally competent team committed to leading-edge clinical training and on-going research.
  • Commitment to clinical excellence, quality assurance, and accountability to our families for measurable treatment outcomes.

We offer health insurance (family medical, dental, and vision coverage) and cover 90% of the employee insurance premium.

We practice what we teach, living in community through weekly staff mindfulness practice, to communal meals and group exercise.

Inside View

Most Compass’ Clinicians are DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Clinicians™ and calibrated DBT Adherence Coders through the University of Washington, coding and scoring videos and case formulations for DBT adherence for the DBT-Linehan Board of Certification™. In Compass’ commitment to excellence and quality assurance, a percentage of all Compass sessions are randomly selected and coded for adherence to the research protocol.

Compass was the first DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Program™, in California. Achieving this certification was a rigorous process that ensured our families were receiving the “gold standard” in DBT treatment and care.

As a designated Performance Site through Duke University, we track our treatment outcomes in the pursuit of advancing the development of evidenced-based treatments. Every 6 months, we measure our treatment outcomes through a standardized battery of tests. A summary of these test results are available to our families on a quarterly basis. In addition, Compass is conducting a longitudinal study of its program treatment gains post discharge as the ultimate source of accountability to our families.

Our program is a required rotation in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for UCI Medical School psychiatrists in training. This rotation will help psychiatrists incorporate DBT skills into their practice so that all forms of treatment can work together.


Our purpose lives and breathes in the symbolism behind our name. Compass: An elegant tool that puts the power to find your true north in your hands. Without forcing you to take a single step or promising to take your steps for you. Without judgment and with an unshakeable sense of direction. Relying on a compass makes you stronger and more confident, not weaker and more dependent. A compass is your guide, not your master. And as every skilled guide knows, no journey should be undertaken without the right tools.
