Ann has been working at Athens DBT Center since July 2017. She is experienced in DBT group work and also in family work to resolve conflict.
Ann works with both adults and children. She has extensive experience working with teenagers dealing with aggression, self harm and suicidal thoughts.
Ann’s approach with DBT is to focus on what drives a particular behavior, and she seeks to understand what purpose the behavior is serving, so clients can identify more healthy ways to cope. She provides a comfortable and non-judgmental environment in order to promote a safe space to be able to address the difficult and life changing events or behaviors that have occurred in her clients’ lives.
Ann is part of the Consultation Team at Athens DBT and also receives formal Supervison in DBT from Iain Halstead, LCSW
