Frances Berry, Ph.D.

I graduated from Idaho State University with a Master’s of Counseling and a Ph.D. In Counseling and Counselor Education. I have experience working with adolescents and adults in private practice and residential settings. I was recently trained in DBT and am happy to join the Athens DBT team. 


My goal as a therapist is, first, to create a safe and welcoming space for all clients, and second, to assist clients through the inevitable challenges and distress that life hands to us all. I believe that each person’s struggle is unique and each person is worthy of finding their way through it to their own sense of peace and happiness. As DBT theory suggests: I hope we can work together to find and create your life worth living.
