Catherine (Casey) Spicer is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who joined our staff in April 2018. She believes the skills and strategies offered in DBT help support clients in learning how to more effectively experience and tolerate their emotions so that living can be done without excess suffering – perhaps offering a means to living a life filled with abundance and joy. She has a passion for “whole-istic” treatment – attention paid to the whole person, the system they come from, and in the connection between mind, body and action.
Casey has a BA in Psychology from CSU Northridge and a MS in Counseling from CSU Northridge in Marriage and Family Therapy. Casey has participated in ongoing intensive training in dialectical behavior therapy since July 2017 and is a Family Connections program leader. Casey has also worked in a treatment center providing comprehensive and informed DBT therapy for eating disordered clients. Casey is also trained in the National Educational Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEA-BPD) Family Connections program, which focuses on support for loved ones of those who struggle with emotion dysregulation.
