Iain Halsted, LCSW
Clinical Director; Group Facilitator and Individual DBT Therapist
Originally from London England, Iain (pronounced the same as Ian) has worked in all
areas of the mental health field. He became interested in DBT after recognizing that
clients needed more than one hour of therapy a week if they wanted to make big
changes in their lives.
Iain has been intensively trained in DBT by Marsha Linehan and her team at
Behavioral Tech of Seattle, by Shari Manning of Treatment Intensive Collaborative
and by Alec Miller, author of the DBT Skills Manual for Adolescents. He is currently an
active member of a DBT consultation team.
As adjunct therapies that support the work of DBT, Iain has been trained in DBT
Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD as well as Cognitive Processing Therapy for
PTSD. In addition, he has also trained with Drs. Aaron and Judith Beck in the
treatment of anxiety disorders.
"Working with people is my passion. I understand how hard it can be to get out of bed
sometimes, and how overwhelming it can be to ride the roller coaster of your emotions
day after day. However, I can help. This is a therapy designed to change your life. It
puts you back in control of your own mind, it helps you make the best decisions, and it
lets you get back to living the life you want to live. DBT works!"
