Hi! My name is Tracy Kalloway and I'm the owner of Wise Mind Therapy. We are currently looking to add therapists to our team, and we appreciate your interest. At Wise Mind we specialize in Comprehensive DBT Therapy, and about 90% of the work we do uses this modality. Comprehensive DBT can be a challenging therapy to practice, and it's not for everyone. It can also be extremely rewarding.
