Abri, based in Portland, Oregon, is one of the first psychotherapy clinics worldwide to specialize solely in Radically Open DBT for disorders of over-control.
Founded by two friends and colleagues, LiLin Hally (LCSW) and Kirsten McAteer (LPC), who bring to Abri over twenty-five years of combined clinical expertise in the treatment of adults and adolescents with eating disorders, depression, and treatment-resistant anxiety.
Both LiLin and Kirsten are on the RO DBT Senior Clinician team and are approved RO DBT trainers. They are enthusiastic practitioners of RO DBT, stay current with the research and work, and consult regularly with other senior clinicians throughout the US and Europe. Their mission is to provide excellent full-fidelity treatment in a lovely and inviting setting.
Standard Radically Open DBT is a 30-week process, although some clients may choose to work with their therapist a little longer. Clients can choose to work with their therapist in another modality. Please see therapist bios for additional specialties.
