Hello all

My name is Kimberly Vay and I am humbled to have been elected as the new President of DBT-LBC and will be working alongside Joan Russo, Immediate Past President. I am so excited to work with the DBT-LBC organization in this new role.

Congratulations to Dan Finnegan on his new position as Treasurer. Thanks also to our other Officers – Suzanne Witterholt, Vice President and Henry Schmidt, Secretary.

I am a clinician at Peachtree DBT, located in Atlanta, GA and a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor. As the first DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified DBT Clinician® in the state of Georgia, I take great pride in delivering DBT with adherence to the treatment model. I hope to get to know many of you personally as I proceed in this role as we are all in this together!

I started with DBT-LBC as a volunteer working with the Program Certification Committee and then was elected as a Board Member-at-Large. I remember the day that I contacted Joan about volunteering to be a Program Site Reviewer, without any knowledge of what I was getting myself into.

It was shortly after that when I was assigned my first program to review for program certification. I was lucky enough to be paired up with Randy Wolbert, and it was at that time that I knew DBT-LBC was an organization that I wanted to be a part of, and I haven’t looked back since. Thanks Randy!

I want to send each one of you a heartfelt THANK YOU for your role within the DBT community. 
I send my thoughts and prayers to everyone who has been impacted by COVID-19 on a personal level.

Stay Healthy,

Dr. Kimberly Vay
DBT-Linehan Board of Certification
