Annie McCall began practicing DBT as a skills trainer in community mental health in 2003.  She spent several years at the Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics as a research therapist and skills co-leader on Marsha Linehan’s team.  In her private practice, Annie co-founded Youth and Family DBT in Seattle, and provided individual DBT therapy to adults and adolescents, as well as leading multi-family DBT skills groups and parent coaching workshops.    

Annie has been teaching DBT in professional settings since 2009, and has had the opportunity to consult with providers across the spectrum of treatment contexts: outpatient, inpatient, residential, forensic, day treatment, and schools.  Annie’s experiences as a high school teacher give her a unique perspective in the mental health field, particularly in coaching skills trainers how to manage group behavior and bring skills to life.

Annie is also a certified provider and supervisor of Prolonged Exposure treatment.  She participated as a therapist in the development of DBT-PE, and has provided training with treatment developer Melanie Harned, PhD.

Annie is a DBT- Linehan Board of Certification, Certified DBT Clinician, and volunteers for the certification board scoring work samples.
