Adam Schachar LCSW, Founder
A passionate and empathetic professional, Adam has dedicated his career to exploring, understanding, and harnessing the benefits of DBT in the pursuit of better mental health.
Clinically, he has been intensively trained and supervised in DBT by Dr. Charles Swenson, DBT-PE (prolonged exposure) for trauma by Dr. Melanie Harned and Dr. Lorie Ritschel, DBT-A by Dr. Alec Miller and Dr. Jill Rathus (online), TF-CBT (trauma focused) by Dr. Elissa Brown, Coping Cat (for child anxiety) by Dr. Phillip Kendall, and Essentials of CBT/CBT for Depression/CBT for Anxiety by Dr. Judith Beck (online).
