Victoria Cane, Ph.D, LP, Clinical Director of KEBT:
It's hard to believe my journey in mental health work began 22 years ago. I have been lucky to have benefitted from excellent training and mentorship along the way. After years gaining experience in private practice, 2017 saw my dream fulfilled in creating my own practice, KEBT. Although I am transitioning to more supervision and administrative work, I continue to be fueled by my work as a therapist. I take a holistic approach to therapeutic work, using the context of culture, personal development, and multiple dimensions of identity. My general theoretical orientation might best be described as cognitive-behavioral underscored by relational and feminist principles. I also specialize in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and incorporate other evidence-based therapies into my work. Most recently, I am training in Radically Open DBT (RODBT) for issues of over-control and have recently begun level 2 certification in this approach.
In therapy, my aim is to work collaboratively towards client-identified goals. I often incorporate skill-building into sessions in order to help clients with their relationships and learning more effective ways of coping. I enjoy working with a wide range of clients.
My areas of expertise include treatment of eating disorders, the psychological wellbeing of athletes, LGBTQIA-affirmative therapy, issues of over-control and problematic perfectionism, and chronic anxiety/depression.
I have advanced training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and regularly incorporate aspects of DBT into my practice including teaching skills aimed at regulating emotion, learning to validate self and others, being mindful, coping with stress, and actively building the life that you want. I am currently certified as a DBT therapist through the founder's certifying body, The DBT-Linehan Board of Certification. I am currently pursuing level 2 certification in RODBT for issues of over-control.

My commitment is to support you in positive life change in a non-judgemental, accepting
environment. I believe creating a safe space to explore and heal on the path to self discovery is
essential to growth. Through an empathic and collaborative approach, you will gain insight into
maladaptive patterns to better understand your world better to create the life you want to live.
My areas of experience include dual diagnosis (chemical and mental health), prenatal and postpartum issues, anxiety, depression, life adjustments, self-worth, relationships, and grief.
I work with a wide range of clients- adolescents through adults. My approach to therapy is DBT-informed, which may include
mindfulness and emotion-regulation skills, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). My perspective also includes an integration of mind-body connection and wellness through
holistic health including nutrition, exercise, sleep, service, and connection to community.
