Victoria Cane, Ph.D, LP, Clinical Director of KEBT:
It's hard to believe my journey in mental health work began 19 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 buying my own building and opening 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.
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, LGBTQIA-affirmative therapy, university/college counseling, women's issues, mood disorders, and trauma.
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.

Heather Roe, MA, LMSW:
I have been working in the mental health field for nearly 15 years, providing both long-term and community mental health/crisis services. I have always been passionate about people and the human condition and am amazed by the resilience and strength of individuals. I work to help my clients develop skills aimed at decreasing the power of negative emotions and increase the presence of other emotions like joy that are often over-shadowed. I also work to help my clients with mindfulness and acceptance to better navigate life's challenges. In the words of Jon Kabat-Zinn, "you can't stop the waves but you can learn to surf". I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, and mindfulness techniques as part of this process and make use of dlalectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills throughout my work. I am intensively trained in DBT and worked for a decade on a comprehensive DBT team. Although not providing DBT at this time, I work with Kalamazoo DBT as a referral therapist to help serve clients needing CBT or DBT-informed help.
I view treatment as a collaborative effort and provide individualized care that considers the client holistically including strengths and resources to work on improving quality of life as soon as possible.
I am excited to be part of KEBT where I can use my experience in multiple evidence based approaches in a private practice setting. I enjoy working with a wide range of clients- adolescent to older adult. I am LGBTQ affirmative. My areas of experience include depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, ADHD, perinatal, postpartum, and infertility issues, substance use disorders, and chronic pain.
