Jennifer Simon, JD, LCSW
I completed my Masters of Social Work at Smith College School for Social Work. I received my post-masters training at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Adult Psychiatry, where I practiced individual adult and group psychotherapy for six years before transitioning into private practice. At Kaiser, I pursued intensive DBT training through Behavioral Tech, co-facilitated DBT skills groups throughout my tenure, and co-founded a fully adherent Linehan DBT program. Working at Kaiser also afforded me experience with a wide range of client concerns and gave me the opportunity to work with clients from a wide range of socioeconomic, cultural, and relationship backgrounds.
Psychotherapy is my second career. Before pursuing my MSW, I practiced as a corporate transactional attorney at two Bay Area law firms after completing my JD at Harvard Law School. Prior to my legal career, I received a BA in psychology from Rice University. I chose to return to those roots and pursue a career in psychotherapy because I felt called to assist others with their emotional, psychological, and life challenges, rather than with their legal challenges!
I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of California (LCSW65973). For more information, please visit my website: https://www.jennifersimonlcsw.com/
Karen Yeh, JD, AMFT
Like Jennifer, I transitioned from law to counseling psychology. As lawyers, we were trained to think analytically and figure out how to get the best results for our clients while operating within a set of rules. I was drawn to DBT Skills in part because it helps teach clients to do just that - to get the most out of life while operating within this world that we all live in, which can often seem confusing and overwhelming.
I have been trained in DBT through Behavioral Tech's Comprehensive Foundational Training and DBT Skills Group Training and have been a member of a DBT Consultation Team via The Bridge Training Institute.
