LifeWork, a private practice in St. Louis County, seeks licensed clinicians who are interested in providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to adults, adolescents or pre-teens in both individual and group settings.

LifeWork is working to expand access to DBT throughout St. Louis and committed to challenging systemic racism and oppression in our practice.
