“Nonpareil (def): Having no match or equal; unrivaled”

A diamond in the rough is worth the effort for the sparkle in the end
— Sally Roesch, M.Ed

Sally Roesch, M.Ed., NCC

RO-DBT Intensively Trained

Sally first learned about PSYCHē while attending Vanderbilt University. Dr. Vaughn was a guest speaker for DBT and Sally learned how PSYCHē therapists refuse to "walk on eggshells" or treat clients like they are crazy, fragile, or that "something's wrong" with them. She immediately knew where she belonged. Her passionate stance of "keeping it real" combined with a calm and relaxed demeanor made her the perfect match for teens with behavioral problems or anyone with relationship distress, mood disorders, anxiety, or impulsive behavior.

She knows her DBT and has taught the skills to both teens and adults in group and individual. Sally has succeeded in helping clients where other therapists had failed and she is a frequent backup therapist-on-call for the toughest situations between office hours.  Learn More...
