Professional statement

Lizelle Cline has been a social worker since 1991 and is currently self employed as a therapist to indiviudals from late teen years. She offers an eclectic approach that is evidence based and utilises primarily Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as Self Compassion and Somatic approaches.

Lizelle was born and raised in England where she earnt a BSW at Lancaster Univeristy, and later completed graduate studies at University of Leicester. Lizelle began her career in England as a Child Welfare Worker and emigrated to California in 2002 where she has had a rich and varied career. Lizelle has worked in Treatment Foster Care, as an Adjunct Proffessor at Cal State East Bay MSW Department, at California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, as well as two hosptials in the Intensive Outpatient Clinics and Inpatient Facilities.

Since 2008 Lizelle has gravitated towards offering individual therapy and now does this exclusively online. She has found that the ease of access has been benifical for people who might otherwise not seek services.

I work well with young adults, also men, and those who are going through transitions. I am an ally of LGBTQ community.
