Cadence Team Approach

Our clients benefit from a unique team approach to care.

  • The team is headed by Milani Smith, Clinical Director and CBT Program Director, and Dan Finnegan, DBT Program Director. Dan and Milani provide expertise and oversight on all aspects of client care at Cadence.
  • Cadence has a high degree of therapist collaboration so that each client benefits from the skill sets of the entire team. This includes a weekly Grand Rounds meeting, weekly DBT consult groups and weekly individual meetings with a Director. The therapists are regularly presenting new information and research findings as part of Cadence in-house professional development.
