While Sunrise Residential Treatment Center is known for being a fully integrated and adherent relational Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) program, providing a common language for students, residential mentors, therapist, and teachers, Sunrise views its clinical approach much like a tree with family systems theory as the roots, DBT as the trunk, and all other modalities to meet students' needs as the branches and leaves. It's coupling the relational DBT approach with other modalities of therapy that allows Sunrise to meet students' needs, whatever they may be. This is why they take such care and pride in choosing the clinical team that works with each student. Sunrise looks for clinicians who not only understand the importance of building healthy relationships with their students but also have experience in many other modalities of therapy. One of these clinicians is Jaci Nelson, IMFT-S, Sunrise's Clinical Director at the Fields Campus.
Jaci came to Sunrise with many years of experience providing individual and family therapy, most recently with children and families impacted by poverty, homelessness, and trauma. She specializes in mood disorders, attentional disorders, and trauma and believes that strong and healthy family systems equates to a strong and healthy community. "I am so excited to be a part of the Sunrise team!", says Jaci. "The work the girls do here, with the support of family and staff, will have lifelong impacts. Being a part of something that values the individual for who they are while encouraging growth makes this an ideal experience. I have a love for working with kids and fostering healthy families."
"Jaci's personality is contagious," says Amanda McNatt, Senior Residential Director. "She is so fun, but more importantly knows how to have fun while creating a safe and vulnerable environment for our students and families to have the space to be their true selves." Sunrise is grateful for the work Jaci does to lead the clinical team at the Fields campus and feels blessed to have her experience and passion as they strive to help families make real, life change.
