Lea Didion        

Clinical Psychologist

Lea Didion is a clinical psychologist in the field of trauma and PTSD. She is an experienced speaker on the topics of evidence-based treatment for PTSD, program development, trauma-informed care, social justice and advocacy as it relates to trauma, and special issues and considerations for traumatized individuals.

Didion has been a practicing clinician for over 10 years in the VA and DoD, and trained in numerous evidence-based and evidence-informed therapies for the treatment of trauma. She is a dedicated and passionate advocate for mental health services for traumatized populations and underserved and historically marginalized individuals. Her work has afforded her the privilege of working with multidisciplinary staff to coordinate treatment and implement programming, and she has built and maintained positive and collaborative relationships with leadership, providers, and staff from all disciplines.

At the VA, Didion championed the formation of comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy services. She built this service from the ground up, advocating for its implementation, collecting data on its effectiveness, and presenting these findings to leadership and to VA hospitals in multiple states. She has also spoken at international trauma conferences and conferences on third-wave therapies as well as at APA. She is also fortunate to serve as her clinic's training coordinator and is passionate about supervision, mentoring, and consultation.

In addition to her work in the VA/DoD, she is a founding co-owner of a collective of psychologists who provide trauma treatment in the community. The Trauma Resilience and Education Center (TREC), DC will be soon available to provide expert care to individuals impacted by trauma. In addition to clinical treatment they are also dedicated to outreach and raising awareness of trauma-related issues and enhancing training opportunities for clinicians. Didion also taught in psychology doctoral programs on the topics of supervision and consultation.
