About the Speakers:

Elizabeth Schulte, LCSW

She is an MSW graduate of DU GSSW, an LCSW in the State of Colorado, and she is currently working towards her PhD in Clinical Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work. Liz has been a clinical social worker for over 15 years, and has been in private practice since 2012 working with individuals across the life-span. She is the Chair of the NASW-CO Practice Standards Committee, a volunteer committee that drafts guidelines for social workers in Colorado to help them navigate clinical, ethical, and statutory issues in their practice, and is currently the President of the Colorado Society for Clinical Social Work. As part of her private practice Liz supervises first and second year social work interns, supervises social workers working towards licensure in Colorado, and provides post-licensure consultation to social workers in support of their clinical practice. She is also a former accountant and consults with mental health professionals to help them organize the financial aspects of their private practice.

Balin Anderson, LCSW
"Building a Solid Foundation for your Practice"

Balin Anderson will be talking with you about the logistics of starting a private practice. She's wonderfully detail-oriented AND she has started a private practice in two different states, so you can bet she knows her stuff!

She graduated from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. Following five years of clinical social work in the field of reproductive health care, she launched her private psychotherapy practice in New York City. Balin’s clinical focus is providing psychodynamic and psychoanalytic therapy to adolescents and adults. She is also trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Balin is an adjunct faculty member at GSSW @ DU, where she teaches in the mental health concentration. She serves as the Membership Chair for CSCSW and as a member of the joint NASW and CSCSW Practice Standards Committee. Balin is excited to share with you some of her tips for establishing a solid foundation for your clinical social work practice.

Bethany Raab, LCSW
Ethical Use of Social Media in Private Practice

Bethany is a DU GSSW graduate who has been in private practice in Denver for 7 years. Her clinical focus is adolescents and their families. She also provides supervision for social workers pursuing their LCSW. Bethany is an Education Committee Co-Chair for CSCSW and Co-Chair of the NASW Private Practice Group. She loves social media and all of the good and interesting content it has to offer the world. (TBH, she gets infuriated by it, too.) She's the voice behind the CSCSW Facebook page and Instagram account. She is excited to talk with participants about how to ethically incorporate social media use into a private practice.
