Jane St. John (MA, LPA, LCAS, CCS)

janeEach day I am honored to serve the clients of Delta Behavioral Health and work with the Delta team. My mission is to work with others to build a life worth living.

College included a major in psychology and psychological research at the Kennedy Center located at George Peabody College in Nashville. Later, I worked in a public hospital, where I became an assistant to the clinical director. Upon re-locating in North Carolina in the early 90’s, I started graduate school in UNC-Wilmington’s graduate psychology’s charter class of 1994. I graduated with a master’s degree in clinical psychology, with a specialty in chemical dependence. Shortly thereafter, I received my license as a Psychological Associate (LPA) and also as a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS). In 2009, I added the Certified Clinical Supervisor credential after a 2 year internship in the specialty of supervising those providing services to clients with chemical dependency problems.

Prior to opening Delta, I worked at The Oaks Behavioral Health Hospital at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in both their dual diagnosis program and the screening department before transferring to the Partial Hospital Program (PHP). There the PHP program was redesigned to be based on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills modules, an evidence-based program that was developed over 3 decades by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., at the University of Washington, Seattle Campus, for the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder. Much research on the effectiveness of DBT had accumulated, and supported DBT as an effective approach in the treatment of depression and anxiety, of eating disorders and addiction, and of schizophrenia, among other disorders.

Recent reforms in the North Carolina mental health service delivery system resulted in the formation of Delta Behavioral Health, PLLC. Delta is a successful private practice composed of a collection of providers from multiple disciplines. At Delta we work together to provide assistance to persons with mental health needs from all walks of life in building a life worth living. My time now as the Member/ Manager (CEO) of Delta is divided between administrative activities, providing individual psychotherapy, and leading DBT skills groups in Delta’s licensed PHP and Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program (SAIOP).

Richard Brice (MSW, LCSW)

DickMy name is Richard Brice. I was born and raised in a small village in Upstate New York and moved to North Carolina a few years ago.

I am licensed in New York and North Carolina to practice as a Clinical Social Worker. My undergraduate work was completed at LeMoyne College where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology. I went on to obtain a Masters’ Degree in Social Work at Syracuse University School of Social Work with major concentration in Individual and Family Counseling studies.

I have thirty plus years of experience as a psychotherapist, mainly being employed in mental health outpatient settings, both private and public. My clinical experience has involved treatment of children, teens, young adults, middle-aged adults, and seniors. My clients have included men and women who are under situational stress, people having problems with drugs and alcohol, those who are in the midst of sorrow and grieving, people suffering from panic and high anxiety, some with deep depression, individuals haunted by voices and visions and many who feel just plain overwhelmed.

My counseling involves a partnership in which we work on achieving the right balance in a person’s life—a reparative restructuring of thoughts, feelings and behaviors. In my counseling I offer you a place of peace and safety—a place where you will never be judged, and a place of acceptance and respect.

Benjamin Baldwin (PsyD, LP)

BenjaminIn 2003 I graduated from the California School of Professional Psychology, the Los Angeles campus, with a doctorate in Multi-Cultural Clinical Psychology. I have had the fortune of working in a variety of clinical settings while in graduate school. My dissertation focused on how to incorporate emotional intelligence into an elementary school classroom. My post-doctorate internship was at Vista Del Mar working in the child and family program. While completing my post-doctorate hours I developed a small private practice. In 2005 I moved to Wilmington and received my license in clinical psychology.

I believe above all else that safety and trust are the foundations for effective treatment. My areas of professional interest include depression, existentialism, and overcoming trauma. Depending on the presenting problem I will employ either a cognitive or psychodynamic approach. It is not uncommon in my practice to combine some facets of both these styles. I primarily work individually with adults, however, I will see a limited number of children and couples. At Delta Behavioral Health we utilize a team approach which allows the patient, if he or she chooses, to access services from multiple clinicians.
