Our Board of Directors
Doreen Alling, LMSW-cc, LADC
Doreen first started her journey at HETI in the Summer of 2019, when she took Motivational Interviewing (MI) as a clinical elective at the University of Southern Maine. Taken by the practice of compassionate conversations, Doreen committed to immersing herself in MI; completing a year-long group practicum. Doreen then engaged in an additional concentration year internship working closely with Stephen learning the spirit of MI through coaching and training others, and submitting recordings for coding. It is her passion to bring the healing power of MI to people through direct contact in her work with men and women experiencing incarceration, substance misuse and trauma, as well as through community organization- One compassionate conversation at a time.
