Bio & CV

Katie-Lee Weille graduated in 1989 from the Smith College School for Social work. Between 1987 and 1995 she worked as a psychotherapist in a range of settings – including inpatient and outpatient psychiatric units, and a prison – with children and ‘multi-problem’ families, victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse. In this period she developed an interest in working with parents, as well as a sensitivity to the ubiquity of psychological trauma (whether ‘big’ or ‘small’, hidden or overt) in so many forms of psychological distress.

In 1995 Dr. Weille embarked on a PhD program in psychology at the University of London and the Tavistock Clinic. For two years she treated families and parents at the Tavistock, as well as individuals at the Portman Clinic. Since 1997 she has conducted private practice in Amsterdam and been Adjunct Professor at Webster University, as well as providing clinical and research supervision and teaching on a variety of undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate courses in the Netherlands and England. From 2009-2012, Dr. Weille was Professor of Parenthood and Professional Work with Parents at Leiden University of Applied Science. She serves on the editorial board of the Dutch journal of parenthood and professional work with parents.
