As Co-Founder of MetroWest Clinical Collaborative, I had always dreamed of opening a facility with a shared consistent vision of whole health with mind & body healing in focus. Starting early in the spring of 2015, Lindsay Brady, LICSW and I combined our vision to create something bigger to serve the Metrowest community and beyond. We both wanted to create a place that facilitates collaboration and good care for anyone we treat. We enlisted a strong group of multi-disciplinary providers who also focus on community, connection & compassion as well. We all provide variety of mental health and nutritional services based on our discipline and run our own private practice within this shared model. We serve as a leader in specialized areas of both mental and physical health. By focusing on the whole person and all of their needs, we offer a wide variety of services with people we trust.
My personal background is full of a variety of roles where I understood people from many different angles in life. I graduated from Lesley University with a Bachelors of Science and a focus on Psychology. From there, I worked in the corporate world at Monster.com for several years while on the side starting small pilot companies. I enjoy so much of business and networking and finding solutions for people, but I knew I always had wanted to help others and needed to continue my journey in another way. I then decided to continue by pursuing my master’s degree. I attended Simmons College where I then received my Masters in Social Work. I worked for many agencies like Advocates, Inc and Walden Behavioral Care. Over the years I have had experience in hospitals, community agencies, schools, police stations and much more. My background includes years of crisis evaluations, eating disorder treatment, complex relationship dynamics, anger management, and many other areas of mental health. My work has exposed me to guiding others to a path of recovery however that is defined by them.
Since starting my role in my own private practice in February of 2015, I focus on helping clients find their voice, strengthen their self-concept and become advocates in their own lives. The approach I take to counseling is varied depending on the client’s needs and the presenting concern. I do incorporate a strong emphasis on improving communication and connection in relation to others and most of all, with the inner self. I have also started to give talks in the community about mental health issues. Some of them have been at Regis College, St Bridget’s School in Framingham MA and Simmons College.
I use formal techniques such as: MCBT (Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and Sand Tray Therapy (Art therapy). Former clients say they can tell that I really care deeply for their lives and needs. I also just believe laughter and using ones’ self to help another is a vital part to healing. Many of my clients would tell you that I promote kindness to one’s self, exploration and a drive to change unhealthy patterns.
Starting this vision has been one of the most important steps of my career. I am blessed to be with a group of talented women entrepreneurs who value a whole person with all of their needs in mind. We are thrilled to come together to offer more than just a name, we want connection for every point of treatment.
My passion for supervising graduate students and new clinicians has been a source of my own growth and learning. Supervision between a supervisor and student/young professional is an opportunity grow and expand as the field changes with collaboration while fostering new techniques. In previous clinical roles, I supervised students from various programs such as: Boston University, Simmons College, Lesley University and University of Massachusetts Boston. I believe by educating and creating a healthy supportive and engaging learning environment, we can enable mental health professionals to grow and create for their own futures in the field.
