Hello! I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Massachusetts with over 10 years in the field and have worked with a wide range of clients including those experiencing depression, anxiety, self-esteem concerns, life threatening illness, relationship issues (family, friendship, couples, etc), stress, parenting concerns, life stage transitions, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, and infertility and pregnancy. I have coached many people through their processes of individual growth and who are looking to create a better life space for themselves.
As a Roman Catholic, I have always been drawn to the life of Mother Teresa. I have tried to live my life holding onto her words. I teach the same and feel kindness is at the core of our existence. I have always cared about those less fortunate and "rooted for the underdog" so to speak. As my desire to help others in more ways grew, I felt Social Work become my calling.
My counseling style is kind, interactive, and down to earth. I have a fluid approach catered to your needs taking from humanistic theories, system and strength based theories, and using mindfulness and traditional talk therapy. I work with your wishes and desires for treatment while making sure we have a plan for change and growth because I know your time and efforts are valuable.
My experience has allowed me to work across the United States as well as internationally and with a wide range of ages, backgrounds, diagnoses, socioeconomic classes and the barriers that come with each. At my core, I believe in treating everyone with empathy, kindness, and compassion and that my faith is my guide.
I am grateful you are here looking and hope to be the best fit for you!

Bridget has used several methods and tools to enhance my counseling experience. I love the fact that she sends me at the end of any communication a quote which inspires me to stop, to reflect, and seize the day.
She was very caring, provided many points of flexibility and openness too. I really appreciated her willingness to listen and our phone chat was excellent!
Bridget has helped me in so many ways. She has helped me to learn so much about myself that I was completely clueless to before I started our sessions. She has supported me through my most difficult days and through my happiest ones. When I’m struggling with my anxiety attacks or simply just need to vent to someone, I know she will always be there and respond efficiently. She’s helped me turn my life around for the better. Thank you, Bridget!
So far working with Bridget is helping me ask some tough questions and understanding some things about me. This system of therapy is all still new to me and I'm still getting to know Bridget and how she work. I'm getting to know her method and how she's asking questions so I'm working through them. It's is different than the conventional therapist because it have it up and down. Not everything is easy to understand thru email and need more explanation with a therapist if they were here in person.
Bridget is really good with responding back and giving me insight with her professional experience. I do like that I can send her an email and talk about my challenges and will get an answer back within the same day. The reason for that is I suffer with agoraphobia and have hard time going to the therapist. When I finally able to attend therapy I struggle to find comfort at the office to not get anxiety just sitting there. Some days I can never really talk about a certain problem because I start having a panic attack during our conversation.
So this have its own positive impact on me because I write more freely and express myself more openly thru an email than in person. I have shared more information with Bridget more than my therapist that I been trying to work with over 2 years. And I think I only seen her about 10 time each year. And still she never able to get me to talk about my bf or my struggle with him. We never gotten that far.
