Danny Mui, LICSW

Philosophy of Care

As a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, I have found that “meeting the person where they are” to be an important concept in treatment, as we are all unique in our strengths and challenges; to meet you with an open heart and open-mind is one of my main goals; to help you begin to see things you previously viewed as problems, shift into possibilities. I strongly believe that everyone has the ability to grow, utilizing both positive and negative events from our past to move into healthier, more genuine selves. 

I strive to empower my clients to cultivate the life they hope for. Through a collaborative relationship, I will help you develop a greater understanding of your behaviors and how they affect our outcomes, teach you how to communicate openly and choose to use positive coping skills.

Because the process of change can sometimes feel uncomfortable or overwhelming, I invite you in playing an active role in your treatment, our job is not to “fix”, but rather as a guide to find and see the better self that is within you already. To start a journey however, we need to take that first step, no matter how small; we can work on it together.

Gina Paone, LMHC

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with experience working with a range of individuals. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University in Behavior and Health and later received my Master of Science degree at Salem State University in Mental Health Counseling Psychology. I am a certified clinician in the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), an evidence-based approach to working with adolescents and young adults who struggle with substance use. 

My approach to counseling is client centered. I believe it is important to meet my clients where they are at and collaborate around goals of counseling. I have experience working with young children, adolescents, young adults, and families/couples. I have previous experience working in residential settings, as well as intensive services in the home. I find it important to build an alliance with my clients where we can work together, and I can support my clients in making strides towards completing identified goals. I believe strongly in highlighting strengths and keeping a strength-based attitude throughout treatment. I also utilize various techniques and tools such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness during sessions as appropriate. I believe that we are all unique and, therefore, one technique does not fit all.  

I feel strongly that counseling can support us when we are in a difficult place, but also when we are doing well. It’s important to have support from others and be able to continue to make progress so we can always be a better version of ourselves than we were the day before. Set-backs and struggles are all a part of life, change, and success. I am here to provide education, support, validation, encouragement, and new ideas in order to help my clients achieve the success and change they are looking for.

Sally Kiss is an Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts and has worked with adolescents and adults who are looking to address issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, sexual/gender identity, substance use, relationship issues, and life transitions. She graduated from Bridgewater State University in 2017 with her Master of Social Work Degree and graduated from Framingham State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.

When it comes to therapy, one size does not fit all. For this reason, Sally utilizes a strengths based, collaborative style to identify treatment goals and utilizes an eclectic approach pulling from mindfulness based therapies, trauma informed care, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.

Sally’s work with clients is based on building an authentic relationship between therapist and client where the client is able to explore themselves and grow in a non-judgmental and caring environment. Connection is the driving force behind Sally’s therapy because she believes that relationships are where healing occurs.

Danielle Kornacki, LMHC

As a psychotherapist, I believe in the importance of working collaboratively with clients to highlight their strengths while applying problem-solving techniques and providing psychoeducation as a basis for my therapeutic work. I pride myself on my ability to make a positive and meaningful impact in a client’s life while utilizing an empathetic approach that fosters trust.

My approach to therapy is flexible and draws on a broad range of different therapeutic modalities, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, motivational enhancement, and relational.

My previous clinical experience includes providing individual therapy in both outpatient and acute inpatient settings. I have worked with clients who struggle with a variety of challenges, such as those experiencing substance abuse issues, persons living through mental health problems and/or the consequences of a life event such as trauma. In addition, I have assisted clients in navigating relationship conflict, provided support to clients facing major life changes, and helped individuals in working through academic or occupational stressors. I also take an interest in working to address maternal mental health and the challenges faced by women as they embark through motherhood, which includes perinatal mental health, infertility counseling, and working to enhance a client’s ability to cope with stressors associated with motherhood.

I understand that making the decision to enter therapy is a very personal decision and not always an easy one at that. Some of the concerns faced by clients can include not knowing where to start or what to expect from the therapeutic process, dealing with the stigma associated with mental health treatment, deciding if one’s struggles warrant therapy, and evaluating whether they have the time and/or energy to commit to treatment. However, taking the first step towards growth shows courage, inner strength, and a commitment to evoking change. I look forward to the opportunity to hear your story and to help you meet your goals.

Jacqueline Beaulieu, LICSW

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), and obtained my MSW with a focus on mental health from Boston College in 2016. We all have a resilience within that allows us to take on each new day and overcome those challenges facing us. I’m grateful to be a part of my clients’ journeys. Whether this is the first time a client enters therapy, or they have participated in it before, I recognize the vulnerability and strength it takes to ask for help. It is a privilege to work with each of my clients, joining them at where they are, and together taking steps forward. 

I have experience working in residential and outpatient mental health, and medical hospital settings; with diverse civilian and veteran populations. I have assisted clients with OCD and related problems, addiction, anxiety, depression, adjusting to new or ongoing stressors, interpersonal problems, anger management, and grief or sudden loss. I have provided acute intervention when clients were in crisis and supported those who have lived through trauma. 

My approach is to create a compassionate and trusting space, that is non-judgmental, adaptable, and client-centered. I tailor therapy to my clients’ individual needs, incorporating elements of evidenced-based practices such as Exposure and Response Prevention, Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, amongst others. I am committed to remaining educated and informed about front line research and innovative therapies to best serve my clients. 

I understand therapy is rarely, if ever, straightforward. It can be downright uncomfortable, as well as insightful and vitalizing. My goals are to provide hope, some levity when needed, and encourage your personal growth, honoring your resilience. I look forward to getting to know you, learning what brought you here today, and supporting you in your goals.

Wendy Barry, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Wendy Barry is a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner who has over 14 years of nursing experience.  Wendy completed her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree at Fitchburg College, which is now Fitchburg University, in Fitchburg Massachusetts.  She completed her Masters of Science in Nursing at Regis College in Weston Massachusetts. Wendy bases her treatment on the biopsychosocial model and evidence-based practices.

Wendy understands that medication is only a part of the picture within the biopsychosocial model of mental health.  Her practice in medication is "start low and go slow", which is considered a standard of care in psychiatry.  She is a strong supporter of collaborative care and will work with other providers to maintain client's optimal health.  As a prescriber Wendy takes on the role of consult and encourages clients to feel confident in their psychiatric care.  She does this by asking questions, answering questions, and encouraging clients take the lead in their care.

Wendy treats clients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD and bipolar disorder.

Emily Kossowsky is great!

★★★★★
My husband and I worked with Emily for a few months and her guidance had really made a difference in our marriage. In fact, my husband was skeptical about couples counseling initially, but really came to value it after a few sessions; the only reason we stopped was because our insurance changed. Both of us found Emily to be a compassionate and fair listener who recommended concrete tools and practices for us that turned out to be quite helpful.
