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.

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.

Maureen Sullivan (MS, MPH, MA, LMHC) was born and raised in the Boston area but has lived, worked and traveled extensively. After graduating from Boston College, Maureen joined the Peace Corps and served in West Africa. This pivotal life decision led to graduate work at the London School of Economics, work in the Federated States of Micronesia and American Samoa as well as continued studies leading to master’s degrees in both Public Health and Counseling Psychology. Most recently, she lived and worked as a therapist in Hawaii within close proximity to Volcanos National Park.

Maureen is described as very “down to earth” and relational in her therapeutic approach. Her clients find her to be extremely warm, friendly and approachable.

In her approach to counseling, she draws upon the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution focused therapy and person-centered therapy. Central to her practice is the foundational belief that each person possesses the internal ability to heal and overcome life challenges with the appropriate help and support. The role of a therapist is to connect and create a supportive alliance towards the purpose of helping clients reach their goals and thrive.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience in the field. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Brandeis University and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University. I work to create a safe space and tailor treatment to each client’s needs.

Lindsay Veillette, LICSW

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I received my MSW from Fordham University in 2016. I have experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings with a variety of populations including adults and adolescents with serious mental illness, mood disorders, substance use disorders, family and relationship issues, trauma backgrounds, individuals in crisis, and those navigating general life changes and stressors.

My approach to therapy is holistic, collaborative, and client-centered with a strong focus on strengths. I firmly believe in meeting individuals where they are at in the present moment, and I acknowledge that progress is not always linear.

I incorporate elements of Mindfulness, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy into my practice with a common goal of empowering individuals to advocate for their needs in all facets of life.

I believe that we are never finished products and there is always room for personal growth. My aim is to partner with clients on their journey to self-determination in order to lead happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives.
