She also facilitated social skill research/development/ implementation in selected New Haven Elementary schools through Yale University. Following her graduate training, she stayed on as a full-time clinician at Branford Counseling Center and went on to work at Boys & Girls Village in their extended day/intensive outpatient program, which served children and adolescents at-risk in New Haven county. She stayed connected to Branford Counseling Center, treating all demographics through individual, family and group work before starting her private practice and joining Grove.
Becky has been trained in Trauma Affect Regulation and The Nurtured Heart Approach. She has a psychodynamic orientation, that is relationship focused/strength based. She is passionate about working with young people and values how Grove provides a holistic approach to treatment that addresses important aspects of a young person’s development and care.
From a young age, Becky became aware of the complexity of the human experience and how certain things are and are not in our control. She always felt drawn to a helping field where she could aid in supporting strength & resilience, facilitate healthy connection, and provide a caring and supportive ear for people to feel seen and heard. She feels honored to do this work and is inspired by the people she works with. She believes in the therapeutic relationship as a great vessel for change when there is mutual respect, autonomy and care.
Becky enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She is an animal lover and enjoys reading, swimming and being with friends.
