Seeking therapy can feel like a challenging step, but it is the first step towards healing and growth. I specialize in trauma treatment, where I provide a safe environment of support and encouragement for all of my clients. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples who are experiencing difficulty with relationships, anxiety/depression, and grief, among other challenges. I provide the opportunity to explore healthy changes to foster overall mental wellness. My therapeutic style encompasses a broad range of techniques, with an emphasis on an attachment and a psychodynamic approach. I believe that clients are the experts of their own experiences. 

I have found that developing an individualized approach is the most effective way in meeting a client’s needs and goals. Let's work together to create the life you want!

I have experience working in a few different settings; schools, non-profit organizations and now private practice. My main priority is to create a strong therapeutic relationship filled with trust and understanding in order to help create positive change with the children and families I work with. Communication is the key to many challenges our children face these days and my office can be a space where open communication is welcomed. My goal is to hold my clients accountable while always having unconditional positive regard for them and their families.

Alison Medeiros, LMHC

Realizing you are going through a difficult time and seeking support from a therapist can be nerve-wracking and a little scary... "Am I going to 'click' with my therapist? Will they be able to understand and meet me where I'm at?" My main priority with my clients is to make them truly feel at ease and understood. I prefer to set small achievable goals- ensuring they can be met and remain hopeful about reaching a larger, perhaps intimidating goal. I am rather laid back in style and believe my clients to be experts of their own lives, needing some support in finding answers to solutions and reaching their goals. I try to keep therapy engaging and fun, while also understanding that sometimes tougher areas need to be explored in order to move forward and have a happy and healthy future.

I have worked with children ages 6-18 and adults (18+). I have experience supporting individuals to increase coping skills, strengthen communication, and process Trauma & life stressors within their lives that have worsened their Anxiety & Depression. Much of my research has been dedicated to treatment for survivors of Domestic Violence. I also am working toward becoming certified in Perinatal Mental Health- where I will be able to better support women and birthing folks through their mental health during pregnancy and postpartum.

Connecting with a therapist can feel like a challenge. I hope to provide a safe and inclusive space for all my clients to feel heard and understood. I believe in exploring each person’s unique strengths while also challenging them to work towards their goals to make positive changes in their life. I practice using a feminist and humanistic lens. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as well as solution focused and psychodynamic approaches to therapy, while always trying to maintain the creativity, flexibility and awareness needed to meet people where they are in the therapeutic process. 

I find that Therapy is most effective when it is a collaborative process. Let’s work together to build a therapeutic relationship that helps you overcome negative life experiences and achieve a sense of wellness and calm.

Amanda Starr, LMHC

There are as many reasons to engage in counseling as there are types of people in this world. Maybe you have to manage chronic illness. You could be experiencing a life transition such as divorce, children leaving home, or loss of a loved one. Symptoms related to depression, anxiety, or a history of trauma or abuse could be interfering with your daily functioning. Often, people have challenges communicating effectively or managing crises with their spouses or their children. Counseling – sometimes quickly, sometimes with patience and time - can help with the process of stabilizing from the effects of these events, as well as helping us to better understand ourselves and where we belong in our families and communities.

Over the last 25 years, I have done home based family therapy in community mental health centers, been both the owner of and head teacher in a successful yoga studio, have provided outpatient counseling in several agency settings (Family Resources in Woonsocket and Jewish Family Service in Providence, RI), and am now in private practice at The Swansea Center for Psychotherapy. This experience has given me a chance to work with a wide variety of clients who come from diverse backgrounds and have differing challenges and concerns. There is no “one size fits all” in this work. Part of the expertise that I bring to the table lies in helping you to identify the tools, strategies and skills that are most effective in either resolving or decreasing the impact of the problem with which you need assistance.
