"Without context, words and actions have no meaning at all." - Gregory Bateson.
As a Native "New England-er" and second-generation Italian American, Keri appreciates that our identities shape how and who we are and the role this plays when navigating life's unique challenges. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Keri has worked with people from diverse backgrounds, ages, life experiences, current challenges, and environments such as community mental health and higher education.
Together with clients, Keri utilizes approaches that consider the whole-person, and whole family as well as treatment modalities like Strategic/Systemic therapy, Narrative Therapy, Socio-Emotional Relationship Therapy (SERT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Teens; therapies that support individuals and families to notice and attend to strengths, successes; as well as challenging "stuck" patterns within relationships to work toward unique individualized solutions that bring relief and healing.
