Education & Experience
I have a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. I have a B.S. from Florida State University.
I am extremely dedicated to this work and my ongoing professional development. Accordingly, I am currently pursuing post graduate education in EMDR.
I meet regularly with experienced professionals in the field for clinical consultation. Additionally, I earn continuing education credits annually to keep myself informed of current research, techniques, and emerging philosophies.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC in the state of Massachusetts. My license number is 11989. Prior to opening The Piller Group, I completed both my graduate and post-graduate clinical experience in a Partial Hospital.
I have clinical experience working 1:1 with adults across many diagnostic presentations: depression, suicidality, self-harm, anger management, ADHD, anxiety, panic, OCD, trauma, PTSD, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and substance dependence.
I also have clinical experience providing couples therapy, group therapy, family therapy, expressive therapy, crisis management, safety planning, as well as collaborative care and consultation with outpatient providers.
My professional career began in the field of pharmaceutical and medical device sales and marketing. I worked in this space for over a decade.
Having a corporate background affords me an opportunity to connect with my clients on a professional level. I understand well the pressures and demands placed on us by our work. As a therapist, I utilize my business background and overall business experience in working with my clients.
