I am a licensed psychologist and founder of Bain Health and Wellness Center. I offer evidence-based treatments for children, teens, and young adults suffering from anxiety, OCD, depression, trauma, autism, disruptive behaviors, and other mental health concerns in English, French, and Haitian Creole. I have expertise in assessing and treating youth affected by autism and educating caregivers of children with disruptive behaviors. I also assist organizations in developing new clinical services and increasing the accessibility of quality, culturally-sensitive mental health services.
I have worked in outpatient, inpatient, and primary care settings, specialty care pediatric services, and traditional schools providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Behavioral Parent Training (BPT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE), and more.
After earning my B.S. in Psychology from Nova Southeastern University and Ph.D. in Combined Counseling and School Psychology from the State University of New York at Buffalo, I completed a clinical internship and post-doctorate fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), where I was awarded the Psychology Internship Pre-Doctoral Training Award for Excellence. I then joined URMC as an Assistant Professor, where I created and coordinated clinical, educational, and administrative projects and provided individual and group psychotherapy. I relocated to Massachusetts to become Clinical Director at the Baker Center at Waltham, a program of Judge Baker Children’s Center affiliated with Harvard Medical School. There, I led the clinic’s development, supervised a clinical and administrative team, managed clinical as well as fiscal operations, delivered evidence-based treatment, and cultivated external relationships with the community.
