Bethany Kregiel, LMHC
Bethany earned her master’s degree in mental health counseling from Boston College. She has experience working with adults in residential treatment settings helping those struggling with eating disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), among other issues.
Bethany takes a strengths-based approach to therapy and works from the understanding that all clients are doing the best that they can with the current skills and resources available to them. She believes in the power of genuine human connection and utilizes humor to bring authenticity to the relationship. Bethany’s therapeutic approach encourages clients to develop awareness of negative thought and behavior patterns and to learn healthy ways to cope with difficult emotions.
Bethany is interested in working with people experiencing a variety of issues. While she specializes in OCD and eating disorders, she also has experience working with trauma, depression, substance abuse, and relationship issues. She utilizes a variety of therapeutic techniques, including ACT, CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic theory. Bethany is specifically trained in using exposure-response prevention (ERP) for OCD, social anxiety, and other phobias. Additionally, Bethany approaches the treatment of eating disorders from a Health at Every Size (HAES) framework.
Bethany is interested in social justice and continually considers the various intersecting identities that her clients bring with them when they enter therapy.
