Caitlin Piekarski

I graduated with my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Boston College, and have experience working with clients of all ages. I have had the opportunity to work in both clinical and school settings, focused on helping those who are facing struggles with anxiety, depression, life transitions, attention and behavioral challenges, loss and personal growth. My goal is to provide an empathetic and validating space for my clients, helping them become empowered to work towards their self-identified goals and to access their inner strength and resilience.
