The Guidance Group is happy to welcome Justine Fredette to our team as a clinical intern for the Spring Semester in 2020 under the supervision of Dan Maki, MA, LMFT, LICSW. Justine is currently earning her Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Connecticut.
While using a person-centered approach, her focus is on the strengths of each individual or couple. Using a variety of modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, psychodynamic, and mindfulness-based approaches, Justine works to create a safe and supported atmosphere that encourages healing and change.
As a former Division 1 athlete from the University of Connecticut, Justine has a strong passion for athlete mental health and sports psychology. She has experience working with amateur, college, and professional athletes and uses her prior experiences as a helper and an athlete to make therapy a safe and comfortable place for her clients.
In her free time, Justine enjoys working out, playing hockey, and exploring the outdoors.
Justine's specific areas of clinical interest include:
Anxiety ADHD Behavioral Issues Coping Skills Depression Grief Life Transitions
