Mary Madrigal

Mental Health Counselor

Level 1 EMDR Therapist

Insurance Accepted: Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Harvard Pilgrim, United Healthcare, Allways & Optum


EMDR Training Facility: EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program

Advanced EMDR Trainings Completed:

  • Coming Soon!

Specialties:  Substance Use Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Depression, Anxiety

I graduated from Fitchburg State University with my Masters in Mental Health Counseling in 2022.  For the past year I have been working with adolescents and young adults in detox/early recovery and their families.  I strongly believe recovery is possible when one can identify and treat the root of their addiction.  I also have experience working with adolescents with autism spectrum disorder and their families to help them reach their full potential.  Depression and anxiety are often co-occurring among both populations adding to the importance of treatment to address and alleviate these symptoms.

In addition to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), the therapeutic modalities I use in my practice are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and Strength-Based Therapy.

I strive to develop and maintain a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship with all my clients.  I value getting to know my clients and their hopes for therapy.  I would love to help you identify what is preventing you from achieving your goals and finding peace.  From there, I would love to help you work through these challenges so that you can live your best life.
