“A mind is like a parachute, it only works if it’s open”. – Frank Zappa
Areas of Interest: I enjoy working with a broad range of different people; I would have to say that troubled youth and their families are the most intriguing to me at this point in my career. I am interested in possibly incorporating home-based therapy sessions within my therapeutic practice. It can be difficult for a family to all get together at once and come in to an office for therapy, I would like to adapt to each family’s needs and do what works for them. Thinking outside of the box and being creative can be beneficial and an effective way to reach people.
Education/Degrees: I graduated from Plymouth State University in Plymouth, NH a semester early, in December 2010 with my Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a concentration in Development and a minor in Sociology/Anthropology. I then continued on right away in taking two graduate level courses at PSU studying Mental Health Counseling. The courses were “Advanced Human Development” and “Professional Orientation, Ethics and Advocacy”. Currently I am a first year student in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Antioch University New England. I plan on continuing on right after my masters and achieving my goal of a Ph. D in Marriage and Family Therapy here at AUNE. I still then want to further my education at Ackerman Institute in New York City and gain some post-doctoral training. I will be ever-learning in the field of therapy; there is always more knowledge to obtain.
Experience Working with People: I learned a lot about myself during these courses and wanted to further my education after working in the field for a year. Within the next year I worked as a Behavior Therapist for Beacon ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) Services. It is a home-based private organization that gives services to children diagnosed with Autism. The age group I worked with was children under 3 and I would see them at least twice a week for 3-hour sessions at a time. I enjoyed this work very much so, and wanted to further my education in Marriage and Family Therapy to work with families with all different types of needs.
Aimee Martelle, BA
Areas of interest: I am really passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. With my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy I would like to apply it to helping military families through their many transitional phases.
Education/Degrees: I graduated Castleton State College with my bachelors in Psychology and a concentration in forensics psychology. I am currently enrolled in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Antioch University.
Previous Experience Working with People: I have always worked jobs where I am a team player. I love working with others and being part of a work related support team. I also really enjoy working with the public. I am a teller at a financial institute and during orientation you are taught to pick up on verbal and none verbal cues that the member may be displaying. I have had some experience in the therapy room because Antioch gives us a clinic to practice in.
Chelsie Whitesall, BA
Areas of Interest: I am really interested in working with adolescents and young adults with eating disorders. I also have an interest in working with couples at all stages, especially those transitioning from cohabiting to marriage. I am a very curious about mindfulness practices and hope to incorporate that into my style of therapy. Outside of the clinic my interests include traveling, crafting, attending concerts, and playing with my puppy, Jiffy.
Education: BA in Psychology, BA in Sociology/Anthropology from Olivet College (Olivet, Michigan)
Experience Working With People: During my four years at Olivet College I was a member of a student organization called Middle Ground. In Middle Ground we acted as mentors to at-risk youth at the Eaton County Youth Facility. We put on different programs to help them build skills they’d need once they were out of the facility such as how write an resume and completing job applications. For the past few months I have been an intern therapist at the Antioch Couple and Family Therapy Institute working with families and individuals.
