LEARN MORE ABOUT ME
Meet the Chief Clinical Officer (CCO) of Verge Therapy: a licensed independent clinical social worker committed to reducing mental health suffering and providing quality supervision to clinicians. With social work licenses in both MA and FL, KJ earned her Master of Social Work degree from Boston College in 2015.
Her vast experience includes working at a DBT residential program at McLean Hospital, the McLean-Franciscan Adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit in Brighton, Boston Children's Hospital Emergency Department, and serving as the Clinical Director at a residential therapeutic school for neurodiverse young adults and adolescents.
Her passion lies in providing queer-affirming care to individuals, couples, and polyamorous couples, reducing the stigma around mental health and decreasing mental health symptoms to reduce suffering. She aims to support the team of clinicians at Verge Therapy to continue to grow, utilize sound clinical interventions, and ensure that their work is trauma-informed and culturally sensitive.
In her free time, she enjoys reading fiction, soaking in the sun, and spending time with her two rescue dogs.
