Rachele Ryan

Social Work Post-Masters Fellow

Rachele Ryan is a Social Work Post-Masters Fellow at Boston Child Study Center in Maine, where she provides evidence-based treatment to children, adolescents, young adults, and caregivers experiencing emotional dysregulation, complex trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, and co-occurring suicidal and non-suicidal self-injurious behaviors.

Rachele earned her master’s degree from the University of New England School of Social Work. During her graduate studies, she worked at Boston Child Study Center-Maine, where she provided Emotionally Focused Academic and Executive Functioning and Dialectical-Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills coaching to youth and their families. She also worked at The Center for Grieving Children in Portland, Maine, where she co-facilitated peer-support bereavement groups for grieving children, teens, and young adults. Prior to her start in social work, she earned a B.A. in English and American Literature from Sarah Lawrence College and an M.F.A. in fiction writing from Warren Wilson College.

Rachele is currently credentialed as a Licensed Master Social Worker, Conditional Clinical (LMSW-cc) in Maine and is accruing hours towards her independent social work license under the supervision of Samuel Hollander, LCSW. She believes that therapy should be grounded in a collaborative relationship between therapist and client and emphasize the client’s self-determination and existing strengths.
