Professional statement

Brooke Huminski is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with a specialization with eating disorders, perfectionism, compassion fatigue, ADHD, and life transitions. She enjoys and has extensive experience working with students (college, medical, graduate). She also works with adolescents who are struggling with eating disorders as part of a collaborative team. Brooke sees clients in-person or virtually in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Brooke has specialized training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy that help clients cope mindfully with difficult thoughts, behaviors, and stressors. As the work deepens, Brooke uses integrative approaches to help clients address core patterns that can impact relationship with self and others. This can include identifying inner values and spiritual/existential themes. Brooke’s approach is deeply compassionate, strengths-based, and non-judgmental. Brooke is also trained in Family-Based Therapy for Adolescent eating disorders.

Brooke is a Teaching Associate at Brown University Warren Alpert Medical School where she is a psychotherapy supervisor and guest lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. Brooke has worked and trained in a myriad of medical and mental health settings over the past ten years including McLean Hospital, Miriam Hospital, Butler Hospital and Women and Infant’s Hospital. Additionally, she has provided individual, family, group therapy, and meal coaching at Walden Behavioral Care, an eating disorder clinic. She operates from a Health at Every Size® model/non-diet approach and brings her experience as a recovered professional to the healing relationship. Brooke received her Masters of Social Work (MSW) at Boston College and Bachelor's in Public and Community Service at Providence College.

Brooke's office is conveniently located on the east side of Providence, within walking distance from Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, and Johnson & Wales University.

Message to clients

I believe it takes an enormous amount of courage to reach out for help during a time of change or crisis. Whether it's the first time you're seeking therapy or you're returning and seeking a fresh approach, I'm glad you're here looking for the right fit. I work well with clients who are seeking an intuitive, dynamic, and trauma-informed approach. With gentleness and directness, I help clients uncover their hidden strengths, reduce challenging behaviors, and build supportive relationships.

I've developed a sub-specialty in working with high-achieving women coping with ADHD (diagnosed or not yet diagnosed) and perfectionism. This combination may also come with disordered eating and requires a specialized approach. I enjoy connecting my clients with providers who can also assist in the diagnosis and treatment process for ADHD as well as eating disorders. Oftentimes, ADHD in women can come with associated feelings of shame and grief. Working on these areas in therapy can lead to greater self-acceptance and ease of living. Even if you've compensated for many years trying to "do it alone", together we can come up with ways to improve your works/school life, sense of self, and overall quality of life.

Professional endorsements

"Brooke, since I have known her, has always been curious, enthusiastic, non-judgmental, and she has a great sense of humor. She was eager to establish a professional relationship with me and to bounce ideas off each other, seek consultation, and share resources. It was a pleasure to work on numerous cases with her. She truly embraces case conceptualization from a biopsychosocial model, and she takes a holistic, warm approach to helping her patients. She is eager and interested in forming the best possible comprehensive plan for each patient. She learns alongside the patient, growing with them to best serve them. I was very impressed with her interest in empirically-supported treatments including Dialectical Behavior Therapy for eating disorders, and she was a pleasure to talk to while we were colleagues (so much so that we stayed in touch). Always hungry to learn more, Brooke was a pleasure to work with as a colleague and a friend. I’m thrilled that she now works in private practice, and I regularly refer to her without hesitation for clients with eating disorders, anxiety, perfectionism, depression, or life transition challenges."

"Brooke has extensive experience in the eating disorders community. She is on the cutting edge of the field always up to date on the most recent study. She clearly knows what is and will be happening in the field. I refer clients to Brooke for ADHD, trauma, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and divorce challenges."

- Beth Rollins LICSWJanuary 2017

"I highly recommend Brooke to work with clients with eating disorders and trauma. She has a uniquely insightful and gentle approach to her, but is also able to hold a firm, but loving, boundary for clients in need of this. I am consistently impressed be her dedication to the field and thoughtful approach to treating emotional wounds. Brooke is very enthusiastic about her work and it radiates into her interactions with clients & colleagues. She is making strong connections in the eating disorder community and I can see her being very successful!"
