Professional statement

Dr. Janine Galione is a clinical psychologist located in East Greenwich, RI specializing in anxiety, depression, and trauma-related symptoms, including difficulties regulating emotions and behaviors. She has special expertise in working with clients transitioning into adulthood and often works with undergraduate and graduate students who struggle with suicidal ideation. She provides both short- and long-term treatment.

Dr. Galione applies an integrative approach to treatment and utilizes both acceptance-based and goal-oriented modalities, depending on the client’s individual needs. She provides comprehensive psychological assessments, and collaborates with clients to develop a treatment plan that incorporates evidence-based methods, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness practices.

Dr. Galione's extensive training allows her to support clients with a wide variety of symptoms. She cares deeply for her clients, and is best known for balancing warm validation with effective options for behavior change. Working together will also teach you how to think and act more dialectically – taking into consideration both sides of a situation and acting in a more balanced way.

Message to clients

Often times when faced with stressful life situations, people may respond with self-defeating behaviors that ultimately makes their situation worse. Recognizing these patterns and seeking help can be an intimidating first step. I hope to provide a space that cultivates safety and compassion that allows for self-exploration and change. I will approach our work together as a partnership to collaborate on value-based goals, and will work at your pace. While this process takes courage, you will develop the tools to manage painful emotions, live mindfully, and discover healthy ways to cope with life's challenges.
