Professional statement

Sally Craig received her MSW from Rhode Island College School of Social Work. She has been a clinical therapist at Butler Hospital for all ages and mental health concerns, and a group facilitator for bariatric surgery patients at Care New England before starting her private practice in Providence, RI.

Sally has particular expertise helping clients work through anxiety, depression, concerns with overeating, adjustments in life (starting school, relationships, new job), and uniquely, infertility and reproductive counseling. She primarily uses a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic Therapy.


Message to clients

Talking about the issues, the stumbling blocks, and the obstacles can make them more surmountable.
