Education & Prior Work Experience
Coady is a licensed psychologist who has been practicing for close to 30 years. Over the course of her career, she has worked in a variety of settings which include wilderness therapy, inpatient psychiatric units, community mental health centers, therapeutic boarding schools, as well as private practice. Coady possesses a depth and breadth in working with individuals of all chronological and developmental ages. Such experience provides her with an appreciation for the varied needs and challenges of each client. Coady received her Doctorate of Psychology from The Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology. In addition, she pursued training at The Boston Psychoanalytic Institute and engaged in her own psychoanalysis which was, by far, the most powerful learning endeavor she has ever experienced.
From a very young age, Coady was encouraged to be curious about the world, about others and about herself. Her parents modeled the importance of exploring the meaning of her and others’ beliefs and behaviors. This curiosity, which was instilled from an early age, continues to inform her as a person, as a mother, and as a psychologist. Coady considers her patience and her sense of humor as important. Lastly, she values humility above all other traits. Coady is ever grateful to everyone and to every experience that has fostered this awareness; especially her son, Ketch.
Coady loves to ski! When the mountains are not covered in snow, she enjoys mountain biking but wishes that the trails were a bit wider and less steep! Being physically active and outside are “musts” in her life. She has a wide range of friends, two old dogs, and a college-age son whom she deeply loves.
