About Diedre

Professionally, I am an art therapist and mental health counselor, specialized in the treatment of eating disorders and trauma. Also, I am writer and researcher. I have over two decades of teaching experience, including teaching computer programming to middle school students while in college, being a substitute teacher in various subjects for a public school system in Massachusetts, and teaching English language conversation and literature to college- and high school-aged students in Italy.

I have an A.B. in Studio Art (specialized in Painting and Printmaking) from Stanford University, where I minored in German Language. I, also, received an Intermediate level certificate from the Goethe Institute in Berlin. I have a B.A. in Italian Studies from John Cabot University, where I minored in Creative Writing. I have M.A. in Expressive Therapy and Mental Health Counseling from Lesley University, and I have worked for over a decade in assisting high school and college students to create and implement effective personal and vocational plans.

My major goal in teaching or assisting anyone is meeting the person where they are psychologically, understanding his or her goals, and developing a individual plan, unique to that person, to achieve those goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

I am mental health counselor and art therapist who has worked primarily with adolescents and young adults. In so doing, an important aspect of my work and studies has been vocational skills development. I have worked with many young adults to assist them in going on to graduate studies and in choosing career paths.

College Counseling

I am a mental health counselor and art therapist who has worked exclusively with adolescents and young adults. As a group therapist and individual therapist, I have taught vocational skills development. I have been a mentor for several students, from middle school to college students. I have worked as a program coordinator, academic director, curriculum writer, and substitute teacher. I have studied in the United States and abroad as a full-time student, as well as participated in other overseas studies programs.
