    My name is Jeffrey Ayotte and I am a father of two and a husband.  I have been a licensed mental health counselor (#5959) in MA since 2005.  I have extensive training and expertise in the treatment of children and adolescents who have mood disorders, behavioral or achievement problems.  I have provided clinical services to children and teens with mental health needs in several settings.  My treatment with families and individuals is based  on  cognitive behavioral theory, trauma informed care models, and eclectic evidenced based strategies.

    Early in my career I worked with children and teens providing educational counseling I a residential treatment setting.  I was awarded my Masters of Science Degree in Counseling Psychology from Fitchburg State University in May of 2002.  During the subsequent 3 years I developed bio-psychosocial evaluations, provided group, individual and family therapy for adolescent boys in a group home and independent living program.   I became a Site Director of an outpatient clinic and provided treatment to children, teens, and families in a clinic, school, and home based setting for an additional 3.5 years. I directed development of a "Family Center" model for YOU Inc. outpatient services that is exceptional in its scope and method of service delivery.  I then returned to residential services as Assistant Division Director for a campus of programs servicing children and adolescents at STAR, BTR, & residential levels of care.  

    I have been extensively trained in trauma informed care, cognitive behavioral treatment, JSI treatment, loss, substance use, and family conflict.  In conclusion, my years of clinical experience serving children, adolescents, and families with complex mental health needs has provided me with the experience and skills to help you or a loved one.
