Psychologist & Counselor | Newton-Watertown, MA
Dr. Blount is a licensed psychologist offering individual psychotherapy for adults and adolescents as well as assistance for parents with infants struggling with attachment concerns. Her clinical interests include treatment of post-partum concerns, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and trauma/PTSD. Dr. Blount integrates various therapeutic approaches based on what suits each client’s needs best. Attachment theory guides much of her conceptual understanding, and she utilizes cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and relational approaches depending on the client’s needs. She believes that the therapeutic relationship – namely the trust, genuineness, and warmth between the therapist and client – is of most importance in having treatment be successful and is the foundation through which change can occur.

She completed an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship at Lynn Community Health Center in Lynn, MA.
