New social worker joins Department of Psychiatry
Delgado earned her Bachelor’s degree in Administration of Human Services at the University of Massachusetts Boston and her Master’s degree in Social Work at Boston University. In her most recent position she was a full-time senior clinician at the Martha Eliot Health Center where she was responsible for providing individual and family therapy to children and young adults. Her target population encompassed clients from diverse socio- economic and ethnic backgrounds. She is committed to providing services that are not easily accessible and has sought training in EMDR along with other more contemporary modalities. She began training in Attachment, Self-Regulation and Competency (ARC) as part of her involvement in trauma work.
Delgado says, "I am hoping to be able to integrate my expertise in EMDR, in addictions, in ARC to an adult client population." She goes on to say of her new role at BWFH, "I’m very excited to come back to addictions, to come back to couples and individual work with adults in a place that offers a comprehensive approach, including emergency room services, inpatient detox, etc." She also hopes her Spanish language skills will help the department service a more diverse population.
Outside of work, Delgado is a busy mom, along with her husband, to an eleven-year-old son. She says, "I like to be active with my son. We do a lot of crafts and outings together." She also finds time to practice yoga, go to the gym and enjoy walks in the Arnold Arboretum. She’s interested in mindfulness, meditation, acupuncture and acupressure tapping.
