Elizabeth Driscoll, PhD, is a psychologist in private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has served as a Clinical Director and as a staff psychologist at residential and day treatment facilities for eating disorders. Throughout her career, she has worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families in hospitals, schools, and community mental health settings treating eating disorders, depression, anxiety, loss and grief, trauma, and PTSD.
Elizabeth lives with her rescue pooch, Maggie, in Cambridge and loves to spend her free time romping in the woods, hills, streams, and beaches of spectacular New England. When Elizabeth first learned about This Is My Brave through the article in O, The Oprah Magazine, she knew this was something with which she needed to be involved. Professionally, Elizabeth sees the detrimental impact stigma associated with mental illness has on her patients every day. Personally, Elizabeth is a survivor of a mental illness diagnosis and knows first hand the role shame and stigma play in recovery. She is excited and humbled to be a part of such a BRAVE mission.
Jyoti Daniere, LMHC, has been a psychotherapist for over 25 years and specializes in the treatment of eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and recovery from sexual assault trauma. She enjoys working with individuals, families, and groups. She is thrilled to be working with Elizabeth Driscoll and TIMB to bring a new show to Boston in 2017. She hopes to help empower individuals with mental health issues to tell their stories with their “whole heart” and help eradicate the shame associated with mental illness. In her spare time, Jyoti is an actor and the mother of two wonderful daughters, Isabelle who is the Professional Relations Representative at the Renfrew Center of New York and Sophia who is a first year student at UCBerkeley.
We are so excited for you to meet our Boston Storytellers!
The show is Friday, October 6th at 7pm at the Mosesian and tickets are on sale now!
