Anthony Aguirre began working as a Mental Health Counselor at McLean Hospital’s Division of Psychotic Disorders in 2017, shifting to Clinical Residence Counselor in 2021 at McLean’s 3East Residential Program for adolescents. Through working at 3East, Anthony has expertise in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for adolescent populations struggling with Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders, and Borderline Personality Disorder.

 

Anthony also attended American University in Washington, DC where he graduated with a degree in International Relations from the School of International Service and a certificate in Community-Based Research in 2020.

 

After working as an educator from 2020-2021 for elementary school students during the height of the pandemic, Anthony began his education as a social worker at Boston College and is set to graduate with a Masters in Social Work (MSW) in 2023. Anthony’s focus at BC has circled around working with Latinx populations in the Boston area, as well as serving people with a variety of mental health conditions. 

 

Anthony has a strong passion for strength-based and solutions-focused therapy. As a former athlete, he has a strong belief that athletic coaching and therapy-based coaching are aligned through their ties in habit forming, encouragement, communication, and constructing tools to be the best version of one’s self.
