About me

Katy Davis is a social worker who specializes in caring for patients affected by trauma and substance use. She provides both one-on-one and group therapy.

In her research, Davis studies ways to reduce intimate partner violence for women living with HIV. She focuses on how stigma, substance use and attachment style (the way people connect in relationships) relate to the experience of abuse. She also studies how HIV clinics and services can support healthy relationships for women living with HIV.

Davis earned a master of social work degree and a doctorate in clinical social work from the Smith College School for Social Work.

At the core of helping people heal from trauma is respect and consistent, caring connection. Our clinic strives to provide that every day.
