A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit.

As a cognitive-behavioral psychologist, I help clients understand how thoughts directly impact feelings and behaviors. Clients and I will work together to identify the automatic thoughts that accompany feelings such as anxiety, sadness, frustration, and anger. When we're anxious or upset our thoughts are often inaccurate and overly negative. When we start listening to these thoughts we can learn to replace them with more accurate and constructive ones, ultimately resulting in more positive feelings and behaviors.

Relationship conflict tends to impact people, whether you're dating, engaged, or married. Disputes can range from everyday miscommunication to more problematic issues such as infidelity, divorce, or intimacy. If love is not enough to keep you happy, you will need to develop practical approaches to conflict. It's not about if, but when to get the help that makes the difference. I help reconnect broken relationships, distant couples, & loveless marriages. As an out-of-network therapist, I do not accept insurance.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Wellesley using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Wellesley are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Wellesley. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Wellesley

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Wellesley you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Wellesley and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Wellesley or family therapy in Wellesley.
