Mary Gavin Cantillo
Counselor, MA, LMHC
My expertise includes working with school-aged children, with a special interest in gifted education (having worked at Pine View School for 10 years); children experiencing difficulties behaviorally, socially, academically and families experiencing parenting challenges or changes in the family unit involving divorce or loss.
I understand the joys and challenges of raising children today. Balancing academic demands, extracurricular activities, household responsibilities, relationships and unsettling times can be exhausting both physically and emotionally. I can help you and your family navigate through emotional times, family changes, school or behavior problems in a relaxed, non-judgemental and therapeutic setting. Our mission is to support children, adolescents and families by providing developmentally appropriate and evidenced based therapies to support the academic and social-emotional well-being of the individual both at home and in school.

Divorce is difficult and one of my specialties in my practice along with relationship and family issues. Imagine having a supportive person throughout your divorce journey who will listen without judging, help you see the new path when you don't know the next step and cheer you on when you feel like giving up. I am passionate about assisting both men and women navigate the roller coaster of divorce with clarity, confidence, and class.

As a therapist, it is my task to join with you to tackle your issues of concern. Sometimes these are situational. Other times you have become aware of a pattern or trend that continually gets in your way. The therapist must create an empathetic environment in which you can truly share and be heard. Then, the therapist can offer the insights and suggestions, so you may begin to unravel and solve the problems. It is a process. My work in Boston, Princeton, and Sarasota has focused on creating this environment and giving you the space to find your way.

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?
Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.
What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?
There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.
When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?
When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.
How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?
It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
