Joan Groden O'Connell, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Hadley
I have enjoyed working as a psychotherapist for 25 years. I am a family sytems oriented psychodynamic clinician with a wide range of treatment approaches.I treat families and individuals experiencing transitions, loss and trauma, as well as depression, anxiety, behavioral or relationship problems. When I work with youth, parental involvement is requested. Treatment can be fluid to include family, sibling, parent/child and individual therapy. I use play and art therapy with children. With all clients, the goals of acceptance, healing and growth occur within a positive and safe environment. I believe that feeling worthwhile and having hope are key elements to mental health.
