I'm a licensed psychologist in private practice in downtown Newburyport where I see adults age 18+ for individual psychotherapy. Please visit my website http://www.drtownsend.net to learn more about me. I practice short- and longer-term individual therapy, with a focus on self-worth and relationship concerns, adjustment and transition struggles, and family and career dilemmas. I also meet with people who want to increase their capacity to manage anxiety and depression, prevent perfectionism and unproductive habits from controlling their actions and self-perceptions, improve their quality of life, and generally feel more fulfilled.

I've been described as warm and accepting, an excellent listener and direct in a gentle way, as well as effective at helping people take positive steps in their lives. My wish is to help you feel safe and comfortable to share what you most need to explore.

My theoretical orientation is integrationist, drawing on interpersonal, psychodynamic and mindfulness-informed approaches. I like to focus on people's strengths and natural resilience when facing challenging choices and circumstances. A key factor in helping my clients meet their goals is the trusting, respectful therapy relationship that we build together.
