I specialize in helping men , women, artists, business and trades people, as well as adult children of alcoholics restore diminished or lost connections to their poietic capacity. The word poiesis is from ancient Greek, meaning to make, or to bring forth. In my work, I refer to it as meaning one’s creative capacity to respond to and shape one’s life - as well as one’s capacity to create things i.e. art, woodwork, poetry, a relationship, a mindfulness practice, a career, a garden, etc. When we are overwhelmed, our mental health can suffer, sometimes making it difficult for us to respond to life's challenges in a way that works for us.

Men 's Issues/ male and female adolescent populations and families work through challenges they have in expressing emotion, managing anger, and interpersonal communication.
While specializing in men 's issues, anger management, and adolescent populations, I also work individually with women dealing with anxiety, loss and relationship issues. With an emphasis on strengthening relationships and self-esteem, therapy is designed for people searching for a more balanced approach to working through change. I offer family therapy, have extended success connecting with male and female adolescence whose behaviors have been labeled oppositional or explosive, and work with parents/families who struggle with how to relate and communicate with their teenager and each other.

My entire career has been spent working with teens, particularly young men struggling with issues like anxiety, depression, anger and family conflict.
I understand how difficult seeking help can be for many teens. With over 25 years of experience, I'm able to engage the most challenging young people, so they can get the help they need. I specialize in working with teens who are struggling across multiple domains in their lives (school, peers and family). My approach is both trauma-informed and strength based. I have extensive training in ARC (Attachment Regulation and Competency) interventions, DBT, and CBT. My experience running mental health programs affords me a unique understanding of educational, justice and mental health systems.

My clinical areas of expertise include working with people who feel anxious and/or depressed; male and female survivors of emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse; GLBT people facing a host of life issues; and gay men who engage in compulsive sexual behavior.
Entering therapy is a bold, brave step. Most people who have been struggling have tried everything they know to feel better. Asking for support from a therapist marks a turning point. I offer clients my clinical judgment and attention that is rooted in a blend of Psychodynamic, Relational-Cultural and Mindfulness theories as well as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I integrate these concepts into our work in clear, understandable and practical ways. My clients tell me that they appreciate my real and authentic presence; my gentle, direct and honest feedback; and my engaging and interactive way of talking with them.

Adam Ayala and have worked with men and women Internationally.
Do you feel like your past problems, being cheated on, being left, and being emotionally and sexually abused have completely ruined you for love? Do you feel like no matter what you do you will always be alone in a loveless life or worse, you will settle for a person that's not good for you at all? The real problem is that you haven't made the shifts. When you make the shifts you'll have complete control over who you are with, you will walk away from low-quality people, and you will have defeated your inner dark world that brings you back to trash relationships and into that relationship of outstanding sex that's drama free.

Navigating OCD, anxiety, relationships, and life transitions can be emotionally and physically draining. There is little more frustrating than thinking and behaving in the same ways despite knowing they contribute to these issues and other debilitating symptoms. Therapy is a place to safely explore the thoughts, behaviors, and relationships that are interfering with living a more fulfilling and rewarding life. (more info on www.smithlicsw.com)

The human mind is amazing. At every moment, we are experiencing a complicated mix of emotions, thoughts, sensations, and memories. We notice some of these, but most we do not. Emotions, in particular, are often perceived only vaguely, or they can seem mysterious, foreign, or out of our control. Contemporary neuropsychologists have found that the decisions that we make are much more influenced by emotions, some of which are out of our awareness, than they are by our rational thoughts.

The demands of school, work, family and social relationships can be overwhelming for people of all ages. Societal pressures may add to our stress. We all need support as we navigate the different stages of our lives. We can get stuck, feel very low, or become increasingly anxious along the way. Children and adolescents may express or cope with these difficult emotions with troubling behavior. Parents often feel helpless or lost trying to support their children. Individual and family psychotherapy can help us better understand and manage our emotions, increase our sense of worth and control, and live a more fulfilling life.

While we are fully aware of what is going on in the conscious mind, we have no idea of what information is stored in the unconscious mind. For the most part, the source of most of our problems is stored in the unconscious. I help patients verbalize and get in touch with their unconscious which will lead to a successful treatment. I Work with adults who have been diagnosed with a psychotic mental disorder; patients who are highly functional; however under psychotic medications. I also have experience working with individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, and narcissistic personality disorder.

You keep wondering if you are repeating the same pattern again and again; it feels inevitable and totally out of your control and yet you can't stop blaming yourself. I commend you for holding on to hope, for reaching out. It requires courage and inner strength to look for someone who is trained to listen and help. I have training and experience helping those who struggle with depression, anxiety, memories of trauma, career and relationship difficulties.

Let's think about our thinking. Curiosity and bravery are important aspects of any learning experience and these traits are equally important in psychotherapy. As a psychologist, I encourage my clients to be both brave and curious as we respectfully examine and process poignant thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this thoughtful process, the client is able to grow and gain self-confidence and improved internal emotional regulation. My goal or agenda for psychotherapy is not mine but yours, and I look forward to collaborating with you and bearing witness to your growth.

I am a licensed psychologist who is trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy. Patients who come to me are looking to understand the significance and meaning of their most difficult-to-solve problems—problems like anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relational struggles, and self-harm. They are often patients who have not had success with short-term and/or cognitive therapies, and they have a sense that their struggles signify something more than mere dysfunction—that their problems point to something unique and unknown about themselves.

Welcome!  I imagine you are here because of something that is important to you. Perhaps it is the quality of your relationships with others or with yourself.  Perhaps it is finding a way forward after a disorienting event or transition. Maybe you are simply hoping to feel happier, less worried, and more at ease.  Whatever it is, I would aspire to help you know more clearly what you hold precious and how that can be more fully honored in your life.

What type of Brookline mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Brookline?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
