Are you a preteen, teenager, or young adult dealing with the challenges of growing up? Do you feel exhausted and undone by navigating all the pressure, uncertainty, and demands? Or are you a parent wanting the best for your child but unsure of how to support them during these critical years? Would you like your family to get along better or feel stronger together? Youth and parents looking for help in managing complex mental health issues, family discord, parenting challenges and the stressors of growing up will benefit from working with an experienced psychologist who specializes in child/adolescent and family wellness.
Do you feel overwhelmed, disconnected, and insecure? Has your relationship been wounded or lost its spark? Are you feeling dissatisfied or stuck with some aspect of your life and not sure how to make a shift? Has becoming or being a parent turned your world upside down? Life is full of transitions and stressors and it’s hard to stay in tune with ourselves, our partners, and our family members as we grow, change, and deal with stress. Sometimes we all need a safe space to process, reconnect, and heal – to speak our pain, communicate what we need, and be supported as we tap back into love and connection.
Life is hard, and we all need support to navigate the many stressors that come our way. As a social worker with 10 years of experience in the mental health field, I have worked with clients experiencing a variety of challenges, including anxiety, depression, interpersonal conflict, and maladaptive coping skills.
Anxious? Experiencing a new upcoming change or life transition? Trying to manage everything in the midst of a pandemic? What if I told you that you can manage all of those feelings and experiences and come out on the other side feeling confident, empowered, and at peace. My role is to be a nonjudgmental and supportive, and to hold the space for you to express, feel, and grow. If you are motivated to take the first step towards healing and seeking that person to be your support, we may be a good fit.
For 20 years, I have enjoyed helping adults and adolescents make changes in their lives, using an interactive, emphathic, and supportive style. My approach is eclectic, fitting the treatment to the individual. When it's helpful, I use techniques of meditation, mindfulness, and progressive relaxation. In my psychotherapy practice, I treat depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, relationship issues, and life transitions (such as new parenting, empty nest, elder care and grief).
Hello potential client and fellow human. I hope you are proud of yourself for taking steps toward improving your life experience. As the owner of Sapphire Counseling, I am dedicated to creating a trusting and safe environment where we can work together in identifying and achieving your therapeutic goals. I pride myself on being authentic, empathetic and skillful at building solid therapeutic relationships with my clients. I will work with you and do my best to make you feel at ease. While I will meet you where you're at in your process, I will assist you in challenging yourself. Change is scary and so is feeling stuck.
I currently am not taking on any new clients. Honest, Real, Change. This is how I would define my style of counseling. I received my specialty training in cognitive-behavioral therapy and I am well versed in motivational interviewing. I have developed a style that is down to earth, which focuses on working with the skills that an individual already possesses, while developing the abilities they need to bring them to the next level. I also help solve issues in the "here and now" while working on other skills that can/should be develop in the future. Reaching out can be hard to do but it is important.
**I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** As a social worker with over 20 years of experience, I provide strengths-based therapy to individuals (adults and children) and families experiencing a wide range of issues, including anxiety, self-esteem, self-confidence, social skills, learning difficulties, interpersonal, and life transitions (etc). My approach to therapy is warm, nonjudgmental and collaborative. I personalize treatment to meet the needs of each unique individual, using a range of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral, Family Systems, Solution-Focused and Play Therapies.
My approach to treatment is mostly cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and draws upon mindfulness based practices. Over 15+ years in crisis management have allowed me to develop an approach that focuses on creating solutions.
My approach is humanistic and existential, addressing both immediate and ultimate concerns of living. If you're feeling stuck and want real change in your life, for conditions such as depression, anxiety or resolving a past trauma, there's no way around taking risks and challenging established behaviors and belief systems. By moving out of your comfort zone, going deep inside yourself and far into the larger global community, I can help you. Using a variety of complementary techniques--you can learn to undo long-standing, maladaptive actions/reactions or negative perceptions that stand in the way of a more rich and meaningful life.
*CURRENTLY MY PRACTICE IS FULL AND I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*. My unique counseling experience allows me to work with a variety of issues and lends an eclectic treatment approach. I am able to help a broad and diverse range of clients due to my various clinical training and over twenty years working as a mental health counselor. These experiences have broadened my clinical expertise to a variety of modalities and approaches - all unique to the individuals with whom I work.
I am only accepting clients for weekday morning or early afternoon appointments. I have no after school or evening availability at this time. My goal is to assist clients in their management of life’s stressors and challenges. I assist clients in developing coping strategies and problem-solving skills. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a multifaceted approach to treatment. I work with children, adolescents, and adults.
I believe we all have a desire to find and express our authentic selves and find joy and meaning in the relationships we choose. Among the most important aspects of relationships are the sense of safety, connection and pleasure that flows from what we do together. I understand how much life and family stress, unmet needs, past trauma and broken trust can lead to disconnection and disillusionment. Much of the work I do is with people who long to reconnect and be seen by one another with a fresh outlook on life and love. I also meet with people at the end of their relationships and work with transitions.
(She/Her) I offer counseling for adults with mood and anxiety related symptoms. I am genuine, honest, and enthusiastic in my care. My hope is to help you with positive change and growth. I am willing to be an active team member as long as you too are honest, open minded, and willing. I graduated from Lesley University 2014 with a Master’s Degree in Expressive Therapies: Dance Therapy with a specialization in Mental Health Counseling. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Massachusetts, and a Registered Dance Movement Therapist through the American Dance Therapy Association.
Hi, I'm Steve Freilich. I'm an unusually down-to-earth psychologist. My greatest strengths are my broad repertoire of interpersonal and analytic skills, insights, strategies, and a very empathic style that will help you feel very much understood and comfortable sharing anything. I help you achieve long lasting relief from emotional pain and/or help you solve significant life problems complicated or magnified by emotional obstacles (yours or others). Over 90% of those who start to work with me return for more sessions - many for a while.
I am not accepting new clients at this time. I have years of experience collaborating with adolescents, young adults and millennials up to age sixty. These days life is about transition. Change is tough and so are you. High School, college, independence, parenting, job changes, it's all happening now. You don't have to suffer, be overwhelmed and over stressed. With support you can tackle issues and create change. You are unique, and so our approach will be unique to meet your needs in a way you are comfortable. I also have significant experience advocating for families and collaborating with school supports.
Presently, my schedule is full and I cannot accept new couples. I have a passion for helping couples and families work through difficulties and help everyone realize their strengths in order to work better together. My specialty is couple's therapy. I have conducted various marriage seminars through the years to help couples better their communication skills and provide tools to help couples turn toward each other and work through difficulties instead of turning away. My hope is that each couple will rediscover the qualities, uniqueness, and values that first caused them to want to spend their lives together.
Hello, welcome to my practice. In our time together, my goal is for you to experience yourself as a unique individual along with understanding that there is nothing uniquely wrong with you. People are often judged for having problems. if you use insurance to pay for sessions, therapists are required to give you a diagnosis, indicating what is wrong and what needs to be fixed. This is not the way I look at people. There is no one who is free from suffering, which is not even the problem. Instead our "struggles" stem from a lack of compassion towards ourselves.
I specialize in the treatment of children, adolescents, and their families. I strive to provide a safe, respectful, nurturing, and non-judgmental environment where people can express themselves and explore their personal challenges. I use an integrated therapeutic approach, drawing upon evidence-based treatment interventions that are tailored to the individual's style and needs. I offer parent management training and collaborate with schools. It is important to me to provide treatment that allows for my clients to recognize their strengths, gain control of their behaviors, and reach their full potential.
** I am full at this time and currently not taking on new clients. Please send me an email to contact me. Hello and welcome to my Private Practice. I understand how difficult and scary it can be to take this first step and reach out for help and support. Life sometimes is not easy and we find ourselves struggling with issues such as trauma, parenting, marital conflict or unexpected loss. My style is oriented around growth and strength. I am here and ready to help.
