I have had a Buddhist meditation practice for many years, and often work with patients who practice or are interested in meditation practice.
I am an experienced, warm and insightful therapist. I work with adults across the life span. I am an active therapist, and I listen carefully. I am interested in supporting patients to understand themselves, their feelings, relationships, behaviors. I find that this understanding, along with the space to experience feelings, leads to the possibility of growth and change. I work with men and women, facing a broad range of personal, work, and family issues. I have often worked with people in their 20's and 30's who want to establish a successful intimate relationship.

Hello, my name is Jason and I am a licensed mental health clinician specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, and other mood/thought process issues.

(New clients welcome...) Things happen, and they happen all the times, whether or not we are aware. We act out when we don't get what we want and when we get what we don't want. Sometimes we act out in ways that are self-sabotaging. We get overwhelmed at work and in relationships. All this is normal and yet limits one's potential to be successful and happy.

BEST way to reach me is EMAIL. I believe emotional healing happens in a therapeutic relationship. I offer relation-oriented, emotion-focused psychotherapy to clients who are interested in relieving symptoms, identifying patterns, resolving conflicts, building satisfying relationships, finding fulfillment in life, etc. My work is trauma-informed due to my passion for trauma treatment, especially that of developmental trauma, and an understanding that traumatic experience is existentially inevitable in human life. I also enjoy helping young professionals, first-time parents, and new immigrants navigate challenging life situations.

Over the years as a therapist, I have found that the common theme amongst my clients is not their diagnosis or their problems but their deep desire for Calmness, Clarity & Connection. They seek therapy because something is not right in their lives and they want to find a better way. The ingredients to healing are found in these three elements. Whether it is through individual therapy, teen support/skill building, The c3 Method or even within the audience of my public speaking events, my clients engage in a process that leads them away from their struggles to a place of Calmness, Clarity and Connection. ​

My practice focuses on major transitions in the lives and careers of accomplished men and women. My clients seek better work-life balance, a greater sense of satisfaction from intimate relationships, and support in pursuing their own unrealized dreams. I approach these questions in a direct, interactive manner that draws on 35+ years of experience. My methods include coaching strategies and interpersonal psychotherapy models. I work with individuals, couples and families. I also work with business partners and teams. I am deeply interested in working with people during times of transition when they are looking to create new options for themselves, in their relationships.

Jyotsna specializes in sexual health for couples and individuals, an area she became more interested in midway through her career, when the limitation in sexual health competence in the field of general mental health work, especially for couples, troubled her. She thus decided to pursue training and hone her skills. It soon became a passion and a calling, and she has turned her focus since in understanding the various intersections of sexuality with culture, race, religion, gender, disability, age, and of course, sexual orientation. She respects and draws from both the traditional and the contemporary clinical models in her work.

CALL Office: Adults & Seniors: Individual & Couple: The imprint of trauma is psychological & somatic: long after the events are over, the body continues to respond as if danger were ever present. My professional mission is to bring this understanding of trauma to Adult and Seniors, as a psychotherapist, looking for answers to healing traumatic events. The key to healing is not just knowing what happened but transforming how mind, body, & soul still remember it. Trauma can reveal itself via depression, anxiety, despair, conflict ,lack of resolve, patterns of repetition ,worn out "survival mode defenses" from earlier times.

I specialize in working with couples (and individuals) who are interested in self growth and who want an interactive therapist who can help them get to a better place. There are myriad reasons why people decide to go to therapy; common themes are marriage or relationship problems, parent-adult child dynamics, grief, life changes, anxiety, self esteem, unfinished business, spiritual crises, even existential angst. My clients may be new to therapy or old pros, but they all want more from their therapist than just a listening ear: They want insight and understanding. They want guidance and hope. This is what I offer to my clients.

Life hasn't gone the way you wanted it to. You long for a better past. Instead of moving on, like others seem to be able to, you spiral into the same dark patterns. Over and over again. You don't want it to be this way, but you don't know what else to do. The days are tiresome, and some mornings you don't even want to get out of bed.

You may be wondering if therapy can help you feel better or help you find a path that works better than the one you're on now. With a therapist with whom you feel comfortable, hopeful and understood, the answer is often 'yes'.

I work with adults and adolescents who face the usual and unusual problems that arise from living, and who wish to deeply explore what matters most in their lives. As a lifelong student/teacher/writer on mindfulness and psychotherapy, many clients wish to draw on mindfulness practice and understanding in our work together. However, I am well trained over the course of many decades in a breadth of techniques, and draw on a range of approaches as we collaborate on the question of "what works" in therapy and life itself.

What type of Newton 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 Newton?
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.
