I am a licensed mental health counselor who has been in practice for over 24 years. In my years of work I have been impressed by the many ways that people suffer through depression, anxiety, shame, and much more. I am constantly astonished and moved by the transformations that I have seen possible doing this work. I have made understanding the movement through such difficult issues a way of life which I can use to help you move through your own pain to a more fulfilling way of being in the world.

I have been a clinician and educator for over twenty-five years and blend these methods in my clinical practice. My training encompasses a number of diverse content areas, such as clinical, developmental, family and substance-related issues, all of which has helped enrich my understanding of the challenges that life can present. I believe that people have greater capabilities than they are aware of. My role is to collaborate with you, not tell you what to do or how to live. I treat all of my clients with dignity and respect and seek active collaboration.

I guide people to create positive change in their lives, and understand this is often a difficult and overwhelming process. My focus is to assist people with creative problem solving, to stay goal-oriented, and to ensure you feel validated and truly heard so you may reach your goals and move from "stuck" to empowered. I use multiple approaches, such as CBT, DBT, narrative therapy, and mindfulness. Achieving balance in one's life is a skill, and by using different modalities (art, visualization, and sound). I adapt interventions to meet your individual needs.

I view therapy as a conversation that puts you in touch with your inner voice and guides you in using its wisdom to make changes. I am warm and down to earth, and I use humor to create a space where you can be yourself while exploring new possibilities for your life. I offer a collaborative and culturally-sensitive approach to helping clients find joy and meaning in their lives. This can happen by navigating a life transition, healing from trauma, resolving a relationship challenge, or managing depression, anxiety, and stress.

**** Alert: I am currently full and not accepting new clients. **** I work primarily with adults who are struggling with emotional or relational issues. Intellectual understanding of a problem may not be enough to produce change. I try to listen deeply and help people integrate their strengths, values, and emotions in new ways. Many of my clients feel stuck or defeated in certain areas despite doing well in other domains of life.

Are you wondering why you feel the way you feel? Are you noticing that your own thoughts, feelings, and actions are no longer serving you? Do you feel overwhelmed, depleted of energy, confused, lost?

The premise of all of my work is that everyone is doing the best they can at any given moment. . If you have any questions, please reach out. You have five seconds before your brain tries to talk you out of it! :)

Everyone deserves to experience joy & fulfillment in life & relationships, including you! At the foundation of my approach is a strong connection between two people that is based on mutual safety, trust, & genuine care. Within this relationship, I am my authentic self by bringing my warmth, dedication, & quirky personality that often puts folks at ease & enables them to more compassionately understand their true selves, strengths & imperfections in all. Through this process of self-exploration, people I work with learn to more honestly attend to & express their emotions, which leads to greater self-acceptance & consequently freedom from self-doubt & low self-esteem.

A working machine is comprised of many cogs and gears that must interlock seamlessly in order to function. Our minds are not all that different. One faulty belief can throw our whole center off balance. That is why counseling can be beneficial. Gaining a new perspective is the same as getting a realignment. Counseling can be a life-altering journey as it offers a judgement-free atmosphere to explore our deepest fears, sorrows, and triumphs. The sharing of these experiences can open our minds up to new ideas and perspectives that we may be struggle to uncover on our own.

Hello and welcome. My name is Matt Stella, and my goal is to reconnect you to the wisdom and depth in your life that make all problems workable. In fact, the worst symptoms and problems that we wrestle with often hold the seed for growth and transformation. Working with adults, couples, and men's groups, my life’s work is to facilitate transformation out of all forms of suffering. Part of my work is to serve male survivors of sexual abuse or assault. (See MenHealing.org) When needed, I use EMDR to address and heal the effects of trauma, abuse and neglect for adults of all genders.

Judy Garland said it best: "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else." I help clients with depression, anxiety, self esteem, "stuck-ness" and relationship issues; and specialized concerns with sexual and gender identity, illness & loss. I see every instance in our lives as an opportunity for evolution. I believe in the search for insight, but also developing practical tools for change. I believe in the value of a good laugh, but also keeping ourselves honest. I believe in the importance of hope and integrity, but also managing expectations & resentments so that we can flourish.

Balance. Communication. Boundaries. Three simple words that are not that simple to implement in our lives. Within my practice I believe in maintaining a compassionate and supportive environment. As a clinician, I value looking at a client as a whole person. I find utilizing your strengths, while looking at the systems in which you live is the key to successful treatment. Throughout our relationship we will examine the systems in which you live and learn together how to find balance, establish health communication and set boundaries. Office offers free parking and is a 5 minute walk from Salem Commuter Rail.

Hi! I'm Jennifer McAdoo and my speciality is working with young children and their families around a variety of concerns, including but not limited to anxiety, trauma, grief, ADHD and behavioral concerns. While I primarily work with children ages 2-6, I do work with older children, teens and adults on a case by case basis. I have some availability to work with families within my Salem location, however, the mode of therapy which I practice and accept more frequently is home based therapy (i.e I come to you and therapy is completed within your home) For home based therapy, I will travel to towns within the Merrimack Valley area.

Over 30 years of experience has taught me a lot about how to best help the people I see. In my work, I try to listen, with empathy and respect, and to understand what has happened that has brought someone to my office. Clients often find that being able to talk freely in a safe, confidential relationship gives them relief and helps them to develop a clearer sense of the challenges they are facing. Together, the client and I identify the important stressors and conflicts and work on developing strengths and strategies to help cope better.

You seem to have it all together to everyone around you; however, you can't seem to shake that feeling that something just isn't right. You feel "stuck" and unable to move forward. Maybe it's your anxious thoughts. Maybe it's a big life change that just happened, or is on the horizon. Maybe it's just that you're not always the biggest fan of the person you see in the mirror. You've finally made the leap to look for someone to explore this with, and you're ready to do "the work." You look forward to the day when you can be comfortable in your own skin and have freedom from negative thoughts and emotions.
