No matter what our life's story is, we can heal. My approach is holistic, integrative, and non-judgmental. In my work, I focus on the integration of the mind-body-spirit which allows us to visit every component that makes you who you are. This approach brings forth a greater sense of self - a self that has always been there, but may just need a little dusting off and given compassion, kindness, or acknowledgement.
I am the owner of Wakefield Psychotherapy Associates and have been a practicing psychologist for the past 24 years. I have a warm and informal style which I believe serves my clients well. I use techniques that best fit the needs of my clients. I have an active, directive approach in my clinical work. I do not hesitate to give direct feedback and advice to my clients, and will give homework to clients when necessary. At the start of therapy, I prefer to see clients weekly or once every other week in order to establish continuity in the therapy.
My work with my clients is active and collaborative. I see adults, adolescents, and younger children in the context of family therapy. I provide individual, couples and family therapy. I have 30+ years experience working with people to enhance their lives and relationships, problem solve, and make decisions. I use a CBT approach; also, EMDR to treat trauma, anxiety, and fears. I am currently doing telehealth. Please visit www.nylamcculloch.com. I am not currently accepting new clients.
Most people seek therapy when they are struggling with an issue that they are unable to resolve. I look forward to helping you recognize your strengths and validate your feelings in a safe therapeutic environment. I have a great deal of experience with anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. I love to see my clients grow and blossom as they learn to challenge themselves to be the best that they can be. My past background includes working in a clinical hospital setting for ten years. I provide support to individuals to resolve challenging and difficult situations.
My approach to therapy is focused on building a trusting relationship with the individuals I work with. Attending therapy for the first time can be a scary and a vulnerable experience, but my aim is to provide a safe and welcoming place for one to talk about their concerns. I strive to create a space that feels safe, grounding and compassionate. From this space I believe individuals can improve coping skills, communication skills, improve relationships, establish healthy boundaries, set goals, decrease levels of depression and anxiety along with much more.
My areas of expertise are the treatment of anxiety, depression and relationship issues in adults. I particularly enjoy counseling millennials. As a warm and understanding therapist, I have successfully worked with clients with a wide variety of life problems to help them decrease distress and lead fuller lives. I provide individual, couple, and family therapy, using a combination of cognitive behavioral and insight oriented techniques.
In order to maintain your safety, we are currently providing counseling services via telephone and face to face video sessions. If we are unable to answer your phone inquiry, please email and we will get back to you within 48 hours. I help my clients challenge the inhibiting beliefs that fuel self-defeating feelings and behaviors. My focus is on guiding people to develop greater emotional intelligence. My approach is humanistic and emphasizes the good in all of us. My goal is to impart powerful decision making and communication tools that you'll find yourself using constantly in all areas of your life.

It takes strength to admit that life has become unmanageable, that your previous ways of coping are less effective than they use to be. The first step to healing is acknowledging that those negative thoughts and feelings have been impacting your ability to lead the life you want. The next step is to ask for help. While asking for help can be overwhelming, I provide clients a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental atmosphere in which to explore their path to healing. I offer a strength based and person centered approached to treatment. I will work with you to meet you where you’re at and help you reach your wellness goals.
Psychotherapy is a journey of discovery and growth. “We know what we are, but know not what we may be” William Shakespeare wrote. As a psychotherapist I strive to facilitate that journey by creating a safe, comfortable and respectful environment that allows for free expression of thoughts and feelings. My psychoanalytic training provides me with the expertise and skill to look deeply into the experience of each client and to work together on overcoming the obstacles that stand in the way of one’s happiness and satisfaction in life. I have over 12 years of experience.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor specializing in the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. I can assist you in adjusting to life transitions, handling relationship difficulties, and enduring work-related stress.
I am a licensed mental health counselor whose work focuses in Existential Philosophy. I strongly believe that it is each person's responsibility to find meaning and joy in their own lives. I believe that individuals begin to utilize their own strengths and coping skills to lead a more satisfying life. Through our past events and hope for the future, people can focus on their present and begin to better appreciate their own daily experiences. My philosophy about counseling has helped people dealing with depression, anxiety, and people struggling with substance abuse.
We all have ideas about how we "should" feel, what our life "should" look like, and how we are "supposed to" deal with emotional pain. You're ready to put your past behind you and get on with the future you want, but you're finding old stories, old ways of thinking and old habits are holding you back. You’re experiencing signs of anxiety and depression, you're stressed, feel ashamed, and wondering - is this normal, am I normal? Maybe you've been using alcohol or marijuana to dull the pain and pass the time, but that's starting to cause problems too.
I have been working primarily with adolescents and children for over 20 years. I have a very direct and realistic approach that has great success working with the most challenging teens, especially. I also welcome parents who are having difficulty with this challenging transitional time in raising teenagers as well. In addition I work with couples to promote positive communication to strengthen and build positive relationships.
It takes strength and courage to seek help and to pursue therapy. If you are reading this you have made a decision to start living the life you so deserve and I am excited to help guide you through this journey. Are you tired of the way things are but aren’t sure how to change them? Whether you are struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, or navigating a new phase in your life, I provide a safe, supportive, and non judgmental atmosphere in which to explore your path to healing and growth.
