My ideal client would present solution-focused with a desire to gain insight and understanding of presenting symptomatically and how those symptoms manifested. Their issues, regardless of being situational or organic, should be addressed directly with kindness and acceptance without judgement. The need should be to not only identify and address their current symptoms but also to work towards a more profound understanding of why such symptoms are present and how to create an opportunity for change. The goal should support a progressive change to improve quality of life.

My ideal client would be a middle-aged person who is looking to change and willing to step outside the box. Their goals would be independence and small achievable ones. I enjoy working with anxiety and am open to "between sessions" work/activities.

My ideal client would be an adult looking for ways to alleviate negative impacts in their life. For example, they could be living with anxiety, depression, low self-worth, relationship struggles, difficulty setting personal boundaries, and overall stress. Their goals would be to learn and implement new skills and ways of thinking to reduce negative symptoms. The ultimate goal would be to reduce their negative symptoms by a significant amount (over 50%). They would want to meet for a session once per week and work through their current struggles. They would be open to self-reflection and redirection from me when needed.

I can't say that I have an ideal client, as every client presents with their own unique set of strengths and challenges. I find myself drawn to clients whose lives have been significantly negatively impacted by the systems they belong to. Aiding clients with the tools and resources to work on breaking those generational cycles of trauma or poverty, is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have as a therapist. I truly believe that all clients have the ability to overcome whatever challenges they may be experiencing and achieve their personal goals. My only job is to help them develop the tools to do so.

I do not envision an ideal client; I accept people where they are. But if I had to, this person would be open/honest, eager to dive in, and ready to reconsider their prior notions/ideas and behaviors that have not served them. They would practice the discussed changes in their daily lives and report back on their progress during sessions. I would like to assist you in tackling challenging aspects of your life to help you find balance. I am a naturally empathetic person who truly cares for others' well-being. I actively listen to understand and will provide honest but compassionate feedback.

They might be experiencing anxiety due to life changes and transitions or they might be experiencing symptoms of anxiety for the first time and be concerne as to where the anxiety came from. The client might be processing loss or grief from a loved one or past friendships and or relationships. My ideal client will have needs such as needing to identify coping skills to get through life stressors, assistance with reaching goals.

My ideal client is someone open to the process of therapy. Someone who is willing to show up for themselves, and “put in the work”. My client may be someone dealing with anxiety, depression, or challenges of ADHD, such as Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria. My client may be feeling in a rut or “stuck” in personal aspects of their life. My client may be challenged by different phases and stages of life, by not feeling capable or feeling easily overwhelmed. They want to engage in therapy and work on achieving their personal goals in a space where they are seen, heard, validated and encouraged.

My ideal client suffers from anxiety and depression. These struggles create the inability to function as expected daily. This client needs mood stabilization and the ability to function easier by completing daily routines and tasks with fewer challenges. The client also wants mood stabilization to avoid suicidal ideation, plan, or intent. As we work together on improving mental health, the client's mood will stabilize with less interactive anxiety and depressive feelings of suicidal ideation within the next three months.

I am not currently accepting new clients and do not maintain a waitlist. It’s not too late to write a new chapter for your life’s story, revisit the earlier ones to edit (or abridge) and even rewrite from a place of newfound perspective. As a social worker for more than 10 years, I have worked with a wide range of people in a variety of community mental health settings. Clients can expect a relaxed therapeutic relationship focused on strengthening their interpersonal relationships and soothing old wounds and traumas in creative ways.

What type of Watertown 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 Watertown?
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.
