It’s not easy trying to live our best lives, feeling like we're just barely holding it together - striving for peace, healthy relationships, and finding some semblance of balance during these chaotic, unsettling times. The technological world we live in makes disconnection worse - sometimes even causing disassociation and emotional shutdown which can lead to depression, anxiety, disassociation, and even addiction. A world that sometimes lacks human connection, emotion, and empathy, thereby negatively impacting who we are, who we want to be, and most importantly, our relationships with others.

Im ready when you are! Therapy can only be successful when there is solid relationship between the client and the therapist. I believe, building trust, rapport and unconditional care for a client are necessary for success to manifest! We have to be willing and ready to do the messy work. As your therapist, I also have to be ready. I have to be ready and capable of containing all of what comes up in therapy. A little about myself, I go by "Dori", I am part of the LGBT community, latinx and have been doing this work for about 7 years. I graduated Boston College with a masters of clinical social work in 2015.

What type of West Springfield 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in West Springfield?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
