About

I understand the importance of developing resilience-to-change in order to effectively cope with major life transitions (marriage, birth of a child, loss of a loved one, divorce, retirement, new job). Without such resilience, life can feel overwhelming, self esteem becomes precarious, and mood can dip dramatically. Through my warm, direct, highly international approach, I collaborate with my clients to address the behaviors that continue to cause pain. My books, teaching and supervision have provided training for 100s of other clinicians to help their clients to feel more empowered in relationship and to fulfill their potential
My active approach offers an understanding of the negative impact of the past while actively tackling current self defeating behaviors. This effectively engages Couples (in both traditional and nontraditional relationships), stressed executives, ACOA's, and parents dealing with a grown child’s failure to launch.
As former Director of the Substance Abuse Outpatient Clinic at McLean Hospital, I have worked for more than 35 years with successful professionals who have had personal histories involving alcohol abuse, or who grew up in families where an alcohol problem took its toll. I have also helped scores of family members intervene to help a loved-one get treatment.

Marsha Vannicelli's Groups

ACOA Professional Women

Professional Women in Transition (late 20s to early 60s.) For high functioning women who tend to the needs of others before attending to their own and who find that issues from their family of origin are often replicated in current relationships, influencing communication, authenticity and intimacy.The group helps members learn more about their feelings and about their own needs and how to get them met to form more satisfying relationships.

More about this group

Supervision/Consultation and Practice Development

For enhancing clinical skill, adding clinical perspective, and for development of a successful private practice. Practice development consultation for senior therapists, as well as those in early and mid career can prevent burnout and maximize professional satisfaction. Consultation with a senior clinician who has developed a robust and rewarding professional practice can help move a struggling clinical practice to new heights of success.

More about this group

Senior Life Transitions Group

Interpersonal therapy group for high functioning adults 60 and older. Focuses on senior life transitions (including retirement, relationships with grown children, medical issues) and enhancing meaning, support and emotional connection in later years. The value of group for this population has been underscored by Dr Robert Waldinger, director of The Harvard Study of Adult Development. One of the longest-running studies of adult life, this study tracked the lives of two groups of men for 78 years and shows that meaningful personal connections benefits health and well-being.
