Matianna Baldassari is not currently accepting new clients.
Are you a perfectionist at heart? Do you believe others must like you for you to be okay? Does it feel like you are always crazy busy, but something is missing? People-pleasing can make you feel stressed and burned-out. The rollercoaster ups and downs can make you feel upset and even a bit angry when you are usually a very nice person. My clients learn new ways of looking at things so that they feel better about how they treat their friends, family, and how they treat themselves. Together, we focus on the issues you want to work on in therapy and maximize our time in session.
I specialize in working with young professionals on understanding what's happening in their lives, but we also talk about how to actually make changes, which can be the most important part. If desired, my approach can combine traditional talk therapy with tools from mindfulness and yoga.
Clients say they love my warm and welcoming approach. I offer afternoon, evening, and weekend teletherapy appointments. I am out-of-network; however, you may still be able to use your insurance to cover a portion of my fee. Ask me to verify benefits & we will take care of the paperwork for you. Set up a free phone consultation to see if it is a good fit!
