Psychotherapy, as I define it to my patients and students, is the collaborative inquiry between patient and therapist into the patient's patterns of interaction and patterns of expection. This kind of study leads to greater personal and interpersonal freedom, which allows for the reduction or the elimination of symptoms. Psychotherapy can be of brief duration or an extended enterprise focusing on long term difficulties. The decision on which form of psychotherapy to undertake is usually based on an evaluation of 1 to 3 sessions, where a treatment plan is developed. I am interactive in my approach.

As a cognitive-behavioral psychologist, I help clients understand how thoughts directly impact feelings and behaviors. Clients and I will work together to identify the automatic thoughts that accompany feelings such as anxiety, sadness, frustration, and anger. When we're anxious or upset our thoughts are often inaccurate and overly negative. When we start listening to these thoughts we can learn to replace them with more accurate and constructive ones, ultimately resulting in more positive feelings and behaviors.

Anxiety can be debilitating for many of us. It makes us uncomfortable and avoid things, and we end up not participating in life the way we want to. My approach is to teach you the necessary skills, so that anxiety does not drive your life. I use the most current evidence-based treatments for anxiety. The CBT skills you will learn in treatment with me are well researched and have been shown to help people with anxiety improve their lives. I have focused on treating anxiety using CBT techniques throughout my education, training, and career.

'What is a life-worth-living for you?' is the question I ultimately hope to prompt each client. Not only will we develop skills to reduce depressive/ anxious/ other psychological distress. As part of treatment, we will draw from your hope, values, and motivations to amplify behaviors, growth, and actions towards a life-worth-living. Indeed, "one answers to life, by answering for life; by being responsible." (Frankl, 2000, p.29)

Inevitably, life presents challenges and difficulties which can take many different forms. Sometimes people seek out therapy for very specific reasons: perhaps a major life transition has become overwhelming, or certain patterns within a relationship are starting to take a toll. Pressures in a particular setting, whether at school, at work, or at home, may be feeling too difficult to navigate alone. Other times, people come to therapy with less certain goals, maybe feeling unsure or confused about where their life is headed, maybe simply wanting something more. It’s not always easy to answer the question, “What brings you here?”

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 02481, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 02481 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 02481 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 02481. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 02481

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 02481 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 02481 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 02481 or family therapy in 02481.
