Day time openings only (before 12).. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression, Anxiety, Trauma or Relationship Issues. I see adults, adolescents and couples. I'm a graduate from Worcester State College and Assumption. I've completed the Aaron Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy known to be the most effective form of treatment today. We can control our thoughts and emotions or they can control us. There is a world of difference. Therapy is educational and direct with focus on cognitive restructuring and skills building. Clients usually report ease of symptoms in the first few weeks.
Specialities are focusing on all forms of depression, anxieties especially social phobia, worry and rumination, low self esteem, mood disorders, bipolar, schizophrenia in both teens and adults for thirteen years. Five years experience on family, trauma work and grief work after unexpected death or suicide. Eight years on adolescent issues.
I have partnered with a highly effective team of clinicians to open a new group. Each has their unique specialties from children to seniors, all spans of life are covered. Family support and psychoeducation, referral to psychiatrists, anxiety, parenting and marriage workshops available. Check out Grove Counseling Services!

Paula Courtney LMHC Counseling Services's Groups

Women with Trauma Histories - Changing the Story

Cognitive behavioral therapy will help clients review their trauma be it a one time ordeal or a chronic long lasting situation. Automatic thoughts about ourselves (I'm unworthy, broken), others (cannot be trusted, will hurt or leave me), and the world (does not have a place for me to be happy) will be identified, challenged and redefined. Group will be half psychoeducation based and then open discussion. Cost will be $40 per week (insurance accepted as well), group will be limited in size. Alternate group time available (morning).
