Counseling is a unique process where you can feel safe and be yourself, create goals and find ways to improve your quality of life. As your therapist, I provide a relaxed and comforting environment for you to share whatever you choose to share. My job is to listen, provide feedback and help you develop skills to create positive change in your life. I will be able to help you reduce stress and help you grow. I am creative and comforting in my treatment process and will remain objective and non-judgmental to allow to work together on the presenting problem. I specialize in relationships, couples therapy and individual counseling. I can help you improve your relationship with your spouse, partner, boss or family members. I also work with folks who have addiction issues including substance and gambling addictions. My main focus and priority when working with clients is to provide a safe and comforting space to allow clients to engage and be open in therapy, this will help to get to the root of the presenting problem. Creating positive change, increasing self-esteem and problem-solving is the goal.

I love my profession! I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (independently licensed in FL and MA) for over 25 years with experience working with adults and adolescents, both female and male, inspiring hope while working together to develop essential life skills and healthy coping tools. I take a strength-based approach as I believe everyone can grow and change. The hardest and most important step is reaching out and asking for help, so you are on your way to a better place in your life. Do you find that you tend to dwell on the past and things you can’t change? Do you worry about the future, the what if’s and things you cannot predict? Do you find that you are so busy in life, maybe taking care of others, putting their needs ahead of your own or you forget or don’t feel you have time to take care of yourself? That’s where I can help. I specialize in treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, psychosocial stressors/major life changes, self-esteem building, social skills, trauma and grief. I am very knowledgeable about mental health diagnosis' however I concentrate less on the actual diagnosis because a mental illness does not define who you are. I am here to help guide you to a happy and healthy place in your life.

Hi, I'm Greg, Have you ever felt like the path your life has taken has not turned out the way you expected? Do you sometimes wonder why you don't feel the way you think you should, or worry that you may not be headed in the right direction? We all feel that way, quite often, and I've found that it often helps to talk through some of these things to help us feel more confident in ourselves, and in our lives. For the past 30 years, I have been in the business of helping people of all ages through tough spots in their lives, with a variety of circumstances and problems, and I have seen a lot, but I am always interested in meeting new people and finding new challenges to work through.

As a licensed Psychologist, I first prioritize learning not only why a person is contacting me, but also to be able to relate to that person based on their individual needs and what are their expectations of therapy. I believe that we all need to have a sense of purpose or meaningfulness in our lives, something that our thoughts, emotions and life experiences contribute to the "heart" of our personalities. The process of healing from the challenges of life begins with a search for truth about our beliefs, habits and relationships. Physical health is affected by our mental health through the complex interactions between the brain and bodily functions. Interventions I use in my sessions include Cognitive Therapy, CBT, DBT and ACT. As a Psychologist, I have worked in private practice, long term care, and forensic and psychiatric hospitals. Even though these patient populations are diverse, the common denominator is the human "heart". My sessions work to connect a person's sense of meaning in life to help them overcome anxiety, depression and a loss of personal identity in this complex world.

I enjoy empowering people and digging out their strengths. I don't ask fish to fly, neither do I ask birds to swim. I respect everyone's strengths and help my client be aware of their strengths. I love to highlight my client's strengths. I offer a safe, warm, therapeutic, judgment-free space for Adults (18+) and Older Adults (65+). I am sorry, but I do not accept clients who pay in cash. It is my ethical duty to officially terminate our therapeutic relationship when it is reasonably clear the client is no longer beneficent, when services are no longer required, when counseling no longer serves the needs and/or interests of the client or when Dr Olushola Bakare, LMFT limits do not allow provision of further counseling services. It is the policy of Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT, that after a one-month consistent lapse of meeting with a client our professional relationship will be considered terminated. Dr Olushola Bakare, LMFT, will make an attempt to notify you of this change in status as soon as possible after the one-month period. It is my ethical duty to identify, be available, and care for current clients. This could possibly feel awkward for our relationship to end yet, is not meant to be discourteous in anyway.

Hi this is Carol. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in eight states including Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Illinois. My career started in Pennsylvania where I attended Chestnut Hill College and received my Master's in Counseling Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy Option. It continued in upstate Pennsylvania and New York where I attended SUNY University of Buffalo and received my Master of Social Work Degree. I capped those off with a Psy.D. from CalSouthern University, received Magnum Cum Laude in 2012 using an online doctoral format. I am also an Advanced Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor in the state of South Carolina. I was fortunate to have an opportunity to attend the University of South Carolina shortly after relocating there in 2016 where I received a certificate in Military Matters. If you are having flashbacks or memories of traumatic events that you cannot shake, we can disburse them using best evidence practices. If your anxiety has gotten out of control, we can combine forces to put you in control of the stressors and persistent thoughts that keep you from being your best and sleeping well at night. When depression makes you want to stay inside of your home or in bed each day, I have tools we can use to empower you and help you avoid guilt. For any problem that interferes with your life or life transitions, there is a tool in my toolbox that has the power to bring about change. If we need a tool from someone else's toolbox, I know how to either borrow that tool, gain that missing knowledge, or do a warm handoff to other resources and providers without missing a beat. I strongly believe in the unity of and interaction between the mind and body. The body keeps the score and emotional and physical assaults leave scars. I believe that a respectful level of humor enhances one's ability to grow and accept the dialectal events in life. Research tells us that a sense of humor helps people to learn and grow. Therapy is one of many ways in which we learn to navigate the roads and streams of life.

My name is Krystyna Ksiazek. I live in Massachusetts. I am a Licensed Mental Health Clinician. I have been practicing psychotherapy for 29 years and never got sick of it. Seeing my clients succeeding, whether in therapy or their private life adds meaning to my work. My area of interest is Trauma and Complex-PTSD, Anxiety Spectrum Disorders such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Agoraphobia, phobias, Eating disorders, Depression, and Grief. Also, I have experience in the treatment of anger management problems, self-harm behaviors, and dissociative/split personality disorders. I like working with Young Adults, Adults, the Elderly, men, and women. I like to reach out beyond the traditional scope of therapeutic interventions, to alternative medicine based on the homeostatic model of health. I want to help clients to build self-confidence and optimism and empower them to face new challenges, grow, and succeed as they never imagined. I like to build up therapeutic alliances with the clients, and create an atmosphere where they know and feel that I am there for them and that I understand and support them. I do not mind spending more time with them if this is clinically necessary. Also, under exceptional circumstances, I allowed clients to contact me on the phone outside of therapy sessions, to assist them in coping with extraordinary situations, guide them when they struggle with using newly acquired skills, etc. I came to the USA from Poland in the year of 1981. I had to start "from the bottom". I have been through many ups and downs, and painful personal losses; my mother, friend boyfriend, but I never gave up. My resilience, optimism, and positive outlook on life, did not allow me to accept the failure. Contrary, it motivated me to try harder. Most of the time it worked.
