If you are looking for a warm, welcoming place to discuss any issue, thought, or problem you've been dealing with without judgment or closed-mindedness, then I could be a great fit for you! I have a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology, and I'm licensed as a mental health counselor in Massachusetts. I have a very friendly, laid-back personality and am always eager to help. I use a lot of humor in my general approach; however, I am also very comfortable working through serious and difficult subjects in a calm, supportive way. I'm a very happy, positive person and can always find a silver lining in almost any situation! I’ve been in the human services field since 2011, and my experience is very diverse. I have a lot of experience with substance abuse, depressive and anxiety disorders, PTSD, and ADHD, both through inpatient, outpatient, and community-based treatment. Additionally, I have experience with domestic violence, the Department of Children and Families (DCF), foster care regulations, and the Massachusetts legal system. My therapeutic approach pulls from several different types of therapy, and though I'm mostly based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I'm also able to utilize different approaches and techniques as needed. I am very open and welcoming to feedback, as well as flexible, so I always encourage people to share what they want and need while we're working together so that I have a chance to help or adjust accordingly. I’ve also worked with clients of all ages from all kinds of ethnicities, religions, and backgrounds. Once we build a positive relationship with open and honest communication, I am confident I can help and support you in reaching your goals! A promise to you, as my client: I will always work at your pace, so you'll never feel rushed, and we'll always focus on whatever issue you feel is most important or urgent. Remember, you know yourself better than anyone else ever could, so I will never assume that I know what's best. My job is to listen, support, and provide you with the tools to be able to manage your feelings and your life, so you can accomplish the things you hope to achieve!

In today's world, mental health support is needed more than ever. Mental health IS health. It's time to end the stigma and realize it's okay to not be okay. Finding a therapist can be a daunting process but congratulations on taking the first step! As a therapist, I aim to foster an environment that is warm, collaborative, supportive, and nonjudgmental. I'm a licensed independent clinical social worker in Massachusetts and earned my Masters in Social Work degree from Boston College. I also have a Bachelor's degree in history. I view the counseling process as an alliance between client and therapist and consider the clients experts of their lives. Within the structure of the therapeutic relationship, clients can access their inner strengths and promote change. I use a combination of modalities that include but are not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. My theoretic approach is based on the belief that clients are in charge of their counseling experience. They will learn the bounds of aspects of their life that they can control and what they cannot. Clients will understand that the therapeutic relationship is a partnership in which they will be expected to put in the effort for homework, be accountable, and present within the counseling alliance.

Having a safe place where we can compassionately explore and bring wisdom, mindfully to the forefront of experiences is essential. Taking the time to understand our thoughts, emotions and behaviors using a whole-person approach is very helpful. I explore how trauma and biological resilience have been impacted over time by an individual’s lifestyle and emotional experiences throughout life. Understanding how somatic tools, reframing techniques, and lifestyle changes can help with resetting the parasympathetic nervous system. I also enjoy working with those who are experiencing chronic health conditions whose nervous system is overstimulated or who are experiencing chronic inflammation that affects their mood, daily. I work with adults on their sense of self and building healthy relationships.

Are you often unable to take a moment to yourself and decompress? Do the people in your life call on you to handle or ‘fix’ situations? Maybe you find it difficult to give yourself grace based on what “should” be. If this sounds like you, I hope to assist you in organizing the many overwhelming tasks in your life by identifying attainable goals to manage stress and prioritize your needs and desires. Welcome! I’m Shakyra and I empower Millennial and Gen Z men and women with the tools and support they need to put themselves first. No issue is too small for therapy. I love to work with individuals who are facing everyday stressors but do not have the necessary support to cope with those stressors. This could be, but is not limited to, people who are struggling with lack of organization, dealing with heartbreak or other life adjustments. In group settings, I work with people who want to better understand why they feel, act, or react to varying stressors in the way that they do. When you’re ready to “woosah” and better handle the stresses of life, I’m ready to help you. Book a consultation today so we can schedule your first session and get you back to being your best self!

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, my name is Bradley Levy LICSW and have 20 years of experience in the field. Are there changes that either you want to or need to act upon? If things feel too difficult to change and you need guidance, support, direction, and empathic listening you might be a great candidate for individual therapy from me. What separates me from other clinicians is my versatility. Throughout my career, I have worked at every level of care and every population. From individual therapy/group therapy to intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization programs to being the clinical director at a locked psychiatric hospital, I have seen pretty much everything. My main objective in all cases is to try and build a trusting rapport/relationship in which no judgment is made and an atmosphere where one can feel safe talking about difficult issues, their current level or desire to change through motivational interviewing and CBT. Over the years I have come to develop areas of extreme expertise such as addiction (either oneself or a loved one), co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis, dealing with any diagnosis from adjustment disorders to more complex or serious mental illness which includes major depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, and the conditions that fall within these categories. In addition, I can offer case management services, assist with paperwork, or find the right treatment if need a higher level of care.

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.

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.

This is when we seek guidance, we may be experiencing chronic stress, pain, depression, anxiety, grief, or as of late feeling like this world is not something we recognize any longer. I believe we feel our best when we have balance in all aspects of our lives, When this balance is skewed we feel drained, fatigued and easily overwhelmed.

I use many different avenues/techniques to help you on your journey. One of my passions is using multiple collaborations of herbal, medical and nutritional treatments for mental health issues. I stress how important it is to use each session as a springboard to process and practice the new skills we discuss.

“An Arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back, it means that it is going to launch you into something great.” Life has its way of pulling us backward, but I believe with positive support, healthy coping skills, and processing through things that are dragging you back; you can learn to thrive and launch yourself into greater things. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Missouri and also licensed in Illinois and Massachusetts. I received my Master's from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I have worked with clients of all ages and enjoy the chance to help you make positive changes to live your best life! I have worked in the mental health field for over ten years. Throughout my time working in mental health I have worked with clients with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, PTSD, personality disorders, and substance and alcohol use disorders. My greatest skill as a therapist is being able to work with clients and help them feel accepted, heard, and understood. I have been trained in many therapy modalities and use these skills to help clients learn coping skills to better manage and cope with daily stress and symptoms they have previously suffered from. I believe change is possible. Using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills, I teach clients mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. This specific therapy modality was specifically created to help people diagnosed with personality disorders, but I have also found these skills effective in treating a range of other symptoms including anger, depression, anxiety, substance use, mood disorders, self-harming behaviors, trauma responses, and eating disorders. I integrate DBT skills into my client's treatment based on their needs. By learning these helpful and healthy coping skills I have witnessed my clients learn to not only manage their lives better but thrive in 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.
