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.

Hi there, I'm Samantha Living with stress, depression and/or anxiety can be exhausting. Being able to learn different strategies and techniques to manage symptoms can change and improve your life. I am a clinical licensed social worker that specializes in working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, life stressors and relationships. One of my approaches to therapy is to help provide support, guidance and useful feedback that can help you effectively address life changes.

Seeking therapy can sometimes feel scary, but you're making the right choice and taking a step closer to a positive change. Together, we can work to find the best coping strategies and techniques to help you through any challenging transition. Let's work together!

My name is Nadine Thompson, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Clinical Practice, from Smith College School of Social Work in 1991. I also have post-graduate certification in Addiction counseling, multicultural practice, DBT, and Couples and Family Therapy. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, addiction, relationships/parenting, and more. Over the past 30 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the rapport, connection, and comfort you feel with your therapist. Recently, I have come to really see the value in being able "to hold space" for clients to express their deepest feelings and possibly find the answers and direction that they need as they become more self-aware. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe in the power of “telling our stories”, as a pathway to healing and resilience. Our work together may include you being able to see yourself and those around you more clearly and develop tools and strategies for creating change in your life.

Reaching out for help in the form of therapy is not an easy thing to do as many can attest, but by reading this biography, you are taking the first step in getting help for yourself or a loved one. At times, life offers many struggles and obstacles that can be difficult to overcome alone. Engaging in therapy will provide opportunities to explore and process the thoughts and feelings that prevent you from living your best life. Though the thought of therapy may be intimidating and even nerve-wrecking for some, I believe once a person finds the right therapist, they find a trusting confidant who seeks to understand and problem solve.

Are you ready to take back control of your thoughts and feelings? Are you ready to consider alternatives to what you have already been doing? The definition of insanity is continuing to do what you have been doing and expecting different results. Lets try something new! I have been a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of Florida since 1990 and in Massachusetts since 2015. I approach therapy from a Systems perspective- looking at the the individual in relation to various relationships and systems such as immediate family, extended family or work environment. I also approach therapy from a Solution-Focused perspective- while the root problem needs to be identified, I guide the client to discover solutions unique and acceptable to them. I work with couples to improve communication and problem solving. I have been trained through the Gottman program Levels 1 and 2 which emphasizes trust and commitment as the foundations of a healthy marriage. I have extensive experience working with Substance Abuse issues, working with both the addict and the family members effected by the addiction.

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.

I'm Kelly! I'm a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) based in Massachusetts. I received my MSW from Boston University and have been practicing for 13 years. I love my job and hope my passion and enthusiasm comes through. I have a poster in my office that says “Good morning. Eyes up. Hearts up. Mind sharp. Compassion on full blast. (sips coffee) Okay let’s go” a favorite tweet of mine from the inimitable Lin Manuel Miranda. This mantra helps to center me and reminds me that there is almost nothing we can’t do with a little compassion (and some coffee!). I am passionate about social justice and anti-bias work, believe that humans do well when they can, and if they can't that by providing support, guidance and unconditional positive regard we can get them back on track. I believe in a whole-person, community centered approach in my work. My primary experience is working with children and adolescents and their caregivers on issues such as anxiety, ADHD and depression. I also have experience with adults and am excited to work with people of all ages. My goal is to create a supportive environment where clients can grow, help them to build up lagging skills, teach coping strategies, and partner with clients on how to be their best selves.

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.

I provide an empathetic, calm, and nurturing environment, where you will feel heard, and most importantly, understood. Together we will work on ways to help you understand your feelings and compulsions.

Hello! My name is Ms. Tammy Carson and I am a board-certified Psychotherapist. I am originally from Boston Massachusetts. In my younger years I traveled and worked in many states in a corporate yet still helping role as a business analyst and functioned as a project manager too in South Africa Johannesburg. I am licensed in the state of Massachusetts and Florida. I attended a Christian college for my undergraduate degree at Eastern Nazarene a college affiliated through the church of the Nazarene. The social work department at the college mirrored and was taught social work through a Christian perspective and philosophies taken from the stories of the bible. I completed my graduate degree at Simmons School of Social Work in Boston Massachusetts, getting an MSW, and an Urban Leadership certificate. I have been licensed and doing psychotherapy since 2013. My last job before doing psychotherapy full time was working in an emergency room alongside psychiatric residents doing crisis evaluations, advocating for all populations to get them the proper level of care needed. I like to think in psychotherapy session’s that, “I meet people where they are at in life”, and take it from there. I am an empath and proud of it. I genuinely like helping people understand, identify and better manage their daily lives and relationships. I enjoy helping people to take control and get the best out of life for themselves.
