Boston is one of the oldest cities in the US, and it had many involvements in the revolutionary history of America. The Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the list goes on. Point is, this is a city of revolution. If you have poor mental health, it’s time for your own mental revolution. 

A counselor based in Boston can lead the charge for a revolution. By speaking to a counselor, you can take back your mental health and make it your own.

Change is often difficult. As humans, we tend to resist that which is unknown or uncomfortable, even if it means continuing to experience emotional suffering. Engaging in psychotherapy can be a great way to mobilize your inner resources, and help you overcome the obstacles that may be impeding your quality of life. I believe in providing a non-judgmental space, in which a genuine therapeutic relationship can develop and thrive. Ideally, this allows for two mutually beneficial input sources -- the psychologist's expertise in psychological theory and treatments,...

As a former yoga, meditation and dance teacher, I bring mindfulness and body-centered awareness to my work as a therapist. With fourteen years experience working as a therapist, I have a warm, respectful style in my interactions with others. I support people to feel heard, validated and to find their own voice. I work with people to gently create the changes they desire. Often, this involves understanding the family dynamics within which they were raised, and/or past or current factors that appear to inhibit change. Stuckness exists for a reason. Let's ho...

Having a hard time selecting a therapist?

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Boston area. First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy or couple’s counseling; just pick what’s right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, and finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Boston, elsewhere in the Suffolk county.

What is the cost difference between conventional therapy and working with one of our therapists above?

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, but the average price of a therapy session in Boston ranges from $75-$150. Some therapists in the state of Massachusetts will work on a sliding scale, meaning they’ll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With our therapists serving both the city of Boston and elsewhere throughout the state of Massachusetts, you can expect significantly more affordable options with sessions ranging from $40 to $70 per week (billed monthly).

Did you know our therapists are not limited to in-person visits?

Online therapists, including all those listed above able to work with people like you in or around Boston offer creative forms of communication to help people like you receive the best type of treatment for your needs. Whether that’s via sms texting with your therapist, video sessions where you see you one another and talk about your problems, live chat or phone sessions, you and your therapist will find the best way to address your mental health challenges.

How to know if therapy is right for you?

One of the rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is that they are listening to your feelings. Our friends and loved ones often hear us, but they may have a hard time providing objective guidance in the way a therapist can. A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state. In addition to developing healthier emotions, another benefit of therapy is you have a safe space to discuss problems that you may be hesitant to talk about with people in your everyday life.

Many people have sensitive topics to discuss, an addiction or issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends or partner. A Boston therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 673,184 people in the city of Boston, finding a therapist can be both costly and hard to do. Our goal with the list of therapists shown above is to get you the support you need today.
