About me

My name is Uma Subbiah and I am a Clinical Psychologist from Massachusetts with over 20 years experience working as a psychotherapist. I have experience with clients with a wide range of concerns including Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse issues, marital and relationship issues, and anger management issues. I also have experience helping clients suffering from trauma related to abuse, sexual trauma, and military trauma.

My counseling style is compassionate and respectful and I focus on developing a good therapeutic relationship with my clients. I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of depression and anxiety, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Cognitive Processing Treatment which is Treatment for PTSD, and EMDR. I have an eclectic approach with my clients and I focus on the client’s personality style and their individual goals in determining the best approach for the client. My focus is working collaboratively with the clients to assist them in resolving their concerns and meeting their goals.

I realize that seeking help for your concerns and to achieve a happier and more fulfilled life takes courage. So I am here to support you on that journey as we work together to achieve your goals.

I look forward to working with you.

Dr. Subbiah was so helpful to me during very bad post partum anxiety and depressive episodes. Once we worked through that she helped me dig deeper into my PTSD and help me learn coping strategies. She talked with me about my suspected medical diagnosis and encouraged me to speak with my primary doctor. Turns out we were right and now I'm getting the correct help and treatment I need. I think about her often and wish I could just update her on my life. She felt like a friend that I could trust with anything and I use her advice daily.

Dr. Subbiah has been very helpful in treating my PTSD and helping me deal with the symptoms of both OCD and Bipolar Depression. I don't know how I would have gotten through Covid without her. Not only is she compassionate and really listens without making me feel judged or rushed, she's also very experienced and knowledgeable in the various methods of treating complex mental health issues. Her level of expertise isn't going to be found in a Licensed Clinical Social Worker or someone with a master's in social work. She's a great psychologist and I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to be her client.
