Professional statement

Andie Insoft is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Newton Highlands, MA who sees individuals, couples, and groups. She specializes in pregnancy & postpartum mental health, depression, anxiety, parenting, and grief and loss, especially with individuals and couples who have experienced a pregnancy loss. She also has extensive experience working with new moms who are struggling with the transition to motherhood. Many couples come to see her after a pregnancy loss and may be looking at trying again.

Additionally, Andie also has an extensive group therapy background. She has facilitated many groups over the past 20 years including the following: new mother groups, pregnancy loss groups, pregnancy after a loss groups, and groups for women who are parenting after the death of one’s own mother. Her practice is LGBTQIA-affirmative. Andie is an active member of the board of directors of The National Perinatal Association and chaired their annual conference on Perinatal Mood Disorders.

Andie works from a relational framework and looks at the whole person, including both their mental and physical health and symptoms. She believes that much of the healing comes from developing a strong, trusting relationship with her clients. When doing longer-term work with a client, Andie takes a Psychodynamic approach and spends time looking at issues they may have been dealing with for a long time but have not yet addressed. For couples who have experienced grief and loss, she helps them integrate their grief into their lives by learning how move forward in their lives while maintaining a strong connection to the child who has passed.

Andie provides a supportive and educational space where clients can feel seen and heard. She is also there to support them on their journey toward healing. Prior to starting her private practice, Andie worked at the Rice Center for Children and Families where she primarily worked with families with children under three years old. She also worked at the Jewish Family and Children’s Service where she provided support for new moms and facilitated support groups. She looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

The ‘fit’ between a client and a therapist is all important. I believe that much of the healing takes place through the relationship we develop. I firmly believe that challenges can present one with a unique opportunity to really look at oneself and grow.
