Dr. Anne Welsh is a licensed psychologist located in Cambridge, MA. Dr. Welsh sees clients of all ages and life stages. Many of her clients are students who feel immense academic and personal pressure and want to grow their coping skills to combat stress. Other clients are new parents who would like to talk about their experiences beginning their families. Dr. Welsh helps clients find balance in their lives and determine the next steps towards a healthier, more comfortable life.
Dr. Welsh’s approach to therapy draws from many evidence-based modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). She collaborates with her clients to set and reach goals, including offering guidance on practical goals in everyday life. She provides a warm, compassionate space where clients feel empowered to problem solve, talk about their emotions, and develop a framework of self-love. She encourages clients to reflect on their past and notice the patterns that emerge.

Her goal is to support clients as they reach authentic, enjoyable lives that include recharging after stressful moments and connecting with those around them.
