Professional statement

Eileen English is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Bedford, MA who specializes in anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, life transitions, and anger management. She works with both teens and adults across the lifespan. A majority of her clients experience some degree of anxiety.

While Eileen primarily utilizes Internal Family Systems (IFS), she takes an individualized approach that takes into account a client’s background and goals. She frequently utilizes mindfulness and grounding techniques, which is especially effective in managing anxiety. She is also trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Eileen meets her clients where they are and frequently checks in on their fears and concerns to ensure things are moving at a comfortable pace. She also works with them to gain a better understanding of how they respond to challenges as well as learn new coping strategies.

Eileen makes a conscious effort to develop a safe, nonjudgmental space where clients feel comfortable expressing emotion and facing their fears. Before working in private practice, she provided group and individual therapy in multiple settings, including inpatient, outpatient, and forensic mental health. She looks forward to meeting you.
