Professional statement

Joel Krieg is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Certified Group Psychotherapist in Cambridge, MA with over 10 years of clinical experience facilitating individual, group, and family therapy. He currently coordinates three interpersonal groups for men, early young adults, and young adults. Through group therapy, Joel helps individuals find their voice, feel more connected with others, and learn about themselves to empower self-development and change. Individuals are able to practice different ways of being and connecting with others, which is a therapeutic process in itself.

In addition to group therapy, Joel sees many individuals struggling with transitions in life, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Having hosted groups for students at Boston University’s School of Medicine, he especially enjoys supporting teenagers and college students as they navigate the challenges and opportunities involved in the transitional journey toward adulthood. He values creating a safe and supportive environment to work through each client’s challenges.

Joel draws upon an array of treatment modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, and supportive approaches. His office is conveniently located within walking distance from Harvard Square.
