Professional statement

Kate Moschandreas is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working in Boston, MA. She is a relational therapist who helps individuals, couples, and families better understand how their relationships impact their mood and behavior – and also helps them grow into greater fulfillment. This collaborative work helps clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, addiction, and responses to trauma.

Many people come to therapy because they feel stuck. Kate strives to foster insight into this “stuckness” by studying the dynamics within their relationships, especially the relationships with their families of origin. She strives to make therapy feel safe, inviting, and supportive, and her clients tell her that they look forward to their sessions.

Kate uses an eclectic mix of therapeutic modalities, including psychodynamic therapy, trauma-informed cognitive behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. In her work with couples and families, Kate integrates John Gottman’s couples theory and Harville Hendrix’s Imago communication skill sets. She is also interested in using meditation and mind-body wellness as active responses to emotional suffering.

Years before earning her masters in counseling, Kate studied both public policy and theology (earning masters degrees in both at Harvard University). Even though these educational experiences were not in psychology, they gave her a deep awareness of systemic social injustice as well as an appreciation for how spirituality can provide solace across the lifespan – and she finds that both perspectives enrich her therapeutic relationships.


Message to clients

I have felt the nervousness that comes from sitting across from a therapist for the first time. It can be utterly nerve-wracking to acknowledge that we want to make changes in our lives, and sometimes we can worry that wanting help reflects poorly on us. I want to assure you that I see seeking therapy as an act of great strength and courage. We only have one life to live, and you are trying to make yours the best possible. I would be honored to meet with you to hear about your struggles.

As we work together, we will identify your particular gifts as well as the obstacles that you want to overcome. Collaboratively, we will identify how to shift experiences both internally and in your outer world that will allow you to feel more comfortable with yourself and in relationships with others. My hope is that your therapeutic experience will encourage insight, growth, and hope.
