Professional statement

Liddy Cole is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Brookline, MA who specializes in anxiety, life transitions, ADHD, learning disabilities, adoption, and trauma. Many of their clients have trouble adjusting to a new situation—whether it is college, a new job, parenthood, etc. They have extensive experience working with college students and individuals diagnosed with ADHD. They also help adults with learning disabilities figure out if they are getting appropriate accommodations at work.

Liddy has expertise in working with adult adoptees around identity issues and anything related to that lived experience as it might come up in individual therapy. Their treatment focus in that area is centered more around adoption as an element of someone's identity and not the logistical process of adopting a child. They also work with parents on an individual basis for support balancing parenting stress/individual mental health needs.

While Liddy primarily works from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) framework, they utilize a number of different treatment modalities depending on their client’s needs and goals. They help their clients gain a better understanding of how past experiences have informed who they are today and how they interact with the world. Many discussions revolve around why a client feels stuck and how they can learn to move forward and open themselves up to new experiences or thought patterns. For some clients, meditation and guided visualizations prove helpful.

Liddy’s demeanor is gentle and encouraging. They guide their clients as they gain insight into themselves and begin to make connections about past and present experiences. They look forward to meeting you.

Message to clients

Society is filled with messages about how our lives should look and feel, and when we fall short we often blame ourselves, leading to sadness and despair. I work with clients to uncover their own strengths, and to regain power over the areas of life that feel overwhelming or out of control. My approach to treatment is evidence-based while being affirming and non-stigmatizing. My energy is warm and friendly, and past clients have appreciated the chance to explore difficult content in a non-judgmental environment.

I offer free 15-minute phone consultations to assess if my practice is the right fit for your needs. Please message me to schedule.
