Professional statement

Dr. Marianne Cook is a Clinical Social Worker located in Cambridge, MA. She specializes in working with high-achieving professionals, college and graduate students, and university faculty. Using evidence-based techniques, Marianne helps clients cope with anxiety, overwhelm, burnout, perfectionism, self-criticism, impostor syndrome, and procrastination. She also supports them in building healthy friendships and partnerships, exploring identity issues, adjusting to new situations and life phases, and figuring out their personal and professional paths.

Marianne draws from mindfulness practices, cognitive-behavioral techniques, and insight-oriented approaches in her sessions. Through examining family and relationship patterns, her clients gain more self awareness and become empowered to address conflicts and navigate difficult dynamics. By learning to respond differently to painful beliefs and feelings, they gain valuable tools to improve mood, manage stress, and handle life's challenges. Clients describe Marianne as authentic, attentive, compassionate, and dedicated.

Marianne earned her bachelor's degree in Psychology from Harvard University and her master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Chicago. She also holds a doctoral degree in Higher Education from Northeastern University, with a research focus on student mental health. Marianne is available for in-person and online therapy.
