Masha Sorkin is a licensed clinical social worker in Brookline with expertise in college and young adult challenges, anxiety, couples counseling, trauma, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), family issues, and mood disorders. Masha recognizes that her clients have busy lives, and holds early morning, late evening, and Sunday office hours to make therapy accessible for students and working professionals.
Masha’s practice is focused on working with college students and young adults in their 20s and 30s as they navigate the complicated world of “adulting.” Masha has deep expertise in skills-based approaches to anxiety disorders, including exposure therapy for OCD. She also works with many trauma survivors, offering EMDR to work towards releasing painful memories that are trapped in the body. Masha enjoys helping couples who are feeling “stuck” and trapped in patterns of negative communication reconnect, problem solve collaboratively, and express appreciation for each other’s strengths.
Masha values the contribution that clients make to therapy, and readily adapts her style and the structure of the session to meet individual needs. She frequently provides homework in order for clients to independently assess what skills work best for their lives and get the most out of therapy sessions, and works to support individuals outside of scheduled sessions via Skype, email, phone, and text. Her office is conveniently located less than a minute walk from the Kent Street Station on the Green Line (C).
