Professional statement

Monica Young, LICSW is a clinical social worker practicing in Cambridge, MA. She specializes in working with adolescents, young adults, families and women facing transitions in their lives.

Monica believes that a major goal of therapy is to develop an understanding of how we interact with and relate to the important people and systems in our lives in order to create a deeper sense of meaning and purpose. This kind of self-exploration can be especially important for adolescents and young adults as they seek independence. For Individuals and families who are "stuck" in difficult patterns, it can help to have a therapist guide them through struggles so that they can have more fulfilling interactions and experiences with one another.

Monica works primarily with older adolescents, young adults and families struggling with a range of complex interpersonal and emotional issues. She has more than a decade experience with people from varying cultures and backgrounds, including Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia. She is equally comfortable working with people who would like to focus on common problems as well as more complicated, intense circumstances.

Monica feels it is important to find a therapist with whom there is a good fit and shared sense of goals. Her style is warm, active, casual and collaborative, and she is flexible and integrative in her therapeutic approach. She believes that the trust that develops within the therapeutic relationship can form the basis for healing and growth on a path towards greater ease and happiness in one’s life.
