Professional statement

Page Kohlhepp is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Lexington, Massachusetts.  She received her MSW from Simmons College.  Page specializes in anxiety, depression, grief and loss, (including navigating the imminence of death and/or anticipatory grief) trauma, mindfulness, stress-reduction, and biofeedback training. While she sees adults across the lifespan, many of her clients are women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. She is also LGBTQIA friendly and culturally competent. Having spent four years of her youth in Japan, inclusivity is extremely important to her. She also brings her experience and skills as a former attorney in family law to sessions.

As a certified HeartMath® trainer, Page uses evidence-based strategies and biofeedback technologies, which can be especially effective when working with clients who are experiencing anxiety/stress, depression, or the after effects of psychological trauma. This treatment involves a simple device that helps clients gain stability and relieve stress-induced symptoms in their daily lives, which help bring about greater balance in mind, body and spirit. She is also certified in critical incident stress management, and has provided counseling to many individuals who have experienced acute trauma in their workplace.

Page uses an integrative approach, offering her clients validation and helping them normalize their experience(s). When working with clients who are navigating grief and loss, she provides them with hope, explores ways they can stay connected to the person they lost, and can help connect them with grief groups. All change is loss, and all loss must be mourned. Knowing that everyone grieves differently, she individualizes her approach.

Page is honored to work with clients on their path to better understanding and healing, to building and sustaining resilience, so that they are able to lead more fulfilling lives. She looks forward to meeting you.

Welcome! It does take courage to reach out for help; you don’t have to be alone.

Many find that talking with a therapist helps them to identify their feelings, improve communication and connection to others, find the strength to make necessary changes, and to live a more meaningful life.

I strive to create an atmosphere of respect, safety and acceptance, in order to build a trusting relationship with clients. My goal as a therapist is to help clients to understand themselves better, treat themselves better, and live more satisfying and meaningful lives. Many find that talking with a therapist helps them to identify their feelings, improve communication and connection to others, find the strength to make necessary changes, and to live a more authentic life.
