Professional statement

Suhrida Yadavalli is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Newton, MA who specializes in anxiety, life transitions, relationships, and young women's mental health. Her practice is open to young adults, including college students, as well as adults across the lifespan.

When clients visit Suhrida, they’re often faced with overwhelm stemming from new challenges, such as living away from home for the first time, or navigating the transition from graduation to launching their career. She provides both skills-based support, such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as well as psychodynamically-informed approaches, to help clients work through anxiety and develop a deeper sense of self-worth.

Suhrida has deep expertise in providing relationship trauma-informed care to young women, and she understands that treatment can only go at a pace that is comfortable for the client. She uses the power of developing one’s own narrative to help clients work through related issues, such as negotiating healthy boundaries and shifting relationship patterns to create more satisfying connections.

Suhrida cares deeply about helping her clients foster healthy relationships with themselves, and with others. She looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

Deciding to see a therapist requires awareness and regard for oneself. I have deep respect for what has brought you here, and this will form the foundation of our work together. Perhaps you seek therapy now because of a crisis that is presenting new challenges or bringing up old, unresolved problems. Or you now feel ready to address a long-standing pattern that has caused much difficulty and pain over time. These burdens may be affecting not only your relationships with others but also how you relate to yourself. My job is to help you expand your capacity for what you can do alone.

I offer a combination of psychoanalytic and CBT/DBT informed approaches while being mindful of both the universality and cultural individuality of our experiences. I have worked extensively with a range of people, from those in the throes of PTSD or addiction to ones dealing with transitions or looking for greater connection in relationships.

I hold the conviction that exploration of the past is necessary as it influences and shapes our circumstances, while at times being present to our anxieties and resources in the moment is crucial. By coming here, you have already begun your work. If you think that I may be of help, let us have a conversation. It would be my privilege to talk with you.
