Professional statement

Talya Boston is a Licensed Professional Social Worker located in Brooklyn, NY. Talya specializes in giving clients a warm, welcoming space to talk about their circumstances and their feelings. Talya treats clients who suffer from depression and anxiety, history of trauma, self esteem issues, communication and boundary issues. Many of Talya's clients are facing major life transitions or relationship conflict and are seeking someone to talk to about painful memories, existential questions, difficult emotions, areas in which they feel stuck, and future dreams.

Talya’s approach to therapy is rooted in psychodynamic psychotherapy but also draws from attachment, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral, and narrative therapies. She helps clients learn more about their internal worlds by encouraging self-reflection and introspection both during and after the session. Her goal is to teach clients the coping skills they need to handle any difficult situation that happens. Her style is collaborative and interactive, as she works closely with the client to determine what their mental health goals are and how to reach those goals.

Talya earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University. She has over eight years of experience supporting clients. Before she became a therapist, she had a career in law. She helps clients to make positive changes in their lives so they can thrive in any setting.

Message to clients

I believe that there is room for each of us to grow and curate our lives in such a way as to find fulfillment and authenticity no matter our past, current or future struggles. I see my work with my clients as facilitating and driving this kind of transformative process.

I work with clients to understand more deeply where they have come from (the many intertwined aspects of what has made them who they are), who they in fact are (we do not always understand this as well as we think) and where they wish to go. This is a multi-pronged process that begins on day one and continues in various forms throughout the therapeutic relationship but with the end goal, always, of the client being who they want to be, comfortable in their own skin, accepting of their emotions and those of others but also able to manage these emotions so that they can have an honest rewarding relationship with themselves and with others.

My method involves working collaboratively with the client in a safe space allowing them the experience of being seen and listened to non-judgmentally. My active empathic listening will lead to further creative questions usually helping clients to explore different facets of themselves and alternative ways of being.
