Therapists Specializing in Physical Wellness in Boston Area

Generally speaking, physical wellness is about taking good care of our bodies so that they are healthy and operate at their best. There are numerous factors that you can control to improve your physical wellness, such as nutrition, sleep, and exercise. Additionally, good physical health is associated with good mental health.

Most mental health professions have insight into the relationship between physical and mental health, yet the therapeutic approach used by each may vary. Some therapists might use motivational interviewing (MI) techniques to help those who are struggling with commitment or behavior change. Others might provide solution-focused therapy to help clients overcome barriers to improving physical health, and still others might use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help individuals progress with their physical wellness through the development of more helpful thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors.

I believe I am a capable general psychiatrist, but with 26 years of specialized practice and academic work in deafness and hearing loss, I feel I have specific things I can offer those patients who need them: an understanding of what it means for one's body to change or to be different from that of others; an appreciation for the layered complexity of experience, from biological (say, anxiety) to cultural (say, a culture's specific expectations for what should and shouldn't make one anxious); an appreciation of child psychiatric conditions that affect adults too—attention deficit, learning disability, autism spectrum; a special awareness of the difficulty of establishing oneself as an independent human being; and, an interest and expertise in unraveling complex diagnostic puzzles and their associated medication choices.

Our image-driven photo-shopping culture has created an epidemic of eating disorders and body image problems that continues to drain our energy and self-esteem, disempowering us in an endless pursuit of slenderness. I have dedicated my career as a clinical psychologist, university teacher and writer on popular media to liberating my clients from self-destructive relationships to food and weight, freeing them to ‘embody’ their authentic selves.

Every person has the strength and healing wisdom inside them to deal with life's greatest struggles. My job is to help you reconnect to those strengths and reinforce them so that you live your life in a way that is true to you. I view people not through a lens of pathology, but one of strength and optimism.

Therapy is not magic, but sometimes it can feel that way. What is important is the therapeutic match--it is a large predictor of therapeutic success. It is the safety and trust that allows for opening and insight. I encourage all potential clients to explore, shop around, really trust their own inner sense of what feels like a good place to land.

Please reach out to set up a free 15 minute consultation with me directly to discuss working together, or if you have any questions or are curious.
