This process and educational group aims to help teenagers learn how to negotiate life with less screen time. Using mindfulness techniques, my group allows teenagers to better understand their use patterns, how it feels to be away from their screen, and the potential mental health and interpersonal benefits of their reduced screen time. I will assign homework and tracking activities, revolving around mindfulness practices, that we will process every week.
Liam Lattrell is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Northampton, MA who specializes in mindfulness, depression, anxiety, relationships, substance use, and addiction.
Liam offers compassionate relational based therapy. His approach is to listen, understand, and build a connection that fosters growth within clients. While psychodynamic in nature, he utilizes behavioral therapies, mindfulness, and appropriate humor to help a person feel heard and continue to grow. When working with individuals with depression and/or anxiety, he focuses on their connections with others and spends time helping them get to the root causes. For example, if someone comes in with underlying causes of low self-worth, he helps them explore how this might be related to past and/or current relationships. He utilizes a deep attuned listening and theory based insight to help clients embrace and tap into their own inner resources that will help them cope and take on life’s challenges.
Liam believes everyone has the power to heal and grow, and he is there to support clients on this journey. For over eight years, he worked in case management and individual psychotherapy settings helping adults and adolescents find purpose and meaning in their lives. He received his MSW from Smith College. He looks forward to meeting you.
