Laura-Marie Tusi, LMHC

Philosophy of Care

Healing is not for the faint of heart, rather it is a journey and not a destination. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, mood swings, trauma, life transitions, substance abuse, religious struggles, couples/marital issues, family relationships, myriad of medical issues, and/or loses of different combinations, we will work together to achieve the goals you desire in a holistic manner. We all need someone to talk with in a world of "virtual reality" to work through the treasures of our hearts that we hold dear. Be encouraged, you are not alone.

In therapy, we will use a myriad of different skills and techniques that are tailored specifically for you and your needs/goals. We all have different personalities and ways that we perceive the world, in which, we need to learn how to manage the different stressors that arise.

Talking to a stranger about your hurt, pain, sorrow, disappointments, is not easy. But you have the strength within you to reach out for help where you will have a warm and welcoming space awaiting you. We will work together towards your goals, and you will always be encouraged as you know yourself more than anyone else will ever.

Wendy Barry, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Wendy Barry is a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner who has over 14 years of nursing experience.  Wendy completed her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree at Fitchburg College, which is now Fitchburg University, in Fitchburg Massachusetts.  She completed her Masters of Science in Nursing at Regis College in Weston Massachusetts. Wendy bases her treatment on the biopsychosocial model and evidence-based practices.

Wendy understands that medication is only a part of the picture within the biopsychosocial model of mental health.  Her practice in medication is "start low and go slow", which is considered a standard of care in psychiatry.  She is a strong supporter of collaborative care and will work with other providers to maintain client's optimal health.  As a prescriber Wendy takes on the role of consult and encourages clients to feel confident in their psychiatric care.  She does this by asking questions, answering questions, and encouraging clients take the lead in their care.

Wendy treats clients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD and bipolar disorder.
