Alicia Ziegler, LICSW

Hello. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in the Greater Boston area. I received my B.A. in Society and Health in 2008 from Simmons University. After graduating from undergrad, I worked in retail for two years while looking for opportunities to volunteer with different non-profit organizations in Boston. I was accepted into the Clinical Social Work program in Fall 2010. I graduated from Simmons University with my MSW in 2012. I am someone who is passionate in learning more about how the effects of trauma, institutionalized racism, violence, poverty, sexism, sex work, transphobia, and homophobia impact an individual's or group of individuals access to healthcare, mental health care, housing, employment, and other services. I have experience working with a variety of individuals experiencing challenges with unemployment, trauma, addiction, mental health, violence including intimate partner violence, gun violence, and gang violence. My approaches to individual therapy include, but are not limited to the following: Harm Reduction, Trauma-Informed, Solution Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I come from the belief that individuals do not exist in a vacuum; there are systems in place that act upon individuals and navigating these systems can be incredibly intimidating and challenging. My goal as a clinician is to be able to provide clients the space, tools, and peace they need to process difficult emotions and life transitions.

Bhavna Lal, Psy.D

I firmly believe that every individual is already equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to overcome whatever problem they are facing, but often need help tweaking those skills to meet their current needs. I also believe that a key component to therapy is the relationship between the client and the clinician. As such, I strive to help build a relationship based on equality, trust, and safety in order to help each client reach their goals. You never know what life is going to throw at you, but together we can navigate the tools, skills, and experiences you need to overcome just about anything. 

While I specialize in treating individuals who have experienced trauma, and interpersonal violence, I am highly experienced in working with people from all backgrounds, orientations, and walks of life, with many presenting problems. I have helped individuals successfully work through issues related to phobias, schizophrenia, gender/sexual orientation, stress management, depression, anxiety, and attention related disorders, among others. 

I have worked and trained in a variety of clinical settings, including forensic psychiatric hospitals, community mental health clinics, women’s shelters, jails, and inpatient hospitals, and am fluent in both English and Hindi, with some fluency in Punjabi and Urdu.

Mark Twain said “The two most important days of our lives are the day we are born and the day we find out why.” My personal philosophy is similar in that I firmly believe all persons have purpose; just finding it and living it can be overwhelming .. but it is there.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for the state of Massachusetts, and I love my job! I began this journey in NYC where I received my undergraduate from Queens College in Psychology. My husband and I moved to New Hampshire and I received my M.Ed. from UNH in Educational Counseling. I continued with an MS from GCU in Substance Abuse Counseling and rounded off with my CAGS from Rivier University in Clinical Counseling.

My background is so diverse that I doubt there is a population, setting or disorder that I haven’t successfully engaged in, though trauma and addiction are my specialties. The populations I most align with are children and adults/older adults; especially women. My therapeutic approach is a holistic, client-centered one including psychodynamic principles, CBT and DBT. For children, and sometimes adults, I enjoy the use of sandtray and traditional play therapies.

Therapy is often sought out in times of despair, grief, desolation and heartache. I have a client-centered approach that allows my clients to not feel alone and to help in moving past these terribly isolating feelings. I find it is very important to be present and ‘in the moment’ with my clients so that they don’t need to face life’s hardest challenges without someone by their side. I encourage my clients to be very transparent, and tell me exactly what they need from me, and I will do what it takes to get what they need or will find the person who can. Empathy is not only a value I possess, but is the framework for how I conduct therapy, knowing that my clients don’t ask for these struggles, but still need to face them every day.

My specialties include diverse populations, involving but not limited to all different race, ages, religions, sexual orientations, beliefs, and those with varying disabilities. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, in team and in group settings facilitating group-styled therapy. I have also worked with those in crisis and have experience in numerous emergency related situations, which has expanded itself to include the capability to assess one’s mental state and ability to detect unwanted symptoms. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychological First Aid (PFA).  I also have experience counseling and providing support to those who face substance abuse, trauma, grief, emotional disturbance, self-esteem issues, relationship concerns, eating disorders, and even behaviors and symptoms that involve risk, including suicidal ideation. Professional development is imperative to me, as I understand that it directly affects the clients I see in a positive and goal-focused way. I am very concerned about what my client identifies as problem areas and goals and will work unwaveringly to help you first face these hardships, then to accomplish each of your goals that at one time felt unattainable.

I specialize in individual and couples’ therapy for problems related to depression, anxiety, stress, gambling, other forms of addictions, and relationship difficulties.  I also believe in incorporating my clients' culture, beliefs, and values in order to help them feel more whole.  

I believe that creating an authentic and genuine therapeutic relationship is imperative to behavioral change and therefore it is essential that the therapist and client are a good fit and work as a collaborative team.

I chose counseling because I believe in helping people. I'm here to listen, question, encourage, support and guide you and I look forward to working with you!

Abby Wilson, LMHC

While we each face unique challenges in our lives, and we possess a unique set of strengths to face these challenges. In therapy I help people to identify and cultivate these strengths as a vital part of their recovery. Cognitive behavioral (CBT) techniques are utilized in order to build self-awareness and challenge unhelpful ways of thinking. By understanding the ways we think and perceive the world around us, we can ultimately take control of these thinking habits and become skilled in changing the resulting feelings. 

I have worked with adults with a wide range of treatment issues and diagnoses for over a decade. I specialize in treating traumatic stress, depression and anxiety, and issues of gender and sexuality. I have experience with mindfulness meditation, death and dying, and chronic illness. 

I also have several years of experience working with incarcerated populations and I enjoy assisting ex-offenders as they reintegrate back into society. 

While I frequently use CBT techniques, my style is psychodynamic and above all I strive to be open and affirming. I consider it a great honor to assist my clients in their individual journeys towards wellness.

Dr. Bernard Scott, LICSW, Psy.D.

I have over 20 years of experience working in community mental health clinics in Boston, providing therapy to children, adolescents, adults, seniors, couples and families. My clients face a variety of challenges including: depression, anxiety, anger management, attention deficit, compulsive gambling, domestic violence, gay/lesbian issues, grief/bereavement, obsessive compulsive disorders, personality disorders, phobias, PTSD and psychotic/schizophrenic disorders. My approach to therapy involves partnering with each client and understanding their unique perspective. I then consider a variety of theoretical applications including interpersonal, cognitive/behavioral, solution focused, object relations, RET, breif short term, and psychodynamic to best support the goals of each client.

I firmly believe that mental health practitioners need to focus on supporting homeostasis within their client by using a wide variety of supplemental treatments. These may include referrals to acupuncture, message therapy, meditation, yoga, psychopharmacology, etc..

Clients function best when they are made aware of their own strengths and positive coping skills. The therapist supports this growth process by affirming these skills, and sharing new and different approaches to conflict and stress.

Philosophy of Care

David Martino, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, has provided direct care to patients age 12 years and older for the past eight years. He has extensive clinical experience in diagnosis and medication management, including complex cases with multiple overlapping psychiatric diagnoses, dual diagnosis, and co-occurring medical problems. David earned a Bachelor of Art in English from Regis College, a Master of Theological Studies from The University of Notre Dame, and a Master of Science in Nursing from Boston College.

In session, he makes a point to explore various treatment options, including referral to professionals in other areas of expertise. 

David is committed to helping you meet your goals, not only the ones established at the beginning of treatment but also other goals that you may add as you progress. It is so rewarding to see you thrive!

Alex Newman completed his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with minors in Sociology, Philosophy and Religious Studies from UMASS Amherst, he then went on to get his Master’s Degree in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Lesley University and is now a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with seven years of counseling experience in community based services. 

Alex’s approach to therapy is eclectic, using a Humanistic approach with a blend of Cognitive Behavioral/ Dialectical Behavioral Therapies, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused, Reality Based, and Psycho-educational tools to help support his clients. Emphasizing a more integrative, dynamic, and holistic approach to mental health he explores with clients how the mind, spirit and body are interconnected. These approaches are tailored to each individual so that one can begin to work towards developing his/her unique path towards healing. Listening empathetically to personal truths, assessing and guiding individuals with the tools and skills to manage the issues throughout their lives and move them towards the goals they identify. 

I have always been genuinely interested in the well being and uniqueness of everybody around me. I believe that anyone can gain knowledge through their experiences in a warm, supportive, therapeutic environment. When facing challenges and struggles, you do not need to feel alone; it can be very advantageous to have someone by your side who is nonjudgmental, understanding, and compassionate. Taking the opportunity to seek out help is an admirable attempt to try to live a more fulfilling life for yourself, and demonstrates a great deal of strength! I can help you to discover the useful tools in order to cope with life issues. Thus enabling you to move towards the kind of life you would like to create. I am willing to meet you where you are at in terms of readiness to change and to assist you in making the positive changes you would like to embody.

My theory is that when people are listened to and are free from judgement while exploring their inner meanings, find understanding, calm unwanted feelings, challenge faulty beliefs/irrational thoughts and replace unhelpful attitudes, people become free to experience empowering changes.

Hannah is excellent

★★★★★
I had been unable to make an appointment with a therapist for a long time. Everyone had a three month waiting list. I took a chance and made an appointment here. I love Hannah, she’s excellent, and I’m glad I found Thriveworks. It’s too soon for me to weigh in on the additional services Thriveworks offers but it seems good!

It has been an amazing experience so far

★★★★★
Dr. Shinohara is my first mental health professional I am seeing. It has been an amazing experience so far. The sessions are great and the communications with him in regards to scheduling has been really helpful and appreciative. It is invaluable to have a professional in this field that can share similar identities and experience that I have as an Asian man in America. I am thankful for this opportunity.

Open, present, and caring are essential

★★★★★
Open, present, and caring are essential to providing meaningful and helpful therapy. These are the natural gifts that Emily Schoenborn brings to her practice, and one of the reasons I highly recommend my colleague and fellow traveller. I might add non-judgmental (not because she's supposed to be but is), curious, and invested in her work as well, her client's welfare and well-being the constant, underlying goal throughout the therapeutic experience. Emily is the kind of therapist whose first impression on the client is in putting immediately to rest the initial fears and uncertainty that usually attend such endeavor. It's the kind of beginning that augers well for the work ahead.

My therapist was great. The only problem was I was not given the access code to the building and I had to wait for someone to enter the building. The doorbell to the office is useless because there is no receptionist.

therapy is a journey

★★★★☆
The building sometimes smells weird, but having been a resident of Boston for a long time, I know real estate isn’t always easiest to come by. So far my meetings haven’t yielded as many practical results as I’ve wanted, but I know that therapy is a journey, and just speaking to someone about my issues has been therapeutic in it’s own way.

MS

★★☆☆☆
HI - I was dismayed to learn that in addition to the on-boarding fee of $99 there is now an additional concierge fee of $29 per month. This in addition to whatever co-insurance or deductible a plan may have. I have referred college students to you for years and am hoping you can help me understand this change which amounts to a $450 annual charge. That is significant for students who are many times struggling to pay for food and daily needs. You have great therapists and I wish I could continue to refer to them. Regards, Faith

Thriveworks Counseling Cambridge (872)

I was very

★★☆☆☆
I was very unimpressed with the level of professionalism my therapist showed. I arrived on time for the appointment and had to wait 10 minutes for him to arrive in the office. I found it strange when I was sitting beside a poster that said 97% of our appointments start on time. He never apologized or even acknowledged that he was running behind. When he entered the office, he didn't know my name to greet me - it was kind of like he hadn't remembered he had a session scheduled. As we started talking, I went over my reasons for coming, but he never asked general get to know you questions, things that I feel are important for establishing a baseline relationship and are also important to understand a person. He never asked what I did for a living, or anything about my relationship (which was the main reason I came in to talk), which all seemed a little strange. I can appreciate wanting to get to the root of the problems, but finding a therapist is a big enough leap of faith, and I wanted to feel comfortable and welcome, which I didn't.

It was a good session for my first time. However, at the end it felt like it was optional to come back or proceed. It was hard for me to get a feel if this is something I would benefit from or had a connection with the therapist.

★★★★★
Russell exceeded expectations from a first session. He provided insights and suggestions with great efficiency.
Thriveworks Counseling Cambridge (872)

So far, ok.

★★★☆☆
So far, ok. Little less than impressed with the selection of a therapist when making appointment. Russ seemed like a great guy and appropriately suggested he reviewmy son's case for a better fit. Waiting to hear back. We were 15 minutes early and appointment started more than 10 minutes late, so toss us into the 3%! Would be helpful if more info on parking and what to expect upon arrival for first appointment (or maybe I missed it).

Thank you for seeing me so quickly I really appreciated it!

Kathleen Laikos is the best.

★★★★★
I reluctantly went to a therapist at Thriveworks. I had a common misconception in my head that they'll just sit there on a yellow-lined, OfficeMax notepad while doodling and ask "how does that make you feel?" every couple of minutes. Which, for any person in the 21st century that has a brain, is infuriating. Lo and behold, this was my first impression at Thriveworks. I showed up and met with an old, white dude in his 60s or 70s that just sat in his chair, 'writing' in his notebook, and asking me how I felt. The beginning of the session started with him asking me "How are you?" My response, "I'm f***ing here so it can't be that great, can it?" Towards the end of that session he asked me about my relationship with my parents and it devolved into this completely Freudian based bullshit. The guy obviously hadn't kept up-to-date on his profession, and came off as ignorant, condescending, and just a general moron. I wish I could remember his name so you could avoid this buffoon at all costs. But I digress... I cycled through three more therapists/counselors like this. I felt like they were idiots and not really listening or trying to help, but I needed an impartial third party to talk to while I was going through major life changes I'd never faced before so I stuck it out and kept giving it another shot. Finally, I met with Kathleen. With her thick Boston accent, no bullshit demeanor, and most importantly, someone I could talk to on a similar intellectual playing field, I felt I had met my match. I'm a pretty brusque individual, and don't let a lot of people in. Kathleen tore down that wall like it was 1989 in Germany. She helped me face my issues head on, and change for the better in what was the most difficult and emotionally taxing time in my life. Let me be clear on one thing: If you're looking for someone to hold your hand through your issues and just make you 'feel better', Kathleen is not your person. If that's what you want, go get a pet. Kathleen will ask pointed, challenging questions for you to internalize and come back to her with your thoughts. I left that office so many times and just sat on the steps smoking a cigarette trying to process my thoughts and emotions based on our session. Kathleen is not afraid to call you out when you're being unreasonable. She'll relate to you and empathize with your issues; she's seen some shit in her day, that's for sure. I can count on one hand the number of times she asked me 'how does that make you feel?' in the almost two years I saw her. And when she did, it was an appropriate, empathetic, and serious question she was asking. Kathleen really did help me when I felt nobody else could. She allowed me to get a fresh lease on life. If it wasn't for her, I'd probably be facedown in a gutter somewhere. Instead, I've moved to a city I've always wanted to be in, started a new job at a dream company, and have successfully cut out every toxic person in my life and only focus on positive relationships in my life. Of course, being the kind souled and humble individual she is, she would say that all of that positivity is my doing. But without her guidance and support, I couldn't have done it without her. I'm truly grateful to have had her as a positive light in my life, and will never forget the things she's taught me.
Thriveworks Counseling Cambridge (872)

Style over substance

★☆☆☆☆
Thriveworks charged a $99 fee for additional access to your therapist that, in my experience is available without this charge in every other place I've gotten therapy. Additionally, my therapist was a terrible fit, but since none of the others accepted my insurance I didn't have access to any of the other therapist. Kathylene Southard repeatedly ignored my input in my sessions, and numerous times inserted her own belief system into out sessions. I wish I'd left sooner.

Super Helpful

★★★★★
Super helpful, easy to schedule. Russ was great. Only problem was finding the place. Perhaps consider adding more clear directions for first-timers, as I ended up in the residential building searching for the suite and was almost late I had to have a resident direct me to the rear of area where the entrance to the building is.
