Tiesha Reyes, LCSW

If you are seeking a Stoughton mental health counselor or therapist, you will be pleased to know individuals like Tiesha are here to help Stoughton residents and individuals seeking Stoughton area counseling needs.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Master Degree from Wheelock College. I have been serving adolescents and adults (specifically women) with substance use and dual diagnosis disorders in residential settings for over 10 years. My area of specialties include but are not limited to: Trauma, Substance Use and Dependency, Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Attention Deficit Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Body Image, Relationship Challenges, legal involvement, and life transitions. My approaches vary to meet the needs and preference of the client; such as Person-Centered, Strengths-Based, Psychoeducation, Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Trauma Informed Care, and Solution-focused therapy.

Despite how challenging our life can get, it is my belief that we all possess the ability to empower ourselves and regain control over our lives. Therapy is not an instant process and can sometimes feel overwhelming. It is important to be patient with yourself and your healing, celebrate your growth, and hold yourself accountable for the progress you make. I offer therapy, guidance, counseling, and therapeutic support in an environment that is safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental.

Julie Lambert, LCSW

Are you ready to live better?

Hi, I’m Julie and hold an LCSW as a Licensed Therapist in Massachusetts plus an LSW in New York. The combination of 12 plus years of clinical experience, education/training and personal trauma has influenced my ability to connect to and attend to an individual’s psychological barriers making way for significant changes and a more fulfilling life.

In my years as Clinician, Trainer, Educator and Director in New York City, Chicago and Massachusetts, I have provided quality therapeutic services to positively impact a multitude of people. More recently, I discovered the magic of art as therapy during a very critical time in my own life which is currently being integrated into work with individuals experiencing a range of stored trauma (PTSD) anxiety and depression.  Compassion, intuition and clinical expertise has always informed my scope of practice.  Results in your psychological and personal growth will be evident as we unlock the subconscious and make way for your psychological health.  Recently, I have been working with young adults in the wake of the pandemic who are experiencing significant social anxiety and depression.

My approach is multidimensional.  We each hold personal thoughts, beliefs and perceptions.   It is in our work together, creating a safe, trusting environment that you can find improved ways to cope and feel happier.  My experience informs me that self-reflection, self- love and care can catapult anyone’s ability to evolve and prosper.

Juliett St. Louis

Juliett St. Louis, LCSW

Works with: 

  • Adolescent
  • Young adults
  • Adults
  • Seniors

Therapy Approach:

Initial therapy session can feel a bit business-like, so my first goal is be welcoming and set a warm and comfortable tone. During therapy, I hope that we can work through barriers that can help you better understand what you’re experiencing. Generally, you’ll be the one directing the session. However, through guidance, support and active listening, therapy sessions will allow us to spend time exploring ways for you to grow and increase self-acceptance.

As your therapist you can expect to spend some time discussing challenging situations, emotions, and behaviors that have or is affecting your life. In addition to this, certain topics may lead us to speaking on thoughts in your mind from the present or past, which will allow us to establish thoughts and behavior patterns that might be contributing to distress, anxiety, depression, or etc. This will allow us to explore the connection between your unconscious mind and your actions. Another approach may involve sessions that work on developing skills to cope with distressing or challenging situations. In this way you can learn how to accept and deal with difficult emotions when or if they should arise. The last process, will involve termination of therapy, which will include looking back on the course of treatment and saying goodbye.

Specialty:

  • Narrative Therapy
  • Talk Therapy
  • CBT Therapy
  • DBT Therapy
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Body Image

Get to Know:

As your therapist, I would expect the therapeutic journey will allow us to walk through your life experiences, dilemmas, and struggles that are important to you. I hope at the end of therapy, you will become the best version of you, to achieve your life goals
