Although, medication  management is Jill’s specialty, that is just “a piece to the puzzle” as she feels being self-aware of the  matter and incorporating different techniques can be beneficial. The overall well-being of someone’s  mental health should be treated no different than a medical diagnosis.

If you have ever found yourself looking in the mirror of your life and come up with unanswered questions such as "Who am I?" and "Why did this and that happen?", your vision can feel blurred. Many times this can prevent you from seeing the wonderful person that lies within. Self-reflections can be filled with anxiety, anger, past traumas, unprocessed grief, betrayal, rejection, and resentment filled with a life of abuse and despair. Our emotions can throw off our focus and concentration.

Crystal centers on helping people manage their emotions and identify how particular thought patterns can lead to challenging behaviors and emotional distress. She will meet you where you are emotionally and academically. Crystal can help you find understanding about your life and the courage to identify the purpose behind your pain. Life can have significance even in the unhappiest of circumstances and the inspiration for living comes from discovering that meaning.

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.

Thriveworks Counseling Worcester

Transformational

★★★★★
I have been seeing Jeffrey White for four months now, to deal with longstanding issues related to a traumatic childhood. He has taught me so much about how trauma affects the body and mind and how to change that. That education, along with his compassion and encouragement have helped me get to a place of calm and confidence that would have seemed impossible to me before starting therapy. I'm so grateful for his help - it's been transformational for me.

Jeffrey White Therapist Review

★★★★★
I have been a client of Jeffrey White from Thriveworks for a few months now. We meet weekly and after each session I feel educated and heard. His ability to hold space for me is recognized and appreciated ten fold. Our sessions involve a combination of therapy and coaching, and I couldn't ask for someone better to just listen to me and provide objective feedback. If you are looking for an educated, thoughtful, and inspirational therapist, Jeff White is your person.

Jeffrey White – Best Counseling and Therapist I ever had

★★★★★
Me and my husband are having counseling therapy with Jeffrey White, he not only is a compassionate person but the only professional that has been able to clearly identify the root of our issues and work with us in ways that makes us feel absolutely confident that we are becoming stronger as individuals and also a better couple. We are incredibly grateful to have him as a therapist and every time we finish a session with him, we can't wait to till the next one!
