Ben Kudler, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Boston
Carl Jung once said, "the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being." I offer compassionate and custom-tailored individual and couples therapy to people seeking to make meaning of their experiences, to advance their self-understanding, and to improve the quality of their lives. Through an eclectic approach that combines my background in strengths-based psychodynamic training with behavioral techniques (drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), I use an interactive style to help you clarify the root of struggles, identify barriers, and create pathways to move forward.
I am experienced working with adults and adolescents, individuals and couples, and also leading groups. My expertise includes working with survivors of various forms of trauma, individuals in the LGB & T communities, male survivors of sexual violence, sexual compulsivity, and people living with HIV/AIDS and other long-term illness.
Interventions are custom-tailored to your needs. My practice includes on-going supportive therapy, shorter-term solution-focused therapy, as well as focused therapy around gender/sexuality issues (ex: coming out, transition). I believe in holistic approaches to health and encourage a balance of physical, spiritual, medical, and therapeutic interventions.
