Dena Ray, PhD, PhD, Psychologist in Wayland
I am feel very optimistic that people have the ability to change and create meaningful lives. I help my clients reach their goals. Voicing feelings and receiving support in a confidential, non-judgmental setting is essential. Through our work, my clients become more self-aware of emotional triggers, learn how their past affects the present, and how to make positive changes. I help with anxiety and depression, work extensively with couples, resolve insomnia and sleep disorders and help athletes achieve peak sport performance. I also help clients experiencing loss, grief and bereavement.
I rely on state of the art techniques to help my clients. Clients say my commitment, engagement and honesty help them feel comfortable and open up. Together, we figure out how perceptions can keep them stuck, how to alter their relationships or habits, adjust to life transitions, chronic illness, and more.
I have been in practice over 25 years, serving on staff at McLean Hospital and Harvard University Medical School. I have advanced training in marriage/couples therapy, insomnia and sleep disorders, maximizing athletes' sports performance, and geriatric psychology. I also use hypnotherapy for such problems as clenching teeth, test-taking and optimizing memory.
