Russell Healy, DSW, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Somerville
Finding the right therapist is important. I have been practicing psychotherapy for 30 years. Experience has taught me what works. My approach is honest, down to earth, and free of trend-driven techniques. Working with a non-judgmental therapist who understands you is essential, especially If you have concerns regarding sexual identity or sexual behavior. I am also a gender specialist who assists transgender adolescents and adults. Other specialties include interpersonal relationship issues, compulsive Internet use, depression, anxiety, and grief/loss. I work well with people who appreciate a confidential, personalized, and integrative approach. One size does not fit all.
I believe that psychotherapy is still the best way to solve life's problems, whether they are sexual, relational, or behavioral. My approach is pragmatic, tailored to your unique experience and situation. Transgender clients seeking gender confirming assessment and counseling can expect a safe space, and respectful, non-pathologizing care.
I am not an in-network provider, but I will work with your out of network benefits. This is the best way I can protect your privacy. Those without insurance or reimbursement can expect a reduced fee. I believe therapy works best when a high standard of confidentiality is met.
