Robert M Purdy, MEd, LMHC, Counselor in Lynn
Forming a positive and interpersonal therapeutic relationship with each patient is fundamental to developing effective coping skills, fostering a deeper self-knowledge, and ultimately achieving a sustainable whole-self. It is of great importance to me, that the person seeking my services comes to believe in themselves and in their own potential for achieving wholeness, healing and strength. I utilize empathetic, supportive language and other therapeutic methods to enhance and actualize treatment success. I have been working effectively with patients for more than 15 years, creating a warm and naturally therapeutic environment.
Treatment includes using cognitive-behavioral therapy resulting in a positive change of thinking and behaviors. With a solution-focused and results-oriented approach, patients experience positive and integral change and a healthy and empowering transformation.
As a veteran I work with veterans and their families concerning reintegration into civilian life, relationship, work & social issues, PTSD, grief & loss issues. In addition, I have had many years providing grief & bereavement support concerning end-of-life issues and grief/loss response due to traumatic life-transitions.
