Victoria Grinman, LICSW, LCSW-R, MSW, CFTP, CA, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Waltham
I am a clinical therapist and professor who's transitioned from NYC to Massachusetts. Many times, challenges, pain, loss, and even suffering hold just as much a place in our lives as happiness, joy, peace and triumph. Utilizing best-practices and empirical knowledge, my hope is for our journey to be an intricate process of joining and receiving; discovering and growing; learning and practicing. My approach is integrative, taking into consideration all the systems within you, including race, culture and environment. I aim to hold a warm and supportive space wherein empowerment, balance and growth can be achieved.
I work with people of all ages, with specialized experience in treating children and teens special needs, and their families. I am proud to offer parent coaching, yoga / mindfulness based therapy, body-based approaches, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) techniques, Play Therapy, relational and Psycho-dynamic approaches.

Victoria Grinman's Groups

Social Skills/Activities Group for Young Adults

This group is geared towards young adults (18-21 and 20-25) who are living with Autism or differences in life persepctives (participants do not need a diagnosis of ASD to benefit, however). This group meets once a week to facilitate meeting of new friends, try new things in the city (karaoke, bowling, movies, dinner, navigating, etc), learn/ practice social skills, and gain more confidence and independence. The group is led by an experienced clinician with expertise in ASD. The group meets in a designated location and duration of activities is from 2-4 hours.
