Maria E Leblanc, MEd, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Hadley
Hello ! A guiding principle in my work is the belief that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance. Neuroscientific literature supports the curative powers of deep empathic attunement (limbic resonance) and the brain/body's ability to heal.. As such, in addition to attending to you with the same level of respectful presence that I would expect in a therapist, I use both cognitive/emotional and body/mind tools to assist you in your healing. I recognize that it takes courage to enter a therapeutic relationship and I think you will find me warm, genuine, empathic,and knowledgeable.
While my work is predominantly influenced by relational/attachment, cognitive-behavioral and aspects of psychodynamic theory, I also integrate body/mind theories. I am flexible and open to hearing what works for you. Areas of interest include past childhood abuse/trauma, mood /anxiety disorders and the application of compassion, and mindfulness/meditation techniques.
I am very open to discussion of spiritual, existential and philosophical concerns or beliefs regardless of orientation. I am particular interested in the integration of psychological and philosophical/spiritual concepts in healing psychological issues as well as managing everyday stressors.
