“With over 20 years of experience in the field of helping others, I have learned that making a genuine connection with people is the best way in which to begin the work of therapy. One of the most important skills I have to offer is to carefully and compassionately listen to what you have to say. We then go from there; when you are ready, we begin to look at how to change.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LICSW, BCD, ACSW
“Most people find consulting with a therapist helpful: the nonjudgemental and respectful approach that therapists take is essential to developing a good relationship. With psychotherapy, it is possible to make changes in your life that you may have been contemplating, but have not been able to accomplish. Seeking early help tends to keep problems from becoming overwhelming. I am a seasoned therapist: I have been practicing psychotherapy for 25+ years, and I am comfortable working with a wide variety of people. I particularly enjoy working with couples on marital or family issues, and individuals experiencing depression or life stress.

Ruth Lull, Psychologist  in Acton
“Maturity, empathy and well developed listening skills are assets which I offer. I've been especially interested in helping women during pregnancy, and the postpartum period and resolving grief and loss from miscarriages. In addition, addressing issues of depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress in men or women is especially gratifying to me. I often begin by teaching techniques for stress reduction, or in the case of lethargic depression, ways to energize the body, which help people function better quickly. Most important to me is helping people find hidden strengths and restore inner balance.

“Are you struggling with feelings and behaviors which you don't seem to be able to control? Are you wondering whether there is ANYTHING that can help? The answer is YES.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LICSW
“My first priority as your therapist is to provide an environment in which you can speak freely about your concerns while I listen and reflect back to you in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. You may need new coping skills, new perspectives or a way to heal beyond old difficulties that remain unresolved. I will help you clarify what your intentions are and help you to be more compassionate with yourself during the process. One of the goals is to be more content and more at peace with yourself and in your relationships with others.

James Hannon, Drug & Alcohol Counselor  in Acton
Verified by Psychology Today
Drug & Alcohol Counselor, PhD, LADC-I
“Half of my patients are recovering from addictions. Many of them and many of my other patients have mood disorders (anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder). I also work with individuals and families struggling with problems in work and career, marriage and similar relationships, and what are often described as existential or spiritual crises-the lack of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. I involve families in the therapy process whenever possible. People don't live and learn as isolated individuals. The involvement of family and friends in therapy sheds light on the patient's situation and facilitates change within the family.

Paul Gron, Psychologist  in Acton
“The way psychotherapy is practiced has a lot to do with the mind set and life experience of the psychologist. I have been in private practice since 1980, and beyond the traditional training for psychologists, I also trained extensively in an approach known as Psychology of Mind, or Health Realization. This is a cognitive approach that is very down-to-earth but rooted in principles akin to those behind meditation, yoga and similar traditions that were developed to enhance optimal human functioning.
