About Dr. Strong

 provide therapy to adults and have experience treating a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression,  eating/body image issues, LGBT-specific concerns and the effects of traumatic experiences. I also have a particular affinity and interest in working with those who have suffered from racism, homophobia, disability discrimination and other forms of oppression. My practice is sex-positive and kink- and poly-friendly.

My therapeutic s
tyle integrates approaches from several schools of thought. I help my patients understand how their past and unconscious experiences shape who they are and I also help them develop skills for coping with life problems. This integrative style helps patients to effectively link their past, present, and future.  I also value the healing power of relationships, which includes the relationship between patient and therapist.

I am committed to a collaborative approach to therapy and I value the input of my patients about what they want out of treatment. I also offset the intensity of psychotherapy with a wry sense of humor. 

Background

I am a licensed psychologist in Massachusetts. I received my doctorate in psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in the San Francisco Bay Area and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. In the past, I have worked in schools and community mental health settings, and I completed my postdoctoral training at the Stone Center Counseling Service at Wellesley College. I have also previously worked as a staff psychologist at the Harvard University Mental Health Service.
