with a Boston therapist
Life transitions can leave you feeling on edge and out of balance. They are often the times we ask ourselves what matters most in life.
Burn out smothers joy and purpose. A typical thought may be: “I have everything I need, so why is it that nothing makes me happy.”
Millennials were sold the American Dream and then offered it at a price too high to pay. Time says they are a generation of narcissism and entitlement (ouch! But that’s not all it says. Trust me, go read it.)
Older adults enter a time of caregiving, empty nesting, and aging. You will experience the joy and sadness of empty nesting, grief and self-sacrifice as a caregiver, and coping with the fear of death.
You may be experiencing one or more of these things and I am here to help you on your journey.
Many people find life overwhelming when there's too much on their plate. Most people who start Counseling for Burn Out feel trapped in a life they don't love. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe your creativity is nonexistent or you feel like you want to escape your life.
My approach to Self Exploration
One of the main topics I address is supporting people in self exploration. When you are in a moment of transition or burn out, it can be difficult to continue doing what’s best for you. Priorities shift and stress takes over.
There is a way out. In therapy you can create space to remember who you are and what your values are. We will begin with questions to ask yourself to get to know yourself. You will gain clarity and confidence as you understand yourself and your values. I want to empower you to prioritize yourself and ask the deeper questions about life.
I've helped millennials and older adults whose life is "perfect on paper" but know something is missing. You will leave counseling comfortable with the questions and feeling fulfilled. You are not entitled for satisfaction.
Life is hard enough. You don’t need to go through this alone. With the help of a Boston therapist you can get to the root issue and learn to love your life.

FAQs about therapy in Boston
I am deconstructing faith. Can self exploration therapy help?
Yes! Self exploration will ask the questions about who you are and what is important to you as you sort out your religious beliefs or non-beliefs. This is really about identifying what is most important to you, how you want to live your life, and making a path to get there. Book a consultation today to see if this is a good fit for you.
I am having a spiritual crisis. Is this for me?
This is NOT christian counseling, spiritual advisement, or affiliated with any religion. Therapy creates a neutral space for you to express yourself without judgment. If that is what you are looking for then let’s set up a time to talk. If you are wanting spiritual direction then I’d recommend you contact a religious leader in your community.
I am looking for non religious therapy. Does this qualify?
Definitely. At Safe Talk Therapy, you will never have religion pushed on you. We will explore what your values are and work towards your goals for self exploration.
Is it true that I don’t need therapy if I do have everything I need.
This may be the case if you feel happy and satisfied in life. The fact that you are here tells me that might not be the case. Usually we say this as a way of dismissing our problems because we’re not supposed to want more if on paper we have everything. This is a shame and it keeps you from getting curious about what is going on.
In sessions together, we would explore how having everything hasn’t met expectations and if the expectations are aligned with your values. It is hard to find a place where you can express dissatisfaction in the midst of abundance. If this is what you’ve been looking for, look no further.
