Vanessa Goodman, LICSW, Psychotherapist

Effective therapy is a dynamic and interactive experience that includes identifying clear goals, potential solutions, as well as the development of knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to navigate life’s challenges.  I strive to bring an effective blend of experience, expertise, and action to the therapy process while providing a welcoming and safe environment to allow you to achieve your personal goals. I utilize an integrated and holistic treatment approach incorporating a variety of evidence based techniques, and incorporate relaxation, mindfulness and meditation practices. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, and parenting skills and work with latency age children, teens, adults and families.

I earned  my MSW from Boston College and am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I worked in adult and children’s services for many years within the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health and have had a private practice since 1998.
