Welcome!

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Concord, MA where I provide counseling for adults, older teens, and families. I understand that reaching out and taking the steps to find a therapist can be difficult and intimidating. It is also an important decision that exhibits strength and courage. It is my goal to make this process as stress-free, simple, and supportive as possible. Feel free to review my website to learn more about me and don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to schedule a meeting or have any questions.

About Me

My areas of focus include working with clients and their families, who are experiencing:

  • Boy's/Men's Issues
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement & Loss
  • Eating & Exercise Disorders
  • Carers of Individuals with Mental Illness

It is my goal to make this process as stress-free, simple, and supportive as possible. I believe that building a therapeutic relationship with compassion, empathy, and respect is the most important aspect of therapy and helping clients improve their lives. I use a strengths-based and client-centered approach to therapy and work to create a safe and supportive place that fosters resilience and vulnerability for each client. 

I work from a collaborative and integrative therapeutic framework of different knowledge bases and techniques, including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, and art and expressive therapies, among many others. Due to my background in art, I have a particular interest in using a variety of art media, including photography, drawing, poetry, and writing to connect with my clients and explore their difficulties. However, I am careful not to subscribe to one approach and I work closely with each client to create specific goals that fulfill their individual needs. 

In addition to my private practice, I am an adjunct professor and Ph.D. student at Simmons College. I completed my undergraduate degree in fine arts (BFA) at The School of Visual Arts and my masters degree in social work (MSW) at Wheelock College. I have worked with clients in a variety of levels of care, including day treatment and home-based services with Riverside Community Care, the emergency room at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, residential at Monte Nido & Affiliates, and outpatient with Jeff's Place and the Mutli-Service Eating Disorder Association (MEDA).

I have a strong passion for group work and was previously a board member of the International Association of Social Workers with Groups (IASWG), Massachusetts Chapter. I have presented at international and national conferences, a variety of local universities, as well as had articles published in academic journals. I also created Finding Focus, which is a therapeutic photography curriculum that helps individuals find a voice and show their perspective and experience of the world through their own photographs. Finally, my art has been shown in international, national, and online exhibitions.

In my free time I enjoy cycling open roads, hiking up mountains, camping in the woods, writing, photography, and making all types of art.

Testimonials

I am fortunate to be able to refer to Kyle Ganson as both my colleague and friend. We have shared numerous clients, engaged in thoughtful clinical conversation, and share a mutual desire to positively affect change in the lives of our clients. In the time that I have known Kyle, I have witnessed his ability to deeply connect to his clients, to challenge them compassionately, and to support them in making sustainable life changes. Kyle’s energy is contagious, and he undoubtedly possesses the therapeutic skill to harness that energy and share it with those around him. He’s deeply passionate about mental health, is ever seeking knowledge, and freely shares what he knows with those around him. He is a wealth of insight, and a gift to the clinical community. I count myself lucky to be able to use Kyle as a resource, as a trusted peer, and as a thoughtful, reliable therapist for my clients.

It has been a great pleasure to have worked alongside Kyle as a trusted colleague. I have seen him to be a thoughtful and caring therapist, always focused on providing the best care possible for each one of his clients. In residential settings, his knowledgeable and creative style made his group sessions favorites of clients. He creates group processes that move people toward insight and change within an atmosphere of fun and connectedness. I highly recommend Kyle for anyone starting or continuing his or her healing journey, for his skill, kindness, humor, and collaborative nature.
