Mary Bruce-Owenby

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

We are all capable of growth. Through secure tele-therapy/online sessions, I aim to provide a space for self exploration and healing through the cultivation of insight, understanding, and compassion. Together, we look into the inner conflicts that are obstacles on the path to a more fulfilled life.

My Approach

Individuals: Psychodynamic and Gestalt therapies are unique forms of psychotherapy that aim to provide a deep sense of relief from the pain that blocks the way to a fulfilled self and life. I am also informed by Buddhist psychology. Together, through explorations into your emotional life, thoughts, dreams, and memories, we understand and work through unsatisfying patterns toward a more robust sense of self and an expanded capacity for creativity, work, and love. Couples: I thoroughly enjoy helping couples move from pain and isolation to joy and connection. I have specific training and expertise working with couples--using the psychodynamic model combined with the hands-on approach of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to work collaboratively with you to de-escalate negative cycles, establish emotional safety, and begin the process of restructuring emotional patterns and rebuilding the bond so that you get back to enjoying and connecting.

My Background

I have a BA from Wellesley College, an MA in clinical psychology from Antioch University, and see a diverse range of younger and older adults. I have specialized training in depression, anxiety, trauma, and couples work, and I also see many seeking a space to explore phase of life changes (aging, caregiving for relatives, lack of support, questions around purpose and meaning). I welcome people from all communities.
