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 help 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. Reduced fees available where there is financial difficulty.

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 (college transitions to the outside world, aging, loss, caregiving for relatives, lack of support, questions around purpose and meaning). I welcome people from all communities. Insurance: I accept out-of-network insurance for individual therapy. I only accept private pay for couples therapy.
