Jocelyn St.Cyr, LICSW

Jocelyn is not accepting any new clients at this time. 

In my first several years as a therapist, I quickly noticed a pattern.  Client after client explained they had been in counseling for years before me, and that even though they knew why they were stuck, figuring out how to actually live a full life was frustrating and felt impossible.

I did not want to waste anyone's time by being just another talk therapist, which doesn't work on its own for healing trauma.

Therapy instead needed to be about equipping my clients with tools to get unstuck and restore hope that it is possible.

Therapy is about hope, healing and possibility

Now therapy with me is about looking at all of you - the parts that are in pain and the parts that reach for joy.

We work with your mind, heart, and body, the past and the present moment to bring healing from trauma. We think forward and move forward together.

I find so much joy when my clients are surprised by those moments  (the relationships, feelings, careers, and break-throughs) they thought they never would experience.  It's a great day (although yes, bittersweet) when my clients are ready to end therapy.

What it means to me to engage in
anti-oppressive therapy

We all bring different identities, relationships with power, and stories into the room, and they impact how we see each other, how we interpret what is happening, and how we move through our days. My job as a therapist is to acknowledge those identities, how power impacts our relationship, be willing to challenge my own way of viewing the world and be open to feedback, so that you have space to share your experiences without judgement or assumptions.

The Details:

I'm a learner. I'm always improving and growing. I attend new trainings, read and research constantly, and ask for feedback from my clients on a regular basis. I want to do the best I can to make sure what we are doing works for you, so it will work for the next client I meet.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW).  This means that I have a license to practice mental health therapy in the state of Massachusetts.   I received my graduate degree from Hunter College School of Social Work and I have been practicing for 15 years.

For several years I have worked with adults and children facing challenges from past physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, domestic violence, human trafficking, as well from events such as accidents and military trauma. My training and background are in the following therapy approaches:

  • Trainspotting (BSP)

  • Somatic/Body Approaches

  • Parts Work (DNMS)

  • Integrative Health

As a staff member at Healing Well Counseling, I am committed to training in trauma and ongoing learning in anti-oppressive approaches as I work with people with marginalized identities.
