We believe in deep healing
Healing from experiences that have hurt you at the core requires healing at the core. That means sometimes, the healing we provide has to go deeper than words. We talk, but we also provide practical take-home tools to heal from deep hurts.
We believe in the power of healing relationships
Healing relationships are at the center of the work we do. It is the foundation. Healing relationships are what restore the pain from broken relationships.
We believe in transformation through humility
We believe that trauma healing only happens within the communities and structures that recognize its tendency to be complicit in reinforcing trauma through oppression. As therapists, we recognize the power dynamics implicit in our roles. We commit to continually listening, assessing, and addressing - however imperfectly - the ways in which our identities, actions, systems, policies and processes can impact people of all races, sexualities, genders, body types, abilities, social positions and religions. To us, that means we never arrive there, but maintain a constant posture of listening, learning, re-evaluation, action and humility.
We believe in community
We don't heal in a vacuum. We heal in community. We build community where needed. We take care of each other. We honor the strengths of the community around us. We provide holistic care by partnering with healers of all types around us.
About the name "Healing Well Counseling"
In some places, a water well is the center of a community. It's the place people go to to get not only their physical need for water met, but also for connection. They go to connect with people from other communities and to share stories and to be known. Then, after the return home, they pass on all they've received from the well to their neighbors and loved ones.
We are the same... although not so much a water well as a healing well. People from all over the Greater Boston area come to this place for the one thing: emotional healing... but also leave with connection: feeling seen, known, and heard. But all of that doesn't stay in the office. Our clients pass on all they receive to their own communities and loved ones.
Our goal is a ripple effect. We want to sthe dark places in our communities and world transformed. We want to see healing, hope, light, and wholeness brought more far and wide than we can imagine.
