Psychotherapy Services for Adults
We are experienced, interactive, feminist therapists who believe that the therapeutic relationship must be compassionate, trustworthy and genuine. We emphasize that therapy is an active, collaborative process of working toward self-acceptance and change. Insight, tolerance of feeling and specific behavioral strategies may all be useful toward this end.
We work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and conflicts in relationships. We have developed expertise in the treatment of trauma, including especially the widespread effects of violence against women, parenting challenges and difficulties in the workplace.
Throughout the therapeutic process our focus is on helping clients identify strengths and understand the sources of their pain. Equally importantly, we support the development and recognition of their resourcefulness, resilience and competence.

Maria Cimino, L.I.C.S.W.

Beth Cowett, L.I.C.S.W.
Beth Cowett is a seasoned therapist who has been working with adults of all ages since 1995. She assists those looking to relieve anxiety and depression, cope with loss or life transitions, and build more meaningful and satisfying relationships.
She believes that open expression of feelings and telling personal truths in a trusting environment can be deeply healing. Through gentle, direct feedback, practical suggestions, and humor, she helps individuals to identify personal goals and tackle barriers to achieving these goals. Slowing down, taking time for yourself, and developing non-judgmental awareness of your feelings will relieve discomfort and isolation.
Beth has special training in treating trauma as well as specific interest in women's issues across the life span, including fertility issues and adoption.
Betsy Hinden, Ph.D.
Betsy Hinden is a clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience. Although her approach is primarily relational and psycho-dynamic, mindfulness and acceptance practices are an integral part of her work. She has developed expertise in working with people who are struggling with experiences of trauma broadly defined, and with the feelings of loss and grief, depression and anxiety that often accompany these experiences. Her therapeutic focus is on co-creating a safe and deeply healing relationship in which you can feel less alone and become more aware of the nature and dynamics of your struggle. Ultimately, the goal of working together in therapy will be to use this awareness to support clients in feeling more connected to themselves and others, and to be better able to make the choices that allow them to live full and meaningful lives.
