Dr. Alessandra Urbano, Ph.D.
Dr. Alessandra Urbano is a licensed psychologist who provides individual therapy, couples counseling, and group therapy for adults in downtown Boston and Northampton, MA. Her approach to therapy is both theory and research driven, relies heavily on forming an honest and trusting therapeutic relationship, and draws upon a combination of relational, insight oriented, and emotion focused therapies. She believes that a combination of insight (i.e., self awareness building) and strategies for improved coping and relational functioning (i.e., skill building) tailored for the unique needs of each client provides a strong foundation for effective therapy.
Dr. Urbano specializes in working with individuals who tend to feel misunderstood, anxious, or lonely, and who aim to increase their comfort with themselves, their feelings, and others. Other areas of interest and expertise include family struggles, grief, anger, mood management, depression, relationship issues, communication skill-building, trauma, stress management, and identity development.
