Comprehensive Behavioral Health Services in Boston & Newton, MA
Commonwealth Psychology Associates (CPA) offers a wide range of behavioral health services designed to help clients lead more fulfilling, productive, and healthy lives. We utilize psychological and behavior change principles to help clients develop goals and implement positive changes in their lives. While we address difficulties clients may be having, we also work with clients to help them identify and employ the many strengths, internal resources, and positive attributes that they possess. Our approach to assessment and treatment includes aspects of Positive Psychology, which focuses more on people's strengths and abilities than on their weaknesses. We believe that incorporating this approach leads to greater change and lasting benefits for clients.
As well as offering psychotherapy, counseling, and coaching services for individuals and couples, CPA also specializes in psychological and neuropsychological assessment and in health psychology. Our assessment services help clinicians and clients more quickly identify areas of concern, determine the nature and extent of potential problems, and identify targets for treatment. Together, the clinician and the client can then map out the most effective treatment plan. This process frequently yields a better use of the client's time, more effective treatment planning, and, ultimately, better outcomes.
CPA's health psychology services provide crucial support, tools, and resources for clients who are struggling with heath-related concerns or who simply want to focus on improving their physical health. Through services such as stress management, biofeedback, and cognitive-behavioral therapy, CPA's health psychologists help clients achieve the behavioral changes necessary to improve their overall health.
