Therapy & Counseling | Cambridge, MA
Dorothy Yep is a licensed independent clinical social worker who has more than 25 years of experience in a broad range of clinical settings. She focuses on building therapeutic alliances with individuals and families who may have anxiety, trauma, mood, depression, emotion regulation, diversity/multiculturalism, identity/self-esteem, and chronic behavioral health issues.
She has expertise in using integrated interventions to help clients, such as psychodynamic attachment theory, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Restructuring for PTSD, and Emotion Regulation for Cognitively Challenged Clients. Assisting clients who are often involved in complex family and other environments to identify patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, as well as building on strengths to develop new skills and ways of addressing challenges, she aims to foster mental health and growth for a “life worth living.” Dorothy’s approach centers on reflective listening, empathic understanding, and attunement.
