I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in private practice in the state of Massachusetts. I work with adults and emerging adults including individuals across sexual and gender identity spectrums. I work jointly with emerging adults to negotiate this stressful transitional period improving mental health and social functioning. I have special clinical interest in perinatal mood disorders, anxiety and adjustment issues and have worked extensively with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, gender identity and equality, LGBTQQ issues, self esteem, and trauma. I believe that each person's path towards healing and wellness is unique and I am prepared to offer a variety of interventions.
I have a Master of Social Work from University of Illinois - Chicago and a Bachelor of Art in Sociology from Clark University. I draw on a wide range of clinical and non-profit experiences including my work with new parents, members of the LGBTQQ community, college students, and working professionals. Prior to opening my private practice within Harvard Counseling Associates in 2017, I worked as a clinician with Life Management Associates, a group practice in Harvard, MA.
My approach is client-centered and relational, drawing on one’s strengths to help encourage healing and change. I believe that healing takes place within relationships, and I aim to create a warm and collaborative environment in which my clients and I together can explore, grow and heal.

As an experienced clinical social worker, my goal is to help you to reach your goals. Whether you are facing a loss, a life transition or other challenges, my work with you focuses on partnering to identify and enhance your strengths, look at limiting beliefs stemming from your experience, to achieve your identified goals of treatment. I believe that in our lifetimes we go through a series of transitions and these transitions have the potential to lead to transformation. As a therapist, my role is to facilitate insight and understanding of the impact your experiences have had on your life and to support you in reaching your goals, optimizing your life satisfaction in your personal and professional relationships.
I utilize various approaches in counseling including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strength Based and Mind-Body modalities. I believe in using humor, creativity and an open, non-judgmental curiosity in my approach with you.
I am a graduate of Columbia University School of Social Work with 28 years of experience in the field. I work with adolescents (16+) and adults in individual counseling. Call me, and we can talk a bit first to see if I may be a fit for your needs.

Roe Kolanowski, LICSW
Life presents us with many challenges, often unexpected and frequently traumatic. In over 30 years of practice, I have had the privilege of counseling individuals and couples as they transform life's challenges into new possibilities. Working from a relationship based perspective, I provide a safe, actively engaged environment in which to gain self understanding, heal painful wounds, strengthen connections and develop coping skills.
Knowing that our physical and emotional health is profoundly effected by the quality of our relationships, I work with couples to identify negative patterns of interaction, to better understand both their own and their partner's emotional needs and to develop security, trust and closeness through a deepened connection.
My work is grounded in attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy. I work with adults and the elderly across a wide spectrum of issues including anxiety, depression, mood disorders, stress management, illness and loss. I specialize in the practice of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
