Middle Way Counseling and Consulting

Support, Connection & Transformation for Mental Health

Licensed Therapist

I am a licensed therapist, and I have spent my career helping people overcome personal and mental health challenges with courage and strength.

Life Isn't Fun Anymore

Is every day a struggle? Do you wake up anxious, depressed, or exhausted? Perhaps you dread the fights you know the day will bring, and feel frustrated that no matter what you do, the life you want seems to be beyond your grasp.

People Don't Understand You

Maybe your spouse, partner, manager or someone else has told you that you have a problem, but you don’t know how to fix it. Maybe you don’t see it or agree with their perspective.

Asking for Help

Asking for help can be difficult, and it makes some people feel uncomfortable. Having the right therapy and support can empower you to change your situation more quickly, more safely, and more completely than trying to do it alone.

Does This Sound Like You?

  • Do you long for a life that is different to the one you are living?
  • Have you tried to change things on your own but have not seen the progress you hoped for?
  • Have you worked with a mental health professional and still still feel stuck?

How I Help

For many years I was a clinical team leader at the Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA, where I received advanced clinical training in the treatment of mood, personality, and trauma-related disorders. My approach is based on clinical evidence and the latest research.

I will collaborate with you through every step, and we will progress at a pace that will challenge but not overwhelm you.

With the right treatment, you can expect meaningful change and growth.”
– Dena B. Tranen, LCSW
