Karen Silver, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist


About Me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist located in Wellesley, MA. I provide individual therapy to adolescents, college students, and adults, and utilize evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based interventions.

I primarily utilize a CBT approach while integrating mindfulness and other techniques to the work when appropriate. I employ an active, collaborative, and individualistic approach to treatment with a validating stance.

I work well with adolescents, young adults, and adults struggling with a wide range of issues including social and generalized anxiety, OCD, panic, depression, and emotion regulation. I also enjoy working with individuals going through significant life transitions, such as adjustment to college, parenting, or divorce.

  • Individual therapy to adolescents and adults
