sean blackburn, mA
licensed professional counselor
I specialize in individual therapy with adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and addiction. I work from a psychodynamic perspective in therapy, which means that I am interested in unconscious motivations that could be contributing to dissatisfaction in life. I take great interest in dreams and recurring fantasies and see them as useful in therapy if the client ever wants to process them.
I received my master's degree in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary where I learned to integrate faith and psychology. Although I practice from a Christian worldview, I do not limit my clientele to the Christian community. I am open to working with men and women from all backgrounds of faith and non-faith.
I attempt to maintain a benign curiosity to try and understand the inner world of the people I work with. Along the way, my hope is to communicate warmth, empathy, and non-judgment to the person sharing their story with me, in hopes that they can respond the same way to themselves someday.
