Dr. Michael Koren is a Clinical Psychologist in Cambridge, MA. He works with adults of all ages who are striving to live their lives with less stress and greater purpose. Many of his clients come in when they realize events from the past are impacting their relationships and self-worth now, or when depression, anxiety, and stress become overwhelming. Dr. Koren pulls from evidence-based approaches to tailor treatment to each individual, creating a new toolkit to help them meet their goals.
Dr. Koren has deep expertise in trauma, which can take many forms, including physical symptoms such as frequent illness or difficulty sleeping, as well as chaotic relationship histories. He works closely with each client to find a balanced daily routine, which might include mindfulness practices or practical problem-solving skills. At the heart of his work is a strong therapeutic relationship, where no issue is too big or too small to be safely explored.
Dr. Koren’s goal is to help clients rediscover their sense of meaning and purpose through a combination of existential dialogue and concrete coping strategies.
