Therapist recommendations in Somerville/Cambridge/Boston?

Looking for a therapist in or near (ranking order of preference here): Porter Square, Somerville/Cambridge/Boston on the Red Line, Cambridge/Boston on other subway lines.

I'm thinking it's time for me to go to talk to someone. It's been a while since I last did so, and I'm undergoing a bit of a life transition now in which a lot of older issues are kind of coming to the forefront in a way that makes me want to finally dispense with them in a productive way, if I can, or at least make some positive steps. I'd like to work with someone who's good at working with anxiety, self-esteem, and trust issues, particularly with relationships. I'm not married to any particular therapeutic framework, but I would like someone who's a patient and compassionate listener. I'm a straight white male, late 20s, no special religious or cultural sensitives to take into account, and I don't think I really have a preference for a male or female therapist. My insurance is BCBS so I have a range of choices available in this area, and I'm finding that a little daunting (the provider directory for psychologists alone is staggering!) Any help would be appreciated.

I had excellent experiences with both Dr. Tomomi Inomata and Dr. Virginia Tay when I was in Boston on BCBS. Their practices are on Mass Ave. between Harvard Square and Central Square, about 10 minutes from the Harvard Square T station.

Feel free to MeMail me with any specific questions.

I don't have much to offer, but I found that making the decision to seek help itself was the biggest step when I was having anxiety issues. So, good on you, sir.

And in the meantime, perhaps Ze Frank's little ditty can help while you search for the right match.
