Myra Durkin, MSW, LICSW

I am a clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience working with adolescents and adults. Clients say I am warm, engaging, compassionate and non-judgmental, and provide a comfortable, relaxed and safe environment. Humor is very important to me in my work.

My approach is eclectic; I collaborate with each client to find the right treatment approach that is uniquely tailored to his or her needs. I use a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, relaxation therapy, mindfulness meditation, and self-hypnosis.

I specialize in a variety of issues, including stress/anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, sex therapy, eating disorders/problems,  self-esteem problems, chronic illness, pain, smoking/habit cessation, and more. I also have expertise in working with clients to overcome performance anxiety and creative blocks -- in the arts, athletics and the workplace.

I help clients find and build on their strengths, so that no matter what the reasons were that brought them to therapy, they become able to appreciate themselves in a deep and lasting way.


Virtual Gastric Band- I have recently introduced the Virtual Gastric Band procedure to the Boston area. This procedure is a replacement for weight-loss surgery.  I am one of a select handful of therapists trained in this technique in the US, and the first in the Boston area.
