Description

To better understand my practice and to read detailed reviews from actual clients, please visit my web site www.mountauburncc.com. Because my practice is located in Harvard Square, Cambridge, many of my clients are local university affiliated faculty, students, and staff. As an adjunct to therapy, I encourage clients to utilize a wide range of community resources such as health and fitness programs, AA,and career networking groups. In addition to my psychotherapy and counseling practice at Mount Auburn Counseling Center, I am a Red Cross Disaster Mental Health Specialist. I served on the First Response Team that aided victims' families of 9/11 and I assisted in the Hurricane Katrina Relief effort, living in a shelter near New Orleans counseling survivors. Additionally, I co-authored, with my colleague and son, an award winning children's book, "Sugar Was My Best Food: Diabetes and Me" which focuses on a child's perspective of diabetes.”...

I started seeing Kyle when I was going through a really rough time. During this period I would feel very overwhelmed at times, Kyle helped me focus and prioritize and get my life back on track. She has also helped me gain a sense of confidence which has allowed me to start a new career and begin dating again. I would highly recommend Kyle to anyone seeking a therapist.

My first session with Kyle was in 2011while I was in the process of getting a divorce, and I've been seeing her on an ongoing basis since.

I have been seeing Kyle as a Therapist off and on for about 25 years (wow, hard to believe!)... I first saw her when I graduated college and then here and there as things have come up in life that needed tending to. At one point I was living in Plymouth but I would still drive to Cambridge to have a visit or two with her. I have always found Kyle to be very insightful and sincerely very caring, al...

I have been going to Mount Auburn Counseling for awhile. Kyle has really helped me make much better choices in friendships and relationships. I've figured out better ways to deal with a problematic childhood. She supported me when I left a job I'd been in since college, went to grad school, and started a new career. Kyle's levity, intelligence, and humor make her excellent at what she does. She li...

Kyle provides a comfortable and safe environment for open discussions and directly coaches/engages her patients towards strategies that are effective and lasting. I have seen mental health professionals in the past and, in comparison, have found Kyle's style of holding her patients directly accountable in achieving their personal goals to be more effective and lasting. She provides creative soluti...

One thing I especially appreciate about Kyle is how she manages her fees. She is clear in setting expectations but willing to work with whatever methods work for her client, within reason. She gives ample notice of any changes. For example, when I began seeing Kyle I was covered by Blue Cross. At some point Kyle decided that it was no longer viable for her to accept Blue Cross. She gave about two ...

Description of Work
What's really remarkable about Kyle Carney is that she really cares. I've been seeing her for about a year, with about a month's time passing between appointments; she remembers everything from one month to the next, and it's clear that she's been thinking about me in between. Like everyone else I know, I juggle many challenges -- career angst, the search for personal fulfillment; relationship issues (spouse, parent/siblings, grown children), financial worries -- and it's hard to avoid being overwhelmed and discouraged. Kyle brings the clarity that's needed to put each challenge into perspective and then figure out a way to gather the inner resources to deal with it. I can't think of any issue I wouldn't be comfortable bringing up with Kyle, or confident in her ability to shine a light on it. She may not be a fairy godmother, but she certainly is the intelligent, insightful, and empathetic friend you may be looking for, if you're looking for a therapist.
