Jasper J. Lawson, Ph.D
Gay male, African American clinical psychologist licensed in Massachusetts since 1982. AASECT certified sex therapist. Graduate of the McLean Hospital Human Sexuality Institute. Specialized and advanced training in working with couples. Have completed several years of continuing education in working with LGBTQ clients.Establishing a trusting relationship with the client is a central feature of my clinical approach, I am a strong believer in the mutual construction of treatment goals early in the process. These goals should attainable, be measurable and provide a significant degree of stress reduction to the client. The use of self-help groups, homework outside of the session and reading assignments are strongly encouraged.My treatment philosophy combines the best features of the interpersonal approach, cognitive-behavioral methods and solution-focused therapy.
