Han Bertrand

Psychotherapist in Massachusetts

Hello and welcome. Thank you for taking a minute to read about me and how I can help you. Please reach out to me if you have questions. Warmly. -Han


I provide individual psychotherapy to adults through telehealth based in Massachusetts, USA, using evidence-based approaches that are culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and personalized to meet each of my clients' individual needs.


I work with clients from various cultural, racial, religious, spiritual backgrounds. I accept and support clients of all identities. I generally have a warm attitude and a calm presence, and my style will make you feel welcome, at ease, understood, and safe to be you as you are.


My primary approach is client-centered, which means I will listen to you attentively and understand you empathically to help you unpack and sort out feelings and thoughts, find clarity, develop capacities and skills to deal with challenges and solve problems, work toward your goals, and provide support based on your needs.


My specialties include Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Self-Esteem, Personality, and Spirituality. These issues might be related to life transitions, relationships, work, school, trauma, stress, identities, LGBTQ+, gender, sexuality, addiction, grief, loss, chronic illness, or existential concerns.


When we meet, we talk about whatever you want me to help you with or whatever you would like to talk about. I explore and understand your feelings and thoughts to help you unpack, process, organize, manage, cope with, and work through them. I get to know you and your experiences to help you discern decisions, change that can be changed, and accept what cannot be changed.


Psychotherapy provides a safe space for self-exploration and meaningful dialogues in which we talk about things that matter to you in depth. I welcome your stories, feelings, thoughts, silence, questions, needs, and wishes. I accept and appreciate you as you are.


I believe long-lasting and transformative changes take place in our emotionally connected conversations. I see progress and changes as the fruits of reflection and patience in a process that requires us to get in touch with who we are, what we desire, how we survive and thrive.
