Special Needs Resource Guide | Family Therapy & Counseling

Kate J. Stone, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist (Natick, MA)

Kate Stone is a clinical psychologist in Natick, MA.  She is also the proud mother of two little girls, the oldest of whom has significant special needs. "You would need to know that as the mom of a special needs child, I am keenly aware of the emotional roller coaster ride that caregivers of these extraordinary children can often find themselves on, especially in the first few years of the child's life.  I know all too well that many experience real grief over the loss of the dreams they once had for their child, struggle to feel connected to other parents of "normal" children, and often experience marital stress and conflict.  I also know that psychotherapy CAN help, which is why one of my specialties is in the treatment of caregivers of special needs children. " 

Linda Helmig Bram Psychologist, PhD

Lexington, MA

I provide brief and long-term therapy for children, adolescents, and adults who are coping with loss, disability, depression, anxiety, and other life stressors, as well as parent-child therapy for young children (toddlers, preschoolers). Another specialty is supporting families of children with special needs. As a parent of a child with a disability, I highly value providing the unique support that families need as they care for their child. I offer parents and siblings the opportunity to express and cope with the range of emotions and challenges that can occur when a family member has special needs.

My affiliations include: Instructor/Supervisor, Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School; Staff Psychologist, Boston Institute for Psychotherapy, Rice Center for Young Children/Families; Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) Fellow, UMass Medical School/Shriver Center. I was a mental health consultant to Early Intervention and Head Start for 10 years.
