Psychotherapy with William

William is passionate about the work he does and cares deeply for each of his clients. He spent 6 years as a fully ordained Buddhist monk and has been teaching meditation for over 15 years.

Dr. Jackson utilizes mindfulness and self-compassion practices for the majority of his clients. He guides clients towards acceptance, cultivation of inner kindness and new mindsets which create a meaningful and balanced life. This approach focuses on identifying and aligning personal values to make lasting lifestyle changes rooted in self-care and investing in one’s health, relationships, business, or creative endeavors. When working with clients with OCD, phobias or other major mental illness, he typically implements additional elements of Motivational Interviewing (MI) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and/or Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).

William sees patients in Newton, Easton, and online. Outside of his private practice, he works at Cambridge Health Alliance Primary Care and the Center for Mindfulness and Compassion and is an instructor at Harvard Medical School. He is also the founder of his company Skillful Means and holds regular meditation retreats, workshops and trainings. He looks forward to meeting you.
