Mark S. Kryter, MSSW, LCSW

For over three decades, Mark has partnered with individuals, couples, and families on their journey toward happiness, self-understanding, and personal mastery as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. While Mark draws from a deep and diverse well of experience and training, he approaches therapy primarily through an approach called Psychosocial Therapy which combines a clear vision of his clients’ own experience of themselves and the world around them. By exploring the client’s unique past, current struggles, and external stressors, the stage is set for positive change. Mark is also adept at applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems Therapy to help you achieve your goals. While Mark assists people of all ages, as a seasoned therapist, he is especially able to address the needs and concerns of mature clients.

In the past, Mark has worked with children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly and in residential treatment settings, inpatient hospitals, outpatient clinics, drug rehab, nursing homes and hospice settings. Outside of his career as a therapist, Mark enjoys hiking, swimming, classic cars and gardening. He is also committed to lifelong learning and, on occasion, pushing his comfort level by taking on new challenges to further expand his own life experience.

Mark prides himself on being an excellent listener and has noticed that what is not said is every bit as important as what is said. He is continually honored to provide a space where clients are seen, understood, and not judged. Mark is not afraid to be himself in session and brings the added value of a long and full life with him in therapy. One of his greatest joys is witnessing a client’s “aha” moments where things open up and healing begins. Your own “aha” moments are just around the corner and Mark looks forward to sharing them with you!
