Richard A. Grossman, Ph.D.
Psychologist
Brookline, Massachusetts

For the past 28 years, Dr. Richard Grossman has maintained a psychotherapy practice focusing on relationship problems, depression, and general life dissatisfaction. Much of his work has centered on the treatment of adult children of narcissistic parents, people with narcissistic spouses or partners, and those left "voiceless" as a result of early loss or trauma. Prior to entering private practice, he taught and supervised in the internship and postdoctoral psychotherapy programs at Massachusetts General Hospital/ Harvard Medical School in Boston where he was on staff.

Dr. Grossman started the Voicelessness and Emotional Survival web site (see links to the right) in 1999.  The essays on this site--on  narcissism, adult children of narcissistic parents, relationship issues, depression, parenting, and therapy--have drawn hundreds of thousands of readers and have been "lifesaving" to many.  In addition, the Voicelessness and Emotional Survival Message Board has over 100,000 posts from people sharing (often for the first time) their  personal experience with these and other topics.  The Message Board has become a valuable resource for those wishing to learn more about narcissistic parents, spouses, partners, boyfriends/ girlfriends, siblings, bosses, and co-workers.


Featured twice in New England Psychologist, Dr. Grossman's work has also appeared in Psychology Today, Boston Magazine, the Boston Globe, Cosmopolitan (UK), and other magazines, books, and web sites.  Also a playwright, his 10-minute comedy, Reality Book Group, was top-billed in the Boston Globe (selected from 53 plays by New England's premier playwrights), and  performed at the 2012 Boston Theater Marathon. Reality Book Group & 3 other short plays is the most downloaded book of American plays on the popular e-book web site, Smashwords.  The Last Resort is his latest 10-minute comedy.
