About CSGB

A little something about our practice...

Counseling Services of Greater Boston

Counseling Services of Greater Boston proudly offers innovative and effective individualized mental health treatment to our surrounding communities. Founded in 2012 by Dana Venable and Kristen Radlinski, CSGB opened its doors in Wakefield, MA. What started out as one small office, and a few clients, quickly expanded. In 2017 CSGB opened up its second office in Georgetown, MA.

CSGB is dedicated to building collaborative relationships with service providers in the area including pediatric offices and schools. In recent years CSGB has also become involved in local mental health awareness events such as Wakefield’s Out of the Darkness North Shore Walk, a suicide prevention fundraiser and walk-a-thon. In 2017 CSGB was awarded the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Award presented by the Wakefield Human Rights Commission for “significant and tangible contributions in promoting the civil and human rights of all people”.
