Life can be intensely challenging, with great suffering and pain. It can be overwhelming to figure out how to jumpstart the healing process. Taking the step to pursue psychotherapy takes courage. Over time, therapy can facilitate powerful insight and personal growth. My goal is to gently create an environment that is safe, supportive, and helps you develop reflective self-awareness and positive coping skills, so that you may live more fully and with resilience, and move towards healing. Currently I am also a part-time lecturer at Harvard, and senior faculty at the CHA Center for Mindfulness and Compassion.
I am Harvard-trained, and specialize in talk therapy. In some situations, I also prescribe medication when indicated. My style draws from mindfulness, psychodynamic, self-compassion, CBT, and mind-body approaches. As a former educator, I am down-to-earth, warm, and offer practical skills and coaching to help you thrive.
