Hi! I am a medication and/or therapy provider. I use a very client-centered approach in therapy and utilize CBT and narrative therapy frequently. I have a strong belief that the mind and body are highly integrated and that physical and mental treatment are inseparable. For this reason, clients have the option of participating in a new model of treatment. This would include exercising during therapy sessions - brisk or slow walking on treadmills or Stairmaster at the client's comfort level. Of course, regular counseling therapy and/or medication prescriptions are provided for those not interested in combining exercise.

Welcome and thank you for visiting my profile. I am a Board Certified Psych Nurse Practitioner with 12 years in the field. I work with teens, adults and geriatric patients. My love for psychiatry started after a patient made a great impact on me during my nursing clinical rotation. This patient experience resulted in my first academic award for excellence in mental health in 2015. My love for psychiatry grew stronger over the years working as a psych registered nurse. Seeing how patients with mental illness are struggling to find a provider, I have decided to return to school to become a Nurse Practitioner.

Psychotherapy is a safe place where we can explore how the past continues to effect the present. It is an encounter with another person which can be painful at times but also lively and genial. As a psychiatrist trained at Tufts Medical Center and an analytic candidate at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute I employ an approach that integrates psychoanalytic, cognitive, and mindfulness-based techniques with psychopharmacologic management. The human experience is complex and I engage my patients in a flexible manner that respects the gravity of our work.

Although successful, you're not as happy as you deserve to be, and you are likely pretty good at hiding your internal distress. You may be dissatisfied with the situation at work, or with the quality of your relationships, or both. This gnaws at you, you want to fix it, and you may be skeptical about the “therapy industrial complex.” Before launching into the fix, you need to clearly understand the problem, and how different approaches may or may not address it. You like the idea of starting with an evaluation by a seasoned expert who gets people like you, and who will tell it like it is with compassion and understanding.

We all crave success in our personal and professional lives. The relationship we have with our past or current situation can either debilitate OR completely empower us in taking action forward toward living the ways we truly desire. Each life journey is packed with experiences we often think define us, but it's really how we think now about our past, present, and future that defines us. The best news is that every individual is fully capable and worthy of creating their dream life. Life Coaching offers practical concepts and action-based tools for individuals to solve their problems, define their future, and take action.

I help clients resolve psychological or psychiatric problems that keep them from fully experiencing their lives. I also work with people to help them achieve their life goals. Because no two people are the same, treatment for every person should be individually tailored. I do therapy, and use medications when they are needed. Some of the therapies I use are hypnotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, couples and family therapy. I help with anxiety, mood problems, habit problems, co-morbid medical and psychiatric problems, relationship and family problems.
