I will help you cope more effectively with anxiety, depression, loneliness, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive behaviors and feelings related to past childhood trauma. My clients describe me as very compassionate, easy to talk to and able to provide just the right kind of insight that allows them to feel better and make profound changes in their lives. I enjoy working with adults and couples of all ages and cultural backgrounds. I am sensitive to issues of gender. I have 25 years of experience both inpatient and outpatient and work short-term or longer-term, depending on a client's preference.
I work together with you to figure out what prevents you from feeling good about yourself, your work and your relationships and how to feel better. I have presented and published articles on eating disorders and trauma.
I am a part-time Clinical Instructor in Psychology (Psychiatry) at the Cambridge Health Alliance (Harvard Medical School). I am a Training and Supervising Analyst, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, where I enjoy teaching and doing supervision.
