I am a clinical psychologist in practice in Amherst since 1989. I enjoy working with a wide range of people, from college aged through older adults, and with a wide range of problems and issues including: negative or vulnerable self-image, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, losses, and life transitions. I strive to provide a warm, safe, collaborative, open atmosphere in which to help people find relief from suffering and enhanced vital engagement in living. I believe that pathways to growth and healing often involve increasing awareness of underlying self-defeating patterns in the ways people experience and live their lives.

I offer a compassionate environment in which to heal and transform, beginning with embracing what IS, which allows for a more relaxed, gentle, clear and effective approach to our difficulties. Much of our emotional suffering stems from a disconnection from ourselves and our relationship with life. The work I offer facilitates a deep, authentic connection with oneself through somatic, experiential and psychodynamic work, self-inquiry, mindfulness and the support of the therapeutic relationship. Essentially I see that each person I work with has the full potential for healing already on board. We work to uncover and access that, so that full aliveness is restored.

My primary work is with children, adolescents and their parents or families, but I also work with adults experiencing a wide range of emotional or mental health struggles. I believe that mental health treatment can be normalized and useful to optimize your wellbeing. Of course, it can also be directed towards specific symptoms that are creating barriers for you. I am eager to work with clients at any stage of their work, and am skillful in identifying and organizing priorities and options for treatment.

Effective therapy offers more than relief from painful feelings, though many people do experience great relief. Therapy can also help you meet life's challenges in new and more flexible ways, grow beyond frustrating patterns that constrain your potential, and develop a more fulfilling relationship to yourself and to others. We will work together to make sense of who you are as a person, including the life experiences that have shaped how you relate to yourself and to the world.
