I work with a wide variety of people at various stages of change. I’ve been part of the Harvard Medical School system for the past 6 years, and currently teach and supervise HMS trainees. I am trained primarily in psychodynamic therapy, though principles/interventions from other paradigms inform my work as well. Ultimately, the nature of therapy depends on the patient, what they are up against, and their goals. For this reason, the course of therapy is difficult to describe. But generally speaking, I would be a good fit for someone looking to understand and change established patterns, and to find relief from associated symptoms.

***At this time I am not able to accept new clients. I will update this page when openings become available.*** During this time of global anxiety I am available for teletherapy. Thankfully, most major insurance companies cover telemedicine, which is critical for maintaining connection and care as we face a period of isolation. In my work am dedicated to supporting clients who are facing challenges related to anxiety, depression, and mood regulation. I see therapy as an opportunity to identify goals and problem-solve the roadblocks that have stalled obtaining them.

Something is wrong and you've been trying to fix it. Relationships are rocky. How can you get your needs met when it seems like everyone else's needs come first? You're misunderstood and confused about your role. What are the rules here? What is "normal"? It has been a long time since you felt a sense of order and stability in your relationship. You crave a sense of belonging. And peace.
