I specialize in working with clients who have ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD. I collaborate in developing goals of treatment and help clients identify, understand and address both current struggles and the childhood roots of these struggles. This approach is especially helpful to clients who had difficult, invalidating or traumatic childhoods. I help clients: to be compassionate with themselves, to honor yet process difficult emotions, and to change behaviors. I work best with clients: who want self understanding, who appreciate a thoughtful, safe space, and, who are willing to do the work to make these changes happen.

I am a partner at Needham Psychotherapy Associates where I work primarily with couples. I work with couples who are stuck and feel that their relationship is slipping away. Loneliness is the most common - and most heartbreaking - complaint that I hear, and I frequently hear it from both partners even when there is a lot of anger. I work on repairing connection - not on who is right or wrong. I am trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) which is a focused, validated, time limited treatment strategy which helps couples heal the wounds that have hurt their connection

I work with children, adolescents, and adults who have often had unsuccessful prior treatment experiences. They feel that my knowledge and holistic approach to treatment will provide them with a healthier pathway forward in their life. Although I have a depth of experience to share with my patients I value learning from them on a daily basis. To facilitate change I employ a range of focused DBT and CBT strategies that I also teach to younger clinicians who train with my practice. I have maintained a professional home for 30 years at Harvard Medical School where I serve as a Part-Time Lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry.

I am passionate about working with adults (18+) that are struggling with painful life experiences. I provide a safe, accepting environment, using evidence-based modalities for change, and support my clients in the process of healing and becoming the best versions of themselves. My clients are resilient- however, having to be "strong" and in survival mode all the time is exhausting, and it's okay to let your guard down with me. I aim to support my clients in not only surviving, but thriving. My clients ultimately achieve a healthier relationship with themselves, others, and the world around them.

There are times when life feels particularly hard. If you’re experiencing overwhelming stress, worry, sadness, trouble coping or simply a lack of motivation, please know that you don’t have to go it alone. Perhaps you’re in the middle of a break-up or facing a loss that seems unmanageable. Or maybe you’re struggling in your personal relationships, frustrated or feeling exhausted by putting others’ needs before your own. Possibly you’re not sure what is wrong, but you feel unable to find the happiness you crave.

Sometimes life throws us something that turns our whole world upside down. Other times life is “fine,” but we just don’t feel fine. We may be overwhelmed with anxiety, stress, depression, or just feeling stuck. If you are wondering whether now is the right time for therapy, the answer is probably “yes.” You start to feel different when you do things differently. Whether you are a teen, young adult, or adult, I can offer you a non-judgmental, creative space with fresh ideas and hope for the future.

Life challenges us in many ways, and sometimes we find ourselves struggling. We may lack energy, motivation, or direction, and find ourselves not enjoying life very much at all. Stressful events, over-thinking, and an unbalanced lifestyle can knock us out of our “window of tolerance” and decrease our resilience. If we don't take the time to slow down and attend to our bodies as well as our thoughts and emotions, life can become a rush of activity without meaning and can lead to anxiety, depression, and disconnection. Therapy is a powerful way to take that time for yourself.

In a grief-averse society that says to "get over" or "move on" from the death of a loved one, in a medical system that pathologizes bereavement as a disorder as early as one year after someone's death, in social circles that force toxic positivity, platitudes, and unsolicited advice on grieving folks, I long to offer a different presence. I come alongside traumatically bereaved children and families to offer meaningful and non-judgmental support in the wake of an unexpected or violent death, or after a prolonged illness. Death and trauma generate complex grief responses that deserve to be heard, honored, explored, and integrated.
