**Not currently accepting new clients** It takes tremendous courage to begin the process of establishing a psychotherapy. In enhancing self-awareness we can learn how to cope and contend with many of life's challenges--and to begin to live with more ease. As a licensed Clinical Psychologist, I use evidence-based practices in an integrative way, tailoring treatment for individuals based on a shared and on-going discussion of inherent strengths, personal preferences, and psychological needs.

When I meet my clients for the first time, we may decide to seek solutions to ADHD, OCD, anxiety or depression. Parents may be looking for a resolution to a child's school under-achievement, home conflict or social disconnection. In each situation, my belief is that therapy supports skill development and fosters a sense of balance, or equanimity.

Resiliency, or grit, is an inherent quality. However, with transition comes stress, worry, and doubt. With timely and proper consultation, well-guided suggestions are often the simplest way to make quick and easy progress towards personal or professional change. Recovery from the occurrences of life is a process of study and practice. Learning and strategizing for health requires teamwork and vision. Supporting you to restore grit, develop skills, understand clinical interventions and build personalized strategies for wellness is my expertise and passion. Let's sit to explore, learn, laugh or cry, and let me coach your recovery.

Most of us do the best we can with the resources we have. Sometimes we think no one understands our worries & fears. If open to it, we want to work with a therapist when our usual ways of relating aren't helping & we feel stuck, anxious, angry or depressed. Therapy often helps provide insight into our strengths & internal resources we already have to help navigate challenging times. In sessions, I focus on working with clients to unlock this strength to steer their lives in the direction they want. I bring curiosity, warmth, respect, & empathy to my sessions.

My practice is comprised of individuals and families grappling with a range of issues from addiction to high conflict divorce and college transition difficulties. Many of my clients are navigating with the strain of divorce and are seeking to learn skills to co-parent young children despite high conflict with their ex-spouse. Others are parents devastated by the ravages of addiction on their child and, ultimately, their family. These clients are motivated, competent and capable, but are experiencing discomfort in their lives that requires empathic support and guidance.

For over thirty years, I have been helping couples develop stronger and more intimate relationships. If it feels like walls have developed that are keeping you from being able to talk to your partner or to fully enjoy your relationship, then couples therapy can help. Together, we will come to understand what is getting in the way of connection and develop strategies and solutions for changing how you and your partner communicate. Conflicts in a relationship are natural yet they can create distance if not handled skillfully. Therapy will help you to learn ways of managing conflict that create closeness.

In therapy, the client and I enter into a collaboration to find new ways to problem-solve, reduce suffering, discover patterns and build new life paths. As part of this process, I help the client: to learn about patterns of thought and behavior, to learn to be with unpleasant experiences instead of avoiding them or grasping for something else, and to practice awareness, self-compassion and curiosity, habits of mind that help bring about positive change. I have a gentle, direct, and engaging approach that encourages and supports the client.

I provide treatment that is founded on evidence based principles, meaning that I base treatment on knowledge gleaned from research and science while also allowing for flexibility to accommodate to the individual with whom I work. I have been trained in a variety of treatment modalities and work from within an acceptance based cognitive behavior therapy framework. Balancing acceptance of our experiences and channeling our strengths towards behavior change is, I find, the most useful path forward.

"We can't change the past, so we change how people are thinking, feeling and behaving today." - Albert Ellis This is the basis for how I practice therapy. Although the past matters, the way we perceive our current experiences influences how we act and feel today. In my practice I work with clients on understanding the connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and bringing awareness to help improve their everyday experience. This work can apply to treating a variety of difficulties including insomnia, anxiety, and depression as well as developing coping strategies for more general life complexities.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings.

ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Wellesley or for a Wellesley ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
