You pride yourself in always having it together, but now you feel like everything is falling apart. You were looking forward to this new experience and worked hard to get here, but now that you’re here, you feel out of place. Whether its a new job, a new baby, a recent move, or college, you've been feeling like you just can’t get your bearings. Am I good enough? Is all this stress worth it? Will I ever feel fully competent? You feel guilty and wonder if you are ungrateful because of these questions. You want your confidence back but don’t know where to begin.

Feeling nervous or stressed is natural. When these feelings overwhelm us, we need someone to listen, to validate our concerns, and to help us get to the root of our problems with tools that will inspire hope, and help us regain control of our lives. I use Mindfulness Practices to help people sit with, and tolerate what comes up. I use Self-Compassion Practices to help soothe what ails you, and I often use CBT to organize our plan going forward. This gives you tools that you can use immediately, and strikes a fine balance between listening and responding.

If interested in group therapy for processing racial trauma, see below for group information (9/2/2020). "When I discover who I am, I'll be free."-Ralph Ellison. I believe that many of the challenges that inhibit us from achieving our goals are related to the difficulty in knowing ourselves and how we can maximize our strengths in order to meet the challenges we face. I believe that no matter what your presenting issue, awareness of our own goals, values, and strengths are critical. It is my goal to help clients cultivate self-awareness in order to achieve their therapeutic goals.

We live in a traumatic world and the effects of this trauma are a heavy burden on our backs. We carry many things with us in our lives. This stuff clutters our closets, makes it hard to walk around our basements and gets in the way of our progress. I help my clients use images, objects, and memories to call forth their stories. Then I support them in learning the skills to retell these stories in a healthier way and to let go of the burden of trauma.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS* I’ve found that a key to feeling vital, ironically, is learning to feel bad: learning how to feel and accept painful feelings with less judgement, fear, and struggle.  Sometimes we grip tightly to or push away a difficult emotion, person, or an idea of what should be.  When we grip tightly or push away, we feel controlled, demoralized, and rigid.  When we stop struggling with painful memories, emotions, thoughts, and people we cannot control, we find an unexpected kind of happiness; the kind of happiness that comes of feeling all the complexities of being human with compassion, freedom, and grace.

How do we change? What makes change so difficult? These are vital questions when seeking help with overwhelming life difficulties. As a Harvard trained psychologist and psychoanalyst who both treats people seeking change and teaches other clinicians about such treatment, my focus is on helping my patients improve and deepen personal relationships, become more satisfied and productive in work, change lifelong ways of coping that just aren't working. Change occurs through exploration in a safe and private environment where you can feel understood and where you can creatively discover new ways of addressing old problems.

My goal is to help motivated adults to identify what they want out of life, figure out what's getting in their way, and overcome those obstacles to achieve the lives they want. I place high value on autonomy and seek to help clients increase their own sense of agency- the feeling that they have the power to make their own decisions and the resources to act on those decisions. My background and perspective can be particularly useful when working with clients who are highly intelligent, who are oriented towards engineering, science, technology, or who think of themselves as introverted, shy, or socially awkward.
