**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.

I offer home-based life coaching for teens, 20-somethings, athletes, adults, and their families in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and beyond. I work with clients at home in a positive, flexible, proactive way, emphasizing measurable, practical, and sustainable change. My approach is relaxed, non-hierarchical, and results-oriented. Although I also work with adults, I primarily help teens and 20-somethings, from kids who lack confidence and/are overly stressed or anxious to those with athletic/academic performance issues or who are really acting out, having issues with anger, substance abuse, school refusal and the like.

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.

Many people struggle to manage these inevitable difficulties, get stuck and then subsequently feel defined by their emotional pain. This can negatively impact relationships, ambitions, work and self-worth. I believe in people’s inherent right to live meaningful and joyful lives and in their ability to choose how to respond to life’s challenges.

Is anxiety or depression preventing you from living a more fulfilling life? Are you feeling overwhelmed by a major transition? Are you unable to move on from an upsetting or traumatic past experience? I help patients change patterns of behavior that are no longer working, and learn new and more effective ways of coping and engaging with life. I believe that embedded in the painful crises that usually bring individuals and couples to therapy, there are also opportunities for self understanding and mastery that can be discovered and realized in a safe healing relationship.

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.

Inevitably, life presents challenges and difficulties which can take many different forms. Sometimes people seek out therapy for very specific reasons: perhaps a major life transition has become overwhelming, or certain patterns within a relationship are starting to take a toll. Pressures in a particular setting, whether at school, at work, or at home, may be feeling too difficult to navigate alone. Other times, people come to therapy with less certain goals, maybe feeling unsure or confused about where their life is headed, maybe simply wanting something more. It’s not always easy to answer the question, “What brings you here?”

Every treatment experience is unique and decided upon by individual, couple, or family (along with myself) so they get what "they need".

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.

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Therapists
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a Wellesley adolescent therapist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent therapists in Wellesley, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.
