I am an experienced psychotherapist and certified group psychotherapist with thirteen years experience working with individuals, couples and groups. I have an early attachment lens, understanding people in terms of their relationships, life experiences and current challenges. I hold a Ph.D. in biochemistry, which informs my work in psychotherapy by applying current research in neuropsychology to my treatment approach. I am a board member of the Northeastern Society of Group Psychotherapy and the Rice Memorial Fund and a member of the American Society for Group Psychotherapy.

My practice focus is working with late adolescents and adults seeking help with their relationships and challenging life transitions and situations. A particular interest is working with scientists. My training includes specialization in childhood attachment and developmental issues as well as addictive and detrimental coping styles.

I have provided workshops and trainings in the area of childhood sexual abuse at the Healing Ministry of the Archdiocese of Boston and have been a return speaker at the Arlington and Burlington Chambers of Commerce Women's Networking Groups. I also provide workshops and retreats for women.
