In my 45 plus years of practice, I have found that most patients, before coming to see me may have tried to the best of their abilities to solve their problems. They may have consulted other psychotherapists or other allied professionals before coming to see me. The central task is for us to identify the nature of their psychological puzzle, and to find ways to collaborate in finding solutions to them. I have a particular interest in people who may have neurocognitive deficits. Also, I have an interest in children and adolescents whose parents are in the divorce process.

I believe that healing can occur within the context of a trusted relationship. I work with adults and families to help people better understand the things that are getting in the way of living a full, productive, and satisfying life. That could be a child’s struggle with emotional regulation, a parent’s difficulty setting limits or understanding their child’s behavior, an adult who struggles to develop and sustain intimate relationships, or a teenager who feels overwhelmed by all that is on their plate.

Choosing a therapist for yourself or a family member can understandably be a very difficult decision. Reading bios and looking at photographs of therapists can be helpful, but I believe it is essential that you feel as comfortable as possible before committing to working with any therapist. Without commitment or fee, I invite those interested in therapy to speak on the phone or meet with me in my office and talk about their concerns. My intention is to provide you with the best assurance that I am understanding of your needs and can be of help to you or your family member.

If you are looking for someone to complete a psychological evaluation, you want someone who can understand what you need and take the steps to look at all of the information and provide you with answers. I have done thousands of evaluations for children and adults over the years for a variety of referral questions. This experience helps me understand the needs for different types of evaluations. The assessments used, the language of a report, and the recommendations can mean the difference between a good report and a great report. I love helping children and adults identify their strengths and needs and choose effective treatments.

I want to commend you for your bravery in taking the first step towards reaching out for help. Counseling can give you a non-judgmental place to vent as well as a place to learn about new ways to manage overwhelming feelings. As a therapist, my main way of understanding how people work is through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It can help us challenge our negative thoughts and utilize healthy coping skills. I primarily take a humanistic approach with my clients and make sure to address psychosocial, biological, developmental, spiritual, and cultural issues as needed since every client is unique.

During this pandemic, many people are finding that the ways that they have coped with stress in the past are not helping as well as it has before. Everyone reacts to stressful situations differently and the Covid-19 pandemic is unprecedented. Having fear and anxiety is normal. However, if you are finding that either you or your family member is experiencing anxiety or fear that is becoming overwhelming, therapy can help provide coping skills and relief.

Asperger's Syndrome is a high functioning form of autism. People in Northfield with Asperger's often have difficulties with social skills. They might also have problems with motor regulation. However, unlike many with autism, their language and cognitive skills are largely intact.

People with Asperger's often have an orientation toward detail and an interest in systemizing, which can look like obsessiveness. Some may show remarkable facility in a narrowly focused and usually non-social area, such as baseball statistics or train schedules.

Those with Asperger's typically lack the ability to understand the perspectives and feelings of others. But they often benefit from sustained training in social awareness, such as learning how to read facial expressions and interaction skills. When encouraged to cope with their difficulties, many with Asperger's capitalize on their intense interests to become successful in a specific field of work.
