Life is too short to be burdened by the negative thoughts and feelings that come with emotional pain. Depression, anxiety, troubled relationships, substance abuse, a negative self- or body-image all greatly limit people's happiness. In a comfortable, confidential setting, we will study together the nature of your suffering and the changes needed for you to enjoy a fuller, more satisfying life. By combining psychodynamic therapy to deepen your self-awareness with mindfulness and cognitive techniques to overcome painful thoughts and feelings, our work will significantly increase your well-being.

As a senior clinician, I have a great deal of experience treating depression and anxiety. In addition, the specialized training in substance abuse treatment I received at McLean Hospital over several years has enabled me to help people overcome their addictions and enjoy the profound changes that come from recovery.

I also specialize in helping people explore the impact of their physical appearance on their lives. While dismissed "as skin deep" and very difficult to discuss, understanding the role of one's looks, and the forces at work surrounding them, can be key to self-awareness and self-esteem.
