I am an MGH-Harvard affiliated psychologist with a psychotherapy practice of over 30 years in the South End. I work with adults, young adults, college students and couples. My goal is to ease your distress and help you live the life you want. While my background is in psychodynamic psychotherapy, I believe that each person's needs are unique. Thus, I draw on a wide range of approaches to help resolve troubling issues--self-defeating patterns, paralyzing anxieties, or feelings of dissatisfaction in relationships.

My specialties include depression, life transitions, identity questions, low self-esteem and dealing with loss or stress. I teach and supervise at MGH and the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute

I believe that the ways in which we get "stuck" often result from coping strategies created to protect ourselves but which no longer serve their purpose. I being curiosity, respect, warmth and empathy.to create a safe, private space in which you can come to understand and remove your roadblocks,
