What do you look for in a therapist? What's important? Surprisingly, age, gender, years of training and theoretical orientation are not the primary factors correlated with the effectiveness of a therapist. So how do you choose someone? Is it by their picture? The best website? The one that's taking new clients? Finding the right person can be incredibly difficult. Research suggests that the most important factors in positive therapeutic outcomes are the therapeutic alliance, working together to set collaborative goals, and the therapist's ability to be empathetic, accepting and genuine.

My goal is to co-create a trusting relationship in which you can begin to explore and change the difficult patterns that have kept you from living to your fullest potential and happiness. We will work to understand the ways in which your history may have informed and limited your life and relationships (both with self and others). We will also look at how to transform, heal, and grow in the here and now; to respond rather than react when caught up in overwhelming emotions or negative thought patterns. I utilize a non-pathologizing practical approach that includes mindfulness, self-compassion, and behavioral interventions.

I practice a mix of contemplative psychotherapy, which uses the Buddhist concepts of compassion, acceptance, and mindfulness, and cognitive psychotherapy which teaches us to identify distorted thinking and correct the unhelpful "tapes" which play in our heads. My style is active and down-to-earth. Pema Chodron sums up my orientation towards dealing with difficult times: "...When the bottom really falls out of our life, we know we're in a tender place. And we know that it's actually very rich." ...This is where we can begin, together, to work towards healing.

I practiced individual treatment for the college-aged population at Bowdoin College struggling with identity exploration, anxiety, depression and relationships. I spent the last two years working in residential treatment and day treatment settings with adolescents (and their families) who have endured complex trauma, anxiety and mood disorders, as well as developmental disabilities. I am open to working with all ages and cater treatment to each client.

Reaching out for help can be a challenge, and I’m glad you’re here. It’s important, when finding a therapist, to feel comfortable coming just as you are. If you’re struggling with a recent life transition, a challenging relationship, self-doubt, guilt, anxiety, trauma, or other emotional concerns, reach out. My approach, which is intersectional and trauma-informed, helps you explore emotions without letting them run your life, set healthier habits for your mental well being, and move toward healing so you can live more fully and authentically.

I have never met an addict or alcoholic with a drug or drinking problem. Sound strange? I've met thousands of individuals with a solution that is no longer working for them. The fact is drugs and alcohol are not the problem. They have been the solution. Addicts and Alcoholics have a higher than average intelligence and a highly sensitive nervous system. This combination is challenging especially in challenging times when it is natural to reach for a substance. If you have a drinking or drug problem I am here to help. I have maintained sobriety for over nearly 40 years. It can be done.

CURRENTLY CONDUCTING VIDEO SESSIONS ONLY. LIMITED AVAILABILITY, BUT FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ABOUT POTENTIAL OPENINGS. I recognize there are times we can get focused on regrets of the past. Or we're consumed with the chaos of anticipating the future. We can be overwhelmed by anxiety, sadness, or experiences of loss and grief...sometimes leading to isolation, being "stuck", or unhealthy relationships with substances, behaviors, or people. What drives me as a therapist is when I see a client taking action that makes their mind an ally, rather than a detractor, in their life.

You are doing a lot, but you tell yourself it is not good enough. You walk by the mirror and check your reflection. Not good enough. Others give you praise, and you don't buy it; you may not even hear it. You keep telling yourself that when you reach your goal weight, you will be happy. When you finish this project at work, you will be happy. But those promises don't come true. Time and again you set a new goal, only to be let down. You want to break out of this cycle, but you don't know how. You may even feel ambivalent about asking for help, or making any changes.

My practice is designed to work with people who feel overwhelmed or "stuck" in their current life situation. I begin with the understanding that everyone has struggles from time to time with primary relationships, work situations, financial stressors, unforeseen change of life circumstances or unresolved grief and loss. Common effects are anxiety, unexplained depression or loss of confidence. When these effects spill over into other areas of function, affecting sleep, clear thinking or enjoyment of regular activities, it is time to do some therapeutic "work".

Therapy is a place to explore how you feel, think, and live in the present, which is influenced by your past. The core beliefs and feelings we hold about ourselves are the key to how we live our lives. When these beliefs are negative they lead to unhappiness and feeling stuck. This may come from past and present experiences, dysfunctional habitual patterns or distressing event(s). We are extremely loyal to the familiar, even when it is not working. Finding someone to talk to about your most private life requires an environment of safety built on trust and confidentiality.

Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression) Therapists
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, is a chronically recurring condition involving moods that swing between the highs of mania and the lows of depression. Depression is by far the most pervasive feature of the illness, and the manic phase is usually a mix of irritability, anger, and depression, with or without euphoria. The elation may manifest as unusual energy and overconfidence, playing out in bouts of overspending or promiscuity.

While the depression of bipolar disorder can resist treatment, mood swings and recurrences can often be delayed or prevented with a mood stabilizer, alone or combined with other drugs. Therapy is an important adjunct to drugs, especially for dealing with the work and relationship problems that can accompany the disorder.
