I’ve worked in community mental health, hospice, psychiatric hospitals, substance use and seniors’ programs.
Feeling better matters so much and yet taking those first steps to make changes and moving towards recovery and growth are often not easy. You may feel as if you’re struggling even if you’re smart, hard-working and motivated, but you can feel better. Clients come to therapy burdened with such things as anxiety/mood concerns, grief/loss issues, low self-esteem, LGBTQ+ issues, men's issues or challenges with life transitions. They want to move forward and make positive changes but are not sure where to start. Have a mature and compassionate therapeutic partner with you on this journey. Claim your right to feel better and be fulfilled!

If you have concerns about an aspect of your sex life (sexuality, sexual desire, performance anxiety, interest in kink/BDSM or open/non-monogamous/poly relationships), the search for help can feel overwhelming at times. You might even feel alone in the belief that you’re the only one who has thought, felt, or done a certain thing. You are not alone. Just like you, many people find it difficult to navigate the complexities of sex, arousal, and relationships. However, those who get the right support for their mental and sexual health are often calmer, more confident, experience more pleasure, and feel more fulfilled in life overall.

Hey! You’ve likely arrived here because you’ve been in a dark place and might be ready for a change. You’re tired of carrying around the burden of your trauma, anxiety, or the weight of your substance use or secret addiction. Or you’re concerned about a loved one’s unhealthy behaviors. Maybe you feel ashamed and alone but the fear of being judged is finally being outweighed by the possibility that things could be better. Life is really hard, but we can do hard things with support. How I can help: •We can collaborate if you have ever had substance use concerns or addictive behaviors - past or present, in recovery or ongoing.

Do you feel like you and your partner are stuck in a place where you are misunderstood, out of synch, and angry- no matter how hard and how sincerely you try to connect? Does a part of you want to make positive choices and life improvements while another part of you feels stuck in pursuing activities that make you feel ashamed, lost, or numb? Or do you feel like the ways that you have coped for most of your life are no longer working or are getting in the way of you moving forward, but you aren’t sure how to change? This can feel so frustrating and confusing- you may not even feel like you can describe what it’s like for you!

I have experience working with depression, anxiety disorders, suicidal thinking, grief counseling, substance use issues, psychosis, and more.
I believe you are the expert on you, your life, and your experience. And I also believe there is value in understanding how we, as human beings, are all so similar to one another. It helps to know you’re not alone, that your experience is not strange. It helps to know that you are simultaneously a completely unique individual, and also pretty “normal.” Working on self-compassion can bring about tremendous change. I believe we are all doing the best we can with what we’ve got, AND we can always learn and strive to do better. I believe small changes add up to big results over time.

I have extensive training in substance use (Substance Abuse Professional, SAP) and hypersexual and/or compulsive sexual and relationship behaviors (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, CSAT).
You see yourself as a high-achieving person, but there are parts of your life that feel unbalanced. Perhaps there are self-destructive behaviors that are getting out of control. Or your relationships may be causing you grief. There may also be an empty feeling or nagging fears under the surface. Even if you are accustomed to solving things yourself, this may be the time to reach out for help from a professional who specializes in working with high-functioning clients like yourself. I offer a rare combination of two decades of experience in the MIT/tech world with substantial training as a psychotherapist.

I have worked in several areas of mental health care and have truly found my purpose and passion in assisting those who struggle with trauma and/or addiction. I understand how trauma has been locked within the psyche and having an individual feel as though they are stuck within themselves. I understand that addiction was a solution to several problems at the time because it allowed relief but in reality it only masked the underlying issues. My goal for each of my clients is to have them recognize their own strengths and abilities so they may continue or begin to live meaningful lives.
