Licensed and seeing clients via telehealth in CT, MA, and FL. Reconnection, energy, feeling heard & understood, finding clarity - these are things we all strive for, and often need to rediscover, or recreate, from time to time. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by the "muck" & need another pair of eyes for a change of perspective or to help create a new experience. As the master of your own life, I work in collaboration with you to determine your needs and goals. Using a casual, cooperative style validates your experience, and empowers you to find clarity and create change for yourself, and/or your family.

If you are experiencing any of these problems, I know that I can assist you in resolving these issues.
I have learned over the years what medications are most likely to help specific symptoms in specific clients at specific times of their lives. I treat you and your symptoms. Whatever it is that affects you at the time you see me, that is what we will work on. I fully believe in the benefits of therapy. There are no "magic pills" and feeling better involves therapy in conjunction with medications. My style involves some cognitive behavioral techniques along with the philosophy of Buddha. I have combined these two entities after many years of analyzing what works for most people.

Are you experiencing depression or anxiety and rather than going easy on yourself, the voice in your head is telling you to “toughen up” or “get over it?” Does it feel as if you and your partner are speaking different languages when you talk to each other and with each attempt, the frustration increases? When you feel anger and conflict, you lose clarity. We don’t “just” feel, do, or say something. In couple’s therapy, I shift the focus from the absolutes of she/he always or he/she never does, this is what he/she thinks.
