Everyone has the right and the ability to recover from addiction. As a substance use disorder specialist I understand a wide range of addictions, and all phases of recovery - from helping individuals decide if they have a problem with addiction, to strengthening recovery and preventing relapse. Most people who struggle with addictions have other difficulties that, unless addressed, can create stumbling blocks to enjoying a happy, clean and sober life. It is my goal to help clients to identify and manage the problems that keep them from achieving what they want in life.

Has it started to feel more like you are surviving life instead of living life? When stressors come from so many different directions, your life can start to resemble something you want to retreat from, not something you relish. It’s not surprising that you don’t feel like, or maybe even like yourself, anymore. No wonder you spend more time in your own head – your brain is probably desperately trying to find a way out of all this, a solution. Let me help.

Are you trying to make changes in yourself, your work, your education, or your relationships? Maybe the problem is clear but the solution feels out of reach. Or maybe it’s not quite clear what is out of kilter, but you or they sense change is necessary. Even if there is no owner's manual for change, my life experience as a parent/grandparent, and my varied professional background in mental health, public policy, and academia have convinced me that change can be an enriching part of life. Psychotherapy is a place to explore change openly.

In my experience as a therapist, I have seen many people "right" themselves during critical and painful times of their lives. People often come to therapy in distress and confusion, unsure how to manage their current life circumstances or overwhelmed by symptoms related to emotional pain. Sometimes there are signs quietly trying to get your attention and other times it comes as a crisis. Sometimes it is others in your life that are calling for you to change. We will work together to develop clarity, identify solutions and improve your overall life satisfaction.

I specialize in mood disorders and anxiety. I've published five books--Undoing Depression is probably the most familiar---on depression, stress, and happiness, My latest, "Rewire," was released August 2014. My approach is basically psychodynamic, with a lot of CBT and mindfulness. I believe that anyone can change--the brain can literally be rewired--but it takes a lot of patience and practice. Most of the people I meet have been battered around by life, and it's left scars--difficulty hoping, difficulty trusting. It's my job to mobilize that hope and trust.

Seeking out therapy is a brave step to creating a life that you want. My style is warm, kind, and direct. I believe in meeting you where you are. Every person brings in different life experiences and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. For me, the purpose of therapy is to create a relationship where you can feel safe and supported while developing new skills. I am offering virtual sessions across both Connecticut and Massachusetts. I am offering in person sessions in my office in Lakeville, Connecticut.

What type of North Canaan mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in North Canaan?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
