As a former cult member, I help people and their families who have been "unduly influenced." I am committed to helping people reclaim their personal power. I wrote Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults and Beliefs (2013), a 30th-anniversary edition of Combating Cult Mind Control (2018) and The Cult of Trump (2019). I help people from all over the world who have found that mental health professionals unless they are specialized in treating cult members, are at best a waste of time and resources, and worse, do further harm. A large part of my practice is short term work with former members.

I see therapy as a place to practice courage and honesty, with the goal of creating more joy, humor, flexibility, and play in one's life, relationships, and work. I often see individuals dealing with complex issues such as depression, grief/loss, anxiety, recovery from trauma/abuse or neglect, postpartum or parenting issues, child emotional or behavioral concerns, relationship conflicts, or identity/life transitions. My approach is collaborative, empathic, and interactive, creating an environment in which to help you better understand, relate to, and address the challenges you are experiencing.

The way psychotherapy is practiced has a lot to do with the mind set and life experience of the psychologist. I have been in private practice since 1980, and beyond the traditional training for psychologists, I also trained extensively in an approach known as Psychology of Mind, or Health Realization. This is a cognitive approach that is very down-to-earth but rooted in principles akin to those behind meditation, yoga and similar traditions that were developed to enhance optimal human functioning.

Hi, and welcome. For many people, the decision to get help can be a difficult one. I see your visit to my profile as a sign of strength and a refusal to give up. Loneliness, the inability to enjoy life, excessive worry or fear, anxiety in social situations, unhappiness or problems in personal, professional or marital relationships, not knowing what to do personally or professionally, even substance "abuse" and PTSD are issues that are interpersonal, not biological. They can be overcome within a genuinely understanding, compassionate, active, and patient therapeutic relationship.

I understand that symptoms and problems have meaning and I help patients to come to understand this meaning. Therapy loosens the forces that bind people to ways of living that have become unsatisfying. I seek to help patients understand themselves in a deep and complex way so that life becomes more free, more enriched, and more meaningful.

The children and teens I see often have difficulty with behavior, impulsivity and self-regulation, with anxiety, depression and self-esteem, or attention and focus at home or in relation to school. Many have a history of struggles making and keeping friends and some get so discouraged at school that they either give up and withdraw or resort to behavior that gets them into trouble.

I find that successful psychotherapy usually begins by helping you to clearly envision what you want for yourself. In particular, how do you want your life to be? I help you think through your hopes for your self and identify factors that may interfere with your aspirations for you. From there, we will think through strategies and work through barriers as you seek to achieve your vision of how you want to feel, to relate to others, to work, to study or learn. Each person is entirely unique, and thus, my approach to help you live the life you want to live will be adapted to your unique self.

All human beings have within themselves the capacity for living happy, meaningful lives. We are meant to thrive, however it is quite common for distressing life experiences to interfere with our natural way of being. Sometimes obstacles are known to us, but have been resistant to change. Others remain hidden, but what we do notice clearly are psychological and emotional symptoms of distress (depression, fear and anxiety, emotional reactivity, irritability, addictions, etc.). These symptoms can significantly impact our quality of life, and almost always cause problems in relationships.

I respect why people seek therapy. Work begins with the truth of their stated problem. People describe undesirable patterns in career/work and relationships. I help people connect current problems to deficits or traumas in early life, or situations that interrupted their own early development. I help people discover, talk about, and grieve these early situations. The therapeutic action is the exploration of the link between early situations and the current problem. I help people create new experiences of themselves in work, everyday stressful situations, and in love relationships. The outcome: freedom to create a satisfying life and future.

Welcome! Meaningful change and lasting healing happen through the co-creation of safe therapeutic spaces. Together, we can develop your capacity not only to feel better, but to be healthier. Understanding yourself is a powerful source of transformation and development. However, insight alone is not always enough to create psychological healing. I work with people to generate deep insight but also to create a new way of being and feeling in the world. For these purposes, I often incorporate both experiential and mind/brain/body therapies.

I became a therapist later than most and I bring a wealth of life experience to my work. A lesson I have learned is that life throws us curve balls. We often find ourselves in unexpected places, which can be confusing, humbling, heart breaking and sometimes shaming. Life has shaped me as a therapist and has also directed my areas of interest. These include; - trauma, couples, family work, infertility, IVF, divorcing families, grief and loss, social justice and personal empowerment.

Dissociative Disorders Therapists
Dissociative Disorders are conditions that involve the breakdown of memory. Dissociation is a mental process that produces a lack of connection in our thoughts, a separation of emotions, physical sensations, memories, actions or even our sense of identity. Most of us experience mild dissociation in our everyday lives. We call it daydreaming, getting lost in a movie or a book, or driving home on autopilot. These examples of dissociation are normal, and are a mild form of amnesia. Dissociation can become a disorder when it begins during a person's developmental years and becomes habitual and ingrained. If you're looking for help with dissociative disorders in Brookline or for a Brookline dissociative disorder therapist these professionals provide therapy for dissociative disorders. They include dissociative disorder therapists, dissociative disorder psychologists, dissociative disorder psychotherapists and dissociative disorder counselors. They can help with amnesia, memory problems, and loss of recall resulting from emotional trauma.
