Announcement icon I offer both online and in-person office visits focusing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in a Positive Psychology framework.
I'm a clinical and family psychologist, with appointments to Harvard's and Tufts University's Schools Of Medicine and the author of "Ten Lessons In Power Psychology." I have over 40 years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families. I'm experienced in Psychological Assessments and various forms of therapy, including EMDR, Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Behavioral Transformatics within a Positive Psychology framework, which emphasizes building upon personal strengths, the development of new life skills and moving forward rather than focusing on the past and looking backwards.
CBT is a direct, problem-solving, solution-focused treatment, not at all like "counseling," "talk therapy" or what you see portrayed by therapists on TV. CBT is best suited to helping individuals change and move forward by learning and practicing new skills to overcome obstacles and exceed expectations while also minimizing the repetition of past mistakes.
I bring a life-span developmental approach to understanding how our past cognitive, emotional and behavioral experiences can impact our present functioning. This permits me to work with individuals in all developmental stages to identify useful transformative skills to those seeking therapy or coaching to make a better life for themselves or those they love.
