***I am no longer accepting new clients at this time.*** Psychotherapy can help you make sense of complicated feelings, gain insight into relational patterns, and begin to move forward in areas of your life where you feel stuck. My focus is to help you untangle struggles, set meaningful goals, revise problematic narratives about yourself, and re-orient you toward your values. My integrative approach is informed by psychodynamic, feminist, multicultural, relational, and behaviorist theories. Above all, I value the therapeutic relationship and your personal growth.

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist trained at Harvard Medical School. Occasionally, we notice patterns of thinking, behaving, and experiencing others & ourselves, which can feel very familiar and frustrating. Or we can be hit by sudden life circumstances like loss, transition, identity shifts, or trauma that leave us feeling overwhelmed & scared, where existing strengths and coping skills are outstripped. Through a dynamic and collaborative process, I help patients understand & transform their old ways of being to feel more connected, renewed, and, ultimately, to better flourish in their relationships, work, and within themselves.

I am a psychology associate under the supervision of Dr. Maury Joseph (license number: PSY1001241). In therapy, I seek to provide a warm and non-judgmental space for you to process your concerns. Life is hard, and we often find we find ourselves caught up in challenges in our relationships, in our personal lives, and at work. We want more-- more freedom, more purpose, or more peace. Whether your life feels overwhelming or underwhelming, I believe that the care, courage, and curiosity that you find in therapy can go a long way in helping you find new possibilities and solutions that work for you.

Life's challenges can sometimes push our coping skills to the brink, and what used to work for us no longer does. Relief from psychological pain comes when we face feelings that we are avoiding and develop new ways of looking at our lives. I have worked successfully with adults experiencing difficult situations at work, in relationships, and in life transitions. Through our work together, I will help you challenge unhelpful beliefs and alleviate distressing emotions so that you can free yourself from suffering, regain hope, make better choices, and live a more authentic, satisfying life.

My experience and training (EFT: Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy, Imago, PACT) taught me that most emotional challenges are tied to how we function in our personal relationships.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is central to effective therapy. Using an approach built on empathy, openness, and warmth, I provide an environment where you can say anything that comes to mind and be yourself more fully and authentically. When we have our experiences heard and validated by another, it enhances our understanding and acceptance of ourselves. Working from a psychodynamic framework, I believe it is important to learn about our early life experiences and how that impacts our current emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Washington Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
