Are you seeking a socially just, nonjudgmental space, welcoming of, and open to all genders, cultures and backgrounds? Would you like to be met at where you are currently at in your life, and where every part of you is accepted and valued? Therapy can be a unknown/scary commitment to talk to a stranger about your personal story. I strive to be authentic, someone with whom clients feel comfortable enough with to be open and self-revealing, and feel understood. My desire is to provide a space where you feel you can explore issues that matter to you, strengthen your resilience, and gain perspective.

Struggling with life transitions, creative ruts, and relationships are difficult in any situation but especially so if you do not follow the heteronormative path. It can be difficult to open up to someone when you are not certain that they understand Queer and Alternative relationship structures. I use a straight forward and individualized approach with each client to build a therapeutic relationship based on specific goals. I focus my work around issues regarding LGBTQ+, sexuality, non-binary and transgender, complex relationships, power dynamics, sexual health, BDSM/Kink, and other alternative dynamics.

Do you love your partner, but want to feel "in love" again? Are you anxious about dating, or have you had a recent break up? Improve communication and reduce conflict by recognizing unconscious patterns that interfere with true intimacy. Learn the value of presence and authenticity in your relationship. For those seeking a new relationship, practice discernment skills to recognize "the one," and create new romance pathways rather than relying on the map that has previously failed you. I teach skills to couples and individuals who understand that a romantic relationship is the centerpiece of success.

Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. Often, we become stuck in the maladaptive cycles of generational and personal trauma. Just as life is filled with constant change so too are we capable of training our minds to better adapt to our current needs. We are capable of much more than we realize and we can choose to better ourselves and in turn our relationships and our lives. I create a safe space to explore and learn. I will guide you toward a greater sense of self-understanding and empowerment as well as aiding you in identifying and achieving your goals through a collaborative therapeutic process.

Developing a deeper understanding about why we do the things we do is an important part of becoming the person we desire to be. Therapy can be an important tool for self discovery and recognizing our problematic patterns. I believe that therapy should meet the individual where they are and the unique set of circumstances that they exist in. I utilize a client-centered therapeutic model, have a specialization in trauma work, expertise in addiction treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, existential therapy, object relations, as well as navigating psychiatry systems (having run a clinic myself).

A crisis or stressor can look and feel different to each person. The first step is to assess the situation, which we will do together. The next step is to de-escalate from the any acute stress or crisis. I like to use play, creative expression, coping skills, mindfulness/meditation, and distress tolerance techniques with people in crisis. Once we learn how to best manage the immediate discomfort and stress, we can move to resolving the root of the issue. This may lie in larger education, family, medical, performance, and environmental causes.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Boston using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Boston are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Boston
