I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years of experience in helping people with a variety of presenting problems. Are anxiety, depression, health or relationship issues making you feel "stuck" and keeping you from living the life you want right now? I work collaboratively with my clients building on already existing strengths to help reach the goals of behavioral and emotional growth. My approach is integrative, and I find using cognitive/behavioral and family/systems thinking to be most effective in helping my clients.

I also draw from a range of experience with family systems.
Transitional times in your life sometimes creates angst and stress, which can show up in our bodies in a physical way, as well as, in our relationships. This is an ideal time to engage in therapy. These transitions can occur anywhere in your life; relationship conflict, a break-up, parenting concerns, navigating a new job or a geographical move, graduate school, divorce, family concerns, and health crises, as well as others, which all might result in anxiety or depression.

Choosing a therapist for yourself or a family member can understandably be a very difficult decision. Reading bios and looking at photographs of therapists can be helpful, but I believe it is essential that you feel as comfortable as possible before committing to working with any therapist. Without commitment or fee, I invite those interested in therapy to speak on the phone or meet with me in my office and talk about their concerns. My intention is to provide you with the best assurance that I am understanding of your needs and can be of help to you or your family member.

Finding the right therapist is essential in one's journey toward overcoming obstacles. I believe counseling is a collaborative and creative process where we join together to establish the change you desire. I utilize a direct, honest, and genuine communication style in our relationship. My approach combines psychotherapy and the use of experiential therapy as a means of building communication, trust, and decision-making through individual and family treatment. My treatment also involves the partnership of animal assisted therapy with my Labrador Retriever.

In my 45 plus years of practice, I have found that most patients, before coming to see me may have tried to the best of their abilities to solve their problems. They may have consulted other psychotherapists or other allied professionals before coming to see me. The central task is for us to identify the nature of their psychological puzzle, and to find ways to collaborate in finding solutions to them. I have a particular interest in people who may have neurocognitive deficits. Also, I have an interest in children and adolescents whose parents are in the divorce process.

They also have differing neurological availability to the resources and strategies that their brains can employ. At Collaborators, Inc., we work with people where they are in time, place, development, neurology, and life space. Hearing people process their experiences in this way, and joining with them in making sense of challenges, relationship issues, conflicts, and family history issues makes for a context where people can find new ways to explore their world with confidence.

People are not defined by the struggles that they face, but are a complex amalgamation of their environment, biology, and life experiences. My role as therapist extends beyond the goal of simply fixing problems. Through the development of a deep therapeutic relationship lies the opportunity to create meaning out of life's difficulties, heal from painful experiences, and develop greater insight into one's life. Psychotherapy can provide necessary support as lives shift through different phases of development, interpersonal relationships change, and as the environments in which we live, learn, and work evolve.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Northfield view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
