I'm certified in Emotionally Focused Couples therapy and other attachment approaches: Internal Family Systems for individual and couples and AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy).
The clients I work with most often are looking to make their life better and more meaningful. Often they are struggling with issues that find their root in painful childhood experiences and are looking for a therapeutic relationship to help them access the resilience that is inside but elusive. I work to make therapy a safe space, and in an interactive and experiential way to create new experiences and insights that lead to lasting change in the way the client perceive themselves and their world, tapping into the resilience that we all have.

I offer the following specialized interventions: DBT-informed treatment, Y-CBT, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Family Systems, and a Liberation Health approach to therapy.
**Current openings for online: Adult Y-CBT Group Winter, 2022; Grief Workshop Nov, 2021; Healing and Processing Grief Group Jan, 2022. Various, overlapping aspects of our identity have a significant impact on our experience of the world and how we are treated. I find that relationships and life experiences tend to have a major influence on our decisions and emotional well-being. Sometimes our own anxiety, depression, history, and patterns also challenges trust and connection with others. I strive to help clients develop insight, find relief from suffering, develop ways to adapt, and enhance their self-advocacy.

Because of this, I employ a variety of strategies including Internalized Family Systems (IFS) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help process feelings, develop strategies and ultimately thrive.
When people feel better, they do better.  This is true for children, adults and couples.  And in families, when one person is doing better, everyone is better. You may be feeling overwhelmed or dissatisfied at home, school, work, or in an important relationship. You may be feeling like your life is not going how you had hoped or expected. Your child or teen may be struggling at home or school.  If you're a parent supporting a kid or partner who is struggling, you probably feel lonely, frustrated and discouraged. These are some of the difficulties that bring people to my office.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Needham 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.
