As a therapist, it is my task to join with you to tackle your issues of concern. Sometimes these are situational. Other times you have become aware of a pattern or trend that continually gets in your way. The therapist must create an empathetic environment in which you can truly share and be heard. Then, the therapist can offer the insights and suggestions, so you may begin to unravel and solve the problems. It is a process. My work in Boston, Princeton, and Sarasota has focused on creating this environment and giving you the space to find your way.

Do you feel like you've arrived at a place not of your choosing? Do you stand on the threshold of something new and unknown? With so many external forces competing for your attention, it's hard to even take stock of these questions. And that's on top of the more timeless and pressing life transitions associated with adulthood, college, careers, long term relationships, aging, or parenting, to name a few. Failing to address these questions leaves you carrying around little bags of anxiety, depression, resentment, or a general disenchantment with the world promised to you. In this state, it's hard to live deliberately.

It’s hard to imagine a more accurate stereotype than the image of an unhappy adult reclined on a chaise lounge while venting about an unhappy childhood. Though the stereotype might be overly simplified, the reality is your childhood and adolescent years go on to color the rest of your life, shaping your personality, relationships, goals, and opinions. The importance of these years is what drew me to the field. From my very first placement as a graduate school intern, I was especially drawn towards the prospect of helping children and young adults navigate their way through a time that can feel like a rollercoaster.
