Do you often feel discontent with how life is turning out? Are you troubled by recurrent feelings of sadness, anxiety, guilt or anger? Are you frustrated by repetitive,nonproductive disagreements with your partner? Talking is still the best medicine. It can help you learn about why you get stuck and discover more satisfying, constructive alternatives. People make mistakes and act unskillfully--the question is whether you can cope effectively when this happens, building on personal resourcefulness. I am committed to understanding your unique experience so you can become become freer, happier and more loving.

Having done therapy for over twenty five years, I have been priviledged to help individuals change their lives for the better. I provide psychodynamic therapy, couples therapy, twelve-step informed treatment, consultation, and therapist supervision. I offer psychoanalysis for those seeking an intensive, self-exploration experience.

I am a psychologist, certified psychoanalyst, and seasoned marriage therapist. I serve on the faculty of the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis and present widely on effective therapuetic technique, relationship development, anger management, and promoting resiliency and happiness. My research interests relate to successful marriage counseling methods and treating recurrent depression.
