Over thirty plus years of experience as a therapist my focus has been on helping people achieve a greater sense of satisfaction in relationships, develop a better self-image, and gain relief from depression and anxiety. In couples therapy my work involves developing an understanding of the strengths and vulnerabilities, hopes and fears which each member of the couple brings to the relationship from their own past experiences, as well as deepening an understanding of what has been happening in the relationship, with the goal of making productive changes in the ways the couple communicates, collaborates, and resolves conflicts.

First and foremost I strive to foster a safe and relaxed environment. My role within such a setting includes a commitment to provide close and active listening and to establish a collaborative dialogue that deepens self understanding and acceptance.

Trained in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy, I am also pragmatic and eclectic in my approach and choose from a range of approaches best tailored to a person's specific needs. In addition to my psychotherapy practice I have taught at Simmons College School of Social Work and supervised therapists in training.
