I completed a one-year internship at Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Hospital and a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Choosing to pursue therapy is a difficult decision but one that can offer great benefit. I work primarily with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and problems in their interpersonal relationships. Often clients I work with report feeling "stuck" in their lives. My approach is practical and present-focused yet grounded in the an understanding of the ways our past experiences may have contributed to our present difficulties. I help patients explore and work through what gets in the way of them leading a meaningful, satisfying life.

"We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection." -Brené Brown. So often it is the sense of connection between us that leads to, or at least contributes to, our distress. As a marriage and family therapist, I believe it is important to help individuals, couples, and families to be able to connect more authentically, developing healthy boundaries which allow for a balance of connection and autonomy.

I have 25 years of experience in the treatment of issues including: relationship struggles, postpartum depression and anxiety, low self-esteem, marital conflict, adolescent treatment and generalized anxiety and depression.
The therapists in our practice joined together because of our shared belief that our clients, who have reached out for help in managing and overcoming the challenges their lives, each have a unique set of strengths that often need to be better understood and developed. In our own styles, we each use the therapeutic relationship to understand what is interfering with an individual's sense of fulfillment in life. We approach therapy from the perspective that, at our core, our clients are health seeking but may be repeating old patterns that are not serving them well.

Life can be challenging and very difficult to navigate, whether it's concerning a career, school, an illness, relationships, etc., and often times, these life challenges are in co-occurrence with one another. Likewise, we tend to feel as though we are alone in facing life struggles, and I am here to help you understand that you are not alone. My goal is to validate you and your life experiences while guiding you in a way to effectively take on life challenges. Through validation, collaboratively, we can also recognize how your thought and behavioral patterns impact how you emotionally react to difficult life experiences.

Change is possible. My style is warm, engaging, and pragmatic. I ask many questions and help you to find your own answers.

When emotions have taken over, it is important get a broader perspective. I help you identify the beliefs and behaviors that may be getting in your way. Many times these are distorted, outdated beliefs or simply our bodies natural response to ongoing relational/environmental stressors. Neuroscience is providing excellent evidence of our bodies protective brilliance.
