I work with a wide range of populations and issues including but not limited to depression, infertility, infant/pregnancy loss, adjustment, anxiety, stress, relationships, grief/loss, trauma, LGBTQA+ issues, school issues and self-esteem.
Life can be tough! But I think we sometimes forget our resilience when life, school, work, and family, throws us twists and turns. Sometimes, we need a little help in balancing all the demands that are placed upon us and that we place upon ourselves. Welcome to your journey to self re/discovery! You have taken a major step towards your goals even by reading this profile. As your Counselor, I see this as a collaborative process. Using a very kind, personable, authentic and non-judgmental approach, we will walk together as you discover your many hidden strengths along the way to hope and healing.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience working with individuals and couples. I often see patients who struggle with unsatisfying family and personal relationships, health problems (e.g. infertility, cancer, chronic pain), grief and loss, and trouble with work and career. Change involves both insight and actual changes in one's behavior. My goal is to create a place where we can work safely to explore the origins of problems and rapidly create positive change in one's life. My approach is warm, supportive, and actively focused on bringing about lasting change.

I became a therapist later than most and I bring a wealth of life experience to my work. A lesson I have learned is that life throws us curve balls. We often find ourselves in unexpected places, which can be confusing, humbling, heart breaking and sometimes shaming. Life has shaped me as a therapist and has also directed my areas of interest. These include; - trauma, couples, family work, infertility, IVF, divorcing families, grief and loss, social justice and personal empowerment.

Throughout almost 30 years as a clinical psychologist, I've been impressed that the emotional suffering affecting us all, at times, has such universal causes. Insecurities and shame connected to childhood experiences over which we've had no control can take root, damaging self-esteem and emerging in symptoms of depression, anxiety and self-destructive behavior patterns. Even without overwhelming childhood stressors, feelings of inadequacy, and once self-protective, now limiting "chains" of feeling/thinking/reacting can interfere with realizing dreams, weathering losses and meeting new life challenges in the areas of love and work.

The decision to seek therapy is often one people consider for a long time before making the first call. It's very important to me to make that initial contact as comfortable as possible, knowing that sharing painful emotions and experiences with a stranger is very difficult. I help clients identify what they want to gain from a therapy experience, and provide feedback all along the way to make sure we're working towards those goals.

Infertility Therapists
Infertility can have a profound impact on one’s mental health. When men and women find out that they can’t conceive, they may experience the same painful emotions as anyone coping with grief or profound loss. Common reactions include shock, frustration, grief, anger, decreased self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, but feelings about infertility can vary greatly depending on the source of the problems.

If you're looking for a Brookline infertility therapist, these professionals provide infertility therapy and counseling in Brookline.
