About

Are you struggling with depression? anxiety? relationship issues? parenting? post-partum depression? Is life overwhelming you? Many people suffer with these emotions and issues and I offer help. For over 20 years, I have provided clients with a safe, warm and welcoming environment in which they can discuss their most difficult, upsetting issues. My style is collaborative: I work with you to identify what your treatment should focus on and how you can achieve your goals. I am an interactive therapist, with a good sense of humor, who draws on a variety of theories and techniques to help move you forward.
I work primarily with adults, couples and adolescents struggling with mood disorders, parenting issues, work-related issues, relationship issues, ADHD, and anxiety disorders.
My practice will be moving as of 9/1/2021 and I will be located in Newton Center. I will continue to offer tele-health sessions as well as in-person.
