I am a seasoned therapist who has worked extensively with individuals, couples and families through both the typical struggles of life as well as serious life crises. In therapy,I help my clients to identify their strengths and develop resilience and resources in the face of their challenges.Trust and safety are the bedrock of our work, and I believe that my clients value the caring, respect and experience I offer. Our work together includes clarifying the issues that trouble you, determining achievable treatment goals, and exploring both the obstacles as well as the pathways to reaching your goals.

I have been in private practice for over 25 years and have worked as a supervising clinician at Children's Hospital Boston, the director of psychosocial services at area hospices, and the patient services manager at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

I have worked with people of all ages and stages and with a breadth of issues that includes parenting and relationships, as well as coping with illness and bereavement.
