The first goal of psychotherapy is relief from distress, but it should also be about how you want to live and what you want your relationships to be. I specialize in depression and anxiety and have particular experience in working with problems around relationship difficulties, creativity and family dynamics. My approach is open and based on the uniqueness of each person. This is basic to your feeling free to explore difficult, complex feelings. I work with you to discover how experiences have shaped the ways you see yourself and relate to others, sometimes in ways outside of your awareness.

These ingrained ways can feel self-defeating, limiting, or inauthentic. Their repetition can lead to anxiety and depression. Collaboratively, we work to understand all this. The goal is relief from ways of being that cause pain and to live in a way that feels expressive of who you are.

I am on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and of Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis. I have written and presented on on creativity and therapy at conferences that include a national Harvard Medical School conference and at a recent annual national conference of the American Psychological Association.
