You just spent another night doom-scrolling TikTok. When you’re not doing that, you’re binging Netflix, or tumbling down a YouTube rabbit hole. Worries about your partner, your body, your friends, or your job keep swirling in your mind at night. “What if...?” is your brain’s favorite question. You try your best to always make the right move, be a supportive friend, a good family member, and an ideal employee. But you still feel like you’re never doing enough. And you’re terrified that any slight misstep will make everything come crumbling down.

Are you struggling with intrusive thoughts, chronic distress anchored to "what if..." scenarios, or crippled by daily uncertainty? Do you find yourself engaging in time-consuming rituals, mental compulsions, reassurance-seeking, or avoidance behaviors in order to ward off feared consequences or make things 'just right'? You may be experiencing symptoms of OCD and might greatly benefit from exposure and response prevention (ERP) techniques aimed at conquering the obsessive-compulsive cycle that is keeping you from living your life flexibly and joyfully!

My treatment approach is integrative and personalized to my clients’ needs, focused on building a foundation of trust. I work with clients to identify underlying roots of problems and elicit existing and new strengths and resources. I prefer a holistic approach to treatment which, while based in a psychodynamic framework, draws from my specialized training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, attachment based, trauma-informed and mindfulness modalities. I work with adults ranging from young adulthood through end of life, using a culturally-sensitive approach.

Maybe you can't seem to find the "right" job, or the "right" man, or the "right" city, no matter how many options you try. Maybe you feel like you've let others determine your life choices. Maybe you know you're not on the path you should be, but have no clue what "your path" actually is. Call that a Quarter Life Crisis, call it "adulting" problems. No matter what you call it, if you're tired of feeling like you're wasting your life without a clear direction, I can help you get on the path YOU want to be on. In addition, I'm trained also in working with people in Narcissistic Abuse, Attachment Styles & Toxic Relationships.

What type of Boston mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Boston?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
