The clients I tend to work well with come in for a variety of reasons, but the common piece is their willingness to work toward their goals. This could mean increasing self-esteem, improving interpersonal relationships, and much more.

I am a psychotherapist with more than 20 years of clinical, teaching and research experience. I work with individuals experiencing an array of circumstances and challenges. One of my specialties is counseling people with a focus on those in high-risk professions (e.g., law enforcement, fire/rescue, EMS, military) and their loved ones. I also work with a broad range of individuals employed in other “helping professions” (e.g., medical and mental healthcare providers, veterinary medicine professionals, educators, prosecutors, clergy) whose careers may have been negatively impacted by job and/or personal circumstances.

In today's busy world, it's hard to find peace of mind. Many of us as a result, are overly stressed and experience negative effects of that stress, such as anxiety and depression. I believe that seeking help and opening up to another individual takes a great deal of bravery. Because of that, I have a tremendous amount of respect for the individuals I work with. As a counseling psychologist and registered yoga teacher, I approach mental health from a wellness perspective aiming to help clients find meaning and fulfillment in their lives.

My clients describe me as a genuine & actively engaged therapist. I am an experienced licensed psychologist who has worked in College Counseling, Hospitals, & Private Practice. I work with professionals & college students. Therapy research indicates that no single form of counseling is effective with all clients or problems, therefore I match my approach to the needs of my clients. I integrate several theoretical orientations, including Psychodynamic (insight oriented), Cognitive-Behavioral (skills development), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and emotion focused approaches, which create the basis of my compassionate style.

Would you like to understand your feelings or the ones of someone you love? Maybe you are not feeling like yourself. Perhaps you are having difficulty with making decisions. Are you always worried, having difficulty with sleep because your mind keeps racing with thoughts? Do you find that you are in a difficult spot in your relationship? Life is too short to not be feeling that you are not managing your emotions effectively or having a terrible relationship. Therapy can help you to understand yourself and other better, feel more regulated, and allowing you to have more agency in your life.

I believe we're all naturally inclined toward growth and success—each with our own strengths, desires, and goals that would lead us in the direction of contentment and happiness under optimal conditions. But we don’t live in a perfect world, and in an effort to adapt, we sometimes develop strategies that make sense in the short term, but aren't, in a lasting way, effective in moving us forward. We get stuck, leading to anxiety, frustration, and conflict, which leads in turn to us feeling bad about ourselves and our 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Boston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
