I have experience with individuals struggling with loss - a job, a relationship, a death, empty nest, or retirement.
Hello. I am a licensed clinical social worker in Boston, MA with over 20 years of experience in both clinical settings and private practice. My style is flexible and includes elements of psychodynamic therapy as well as solution focused techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy. People often find their way to treatment due to a life transition or circumstance in which the usual methods of coping no longer are effective. Finding a connection with a supportive experienced therapist can be invaluable in not only managing the transition but finding greater meaning going forward.

My specific areas of expertise focus on obtaining and maintaining fulfilling relationships, physical and mental well-being, pain management, career satisfaction and improved self concept, all directed towards becoming your Optimal Self, with my help as needed as a life coach.

To that goal, I provide individual psychotherapy to adults, couples, adolescents and families in a safe and supportive environment. Some of my specialty areas include anxiety disorders, depression and mood disorders, relational issues, family conflict, adjusting to life transitions, trauma, multicultural issues and LGBTQ clients.

I have worked in medical settings, youth empowerment programs, social justice nonprofits, and most recently at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Department of Psychiatry. I most often work with clients around anxiety, relationship concerns, family dynamics, job stress, body image, major medical events/illness (including end of life), and substance use concerns.

My approach to therapy is that I need to work myself out of a job.
I'm currently accepting new Couples Counseling/Coaching clients. My practice is virtual and is open to residents of Maryland, Washington D.C., Minnesota, Massachusetts, Georgia, Colorado, Texas, and Virginia. However, as a couples coach I work with clients in all 50 states. Working virtually gives you the opportunity to be comfortable in your own space while we talk about what’s on your heart and mind. I believe that therapy can be life changing. While it’s not a cure all, or a quick fix, it’s a way to deal with and process the stresses of daily life. I don’t have an agenda and I will meet you where you are.

On the surface, it looks like you have it all together: a stable job, a social life, maybe even a relationship. But when you're alone, self-doubt, anxiety, and dissatisfaction creep in. You catch yourself fixating on imperfections or past mistakes, questioning your choices, comparing yourself against others', and wondering if you'll ever feel content. It's possible that amidst the hustle, you've lost sight of who you are, where you're headed, and why you’re working so hard. Maybe it feels difficult to slow down, be in the moment, and enjoy your successes. You want to feel better but you're stuck and the way forward feels unclear.

I work with people on improving relationships, health, and career as well as navigating big life moments and creative endeavors. Over years of clinical work, I found that people made huge leaps forward between sessions when we emailed back and forth, so much so that I closed my in-person practice and now work with people entirely in writing. I also record audio practices, hand-draw diagrams, and share an abundance of actionable resources. Working this way has turned out to be incredibly effective. I encourage you to visit my website for a fuller picture.

It feels like it’s never enough. You never have enough time. And everywhere you go you’re needed. You try to be the best at everything you do…at your job, with your home, and with your family. But you continue to feel depleted and overwhelmed with responsibility. Sometimes it feels like you’re just surviving instead of truly living.
