In practice for over 21 years, I have extensive experience in ADHD/ADD, Learning Disabilities, and Personality Development. I provide a "down to earth," private and confidential environment where clients feel comfortable identifying and solving problems that continually disrupt their lives. Specializing in ADHD/ADD and Learning Disabilities, initially client's display increased thoughts of underachievement, distractibility, feel unfocused, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, anger, and sometimes "just feel stuck". We develop structure, focus, and clarity enabling a better understanding of oneself, therefore progressing with the necessary tools and strategies to feel comfortable and productive in their lives.

Sorting out complex medical, psychological and neurological complications to learning and behavior are among my specialties.
I welcome the opportunity to demystify concerns with learning , behavior, or adaptation in children of all ages and in young adults who may have longstanding difficulties. I use a battery of standardized tests in addition to interview and observation to help understand what underlies struggles, and what to do about it. A child may have anxiety and learning difficulties: what should you focus on first? A teen or young adult may have had a concussion, and problems with mood or attention which predate injury. How do we go about planning interventions which will work?

After more than 25 years of experience treating children, adults, and couples, my interests and skills extend beyond my training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapy—to include work on trauma and PTSD, complicated grief, learning disabilities, CODA, CBT, and biological insights—moving a person to self-awareness & practical self-guidance.
There’s no one therapeutic approach to help us live happier lives. Recovery from painful experiences, emotional or physical abuse, a complicated hurt-filled relationship, impasses at work, coping mechanisms that no longer help—these different challenges deserve flexible approaches. Childhood skills no longer fit the problems we face as adults. Grief that couldn’t be dealt with then is more complicated now. Relief from depression and anxiety cannot work if confidence, strength, and intimacy are blocked. Understanding the whole person—creating new approaches and thoughtful solutions to problems—is the way I think and work.

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.
