Are you or a family member struggling with an addiction, loss, stressful job or other personal concern? As an active and engaging therapist, I have observed that when the chemistry between therapist and client works, the process of therapy can provide a multitude of results: curbing self-destructive patterns of behavior, providing relief from painful emotions, increasing productivity at work, increasing behavioral control and achieving greater meaning in one's life. I believe that these meaningful changes occur when there is a joint process of discovery in which the therapist attends to the expressed needs and goals of the client.

As a psychologist and psychoanalyst, I aim to help patients understand the trouble in their lives and make significant changes. I believe it is important to take the time to get to know patients' stories. My approach is both collaborative and challenging. Sometimes this involves helping people look at parts of themselves that are painful, or hard to see clearly. Many patients benefit from long-term, intensive therapy, while others find that shorter-term therapy helps them solve immediate problems.

I approach each client with the assumption that you are coming to me with an intention to alleviate discontentment or suffering. I see my job as helping you articulate your reasons for seeking therapy, to understand the source of your issues, and to find strategies that bring relief. My style is interactive, with an emphasis on caring and supportive feedback. I expect the client to establish the agenda for each session, trusting that the client knows best what needs to be addressed in any given session. I emphasize psychoeducation about the role of, and differences between, thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

I am accepting new clients! Life's journey can be full of crisis, loss, grief and trauma. These experiences activate fear in the primal brain, alter patterns of behavior, limit ones perception, lead to relationship issues, low self-esteem and addictions. If these problems are left unresolved, they can lead to physical and mental health problems as well as a weakened spirit, affecting ones core vitality for life. My spiritual approach provides clients with a safe, nurturing and compassionate environment where trust is easily built within the therapeutic relationship so that healing can take place.

Entering therapy is courageous. It can be a transformational space, a bridge from suffering to the discovery of choices that enable people to actively engage life. Depression, anxiety, fear and difficult feelings are not indicative of sickness, but rather signals that call for self-care, curiosity and empathy. I believe people's strengths are integral in the therapeutic process; I seek to help people access their humor, resilience, courage, intelligence, sensitivity and honesty throughout the healing process.

Hi, and welcome. For many people, the decision to get help can be a difficult one. I see your visit to my profile as a sign of strength and a refusal to give up. Loneliness, the inability to enjoy life, excessive worry or fear, anxiety in social situations, unhappiness or problems in personal, professional or marital relationships, not knowing what to do personally or professionally, even substance "abuse" and PTSD are issues that are interpersonal, not biological. They can be overcome within a genuinely understanding, compassionate, active, and patient therapeutic relationship.

I am an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and I study psychological growth, posttraumatic stress, and depression. My clinical work is inspired by my research. Generally speaking, my work begins in a humanistic-existential orientation. I believe in the client's potential for growth. When I enter a treatment, I listen to the individual, relational, and cultural narratives I am told; to the layers in each narrative; to my own reactions. I focus on feelings, unfulfilled desires, maladaptive defenses, and unsatisfying means of relatedness with past and present others - all of which generate anxiety.

The human mind is amazing. At every moment, we are experiencing a complicated mix of emotions, thoughts, sensations, and memories. We notice some of these, but most we do not. Emotions, in particular, are often perceived only vaguely, or they can seem mysterious, foreign, or out of our control. Contemporary neuropsychologists have found that the decisions that we make are much more influenced by emotions, some of which are out of our awareness, than they are by our rational thoughts.

*PRACTICE CURRENTLY FULL* I am an experienced, licensed psychologist in private practice, and on faculty at Harvard Medical School, and Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis. I work with adults and older adolescents struggling with depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. I never underestimate the complexities of the mind, personality, and the unconscious dynamics inherent in relationships. At the same time, I feel psychotherapy should be practical. I have a thoughtful, compassionate style in addressing the roots of repetitive distress, while keeping in mind that such work must also ameliorate more immediate distress.

I am now providing therapy via telehealth only. As a licensed clinical psychologist with over 25 years experience working with individuals/couples, I often see patients who struggle with unsatisfying family and personal relationships, health problems (e.g. infertility, cancer, chronic pain), grief and loss, and trouble with work and career. Change involves both insight and actual changes in one's behavior. My goal is to create a place where we can work safely to explore the origins of problems and rapidly create positive change in one's life. My approach is warm, supportive, and actively focused on bringing about lasting change.

Sometimes we notice that a problem or feeling of distress is not actually new, but one we have carried for a long time. Alternatively, stressful circumstances can suddenly challenge our usual and effective ways of coping requiring us to change. Psychotherapy offers an ideal context for modifying patterns of experience or feelings of being stuck that occur within our relationships, work, and internal worlds. This creative process contains elements of surprise that evolve over the course of the treatment, yet the work is also a demanding rigorous endeavor.

Most often people come to therapy because they are experiencing some depression or anxiety related to their relationships, work, or sense of themselves. Despite this pain, making the decision to enter into therapy is often difficult. It takes great courage and a certain amount of hope. It is important to find a therapist with whom you think you will eventually be as open and honest as possible; someone who is non-judgmental, and who can both give and accept feedback. I will take the initial sessions to help us figure out if we can be good collaborators in this undertaking.

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. 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.
