I've been a professor at Wellesley College and The Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and on the teaching faculties of The Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Psychoanalysis.
Everyone has strengths and vulnerabilities that need to be empathically recognized and understood for there to be realistic change. My job is to create a safe place where individuals and couples explore their current or long standing problems in order to find realistic solutions. A significant part of this involves carefully and mutually developing an appreciation of people's actual qualities and circumstances. I work with people in crisis or who sense they have patterns of living that could benefit from a clear understanding and want an expert and experienced partner to help facilitate their desired change.

I am trained in cognitive behavioral and psychoanalytic treatment modalities and consider psychotherapy as both an opportunity to address and reduce suffering, and to engage in a process of personal education. My practice focuses on patients who are seeking an alliance in addressing their concerns and suffering as well as patients who are seeking and willing to re-learn and engage in self-exploration toward the ends of better adjustment, understanding and awareness.

I teach and supervise at MGH and the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute.
I am an MGH-Harvard affiliated psychologist with a psychotherapy practice of over 30 years in the South End. I work with adults, young adults, college students and couples. My goal is to ease your distress and help you live the life you want. While my background is in psychodynamic psychotherapy, I believe that each person's needs are unique. Thus, I draw on a wide range of approaches to help resolve troubling issues--self-defeating patterns, paralyzing anxieties, or feelings of dissatisfaction in relationships.

I have combined my psychoanalytic training and professional executive coaching with my experiences in marketing and corporate advising to help guide people to create profound changes in their lives.
I work best with people who want to understand themselves and also what energizes and limits them in their environment. This exploration often shines light on helpful patterns and/or self-sabotaging patterns that create obstacles to reaching goals. Topics that I frequently work with are: career transitions, workplace/manager conflicts, life adjustments (marriage, divorce, children, college, loss, financial stress), anxiety/panic, relationship issues/patterns and transitioning in/out of maternity/paternity leave,.

I am also a Certified Psychoanalyst with a psychoanalytic practice.
I work closely and collaboratively with individuals and couples to move them beyond old, repetitive and unhappy patterns that hinder growth and freedom. Change happens in a deeply personal way, and never without trepidation. Effective therapy is a mutual undertaking in which fears, anxieties and deeply held beliefs are discovered and shifted. Depressive feelings, anxiety, unhappy work or personal relationships are often the result of unknown roadblocks we erect to protect us at a cost. Therapy provides a private and safe venue for discovering the reasons why life can feel flat, meaningless or frightening and can be the catalyst for profound movement and growth.

Worry, Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Grief, Overwhelming Feelings, Relationship Disasters... these are but a few of the issues that may lead someone to consider a professional who can support and assist you with your core concerns. I specialize in treating the human condition from a holistic perspective, always honoring the uniqueness of each individual and respecting their way of "being" in the world. Our aim together will be to explore and find revelations, resolutions,and solutions. Using a psychoanalytic approach, we will bring to light the driving forces behind the repetitive behaviors that tend to keep us attached to repeated outcomes.

I am faculty at the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis and serve as the Associate Editor for Psychoanalytic Psychology, the journal of the Division of Psychoanalysis of the American Psychological Association.
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.

I completed graduate training and a postgraduate fellowship at Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School; and then extensive psychoanalytic training at the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis, where I am now on the faculty.
I believe that self-awareness is the primary route to deep and lasting change. As an experienced therapist and certified psychoanalyst, I am committed to helping you become more mindful and self aware, both emotionally and intellectually, in order to effect real change in your life. People come to me for any number of reasons: feelings of depression and anxiety; difficulties in relationships; trauma or loss; or just a vague sense of being stuck in their lives. In the context of a private, trusting treatment relationship, I can help you to both heal and grow.

I work with adolescents and adults and apply a spiritual, energetic and psychoanalytic approach.
Life's journey can be full of crisis, loss, grief and trauma. These experiences can activate fear in the primal brain, altering patterns of behavior, create limitations in 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. https://counselorandhealer.com

I am currently receiving advanced training in psychoanalytic therapy and psychoanalysis.
** AT THIS TIME I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS** It can be so overwhelming to look for a therapist. So many options and decisions when you simply want to be helped during a difficult time in your life. You may be feeling stressed, sad, angry or just not yourself. Simply put, therapy is a unique and unusual experience; at times it can feel uncomfortable talking to a person you have just met. I encourage you to email me or call for a phone consultation. There is never any obligation following the phone call. It may be helpful to visit my website.

My approach to therapy is informed by psychoanalytic /psychodynamic principles, which places particular emphasis on emotion, interpersonal relationships, and the ways in which past experience may shape the way a client thinks, feels, acts, and relates to others in the present.
I work with adults of all ages who come to therapy for many different reasons-from anxiety and depression, to relationship concerns, to the stresses of major life transitions. In my practice I strive to create an environment of safety, compassion, respect, and curiosity. I collaborate with my clients to help them bring clarity to their concerns, understand themselves better, and work toward positive change in their lives.

If you want help dealing with loss, depression or anxiety, have difficulties in your important relationships, or are struggling with life transitions including career questions, issues of emerging adulthood, relocation, post college adjustment, caring for ill or aging family members, we can work together to help you feel happier and more satisfied. Using a combination of skills that include insight, practicality, empathy and warmth, I help people understand and resolve their difficulties and maximize their strengths. Psychotherapy is profoundly helpful in dealing with persistent problems rooted in the past and making headway with more immediate issues in the present.

Using psychoanalytic principles and a thorough understanding of addiction and recovery including, but not limited to the 12 steps, I can help you understand your relationship to your addictive substance and how to find your true self and create a relationship to this self that will set you free.
There is nothing harder than starting every day with the hopeless feeling that nothing is ever going to change and what's the use in trying? Whether caused by addiction to substances or behaviors, you can recover. Together we can do what you can't do alone or with the well meant advice of your friends and relatives. I would like to meet you and help you get started on the rest of your life with an understanding of how you came to the place you feel stuck in and how to move on to a better tomorrow. The hardest step in recovery is admitting you need help and making the call. You never have to be where you are again.
