25 years of experience counts! I trained at Harvard Medical School and specialized in internal-family-system ( IFS ).
You are not alone! Children and adults who experience adoption, complicated divorce, domestic violence, sexual abuse, chronic illness or death feel hurt, helpless and scared. The good news is that with the right support you can create positive changes, feel better and learn to be stronger and more resilient! I am easy to talk to, patient and compassionate. I provide a warm and non-judgemental environment while taking an active role and suggesting new perspectives. I focus on what is strong not what is wrong. Together we discover your or your child's inherent strength and collaborate to develop healthier attachments and improved confidence.

Among these approaches are Art Therapy, Psychodrama, Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Meditation, Mindfulness, and Somatic Therapy.
Relationship issues, transitions, losses, and other life challenges can be overwhelming to face alone. During such times, it could be reassuring to meet a person who can support you and help you see hope. The goal is to gradually move away from old patterns and towards a happier, harmonious, and more fulfilling life.

My style of therapy is eclectic drawn from over 30 years experience and draws from Internal Family Systems ,cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy,mindfulness, hypnosis, breathing/sensory interventions and spirituality without religious denomination.
Perhaps I can best summarize my therapy approach by saying that therapy is an invitation to dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing" and "to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away". Taking the courageous step to engage in a journey of inner exploration for the purpose of remapping ourselves, re-assess our limiting beliefs, re organizing our interpersonal ways of relating, and understanding/fulfilling our life's purpose.You'll chisel out the best version of you.

My style is open, exploratory, inquisitive, and I draw from a variety of different theoretical orientations including psychodynamic, internal family systems , sensorimotor, cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, Imago, and motivational interviewing.
The transformational “magic” in therapy occurs when an alliance develops between therapist and client—when you feel truly seen, heard, and understood. I am here to listen deeply and journey alongside you as we discover ways to help you to get beyond patterns and behaviors that no longer serve you and move into a more hopeful, satisfying, and life-affirming future. Over the years, I've worked with couples, families, and individuals to address issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, family conflict, grief/loss, trauma, school issues, sexual orientation, aging, infertility, pregnancy, and self-esteem.

Depending on the client's presenting issue, my treatment approach varies from concrete problem solving, using mindfulness, or on working to recognize and speak for one's parts following the Internal Family Systems , ( IFS ), model, EMDR, Hypnosis and/or psychodynamic approaches.
In my practice, by face to face sessions or by using online confidential therapy, I work with clients to feel comfortable and to form a bond, based on trust, that will foster a relaxed positive therapeutic interaction. It is important to me that, from the very first session, the client can communicate his or her story and feels heard, so that I can understand the presenting issues, communicate hope, and formulate mutually agreeable goals to achieve in our work together.

My approach - a blend of psychodynamic, IFS and Sensorimotor therapy - can help clients access deeper layers of their unconscious as well as their own body's natural capacity to heal.
Are you feeling frustrated and stuck? Do you sense that you can do better? Are familiar coping responses no longer serving you as well as they used to? With over 15+ years of experience, I provide virtual counseling for adults that is secure and completely confidential. My specialty is in developmental trauma, which can leave an indelible impact on our adult functioning, relationships and bodies. I am particularly interested in studying and treating trauma's impact on men’s sexual development, such as unwanted sexual urges, sexual-identity confusion, addictions and fetishes. These issues require a value-neutral and nuanced approach.

I also often incorporate ego state interventions, such as Internal Family Systems and Parts work into my practice.
My specialty is EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which helps people to process traumatic or painful life experiences. Along with PTSD, often issues such as depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues or having a loud inner critic can be traced to traumatic or other significant life events. I have found that once earlier wounds are healed, clients are able to discover their inherent strengths, feel like a weight has been lifted, and can live with more ease and balance. My approach is person-centered, nonjudgmental, warm and collaborative.

I am a Level 1 trained Internal Systems ( IFS ) therapist with an eclectic skill set that pulls from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Yoga, and Expressive Arts modalities, and I tailor them to the needs and strengths of my clients.
Welcome and thank you for stopping by! Reaching out for help takes a lot of courage and even more courage is needed to endure the process of finding a therapist that fits you. I believe that healing begins with a healthy attachment to your inner self. Such an attachment requires focus on the relationship between mind, body and spirit. You are the expert and have important knowledge about what you need to achieve health and well-being. Together, we will explore this knowledge and channel it in service of the goals you want to achieve.

Our positive and safe therapist/client relationship is an essential part of resolving your concerns.

My primary focus is in providing more “bottom-up” interventions from EMDR, Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy to assist individuals in reprocessing and healing from trauma.
Over the course of my career as a clinical social worker, I have increasingly focused my work on providing LGBTQI-affirming psychotherapy to individuals who have experienced trauma, in its many interpersonal and systemic forms. As a white cis queer therapist, I continue to educate myself on the privileges and power dynamics inherent in my own social position in relation to my clients, and openly work from an anti-oppression framework.

What type of Brookline 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 Brookline?
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.
