My training emphasized cognitive-behavioral approaches to addressing mental health issues and I have enhanced those skills through additional training in psychodynamic, relational, & mindfulness -based approaches.
I approach each client as a whole person and strive to create a collaborative relationship where there is room for both problem-solving approaches and insight-oriented, transformative personal growth. Often clients seek me out to address issues of identity related to race, sexual orientation, gender identity and class & we work together to explore and integrate aspects of themselves, allowing them to thrive and be successful in relationships and work. Counseling often requires clients to do work outside of the session, and I support clients in continuing their self-exploration through readings, journaling and other self-care work.

I have over 30 years of experience in treating anxiety and depression, using multiple approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and relaxation techniques, as well as general "talk therapy", based on a psychodynamic approach.
I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and depression, using multiple approaches (see below). Many of my clients are college or graduate students, and young professionals. But I also work with older adults. Clients say that they have an easy time talking with me, and that they feel a strong connection and rapport in the therapy. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and in the healing process, but I also believe in the importance of using various tools and techniques to help clients achieve their goals.

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.

I use a combination of CBT (identifying connections between thoughts, emotions, behaviors); mindfulness (promoting relaxation and awareness); and relational work (improving interpersonal interactions), all with warmth and humor.
In addition to my faculty and hospital-based roles, I have a private practice for children, adolescents, and adults. I am trained in evidence-based approaches, including cognitive and dialectical behavior therapies (CBT and DBT), and treat a range of psychiatric diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, self-injury, trauma, somatization, and eating disorders. I am committed to working with LGBTQI+ youth, including those questioning their gender and/or sexuality. I welcome patients and families from all backgrounds and I strive for culturally responsive and attuned care.

I utilize traditional therapies as well as mindfulness based cognitive therapy to explore how we can challege any negative distortions that may be keeping you feeling restricted and unfulfilled in life.
With sixteen years of experience working with adults of all ages, I have helped many individuals find their way through symptoms of anxiety and depression with gentleness and compassion. Often my work focuses on how we relate to ourselves and the world. By cultivating self-compasssion and challenging negative self perceptions, I believe we can begin to realize and feel our intrinsic wholeness. I also help clients to navigate interpersonal relationships and transitions, which can challenge us and impact our sense of community and our place in the world. Additionally, I focus on health, wellness and humor for psychological healing.

Before entering private practice, I had worked as a mindfulness -based therapist in Asia, had a variety of experience working with individual adults, children, couples and families.
Psychotherapy has always been for those who are ready to experience healing. Along with alleviating "symptoms", my approach is most effective for individuals who are seeking a deeper understanding of underlying causes and who strive for personal growth. Together, we explore the root of current feelings that led things astray. We can gain insight into self-awareness, understand our behavioral patterns, build resilience, and develop better coping mechanisms. Doing so empowers us to reach emotional maturity and enable more fulfilling relationships.

I integrate treatments that fall under the umbrella of CBT including DBT, mindfulness , & ACT.
Change is hard, but less so with help. I hope I can be your guide through the change process. I am a clinical psychologist trained in CBT. I have a faculty appointment at Harvard Medical School and am on staff in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. I run a private practice on Sunday mornings and have intermittent availability during the rest of the week. I am comfortable providing treatment in an individual or family context, whichever better fits your needs. I am results driven, but also warm and sensitive.

Believing that all therapy starts by building a detailed understanding of each person in the context of a developing therapeutic relationship, I will work with you collaboratively to develop a plan for your success based on your specific goals. Often, this plan includes enhancing knowledge, increasing self-awareness, and learning new skills. I offer an integration of therapeutic approaches, including relational (focusing on interpersonal interactions), mindfulness (emphasizing awareness and attention to one's experience), and cognitive-behavioral techniques (focusing on the impact of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors).

I draw from psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, family systems, and mindfulness based therapies.
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.

I specialize in helping men, women, artists, business and trades people, as well as adult children of alcoholics restore diminished or lost connections to their poietic capacity. The word poiesis is from ancient Greek, meaning to make, or to bring forth. In my work, I refer to it as meaning one’s creative capacity to respond to and shape one’s life - as well as one’s capacity to create things i.e. art, woodwork, poetry, a relationship, a mindfulness practice, a career, a garden, etc. When we are overwhelmed, our mental health can suffer, sometimes making it difficult for us to respond to life's challenges in a way that works for us.

Children and adults alike confront challenges to healthy functioning and personal fulfillment. I aim to create an empathic connection with my clients, enabling them to better understand their emotions and habitual ways of coping with challenges, and to change the patterns of thought and behavior that interfere with reaching their goals and potential. Whether using play therapy with children or talk therapy with adults, I take an active approach to help clients achieve their goals and resolve their problems. When treating children, I work closely with parents, providing careful guidance about how to help their child develop and thrive.

My therapeutic approach is rooted in cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness and acceptance-based behavioral interventions.
Experiencing emotional pain, worry about the future, and feeling stuck are common human conditions. Through therapy you can find new ways to change and relate differently to your feelings, thoughts, and actions. It is possible to live the life you’d like to live, and our work together can bring you closer to that.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
