You deserve to be seen and to be heard. You deserve to know those early childhood messages you received which show up today are not accurate to who you really are. You reserve the right to set boundaries without feeling bad about yourself or guilty. I lean in with curiosity and careful reflection, with compassion so we may uncover or discover the parts of you that may need repair and growth. I will honor your knowledge and journey. I use various clinical treatment approaches depending on your need, from a trauma informed framework, relational, attachment, emotion focused to spiritual/Christian faith/based.

I'm a mixed-race, queer therapist. I help LGBTQIA+ folks with anxiety, who want to build self-love and confidence. I work with people who are single, in relationships, navigating a break-up, or processing a past relationship. People often start working with me because while they’re smart and empathic, they struggle with things like getting stuck in an anxiety spiral when someone gets distant; mentally replaying conversations; worrying they’re “too much” or “not enough”; feeling afraid to date; or dating the same "type" again and again. They’re ready to work on feeling grounded in their worth.

Acknowledging that we cannot face life’s challenges alone and making the decision to ask for help is one of the most difficult and brave actions a person can take. I work from the perspective that all behaviors, thoughts, and feelings make sense within the context of our lives. At times though, things that once helped us cope with our circumstances no longer serve their purpose, but the thought of letting go or healing can feel overwhelming. My goal is to help clients gain better insight into their experiences while empowering a greater capacity for self-compassion and change.

There are times in life when talking to a psychotherapist is the most helpful and practical way to achieve relief from worry, hopelessness, and confusion. I offer a compassionate and down to earth therapeutic approach providing a safe place for you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself, resolve relationship issues and alleviate symptoms that are standing in the way of a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.

Utilizing EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback), therapeutic music and hypnosis, we have a creative approach to individualize a treatment plan for every client. Our practice consists of both children and adults. Primarily the children come to work on ADD/ADHD or autistic spectrum disorders. The adults come for an array of issues: anxiety, depression, migraines, chronic pain and sleep problems. In addition, we work with clients for peak performance, i.e., eradicating barriers from even higher executive, academic, athletic or artistic excellence.

People seek psychotherapy for many reasons. You may want to address symptoms of depression, anxiety, or low self-esteem, feelings of distress, vulnerability, or isolation. You may be searching for greater meaning, connection, authenticity, and empowerment in your daily interactions. Therapy can help reveal and change patterns that inhibit or undermine living the life you desire. In a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, we can create conditions for growth, challenge ways of seeing, process painful experiences, and increase your awareness and acceptance of different parts of yourself.

Clients who choose to work with me tend to feel that they could benefit from deep inquiry into existing problems and their origins. I will support you as you develop greater insight into where you feel trapped, hurt or inhibited, and together, we will figure out how to alleviate your pain. We may also draw on our interactions as a source for learning about old, repetitive patterns that are no longer useful, in order to enact creative possibilities for change and connection. I will encourage self understanding so that you can use it to make different choices, pursue goals, and feel more in control of how you want to live your life.

My work with clients is deeply informed by a central belief: when in connection — to self, values, a sense of purpose, body, community, agency, and choice — we are most ourselves, most alive, and most well. A feeling of disconnection, in my experience, often sits somewhere close to the heart of what motivates many people to seek therapy. My clients are often ready to risk something new in the service of growth, with or without a clear sense of what they want or exactly where they are going. We will together identify patterns of thinking, acting, and feeling that no longer serve and try to shift them in a direction that does.

The poet David Whyte writes, "Let my history then be a gate unfastened to a new life and not a barrier to my becoming. Let me find the ghosts and histories and barely imagined future of this world, and let me now have the innocence to grow just as well in shadow or light." Coming to therapy can help release you from the confining narratives of your history and help you discover a future you might not have previously imagined. I will work with you to hear from your pain and how that pain might be speaking to you.

In my 40 plus years as a psychotherapist, I've heard many times: "I want to be happy, to feel peaceful inside myself, but I can't seem to get there" or "I feel badly telling my friends and family. I worry they get tired of listening to me." There are many reasons people feel stuck in their anxiety, depression, or relationship problems, and feel immobilized by them. Understanding what is causing problems can help you feel less stuck and immobilized, more at peace, and more self-confident.

It is often difficult to be one's unique human self. How wonderful you have the courage to propel hope for deep and lasting change for your emotional struggles. Adults in individual and couples therapy deserve to experience loving relationships, and freedom from anxiety, depression, trauma, ADD, and one's idiomatic patterns of difficulty. When your strengths come to the fore, problems loosen their hold, creating the possibilities of you consistently being lovingly in charge of your own life. When your inner life is enriched, you increase possibilities for more abundance. Your private education becomes a great overall investment.

What type of Cambridge 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 Cambridge?
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.
