As a therapist, I attend to this relationship with a warm, engaging, non-judgmental approach that often includes honest feedback and humor as well.
Seeking help during a time of need can be an overwhelming experience. Yet, this first courageous step can lead us to finding ways to handle life's many stresses, ways that will ultimately lead to a stronger, positive sense of self.

Choosing wellness can be a daunting and overwhelming task. Asking for help can feel scary and anxiety provoking, sometimes we doubt our capacity to change. Therapy is an essential tool we will use to disentangle your life and relationships while building clarity and self-awareness. Committing to wellness and making room for subtle change will alter your life as you know it. Strengthening a relationship with yourself will naturally inspire and deepen your connections to others. I look forward to getting to know you. Congratulations on taking this first step towards relief.

My counseling work is focused on adolescents and young adults. I feel it is invaluable for young people to have an advocate and sounding board while navigating these years of great change and evolution. I look forward to getting to know you and exploring how we can work together toward healing and growth. With young adults, I believe that the client is the expert of their lived experience. I partner with my client to explore a variety of issues that may be holding them back from wellbeing and peace. This may include difficult beliefs, patterns and behaviors that they want to change, relationship issues, career changes, and anxiety.

I believe that the relationship is key in therapy. I am known by my clients and colleagues as warm, humorous, caring and compassionate while still being direct and challenging, when it's helpful. I use an eclectic approach to therapy that integrates relational, humanistic, and psychodynamic theories while utilizing some mindfulness, meditation, and psychoeducation. I aim to always provide a safe, nonjudgemental environment with the hope of making it easier for us to explore difficulties, navigate emotional disturbances, and identify patterns from the past to the present.

I am a psychologist who began my career as a dancer and then became an expressive therapist, which grounds my treatment in both psyche and soma. I love working with couples around relationship issues and sexuality. My work is both psychodynamic and cognitive, drawing on the integration of logic, philosophy, and emotion. The most crucial component of successful treatment is a good sense of humor. I work to create a safe space for exploring any emotion or pattern, no matter complex.

It's gratifying when couples receive help for pre-marital counseling and to decide whether to separate.
I enjoy working creatively with clients. Whether you suffer from anxiety, problems with a loved one or you can't make a decision, I have experience in problem-solving using your strengths. I work with families, teens, and adults who are stressed and totally 'stuck.' I've lived and raised my children in Cambridge, MA and Cuba, and love the diversity of working with inter-racial and trans-national families. I also worked in Tchad. I work with college-bound adults who are balancing social needs with a heavy workload. Is therapy work? Definitely. Is there support available? Yes. In Spanish we say- vale la peña -it is worth it.

Does life right now seem difficult, confusing, overwhelming? Do you feel empty, or stuck? Have you experienced a painful loss? Are you dealing with a life transition, wishing to achieve something new without knowing how to move forward? Do you long for a relationship ? Or is the relationship you have contentious, troubled or unfulfilling? I will work closely and collaboratively with you-whether an individual or couple-to examine what is troubling you, to understand and unravel repetitive, unproductive behavior patterns, to help you move forward into change that promotes growth, relieves painful symptoms and limitations, and creates a new sense of expansion and choice.

Anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, regret. Marital conflict, parent-child struggles. Alienation, isolation. These are not just words. They are real problems that don't always have easy solutions. I help clients to learn, grow, and resolve their problems -- whether big or small, simple or complicated. Those problems may include: self-defeating habits, hurtful relationship patterns, overwhelming anxiety, or debilitating depression. Want a safe place where you are appreciated and your experience is validated? I can provide it. Need interpersonal understanding and wise guidance? I can offer that, too. Want to mobilize inner resources? With my help, you can. Contact me.

I am certified in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), which is immensely powerful in improving the bond between partners.
Often, people come to therapy because they are living lives that they never planned on. It becomes clear that difficulties from the past are getting in the way of settling into relationships. I am interested in helping people overcome losses - the loss of time due to depression, the loss of previous versions of oneself due to unresolved feelings, illnesses, or injuries, the loss of relationships that might have succeeded had one been more able to give to or receive from others, and the loss of one's identity due to the demands of work, relationships, or culture. I believe creativity, spontaneity, and humor can contribute to growth.

A trusting and secure therapeutic relationship is the basis of our work.
Welcome. My work is to help you find more ease, joy, connection, meaning and purpose in your days. Emotional suffering is part of being human, but it is possible to face challenging life situations with a clear head and an open heart. We can cultivate trust and hope in the face of traumatic personal histories and loss. Wouldn’t it be nice to let go of fear and anxiety, as well as the old stories that still have a grip on you, to stop repeating self-defeating patterns and find a place at the clearing for something new?

" I offer individual and couples psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
The premise of psychotherapy is that every crisis presents an opportunity for growth and change. Against this backdrop, psychotherapy is an adventure of insight unique for every person, whether the reason for seeking treatment is a current stressor or the wish to be free from longstanding dysfunctional patterns that interfere with fulfillment in the spheres of love, work and play.

As a person-centered, relationship -based therapist I believe that we are all on a journey towards being our best selves. However, there are times on that journey when we need a little support. Therapy is a time for self-exploration, reflection and care. My approach is strengths-based and solution-focused, utilizing the philosophies and tools of the major psychological approaches.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
