Mental health difficulties often arise in the context of an absence of close interpersonal relationships. Symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, and severe, persistent mental illness can be successfully treated through improvements in one’s capacity to develop and maintain adaptive, healthy interpersonal connections and engagement in meaningful and enjoyable activities. I have more than 36 years practicing clinical psychology. I retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs on May 31, 2022 and I'm now expanding my private practice. Flexible schedule. I'm available for both teletherapy and in-office session. Lots of free parking.

Video or in office. I've been working as a therapist for 30 years both in NYC and here in Western Mass & I have a broad range of experience which informs my practice. Having worked in community based mental health as well as hospital & college settings over the years, I have engaged with people from ages 18 - 80 years old, from diverse cultural & class backgrounds. I have come to appreciate the value & importance of the therapeutic relationship. People enter therapy for various reasons & I will listen with a compassionate ear to understand your concerns. Trust is essential & develops when you feel heard. Change will follow.

Good therapy helps us shift from feeling blocked by internal conflicts and fears to having a transformative relationship with ourselves and others. Mindfulness and IFS are two highly effective approaches to help access beneficial qualities of mind, even in difficult circumstances. I have successfully helped clients with a wide range of issues for 20 years, and have taught and supervised students in these techniques.

Feeling stuck? I base much of my approach on the idea that we are not programmed to be our own best friends, and that gets in the way. Our minds' default settings are not usually set up for us to feel extra self-confident, extra self-compassionate, or extra calm when the storms roll in. Life generally doesn't let us off the hook very easily, but if we can learn to look at things in new ways, we can find peace in knowing that we are doing the best we can with what life has dealt us.

I believe that therapy can be a deeply strange, powerful, and intimate experience. As a therapist, I try to cultivate a space that is playful and authentic. Together we can examine longstanding patterns, relationships, and modes of being in the world. First and foremost, I'm committed to creating an environment where you can start to put language to confusing, difficult, and sometimes hard to express feelings and experience. Perhaps even more important than articulating thoughts or ideas about yourself, the hope is that together we can find ways for you to experience a deeper and broader range of feeling.

My 14+ years working in a therapeutic milieu as well as my time in private practice working with individuals, couples and families has contributed to developing an approach that seeks to help clients better navigate their systems (Families, Schools, Jobs, Relationships, Peer groups, etc.) as well as the issues they might be struggling with individually. Incorporating cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, narrative and mindfulness based techniques, I strive to help the people I work with develop coping skills, improve self esteem/assertiveness, reduce anxiety/depression, cope with loss and trauma as well as improve relationships and overall sense of well being.

My client is the expert on my client and my job is to help unlock their innate wisdom. Our troubles are the side effects of adaptations forged by hardship, and we can change them using strengths in ourselves, families and community. Feeling more connected to others involves communication skills, and tolerance for irritation and vulnerability (inevitable in close relationships). Therapy can help you hold your pain differently. You can feel better living with your past, instead of waiting to get rid of it. I help clients to address spiritual roadblocks and to help build a fulfilling and meaningful life, with the pain.

Psychotherapy is incredibly helpful not just in managing mental health diagnoses such as Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, etc., but it is also a powerful support in navigating the ways in which we can all get stuck in undesired and unhealthy patterns in our lives and relationships. My goal is that your experience of therapy is one in which you feel deeply heard and understood, challenged in healthy ways, and safe and comfortable to explore a wide range of thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a neutral and non-judgmental setting.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
