I am a clinical psychologist specializing in treatment for adults coping with anxiety, depression, eating disorders and other health related issues. I also work with people coping with conditions such as chronic pain, weight management, athletic injuries, and concussions. I work collaboratively with clients using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and positive psychology to teach strategies that help individuals better understand why they react and feel certain ways, and to make changes.

Over the years as a therapist, I have found that the common theme amongst my clients is not their diagnosis or their problems but their deep desire for Calmness, Clarity & Connection. They seek therapy because something is not right in their lives and they want to find a better way. The ingredients to healing are found in these three elements. Whether it is through individual therapy, teen support/skill building, The c3 Method or even within the audience of my public speaking events, my clients engage in a process that leads them away from their struggles to a place of Calmness, Clarity and Connection. ​

I am a clinical social worker working in the field of relational therapy for over thirty years. I believe that we are all hard wired for connection with others but that often experiences and traumas from the past interfere with one's ability to have healthy, growth enhancing relationships with others and with oneself. Using relational therapy, mindfulness and relaxation techniques, I work with people to enable them to find their way into healthy connection with themselves and with others in their lives.

As a therapist, I aim to provide a safe, open, empathetic and trusting space for my clients. I work with individuals of all ages and populations to help cope with life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction and relationship issues. While meeting clients where they are, I take a non-judgmental, strengths-based approach to increase self-compassion and self-worth. While I utilize a number of therapeutic modalities, I focus on ACT, CBT and trauma informed care, working with my clients on accepting and embracing their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting them.

When I meet my clients for the first time, we may decide to seek solutions to ADHD, OCD, anxiety or depression. Parents may be looking for a resolution to a child's school under-achievement, home conflict or social disconnection. In each situation, my belief is that therapy supports skill development and fosters a sense of balance, or equanimity.

I am always curious about how we become who we are and as someone once told me, “A person who enters therapy is an experience that wants to happen not a problem to be solved.” My focus is to encourage people to stay curious and open to possibilities of learning more about themselves, creating a supportive safe environment that supports positive movement and change. I stress the importance seeing oneself fully, psychologically, physically and spiritually. All these are important ways of supporting one’s life. I see myself as warm, present, accessible and being of help to accomplish this.

As a clinical psychologist with over 30 years of experience, I want to understand you as a whole person with strengths as well as current difficulties. If you are looking for a therapist, it is generally because many efforts you have made to solve a problem haven't worked. You may be faced with a very difficult and painful situation, such as a relationship problem, loss, job problem, or illness. Or, you may be experiencing symptoms which are associated with emotional distress, such as chronic anxiety, social anxiety, or depression.

I work with clients whose anxiety/depression has made it difficult to get the most out of their day. Together, we can work to figure out how to feel less overwhelmed and more empowered to do what you want to do without the worry getting in the way.

I am glad to support those struggling in today's strange climate, or those looking to explore themselves and increase health and wellness while quarantined. My approach to treatment is strength based and multimodal. I use a holistic approach that can incorporate discussion, art, movement and humor to explore issues. I work well with those who have had trouble connecting with therapists in the past and those who may be resistant to entering treatment.

What type of Newton 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Newton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
