A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit. I am only working virtually via Zoom and no longer working with children under 12.

A child psychologist, specializing in neurodevelopmental disorders i.e., Aspergers, NLD, Learning Disabilities, ASD, ADHD, and anxiety and divorce, I work with children individually, with parents, and in groups. I have many years of experience with young children ranging in age through mid 20's. I integrate a child's temperament, processing style, family dynamics, and developmental stage in guiding and supporting parents. In addition to focusing on life at home, I visit schools and consult around educational planning to support the child's growth and to offer the family an integrated approach.

I have been in practice for 25 years and work in my private, comfortable home office. People find me easy to talk to and often say I have the right balance between empathy and challenging them when necessary. People come to therapy because they are having difficulties handling their emotions in their work (or school) and personal relationships. As an Adult and Child Psychoanalyst, I have considerable experience working with a wide range of people from 3 years old and up to mature adulthood. I particularly like working with preschoolers, under-achieving "gifted" children, seemingly "lost" adolescents, adults and Seniors dealing with aging and retirement.

I help people who are having a hard time, often because of anxiety, relationships, work, and life transitions. Because anxiety is one of my areas of expertise, I have been working with many clients who are experiencing new or worsening anxiety since COVID began. I will listen closely to your story, attending to what is most bothersome right now and what your goals are. We'll discuss possible approaches to help you feel better. Then, together we will make a plan. I have extensive experience offering coping strategies and problem-solving skills, as well as CBT, IPT, and other relationship-focused psychodynamic therapy.

The most important factor in choosing a therapist or counselor, once you have established their credentials, is to select someone you are comfortable talking to. Research shows that the quality of the relationship can be more important to the outcome than the treatment modality. For this reason, I try to establish an understanding, collaborative and interactive approach, and I am happy to offer an initial phone consultation at no charge, before setting up our first meeting, You should always feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

CBT really works! Especially when you are working with a trained and experienced therapist. I hold advanced certification in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and use this approach exclusively. Together we will work to improve your insight, mood and motivation. You will learn what influences your mood and decision-making, and how ways of thinking and doing can lead to feeling stuck and hopeless. In addition to CBT, I can teach you powerful skills to improve distress tolerance and emotional regulation. These are skills you will learn to use now, and can rely on in the future. Let's get started!

I know how difficult it is to make that phone call and admit that you need help. Because of my personality, education and experience, I am able to make people feel comfortable to finally open up to someone and to let me help them. The quality of the therapeutic relationship is more important than any theoretical approach and it is this relationship that I focus on nurturing and it is this relationship that keeps clients coming back through the years, when they encounter hardships.

I draw on a range of approaches, helping my clients improve self-esteem, enhance relationship skills and develop effective coping strategies. In a goal-focused, collaborative way, informed by my training as a psychoanalyst, I help my clients understand and modify ineffective relational and behavioral patterns. I conceptualize clients' struggles in a holistic and integrative way, as I integrate cognitive-behavioral approaches with dynamic theory to bring about real change. Using a mix of cognitive, behavioral, and insight-oriented strategies, I have been successful in helping clients better manage relationships, anxiety & depression.

When beginning psychotherapy, individuals often feel vulnerable and in need of a safe space in which to examine their struggles and work towards healing. With over 25 years of experience, and as a Harvard-trained psychologist, I provide such a space. I work with empathy, intellect, and humor to help clients address such diverse concerns as life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, and eating disorders. My approach is grounded in psychodynamic and relational theories, and I use CBT and mindfulness techniques where appropriate to help clients understand themselves, achieve their goals, and find satisfaction in their lives.

Therapy doesn't have to be serious, it doesn't have to be formal, it just has to be about you. This is a chance to talk freely without worrying about other people's feelings or judgement. My job is to be an objective, calming, comfortable and validating presence. I am honored to hold this space for you.

I consider that answers are within clients, not in therapists, and I am here to help you find your own answers. My approach is truly eclectic, since I have deeply studied each of various methods, including psychodynamic, humanistic, person-centered, relational focused, Jungian, and cognitive & behavioral approaches. The approach is chosen based on my client's conditions, needs, and the stage of changes at that time. I also sometimes provide information about the connections among the brain, the nervous system, body conditions, and thoughts/emotions/behaviors.

Hi I’m Victoria! I’m so glad you’re here! I hope this is the first step in your personal growth journey. Mental Health is such an important part of our lives, and I feel it is the ultimate “self care” as it often leads to more insight, self awareness, and positive changes. The goal is to live with more intention and kindness towards others and most importantly ourselves. There are many reasons why someone may be interested in therapy - all of them are valid.

Life can be challenging for so many different reasons, and sometimes it feels like everything is happening at once or things just aren't going how we expected. Being vulnerable is difficult, and so is assessing ourselves honestly and kindly. It's overwhelming to look inward to assess the changes that we can make or the standards that we want to set for ourselves. Sometimes it takes an objective perspective to help us realize our reality as well as our potential.
