**I am not currently accepting any new referrals** I have been working as a psychotherapist in the Boston area for over 25 years. I work hard to help create a safe space in which individuals can explore struggles without the fear of judgment.

I have a particular interest in Eating Disorders, Chronic Pain, Attention Deficit Disorders, Adoption /Attachment, Trauma, Depression, Death/Loss, Divorce and Anxiety.
I have over 35 years experience working with children, youth, adults and couples. I help patients identify, focus and attend to what really matters to them and help them understand how to deepen their relationships. Many problems emerge in actual therapy sessions so that problem solving together can occur in the present. I work with people weekly and sometimes multiple times per week given my belief that change comes about from a earnest commitment to understanding ourselves. I help children and adults recognize their unique ways of thinking and experiencing relationships, and how self understanding promotes change and makes a happier and healthier life.

I have helped people to build more satisfying relationships, to achieve more success in their careers, and to address parenting issues particularly those associated with adoption .
Do you not have enough satisfaction in your life? Do you wish you were in a relationship? Are you struggling with the one you are in? Do you wish for a better career? Talking in a therapeutic environment helps people take more control of their lives, allowing them to experience a quality of life that was otherwise impossible. It is rewarding to see this type of change take place with my clients.

I believe that therapy is a journey towards growth and change. Over the past thirty years, I've had the honor of sharing this journey with adults of all ages, as well as adolescents and children. In the beginning, I often help people with an immediate problem or crisis. My personal style is warm, supportive and interactive. I draw from cognitive behavioral techniques, which stress concrete, behavioral change. Gradually, I create a safe space where we can establish a trusting relationship. People begin to identify the patterns they want to change. They replace old behaviors with new ones.

As a psychotherapist, I help clients better understand how we carry old wounds of hurt, loss and trauma into the present and how those wounds affect the way we manage our lives and relationships. Life stress--marriage/divorce, parenting, vocation, illness, loss--as well as the challenges of the lifecycle itself--young adulthood, midlife, senescence--can stir up old, unprocessed turmoil. Having been trained in psychodynamic, family systems and EMDR, I strive to attentively, compassionately and actively engage with my clients so that they might free themselves of old wounds and current impasses to live more loving and whole lives.

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.

I offer home-based life coaching for teens, 20-somethings, athletes, adults, and their families in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and beyond. I work with clients at home in a positive, flexible, proactive way, emphasizing measurable, practical, and sustainable change. My approach is relaxed, non-hierarchical, and results-oriented. Although I also work with adults, I primarily help teens and 20-somethings, from kids who lack confidence and/are overly stressed or anxious to those with athletic/academic performance issues or who are really acting out, having issues with anger, substance abuse, school refusal and the like.

I am currently accepting new clients. I work from compassion, strength-based, humanistic approach. I join clients on their journey and allow them to lead while guiding them when needed. I focus on play and art therapy with younger aged children. I believe that young children often know what they need to process and with support are able to do so through various forms of play. I combine mindfulness and grounding exercises with looking into your past and how those past experiences affect you currently. And through utilizing mindfulness you can sit with, understand and work through the feelings that are impacting you.

I am interested in supporting patients to understand themselves, their feelings, relationships, behaviors. I find that this understanding, along with the space to experience feelings, leads to the possibility of growth and change. I work with men and women, facing a broad range of personal, work, and family issues. I have often worked with people in their 20's and 30's who want to establish a successful intimate relationship.

As a former cult member, I help people and their families who have been "unduly influenced." I am committed to helping people reclaim their personal power. I wrote Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults and Beliefs (2013), a 30th-anniversary edition of Combating Cult Mind Control (2018) and The Cult of Trump (2019). I help people from all over the world who have found that mental health professionals unless they are specialized in treating cult members, are at best a waste of time and resources, and worse, do further harm. A large part of my practice is short term work with former members.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
