I have worked in school, residential and outreach settings with a variety of diagnoses including (but not limited to) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, PTSD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and Mood Disorders.
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.

I believe that therapy is most effective when there is a warm, supportive relationship between the therapist and child or teen. Does your child suffer from anxiety, trouble getting along with peers, depression, or behavioral problems? Therapy can help you child strengthen and learn new skills to address these concerns.

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.

[Full as of 3/1/22] Freedom is a lifelong pursuit. Psychotherapy is one way to pursue expanded freedom and pleasure in work, creativity, and relationships. I create a nurturing environment in which to explore everything keeping you stuck in repetitive patterns. I combine exploration and insight with actionable plans to make an immediate impact on problems. Whether the problem is practical or existential, I will work with you to discover your personal road map to thriving. Health is the ability to respond with flexibility and grace to the challenges of life, something I believe is possible for every client.

I find that successful psychotherapy usually begins by helping you to clearly envision what you want for yourself. In particular, how do you want your life to be? I help you think through your hopes for your self and identify factors that may interfere with your aspirations for you. From there, we will think through strategies and work through barriers as you seek to achieve your vision of how you want to feel, to relate to others, to work, to study or learn. Each person is entirely unique, and thus, my approach to help you live the life you want to live will be adapted to your unique self.

From the very first session, I collaborate with clients and families to address their current challenges so that they can bring greater joy, peace, and acceptance into their lives. So often, our difficulties stem from unhealthy, long-standing patterns that weave through development and influence how we see ourselves, relationships, & the world around us. I help clients to deepen their understanding of their challenges and strengths in order to more effectively reach their goals.

Worries, relationship difficulties, sadness or angst are all welcome here. You are tired of feeling irritable. Your feelings about your relationship, your job or yourself have begun to dominate your thoughts. Your ability to focus at work may be suffering. When your phone rings, you don't want to answer. You are feeling like you don't know how to get out of your own way. You know you mean well and are capable, but things are not coming together. You promise yourself things will change, you will get a handle on things this time. However, change remains elusive.

I have advanced training and years of experience helping those with substance abuse problems as well as identifying and dealing with the underlying issues that may drive the behaviors. Addictions often go hand in hand with other mental illnesses such as depression, trauma, anxiety, ADHD and bipolar illness. I also have advanced training in ADHD. My methods are non-judgmental and generally holistic, but I know enough about medications to be able to recommend when they may be needed. Life can lead us anywhere and it is my mission to make that a happier place for us all.

Oppositional Defiance (ODD) Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Newton or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Newton, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Newton.
