Sometimes things are just too hard to handle on your own. As a senior clinical psychologist with over twenty years in the field, I can help you cope with painful feelings and situations, diminish troubling symptoms and experience greater satisfaction in your life. Whether you are dealing with long standing issues or reactions to recent stressors, a good therapy experience begins with a caring, respectful, accepting relationship . I listen closely and actively raise questions and share thoughts. Working collaboratively, we can develop a full picture of your difficulties and of the resources you have for dealing with them.

I am an experienced therapist, having been in private practice for 20 years after 10 years in the Psychiatry Department at MGH. A good fit is crucial for a pleasant, successful therapy, so developing a flexible, resilient relationship as we start is primary. I am interested, empathetic, and communicative, and sometimes very humorous and fun. I combine psychodynamic and behavioral approaches -- psychodynamic to help people understand why they react, feel, and behave in certain ways, and behavioral to then use that understanding to change automatic reactions, old behaviors and no-longer-useful ways of seeing themselves and connecting to others.

Specialty/areas of interest: infertility and grief counseling, bereavement, depression, anxiety, relationship issues , and life transitions- specifically young adults exploring their identify and new parents adjusting to the transition of parenthood.
Life can be stressful, chaotic, and overwhelming. Transitions such as college graduation, a new job, separation or divorce, a significant loss, or becoming a new parent can add to our already complicated and stressful lives. Acknowledging that you need help and taking the step of finding a therapist is not easy. It takes both strength and courage. My goal is to help my clients on their personal journey. I believe the power of the therapeutic relationship is what ignites understanding, acceptance, healing, change, and growth.

I am interested in the body/mind relationship and transforming negative thoughts/feelings to positive thoughts/feelings to live a more peaceful, fulfilling and personally powerful life.
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.

Over the course of my thirty-plus years of practice as a psychologist, carrying a family legacy of suffering during the Holocaust, I have come to believe in the power of compassion and human relationship , the possibility of healing from trauma and loss, and the existence of the uncanny and miraculous.
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.

Relationship and connections vital throughout life.
I think it goes without saying without saying that therapists needs to be compassionate, caring, calm curious and genuine. No shaming, no judgment only a question, what happened? What curve balls did life sent your way? My approach is holistic integrative and relational. If it works for you I will introduce you to a tool box of resources: somatic, energetic, EMDR, Flash etc as together we make sense of where you are now, what you are feeling, how to help you shift to a place of renewed empowerment and control, to be who you want to be and feel how you want to feel? A system/soul update to a renewed place of joy peace and harmony

Over the past 20 years I have learned that my clients come to therapy to be heard, understood, and to make sense of the complicated issues and relationships in their lives. People begin therapy for many reasons; feeling stuck, overwhelmed,confused or consumed with anxiety and depression. Couples come to therapy to improve their communication, to increase their co-parenting skills, or to enhance their emotional and physical intimacy. A good psychotherapy relationship can improve your feeling of well-being. It can be helpful during periods of transition and provide a safe place to explore past traumas or recent losses.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Newton relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Newton.
