We want to feel peace and joy in this life. And mental health issues can make that difficult or nearly impossible to experience. I have experience treating clients with anxiety, OCD, depression, low self-esteem, and stressful life transitions which might look like racing thoughts, trouble sleeping or relaxing, difficulty getting rid of a particular thought or worry, feeling bad about yourself and the world, frequent tearfulness, or feelings of overwhelm. I provide a non-judgmental space to understand what you are experiencing. I work alongside clients to figure out what changes will get you to a place of well-being.

Through the course of a day, we all play multiple roles. Sometimes those roles can become restrictive and rigid, even inauthentic, as anxiety, depression, or shame cause us to feel less and less able to share ourselves honestly with those around us. For some, the trusting relationship created in therapy offers one of the few places where hiding is no longer necessary and one's whole self can be acknowledged without judgment, without shame. Together, we will create an environment conducive to the exploration of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that lends to greater self-understanding, new perspectives, and lasting change.

Many people struggling with chronic alcohol or drug addiction have difficulty finding a way to create a successful path forward to become free. Sometimes we are trapped in our own belief systems that keep us from being happy and keep us abusing alcohol and drugs. I can help focus on a practical solution. I have helped people very new to recovery, and those with years of recovery still dealing with past issues. It is possible to be free from negative emotions and thoughts ruling your life. There is a path to healing and forgiveness for everyone. I have worked in outpatient , residential, inpatient, and hospital-based settings.

What we endure in our lives can make the future cloudy and seeking help difficult. Acknowledging that you desire change is often the first step towards clarity. Many then find that they need further guidance, which is what has likely brought you here. I believe it is important for my clients to recognize and then use their strengths, past successes, supportive relationships (including the therapeutic one), and own hopes to obtain whatever goal they set forth. Moving forward I hope to build a strong, supportive, open therapeutic relationship which we can use toward a self-fulfilling and clear future.

Some things cannot be done alone. Managing grief, living with debilitating anxiety, tolerating resentment that will not relent - all are life challenges that require the presence of a patient listener who can bring words to pain where previously there were none. Our therapeutic relationship will create a safe space to share troubling feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that have been experienced as shameful, embarrassing, or isolating. I offer individuals an opportunity to examine past choices, current patterns of behavior, and impending decisions in a curious manner that promotes self-reflection and increases self-awareness.

My approach to therapy comes from a person centered lens and systems approach. In short, this means I approach every person that I have the honor to work with as the experts on their own lives and the many factors that effect their overall well-being. I approach every client with curiosity and unconditional positive regard and will hopeful help them to see themselves through this view as well. In session, patients can expect typical talk therapy with principles of behavior change techniques weaved in to provide some tools to meet their personal goals.

What type of Waltham 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Waltham?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
