From over 30 years of experience, I bring a warm and interactive approach to helping you address emotional issue/s that interfere with living the life you'd like to live. These emotional issues could be depression, trauma, anxiety, divorce , grief, abuse, low-self esteem, etc. I draw from a host of treatment models that I believe will best suit your needs including Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). One model is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) that's particular helpful in facilitating resolution of issues in a shorter amount of time.

I understand the importance of developing resilience-to-change in order to effectively cope with major life transitions (marriage, birth of a child, loss of a loved one, divorce , retirement, new job). Without such resilience, life can feel overwhelming, self esteem becomes precarious, and mood can dip dramatically. Through my warm, direct, highly international approach, I collaborate with my clients to address the behaviors that continue to cause pain. My books, teaching and supervision have provided training for 100s of other clinicians to help their clients to feel more empowered in relationship and to fulfill their potential

***I am currently accepting clients for intensive and adjunctive EMDR. I will not be accepting weekly clients until March 2021 at the earliest.*** I know looking for a therapist can feel daunting when you're depressed or anxious or when you feel like your relationship or job (or whole life) is falling apart. But it's a great step because a therapist can help you! With a therapist, you can work through your issues and go from feeling "stuck" to feeling like you're living up to your potential. I love helping people get there.

I work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma ("big T or little t"), and difficult relationships, whether that's with partners, parents, or coworkers. They want to be free from the repetitive behavior patterns and beliefs that keep them stuck in the same debilitating routine, and often don't know where to start, or how to do it. Looking at, and trying out new ideas or approaches can help. I am active, warm, and down-to-earth. I use mind-body, psychodynamic, somatic, cognitive, and coaching approaches, and sometimes just plain common sense, to help you shift your perspective, and change how you deal with situations.

With over 20 years of experience, I strive to work with a client in a collaborative and trusting way. Each client is unique and their individual story is worthy of empathy and respect. I'm an interactive therapist who supports open and free dialog in sessions. Clients usually have something that is bothering them, and that is the reason why they come; we start and work on those issues and as a trusting relationship develops, clients usually develop greater clarity, and self-defeating behaviors are gradually given up for those that will have a more positive outcome in their life.

I know that there are challenges in each person's life and I strongly believe that talking helps. I engage those that I work with by using dynamic psychotherapy. This is an ongoing process of talking, thinking and feeling. As these elements are shared, reconsidered, and reviewed over time a deeper understanding of the self emerges. This understanding leads to more choices in one's life. I respect the abilities that people bring to the challenges of life and their capacities to make changes. I treat the person not the diagnosis. Please text or call (617) 480-5155.

I believe good psychotherapy can simultaneously alleviate distress while also cultivating joy, creativity, and fulfillment for oneself and others. I offer a trauma-informed perspective that views psychological “symptoms” as useful adaptations to stressful circumstances. These adaptations deserve respect and understanding, even as we seek change. I am passionate about the integration of relational psychology, body-based practices, mindfulness, and cultural perspectives. I see both the therapeutic relationship and connection to the body as ways to reactivate the inner resources needed to thrive.

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, yet a common thread unites this motivation: the desire to understand one's inner experience in an authentic way. Therapy presents an opportunity to be curious, to foster new depths of understanding, and to develop a greater sense of meaning in your life. The therapeutic relationship provides a space to explore an intuitive understanding of yourself. The core of my therapeutic work is to help people articulate deeply held longings, and to decide if and how to manifest them in the world.

I am not currently accepting new clients and do not maintain a waitlist. It’s not too late to write a new chapter for your life’s story, revisit the earlier ones to edit (or abridge) and even rewrite from a place of newfound perspective. As a social worker for more than 10 years, I have worked with a wide range of people in a variety of community mental health settings. Clients can expect a relaxed therapeutic relationship focused on strengthening their interpersonal relationships and soothing old wounds and traumas in creative ways.

I believe that moments of transition provide powerful opportunities to examine and understand why and who we are, what we can do to accept ourselves while making the changes we want to see. Whether that transition is around perinatal experiences, employment, relationship challenges, or any other way our identity changes over time, it is my privilege to help people come through feeling healthier and stronger than they did before. I firmly believe that everyone that I work with has the power to be who and what they want to be. My job is simply to help them find their way.
