As a psychodynamic therapist with extensive training in existential philosophy, I will work with you to establish a relationship that creates space in your life for movement and change.
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 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.

***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.

With any client, I pay special attention to the therapeutic relationship and I focus on discovering the unique strengths that may help them overcome their problems.
I provide a warm, supportive environment where individuals can feel that someone truly cares about their issues and wants to understand where they've come from and where they want to go. I only work with individuals (rather than couples or families) and can see clients who are at least 18. Sessions are Telehealth (video chat) only.

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

Are you feeling depressed or anxious and having trouble dealing with your home or work life? Are you struggling with your partner or mate, in the middle of a break up or having trouble finding a healthy relationship ? Do you find yourself unfocused, unsure of yourself, overwhelmed, or lonely? Sometimes transitions like looking for a new job, starting or ending a relationship ,deciding whether to have children or moving to a new area can be difficult. Uncomfortable or painful feelings which are coming from a life change or a past experience can sometimes feel insurmountable.

My role is to assist individuals to attain therapy goals that result in an improved life. Any motivated person is capable of modifying beliefs and behaviors that get in the way of a more satisfying life. If you are depressed, anxious, or have relationship concerns, psychotherapy provides a setting to better understand yourself and offers techniques to facilitate changes. I also treat individuals experiencing losses or transitions to new life stages. Even desirable events such as; graduating college, developing significant relationships, or job and location changes, can be stressful.

I believe in the power of talking and the therapeutic relationship to help my clients better understand their inner worlds and cope with the complicated realities of life. Together, we strive to draw meaningful connections that can ultimately lead to personal fulfillment and successful relationships. My work is informed by psychodynamic concepts — exploring how the unconscious and early experiences may impact one's emotions and relationship dynamics. I emphasize collaboration and open dialogue about our process together, and use a social justice lens to acknowledge the ways in which the socio-political context impacts experience.

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.

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.

If you are caring for an older adult with whom you have a relationship , you may find that it can be quite complicated, regardless of how good the quality of the relationship is or has been. The emotional and physical demands of caring for older adults are often overlooked and underestimated and I am here to help support you during the ups and downs of this journey. By providing therapy for caregivers who are working through the complexity of their caregiving role, I can help them maintain their sense of self-worth, integrity, and identity.

I work with clients on developing helpful coping strategies but, through years of clinical training and experience, I have come to understand that powerful, long-lasting change comes from the regular practice of putting one’s thoughts and feelings into words, at one’s own pace, and in the context of a professional, therapeutic relationship .
I am an experienced clinician of approximately 20 years, with a private practice solely dedicated to work with TEENS, COLLEGE-AGE clients, and YOUNG ADULTS. Not only are these the age groups to which I am most drawn, I find that narrowing services to specific populations allows me to truly focus on and understand the unique needs and challenges of these groups. My style is described as warm, friendly and down-to-earth and I have had a lot of experience and success supporting hesitant and/or first-time clients in counseling/therapy.

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.

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 Watertown relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Watertown.
