I work with children, adolescent and adults in individual and family therapy.
Ready to find peace with specific problems you face or make changes that will alter how you feel about yourself, your life and your relationships? Therapy involves a large commitment of time, money and energy, so finding a therapist you match well with is essential. My approach is very interactive, supportive and engaged. My first goal is to help you shed light on issues you may be struggling with. Next, we actively work to make expedient changes that will qualitatively change the way you feel on a daily basis with yourself and in your relationships.

When people feel better, they do better.  This is true for children, adults and couples.  And in families, when one person is doing better, everyone is better. You may be feeling overwhelmed or dissatisfied at home, school, work, or in an important relationship. You may be feeling like your life is not going how you had hoped or expected. Your child or teen may be struggling at home or school.  If you're a parent supporting a kid or partner who is struggling, you probably feel lonely, frustrated and discouraged. These are some of the difficulties that bring people to my office.

I am an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, and for 17 years I was the Director of Child/ Adolescent Inpatient Psychology at Cambridge Health Alliance.
Children and adults alike confront challenges to healthy functioning and personal fulfillment. I aim to create an empathic connection with my clients, enabling them to better understand their emotions and habitual ways of coping with challenges, and to change the patterns of thought and behavior that interfere with reaching their goals and potential. Whether using play therapy with children or talk therapy with adults, I take an active approach to help clients achieve their goals and resolve their problems. When treating children, I work closely with parents, providing careful guidance about how to help their child develop and thrive.

If you are interested in helping your child or adolescent improve their academic and social emotional functioning, have an adolescent who is experiencing Anxiety, or would like an intellectual or neuropsychological evaluation that will help you understand your child's learning and social emotional profile, I would be happy to schedule an appointment.
For more than 20 years, I have enjoyed helping children, adolescents and young adults overcome their difficulties while also focusing on developing their many strengths. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that is solution focused and clinically proven to be the most effective treatment for children and adolescents who are struggling with Anxiety, Depression, and social difficulties. I have seen an enormous increase in Anxiety and over dependence on social media, vaping, and marijuana use as coping mechanisms and have developed an expertise in treating adolescents who struggle with these issues.

My practice also includes private supervision to other therapists in child, adolescent and adult therapy.
I have been in practice for 25 years and work in my private, comfortable home office. People find me easy to talk to and often say I have the right balance between empathy and challenging them when necessary. People come to therapy because they are having difficulties handling their emotions in their work (or school) and personal relationships. As an Adult and Child Psychoanalyst, I have considerable experience working with a wide range of people from 3 years old and up to mature adulthood. I particularly like working with preschoolers, under-achieving "gifted" children, seemingly "lost" adolescents, adults and Seniors dealing with aging and retirement.

TELEHEALTH ONLY AT THIS TIME. Beginning therapy takes bravery. If anxiety, moodiness or depression won’t let go; or if you feel trapped by patterns that you cannot break, it is a signal to seek care. I would be honored to welcome you to my practice. If you’re a teenager whose worries or moods have become overwhelming, you aren’t alone. As adults we may find ourselves stuck or overwhelmed. Perhaps life is changing, whether by design or as an intrusion to a life humming along. Perhaps you are struggling with questions of meaning and purpose. When your ability to engage in life has diminished, seeking help makes sense.

Over the years as a therapist, I have found that the common theme amongst my clients is not their diagnosis or their problems but their deep desire for Calmness, Clarity & Connection. They seek therapy because something is not right in their lives and they want to find a better way. The ingredients to healing are found in these three elements. Whether it is through individual therapy, teen support/skill building, The c3 Method or even within the audience of my public speaking events, my clients engage in a process that leads them away from their struggles to a place of Calmness, Clarity and Connection. ​

I graduated from U Mass Amherst with a PhD in Clinical Psychology in 1998 and, since then, had a rich and varied career as psychotherapist, clinical and organizational consultant and director of adolescent and child programs.
When I meet my clients for the first time, we may decide to seek solutions to ADHD, OCD, anxiety or depression. Parents may be looking for a resolution to a child's school under-achievement, home conflict or social disconnection. In each situation, my belief is that therapy supports skill development and fosters a sense of balance, or equanimity.

You smile and say “I’m fine” but it's not true. You don’t necessarily know what’s wrong so sometimes you even convince yourself you're OK. You feel overwhelmed trying to balance your responsibilities and meet the expectations of everyone around you. You feel depressed and anxious. You’ve learned to cope by scrolling on your phone and self-medicating. You want to learn healthier coping skills. You want to talk to someone who only has YOU in mind. You hear people talk about going to therapy and you think it‘s a good idea but you don’t know where to start. Seeking help, whether for yourself or your teen , can be an exhausting task.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Wellesley and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
