You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

I believe life is a journey and we are all looking for something; happiness, peace of mind, fulfillment, growth. I think of myself as the guide on your journey, but I believe that you have the power, the wisdom, and the strength to find your own way to get where you want to go. Thoreau said, "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, and live the life you have imagined in quiet hours." It is my intention to help you imagine the life you want and to make the necessary changes you need to pursue your dreams.

You: "Enough is enough". You're ready for personal change. And now it's time to choose a therapist who is a good fit for you. Rapport is key in therapy. You need to be able to be quite open with how you think and feel. I may be a good fit for you if you are looking for these qualities: warmth, good listener, nonjudgmental, someone you feel you can trust and someone who empowers you to make your own decisions by asking key questions.

I see therapy as a collaboration between you, the patient, and me, the clinician with years of experience helping people achieve their goals. My style is active, exploring patterns developed in childhood which become obstacles to our happiness as adults. I integrate theories such as narrative therapy, where we examine and challenge the different stories we hold that lead to particular feelings, and also mindfulness, which helps us see clearly, into my work. Coping tendencies such as avoidance due to severe anxiety, eating disorders, depressive isolation, impulsive reactivity, can be transformed into healthy patterns with therapy.

I've been a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC), and a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) for almost twenty years. I work with individuals, couples, and families out of the basement office of my home in Arlington, MA. My most basic therapeutic approach is that everyone is born good and whole. But, life happens and it sends us difficulties that we can’t always understand. These difficulties can happen as children, adolescents, adults, in school, home, work, and in our marriages. Sometimes these problematic life experiences can affect our core beliefs negatively and/or overwhelm our abilities to cope.

I love helping clients who feel stuck with anxiety, depression, or trauma become “unstuck.” In my therapy space, I strive to create a supportive environment for people to explore their emotions – and the experiences that shaped those emotions. With individuals, couples, and families, I work collaboratively to understand how previous dynamics, especially with families of origin, contribute to their current thoughts and coping skills. When clients understand how their past relationships influence their current selves, they are better able to build new futures, with greater self-acceptance, growth, new skills, and overall happiness.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. West Somerville Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert.
