I have been working for over 20 years with adolescents and young adults who struggle with obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety and mood disorders. This is a challenging developmental stage during which time psychotherapy can be an effective tool. Additionally, I was a professional dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet Company. I currently work with dancers and their families, who are contending with the pressures of taking on a competitive physical, emotional and artistic pursuit. **Currently (as of 5/1/2021), I am NOT accepting new clients.**

Some of the people I work with suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), a painful and often debilitating disorder that overlaps with OCD.
I engage with people in the here and now to alleviate distressing symptoms, patterns of thinking and interacting that contribute to a feeling of "stuckness." Working collaboratively, we examine these dynamics through the lense of your own personal history, and as they emerge in the therapy between therapist and patient. Often, self-defeating internal narratives and behaviors are learned in childhood and protect against larger anxieties. Together, we work to figure out what still serves you and what doesn't, with a goal of increasing self-awareness, improving relationships and fostering an overall sense of aliveness.

One important point regarding my practice that may differ from other OCD Treatment in the area is this.
As a Clinician with over two decades of experience working in Psychiatry at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, I have also been in Private Practice as a Therapist specializing in the assessment and treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Depression and Stress/Loss of Chronic Illness. Because I found there were few if any professionally led groups for OCD Sufferers, I developed an active Group Program for Adults with OCD. My style is warm and direct with a desire to work together to build on your strengths using Cognitive Behavioral Treatment/Exposure & Response Prevention and Psychotherapy. OCD Family Guidance also.

With any and all presenting concerns, I provide a warm, non-judgmental environment. I have an integrative approach, with a particular focus on motivational enhancement, insight oriented exploration of past experiences, and when appropriate, specific tools and coping strategies. I use a number of research backed cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) protocols, which are proven to be effective in treating anxiety and depression. However, I am careful to use these methods in the context of a client centered and welcoming environment which accounts for an individual's particular needs, experiences, and readiness to change.

Welcome! Meaningful change and lasting healing happen through the co-creation of safe therapeutic spaces. Together, we can develop your capacity not only to feel better, but to be healthier. Understanding yourself is a powerful source of transformation and development. However, insight alone is not always enough to create psychological healing. I work with people to generate deep insight but also to create a new way of being and feeling in the world. For these purposes, I often incorporate both experiential and mind/brain/body therapies.
