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 am looking to work with people who are dissatisfied with how something is going in their life, and motivated to make changes in order for their lives to improve. Besides listening and problem solving, I teach specific techniques designed to be applied as you go throughout your week, knowing that one hour a week together is a very short time. It is up to you to implement these strategies in order to reach your goals. If you're not quite there, we'll work together to figure out what's holding you back.

When we're working together, you'll feel some challenge, but you'll also have my support while your life's improving. I'm inquisitive, thoughtful and thought-provoking; my clients often tease me about silly metaphors (see the pizza allegory on my website). All our work is personalized for you. As we work, we'll review and tweak together, so your therapy is both more satisfying and more effective.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 02144, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 02144 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
