Whether working with children, teens, adults, or families, I believe that most problems -and their solutions- are best understood in the context of relationships. I create a space where people can develop curiosity about thoughts, beliefs, and ways of interacting that feel constraining and move toward more preferred ways of being.

While we are fully aware of what is going on in the conscious mind, we have no idea of what information is stored in the unconscious mind. For the most part, the source of most of our problems is stored in the unconscious. I help patients verbalize and get in touch with their unconscious which will lead to a successful treatment. I Work with adults who have been diagnosed with a psychotic mental disorder; patients who are highly functional; however under psychotic medications.

The pain we feel is individual. Each may live with unfortunate experiences, face stressful situations, or suffer conflicts with partners and within themselves. If we ignore them, we may find ourselves unable to reach the goals we pursue and, instead, only feeling dissatisfied, bitter, or being stuck. Our work together will uncover and conquer the obstacles so that the pleasure can be felt and the goal that has been longed for can be fulfilled.

I find that successful psychotherapy usually begins by helping you to clearly envision what you want for yourself. In particular, how do you want your life to be? I help you think through your hopes for your self and identify factors that may interfere with your aspirations for you. From there, we will think through strategies and work through barriers as you seek to achieve your vision of how you want to feel, to relate to others, to work, to study or learn. Each person is entirely unique, and thus, my approach to help you live the life you want to live will be adapted to your unique self.

My approach is collaborative, empathic, and interactive, creating an environment in which to help you better understand, relate to, and address the challenges you are experiencing.

The human mind is amazing. At every moment, we are experiencing a complicated mix of emotions, thoughts, sensations, and memories. We notice some of these, but most we do not. Emotions, in particular, are often perceived only vaguely, or they can seem mysterious, foreign, or out of our control. Contemporary neuropsychologists have found that the decisions that we make are much more influenced by emotions, some of which are out of our awareness, than they are by our rational thoughts.

“I once heard a child who was afraid of the darkness call out: "Auntie, talk to me, I’m frightened.’ ‘But what good will that do? You can’t see me;’ to which the child replied: ‘If someone talks, it gets lighter.”(Sigmund Freud) I believe that through talk therapy, we can overcome whatever lies at the root of the problem. Together, we will try to better understand what has brought you to the consulting room, whether that be relationship problems, social anxiety, depression, trauma, self doubt or a specific issue you would like to address.

The demands of school, work, family and other relationships can be overwhelming for people of all ages. Societal pressures may add to our stress. We all need support as we navigate the different stages of our lives. We can get stuck, feel very low, or become increasingly anxious along the way. Children and adolescents may express or cope with these difficult emotions with troubling behavior. Parents often feel helpless or lost trying to support their children. Individual and family psychotherapy can help us better understand and manage our emotions, increase our sense of worth and control, and live a more fulfilling life.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Brookline or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Brookline, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Brookline.
