I have practiced clinical psychology for 35 years. I love the process of helping people explore, understand and work through the deepest problems, conflicts and struggles of their lives and relationships. We all struggle: it is the human condition! Every person's life experiences are unique and deeply personal, as are the meanings attached to those experiences. For me the complexities and subtleties of each person's narrative are endlessly varied and fascinating, worthy of the deepest attention and respect. Not many are as privileged in their work as I am!

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.

Sometimes we get caught up in who we think we should be or how we think we should act. This makes it hard to tune in to which parts of ourselves we want to nourish. I invite clients both young and old to take an active role in learning ways to increase meaning and enjoyment in their lives. I work with adolescents, adults, and parents struggling with issues of depression and anxiety, sexuality, and gender identity. Through drawing, storytelling and play, I help kids put their feelings into words and learn effective ways to connect with others. I recognize and celebrate neurodiversity as well as expansive gender expression.

A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Wellesley or for a Wellesley play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Wellesley are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Wellesley. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Wellesley
