Some concerns that bring people to me are their experience of loneliness, depression, and anxiety; feelings of worry, emptiness, and sadness; a search for connection and meaning in relationships and work; life transitions; perfectionism; self-doubt; relationship difficulties; divorce; searching for life direction and a sense of purpose; loss and grief; and exploration of identity. I work with people through collaborative, interactive conversation to help them gain insight, to develop strategies to approach their life challenges, and to feel known and understood. People describe me as empathic, genuine, and with a sense of humor.

When searching for a therapist, either for yourself or for your child, the process can be confusing and frustrating. Finding the right person may be challenging, but it will be worth the effort to find someone you are comfortable with. Ideally therapy will allow you to tell your story and get to the heart of the problems you have been facing. You will be able to build on the knowledge and strengths you already have and ultimately gain the perspective to move through your challenges.

In the past few years, I have integrated neurofeedback into my practice, and integrate it with my expertise in several therapies that help resolve even longstanding difficulties. My experience has shown that healing and change truly are possible!

My first priority as your therapist is to provide an environment in which you can speak freely about your concerns while I listen and reflect back to you in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. You may need new coping skills, new perspectives or a way to heal beyond old difficulties that remain unresolved. I will help you clarify what your intentions are and help you to be more compassionate with yourself during the process. One of the goals is to be more content and more at peace with yourself and in your relationships with others.

Hello and welcome. It is never easy making the choice to begin therapy. Confiding in someone you don't know takes a lot of courage. With so many professionals out there, it can feel daunting and overwhelming to try and find the right person. A person you feel comfortable with, a place where you feel respected, a space of trust and safety. When I meet with a new client, my priority is to make sure you feel safe, respected, and heard. By working together, you will realize you are not alone.

Psychotherapy involves a commitment and 'fit' between therapist and client. Respect for the individual, creating an atmosphere of easy communication, focusing on the presenting issue(s), and a problem-solving approach are all elements that I particularly value and work to create and maintain. At the present time, early 2021, I am not taking new patients. That may change later in 2021.

Sometimes we're not our "best selves." We change in ways we're not happy about, or, don't change in ways we'd like to. We feel too sad, disoriented, mad, anxious, numb, ashamed; we have one too many, too often. Job performance can suffer, relationships can wobble, getting to sleep (or out of bed) can become a chore. Life can fade in color, or, become too colorful. Together you and I can find the right flashlight for your dark corners, and a nonjudgmental space from which to address painful, sometimes scary and/or frustrating situations and feelings.

~NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS~ If there is one thing we can count on in life is change--expected or unexpected; wanted or unwanted. Perhaps it is a loss, a difficult transition, a new diagnosis, chronic pain, becoming a caregiver, parenting a child with a disability--it could be anything that significantly alters your life plans, your relationship, expectations, sense of self, and day-to-day functioning. People often experience depression, anxiety, relational tension, and feel overwhelmed when faced with a challenging life issue, whether it is short or long-term.

Counseling and therapy describe a relationship between two people for the sole purpose of helping one. My work centers on helping people become more effective in their lives and their multiple roles. Breakthroughs and revelations do happen, but they are far less common than most people think. The majority of therapy is, simply, hard work. Doing the work with someone you are comfortable with, whose only focus is on helping you, makes therapy a collaboration that most people find very helpful, often in unexpected ways.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 01720, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 01720 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 01720. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 01720

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 01720 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 01720 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 01720 or family therapy in 01720.
