My approach is largely psychodynamic, though I incorporate some cognitive-behavioral techniques depending on the nature of the problem at hand.
My practice is devoted to helping people overcome challenges and live with a greater sense of personal agency. The process requires an openness to examining habitual patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior that - while once adaptive - may now be limiting growth, hindering relationships, and causing anxiety or depression. My approach is active and engaged. In addition to providing individual therapy, I also specialize in working with couples and leading groups.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Cambridge, 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.
