My goal for therapy is to create a collaborative, compassionate and non-judgmental environment where you will be supported and also challenged to gain insight and develop different approaches to promote positive changes in your life.

Areas of specialty are depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief and trauma. My approach is strength-based, and I view psychological symptoms and distress from an individual as well as systemic perspective.

I believe there are many ways to bring about change, and work collaboratively with clients to identify the ways that will work best for them. My approach to therapy is integrative, incorporating relational, psychodynamic and strengths-based perspectives, as well as cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based interventions. I am committed to understanding clients within their cultural contexts, and pay close attention to the impact of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and, when relevant, religion on development and identity.

Coming in for therapy is a courageous and a self compassionate step in itself. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy and that each person is an expert in their own lives and issues. Sometimes, due to stress, anxiety and other factors out of our control, it can be difficult to see a clear picture of one’s life and see where it is heading. Most of us get stuck in living out patterns that aren't working for us anymore. I help my clients explore, identify and change those patterns to help them live a more fulfilling life. I use social justice perspectives, mindfulness, self compassion, CBT & psychodynamic thinking in my work.

Therapy is not one-size-fits all, so I encourage clients to discover their own path while building effective emotional tools to sustain long-term mind-body health and resilience. Narrative techniques may also be used to help shape a self-story that supports long-term resilience and an enduring sense of purpose and meaning in life.

I have advanced training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, and my work is influenced by psychoanalytic and trauma-informed approaches.
Often, a significant source of suffering lies in thoughts and feelings that exist outside of our awareness and have not yet been able to find full expression. Psychotherapy offers the unusual opportunity to be listened to deeply and to learn to listen to ourselves in new ways. Exploring and developing insight into your inner life can lead to change—feeling better about yourself, shifting patterns that have kept you stuck, and developing a greater sense of agency and fulfillment in your life.

My approach to psychotherapy is relational, client-centered and designed to meet the unique needs of each client. My work is heavily influenced by psychodynamic approaches and focuses on strengthening one's core sense of self to help shift responses to external stressors. I draw from the latest research in neuroscience and coping strategies to assist clients in using their innate capacity for self-regulation. When helpful, I integrate mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral strategies to reduce symptoms and make way for deeper and longer-lasting effects of therapy. My therapeutic approach is culturally sensitive and trauma-informed.

I work in a way that is collaborative, helping people to cope with immediate stressors in their lives and to change patterns of thinking and behavior that keep them stuck. These patterns may reflect adaptations to past experiences and may require exploring thoughts or feelings that have not yet been articulated.

I have advanced training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and the Maastricht approach to working with hearing voices and unusual beliefs.
Therapy can help you free up the “stuck” places in your life, the ways of relating to yourself and others that can feel self-defeating, limiting or out of your control. These ways can lead to distress that may come in many forms: anxiety, anger, emptiness, detachment. Yet these experiences are not only a source of suffering, they are also a message that speaks to desires, passions, conflicts, and pain. Together we work to understand all this and place it in the context of where you come from and the world you live in now.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in West Cambridge, 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.
