I have been in private practice in Westfield since 1995 with an emphasis on adolescents and adults in need of help coping with life's stressors. These stressors include, but are certainly not limited to depression and anxiety, developmental issues,school anxiety and school refusal, women's issues, parenting difficulties and social issues to name a few. Women in particular often cope with a great deal of stress related to work, family,loss and from time to time, serious illness. These strains can become overwhelming and coping may become difficult and sometimes impossible to do alone.

I believe that psychotherapy and coaching are gifts you give yourself. For the past 20 years, I have helped many competent, well-educated men and women whose lives, while "good on paper," are unsatisfying. They feel empty despite successes and have difficulties maintaining healthy relationships with loved ones. My clients feel stuck in their lives and want to make productive changes. I help them examine the ways they repeat the patterns which only lead us to disappointment. I can help you identify these roadblocks to happiness and guide you to create the life you want and deserve.

Welcome! My belief in the healing potential of psychotherapy is grounded in the decades of research on attachment, trauma and the body, and relational neuroscience. Our early relationships and experiences, including trauma, form the lens through which we experience our day-to-day lives. By understanding distressing patterns in our here-and-now functioning as remnants of protective and adaptive functioning in early life, we can move towards change from a place of self-compassion and deep understanding.

Truth is essential to our mental integrity. Full access to the "truths" embedded in our personal stories and the emotions, beliefs and healthy impulses they engender make us "whole". They form the basis of our identity, resilience, self-worth; our very well being. The problem: our "truths" sometimes appear overwhelmingly painful, disheartening and/or terrifying, particularly if safe/trustworthy people haven't been available to help. In order to cope, real feelings are buried, "looking good" facades created and the past (consciously) ignored. Unfortunately, dissociating these truths creates a life that lacks choice and is instead stubbornly ruled by the past.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Westfield, 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 Westfield are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Westfield. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Westfield
