I believe first and foremost in the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I understand that beginning the work of psychotherapy can be a challenging and sometimes scary thing. Finding a therapist with whom you can build a trusting relationship is essential to the success of your treatment. Through honest and warm communication I create an environment where clients can feel supported and cared for throughout our work together. My specialties include anxiety disorders, trauma and related disorders, depression and mood disorders, and sports performance and injury recovery. I work with adults 18-year-old and older.

Currently seeing clients over Zoom. When face to face are permitted I will see people on Newbury St. I specialize in supporting men and fathers as they strive to become the best version of themselves. I tend to work with a lot of new fathers who happen to be former athletes. My background as a former high school and college athlete seems to serve our connection. My training as a therapist with a specialty in parenting, anger management and spiritual issues also informs how I work. The men who come see me want to channel their aggression in a healthier way and are incredibly self reliant and often have a hard time asking for help.

There are times in our lives when we feel sad, depressed, confused, anxious and despite our best efforts at giving ourselves rational advice, we still don't feel better. In therapy, we work towards building a different way of thinking about ourselves and our problems. Not only will we relieve the symptoms but also achieve personal growth, acceptance of ourselves and most importantly, a liberating feeling of being understood. Every individual is unique and will have different needs and desired outcomes for their therapeutic process. With that in mind, whatever each specific client is seeking will be respected and worked towards.

Imagine actually enjoying therapy. Imagine looking forward to therapy each week because your therapist "gets" you and works with you in a down-to-earth way to address your goals. Since therapy is an intense process that tackles intense issues, I believe it should also include authenticity, humor, and flexibility. I focus my Cambridge practice on adolescents, college students, and young adults in their 20s and 30s. I am energetic, creative, and hands-on and will work with you (and your child, if applicable) to design a personalized approach to address your specific goals.

I am solely offering sessions via video until further notice. I practice individual psychotherapy with adults, and have experience working with clients from a variety of backgrounds. Though I am comfortable working on a wide range of problems, I specialize in issues related to low self-esteem, depression/ hopelessness, complex trauma, and stress in social/ romantic/ family relationships. Suffering from anxiety and depression can be a very isolating experience, but it doesn't have to be. Therapy is a place where growth and healing can occur; where what once felt terrible can become manageable.

Life is challenging and beautiful, and so confusing. We strive toward meaning and connection. Yet, often we feel stuck as we struggle to overcome internal and external barriers to the life we want to lead. Therapy can provide a safe environment to work through difficulties, cope with intense feelings, and move toward positive change. In my approach to counseling, you will find warm support, as well as encouragement to look inward and take action at your own pace. I will listen to you carefully, and if needed, respectfully challenge you to take responsibility for your life, while letting go of self-blame.
