My approach to therapy centers on building a trusting relationship with the individuals I work with. I recognize that entering in to therapy can be a vulnerable and challenging experience – to speak to a stranger about your thoughts, feelings, fears, and dreams. First and foremost, I strive to create a space that feels grounding, safe, and compassionate. From this space is where I believe individuals can tap in to their inner wisdom, challenge themselves, explore their depth of mind and achieve a greater sense of understanding and peace.

During my long career, I have addressed almost every kind of problem, but have specialized in the areas of depression, grief and loss, anxiety, relationship difficulties, trauma, medical illness.
As a psychotherapist with over forty years of experience, I feel I bring wisdom, objectivity, and compassion to the process of therapy. My approach (often insight-oriented or cognitive-behavioral) is guided by the client's goals and needs. I have had much success in working with individuals who are stuck, indecisive, or scared. I have also been helpful to those people who tend towards perfectionism. I would stress the importance of trust in the therapeutic relationship and see that as a catalyst to changing behavior.

In a working therapy relationship, issues have a safe place to be explored, supported, encouraged and new goals achieved.
I work with individuals, couples and families. The decision to enter therapy is a significant decision, and finding someone you feel comfortable working with is important. Most often, my clients have pursued therapy when personal efforts were not bringing them the success they wanted. My style is described as caring and supportive, while offering direct and active tools to bring you to your goals.

I work with people facing depression, anxiety, grief, and relationship difficulties.
Everyone I see for the first time simply wants to feel better. They are tired of being alone with their burdens and need help with the problems they are facing. Individuals want to be truly known and heard. I am an active and curious listener and I hope to help people to become more curious about themselves. I think of the first visit as a consultation. It is a time to share what you need help with and to see whether further work could be useful. As a therapist with 35 years of experience, I feel grateful to still love my work.

My personal interest focuses on anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, and adoption.
Psychotherapy has always been for those who are ready to experience healing. Along with alleviating symptoms, my approach is most effective for individuals who are seeking a deeper understanding of underlying causes and who strive for personal growth. Together, we explore the root of current feelings that led things astray. We can gain insight into self-awareness, understand our behavioral patterns, build resilience, and develop better coping mechanisms. Doing so empowers us to reach emotional maturity and enable more fulfilling relationships.

We all have times when our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, or relationships become locked in unhelpful patterns that can be very hard to change. As a clinical psychologist, I work collaboratively and actively with people to better understand how and why they became stuck. My clients find that increased awareness of themselves gained within a supportive relationship frees them to have new experiences. I work well with people who have a desire to explore themselves in order to address issues affecting their work, relationships, and happiness.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Brookline relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Brookline.
