You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

At the heart of my practice, is a strong appreciation for the importance of developing a safe, trusting, and collaborative therapeutic relationship.

Do you often find yourself stuck in your head? Too caught up in thinking about the past or the "what ifs" of the future? You feel like you've been trying to hold it together, but it's all becoming too much. You feel like you are doing things wrong, you feel anxious, lonely, or just stuck in a rut. You scroll past other people's lives on social media and it seems like they are coping with everything better than you. Maybe that glass or two of wine or the marijuana that helped you unwind or relax are no longer feeling like solutions, but something you might need to change. It's time to look at what is getting in the way!

Are you experiencing a transition in your life--in a relationship, career, education, or life stage such as early adulthood or midlife? Are you overwhelmed and uncertain, feeling depressed, anxious, grief-stricken, resentful, conflicted, or confused? Change of all types stirs up unsettling feelings, including unresolved issues, memories and traumas. You might feel like you're always in "crisis-mode." When your feelings overwhelm you, they cloud your judgment and vision. Rather than being at their mercy, you can learn to allow your feelings to guide you, no matter how difficult the challenges you face.

Please note I am not accepting clients at this time. It takes a lot of courage to enter into therapy as it means acknowledging that something isn't working in your life. Everyone who comes into therapy is a unique individual whose problems are different eventhough they may fall under the same category,e.g."depressed." Sometimes people enter into therapy with specific problems while for others there is a need to understand old, negative patterns of behaviors.

I work with a wide variety of people at various stages of change. I’ve been part of the Harvard Medical School system for the past 6 years, and currently teach and supervise HMS trainees. I am trained primarily in psychodynamic therapy, though principles/interventions from other paradigms inform my work as well. Ultimately, the nature of therapy depends on the patient, what they are up against, and their goals. For this reason, the course of therapy is difficult to describe. But generally speaking, I would be a good fit for someone looking to understand and change established patterns, and to find relief from associated symptoms.

Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in 02144 and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
