It takes courage to seek out therapy. I work collaboratively with people who are feeling overwhelmed, experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, or having difficulty in their personal or work relationships. I help individuals and couples understand the nature of their concerns and free themselves of negative beliefs and extreme emotions in order to create positive change in their lives. Our work will help you develop new insights, skills, and solutions that can lead to more meaningful communication, conflict resolution, and healthier relationships. Through curiosity, self-understanding, confidence, and compassion, we have the ability to heal ourselves, make positive choices and feel more connected with others.

Sometimes we all need a little perspective. Sometimes when individuals feel overwhelmed by pain, confusion, sadness, & anxiety, it feels impossible or improbable for things to get any worse, much less any better. Do you feel stuck, suffocated, or always just a little bit behind? It's so easy to feel like who and where we want to be is an unattainable pipe dream. Sometimes gaining outside perspective & validation is what you need to realize that you CAN connect the dots between where you are and where you want to be going, as well as come to an understanding of who you are at your very core, and to like the person you find there!

My clients don't come to therapy to hear someone nod, parrot back, and agree with everything they say...that's not worth their time or money. They want real help. They want to know "what to do" and "how to fix it." They struggle with depression, severe anxiety, relationship problems, trauma, suicidal thoughts, parenting issues, and other painful situations, so they are looking for a true expert. One that they can actually talk to. I've been a therapist for about 15 years in the south (Nashville, Chattanooga, and Atlanta) and am excited to bring some of our brand of help to Boston.

WELCOME.What brings someone to therapy is always deeply personal and deeply compelling. Such an experience is unique, and complex. Thus to fully acknowledge, validate, and to understand requires skillful integration of listening, empathy, theoretical knowledge, clinical acumen, compassion and, most of all, willingness to fully engage in the process. I am a seasoned clinician well-versed in a variety of therapeutic approaches. This offers each person I work with an approach that is individually tailored to your unique goals, needs, and challenges. Inherent in this process is open dialogue so we maximize the efficacy of our work together.

Most of us do the best we can with the resources we have. Sometimes we think no one understands our worries & fears. If open to it, we want to work with a therapist when our usual ways of relating aren't helping & we feel stuck, anxious, angry or depressed. Therapy often helps provide insight into our strengths & internal resources we already have to help navigate challenging times. In sessions, I focus on working with clients to unlock this strength to steer their lives in the direction they want. I bring curiosity, warmth, respect, & empathy to my sessions.

I believe psychotherapy is pursuing your inner truth. While most people seek counseling to ameliorate painful personal or interpersonal symptoms, the solution is not as simple as deciding to be different tomorrow. We need to understand when and why our self-destructive ways began. We need to see how we have created patterns and habits that maintain our personal suffering. Our mind is designed to keep those important, but uncomfortable, insights out of view. Once we can find the courage and strength to truly face our whole reality, we can begin the joyful process of designing an authentic lifestyle which brings true happiness.

Everyone has the capacity to reach full potential. When this occurs, one experiences an improved sense of self which creates freedom to make decisions that create and sustain meaningful experience in relationships and work. Life can actually feel like it's starting anew. More often than not, answers to repetitive patterns in unfulfilling relationships and negative feelings about the self can be traced to the past. Once goals have been identified, I work with clients in a supportive and collaborative way so that a constructive and meaningful understanding of one's life, with improved ways of coping, can occur now.

People often don’t believe in therapy because they don’t believe they can change. Some people imagine their “ideal” self and feel that they are too far behind or too unstable to become that person. I do this work because I believe in people and I know they can change. My purpose as a therapist is to meet you wherever you are in your journey and create a safe, empowering space where we can work together as a team to move you closer toward your personal goals. This may mean working through past trauma, finding ways to get out of a toxic situation, or perhaps it just means helping you get out of your own way.
