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.

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.

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.

It seems like you have tried everything and nothing seems to work or isn't long lasting. Young adulthood can be difficult; their personalities change and you fear that they might not overcome their challenges. Not only do I work with teens, but also adults who are experiencing life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and family issues. It can be nerve-racking to reach out to a counselor because you want to ensure you find someone who you can truly connect with.
