**THE CBT SPECIALIST** Finding a therapist is a daunting task. While I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety-related disorders and depression, I also incorporate elements of Mindfulness, Problem-Solving, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Gottman couples theory. In addition, I have been trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) by the EMDR Institute. EMDR can provide an effective treatment synergy with CBT, especially for patients with trauma histories. My goal is to help you feel more hopeful, be happier, and be more in control of your life.

Struggling with life transitions, creative ruts, and relationships are difficult in any situation but especially so if you do not follow the heteronormative path. It can be difficult to open up to someone when you are not certain that they understand Queer and Alternative relationship structures. I use a straight forward and individualized approach with each client to build a therapeutic relationship based on specific goals. I focus my work around issues regarding LGBTQ+, sexuality, non-binary and transgender, complex relationships, power dynamics, sexual health, BDSM/Kink, and other alternative dynamics.

A crisis or stressor can look and feel different to each person. The first step is to assess the situation, which we will do together. The next step is to de-escalate from the any acute stress or crisis. I like to use play, creative expression, coping skills, mindfulness/meditation, and distress tolerance techniques with people in crisis. Once we learn how to best manage the immediate discomfort and stress, we can move to resolving the root of the issue. This may lie in larger education, family, medical, performance, and environmental causes.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Boston, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Boston are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Boston

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Boston you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Boston and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Boston or family therapy in Boston.
