Change is hard. People often seek psychotherapy around change. They want to change. People in their life want them to change. Or some life change is affecting them in a meaningful way. Often, it's a combination. By working together I can help you in this challenge. I frequently work with adolescents and adults struggling with addiction in themselves or in their families. Many of my patients are addressing anxiety, depression, questions or challenges regarding their sexual orientation, infertility, life transitions, traumatic experiences or eating disorders and other compulsive behaviors. A lot of my patients are college or graduate students.

In my private practice, I complete neuropsychological evaluations. I am not currently accepting therapy patients. Children and adolescents are faced with many more challenges and demands than ever before, both at school and in their community. This requires a solid understanding of what makes them who they are and how to best support them across their development. I aim to help families understand their child's unique strengths and weaknesses and to empower them to make positive change to influence their academic and social functioning.

Resiliency, or grit, is an inherent quality. However, with transition comes stress, worry, and doubt. With timely and proper consultation, well-guided suggestions are often the simplest way to make quick and easy progress towards personal or professional change. Recovery from the occurrences of life is a process of study and practice. Learning and strategizing for health requires teamwork and vision. Supporting you to restore grit, develop skills, understand clinical interventions and build personalized strategies for wellness is my expertise and passion.

I believe that therapy is a journey towards growth and change. Over the past thirty years, I've had the honor of sharing this journey with adults of all ages, as well as adolescents and children. In the beginning, I often help people with an immediate problem or crisis. My personal style is warm, supportive and interactive. I draw from cognitive behavioral techniques, which stress concrete, behavioral change. Gradually, I create a safe space where we can establish a trusting relationship. People begin to identify the patterns they want to change. They replace old behaviors with new ones.

Therapy is the hard work of becoming awake to, and accepting of, what is real in ourselves and in life. Only when awake and living within the bounds of reality can we be loved, loving, healthy and happy. Addiction, depression, anxiety are among the experiences that can interfere with our experience of a healthy, joyful life. I feel priveledged to assist and accompany brave individuals on this journey of learning to change what we can, and stop fighting what we cannot. My therapy work combines traditional psychodynamic and cognitive approaches with Buddhist psychology and mindfulness practices.

A DIFFERENT VIEW. Natick/Framingham. I believe therapy is a joint venture. It takes both of us to create expertise about your unique psychology and spirit, and explore how that self-knowledge calls you. I am typically very active with you, suggesting interventions, offering ideas, giving "homework" between sessions. I'm experienced with depression, anxiety, trauma, post-trauma, sexuality, loss, and the search for meaning in life. These days, I see myself not so much as a psychotherapist, but as a teacher in Eastern Philosophies, especially the Tao (see below). I may refer out if I think the clinical picture calls for a different therapy.
