The decision to enter psychotherapy is often a deeply personal one, and even taking steps toward it can require a great deal of insight and strength. Choosing a therapist is an important part of the process, as research has consistently shown that the therapeutic relationship between patient and therapist is the most important predictor of positive outcomes.
I consider it a privilege to facilitate patients’ realization of their therapeutic goals using evidence-based treatments. In my Brookline practice, I provide my patients with a comfortable and empathic environment in which to engage in therapy. Many benefit from psychotherapy alone. When indicated, I offer integrated psychotherapy and medication treatment. Together, we determine the best treatment plan for you.

The relationship we have with eating and our bodies is so so personal. And like other relationships, these relationships can become dysfunctional. And when they do, we can feel shame, alone and lost. It is so important that you have a safe, authentic, empathic, knowledgeable space to share, learn, recover and set yourself free from the challenges of a difficult relationship with eating, food and or your body. I truly understand, having traveled this road myself. Together we can find peace of mind, body and spirit--and recovery.

I can help you change your relationship with your partner, your family, a friend, or yourself! People are often challenged by difficult emotions or challenging relationships. Instead of facing this task head-on, you may distract yourself with unhealthy habits like over-drinking, improper eating, excessive social media or video game playing. While these techniques may help in the moment, they can make the problem worse. If you are avoiding the challenge, you will not find the peace!
Wouldn't it be nice if you could say: "I have relationships that make me happy; I am present in my life and the lives of others; I treat myself with compassion; I have healthy hobbies; I find my work meaningful, and I feel satisfied with my life."
I use a variety of approaches and I will tailor our work to each individual. Techniques include CBT, EFT and family therapy. My specialties include work-life balance, couples counseling and men’s issues, but I am well-versed in helping with anxiety, depression, adjusting to a life change, and other issues. If you are ready to jump in, call or email today!

I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I work with adults and older teens on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and stress. People who call me are often feeling overwhelmed or distressed. Many are curious about how therapy could help them. I have extensive experience with a number of different approaches to help you feel better.
I have been seeing clients for many years. I have developed expertise in treating anxiety, depression, and addressing relationship difficulties, parenting, and life stress. I draw from a variety of approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and interpersonal therapy (IPT), which focuses on relationships.
Some people are looking to learn skills and coping techniques. Some are looking to understand familiar patterns that are getting in their way. I want therapy to be helpful and targeted to your needs. I can address the here and now--what is on your plate today? What is coming up for you this week? We can focus on these issues to help you manage and feel supported. I also work with people on issues that have been present for some time. We can work to better understand these patterns so that they no longer interfere with things you want in life.
After we have an initial phone conversation, we will meet so that you can tell me about yourself. During our first meeting, I will listen closely to your story--attending to both your difficulties and your strengths and capacities. We will likely meet another time and then together, we will make a plan that best addresses your needs. It is important to me that I offer an environment that feels supportive, safe, and helpful.

I value creating a safe space where you are able to talk openly and explore your concerns and issues. It’s important that you feel understood, and together we can cultivate insight and compassion towards yourself and your concerns.

Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to take on your life and put your past in your past to most powerfully create yourself and your future. The opportunity to connect and authentically communicate and explore one's life and oneself can be challenging, exciting, eye opening, and life changing. I hope to provide a space for this exploration and creation. I take an integrated approach, combining psychotherapy and medication (when indicated). Together with the patient I look to discover new ways of being with you.

I try to be really respectful of people. It’s no small thing to come into therapy, nobody ever comes into therapy on their best day, its often their worst. I really try to keep that in mind. I really try to meet people where they’re at. I want to help people get the most out of their lives.

Everyone needs a safe place to be themselves. This becomes even more important if you are struggling in your life and looking to heal and grow. My priority with everyone I meet is to first hear you, see you, and understand. If you are struggling with not feeling like yourself, feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed, angry, lost, confused, manic, or depressed coming to a place where you can bring all that you feel can be a life-altering experience. In my practice, being kind, accepting and compassionate come first. From there I guide a session to support you to understand yourself better and build skills. Skill building may include learning meditation and mindfulness, body-based coping skills, or mindfulness based cognitive behavioral exercises. Much of human communication and self-understanding is done at the body level. When we pay attention to the body or use music, images, clay or colors we can garner a deeper understanding of yourself, your needs and your strengths.

I feel that finding the right therapist is so important to the quality of treatment and achieving success for set goals. I believe that it is hard to take the first step to come to therapy and it is therefore even more important to find someone you can connect to and feel comfortable with. My mission for all of my clients is to partner with them to achieve their goals and to empower them to obtain and maintain the skills in their own lives so that they eventually come to therapy to check in rather than to confront a crisis.

Society is filled with messages about how our lives should look and feel, and when we fall short we often blame ourselves, leading to sadness and despair. I work with clients to uncover their own strengths, and to regain power over the areas of life that feel overwhelming or out of control. My approach to treatment is evidence-based while being affirming and non-stigmatizing. I work with clients to uncover their own strengths, and to regain power over the areas of life that feel overwhelming or out of control. My energy is warm and friendly, and past clients have appreciated the chance to explore difficult content in a non-judgmental environment.
