I believe I am a capable general psychiatrist, but with 26 years of specialized practice and academic work in deafness and hearing loss, I feel I have specific things I can offer those patients who need them: an understanding of what it means for one's body to change or to be different from that of others; an appreciation for the layered complexity of experience, from biological (say, anxiety) to cultural (say, a culture's specific expectations for what should and shouldn't make one anxious); an appreciation of child psychiatric conditions that affect adults too—attention deficit, learning disability, autism spectrum; a special awareness of the difficulty of establishing oneself as an independent human being; and, an interest and expertise in unraveling complex diagnostic puzzles and their associated medication choices.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. My goal is to offer you the opportunity to ask questions and find out what it would be like to work with me so that you feel comfortable and assured. My work with clients is direct and straight forward and my approach is collaborative and focused on making manageable changes toward improved life satisfaction. My style is warm, accessible and tailored to your individual needs and goals.

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.

Therapy is a process and a process I believe in. I value authenticity, humor and human connection in my clinical work and believe that these are essential elements of healing. Through our conversations, we will explore, discover and process how your past can influence the present and future and hopefully deepen your understanding of the self and increase awareness of how you are and how you would like to be.
My clients inspire me. They are brave and real and they show up even when life gets hard. They want to get to know themselves in a deep and meaningful way and by doing that, they live the life they imagine. Some of my clients have experienced loss. Many times that means the death loss of a loved one but sometimes it means the loss of a meaningful relationship, or job, or identity. Some of my clients want to become more confident and feel empowered to live a life that is full to them. Other clients of mine have had childhoods that they are now recognizing have impacted their life and would like to look at those experiences.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and really value the relationship that we build together. I will be real with you in the room in the hopes that we can have an authentic conversation about what is really going on in your life. I will not be a blank slate but instead will ask you great questions, laugh with you, support you, and be honest with you.
If we decide to work together, you won’t just get a smile and nod therapist or a blank slate. You will get a real person in the room with you. Yes, a highly trained professional but more importantly, a human being who believes in empathy, resilience and the power of human connection. We will work together to create a treatment plan that works for you.

I hope to provide a safe space each week that allows you a break from the responsibilities and expectations of work, family, and friends to focus on yourself. In a day and age, where we are always accessible and an immediate response is generally expected from us majority of the time, the decision to actively make time to focus on your own needs deserves praise in itself. My hope is that by helping you prioritize yourself for just one hour each week, that the other 167 hours of your week will feel more useful…providing hope that tomorrow will be better than today.

Do you currently feel lost in your relationship? Has infidelity severed your connection, or have you stopped communicating the way you used to? Do you no longer feel like you understand each other, or are your fights becoming more intense and frequent? Did you answer yes to any of these questions? If so, I can help.
I am passionate about this work and as a result, have focused my entire practice on working with couples. I utilize a combination of evidenced based approaches (Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy – EFT) to help partners identify their negative cycles and navigate their relationship in a new way which leads to deeper connection and the ability to manage conflicts more effectively.
I would describe my style as direct, but compassionate. The truth is, therapy is work and a lot of that happens outside of the office. My expectation when working with a couple is that they will do what is required of them at home and not expect to simply put the effort in during the 90-minute session.
It is very important to remember when looking for a therapist that couples therapy is truly a different style than individual work. Unfortunately, many clinicians do not have the specialized training to know how to effectively work with couples. I truly believe more harm than good can be done when clinicians try to do couples therapy as if they are doing individual therapy with two people in the room. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of asking any therapist you speak with what specific training he/she has in working with couples. Most graduate programs do not focus on it, or in some cases, include it at all.
I offer 30-minute complimentary sessions for couples who are considering working with me in my office on the East Side of Providence. I think it is crucial that the chemistry is right between myself and BOTH partners. If it is not, therapy is unlikely to be successful. We will use this session to determine if I am a good fit for your needs and proceed from there.
For clients such as upper level executives and professional athletes who are looking for a more discreet, convenient option for couples therapy, I offer sessions in your home, at a premium. For clients interested in this service, I offer a 1-hour complimentary session at which point we will go over what this service entails, including the fee structure.
If you want your relationship to change and you want to reconnect with your partner, reach out now to set up a consultation. The best time to take the first step was yesterday, the next best time is right now!

I believe that therapy is one of the best investments and gifts that you can give yourself. Whether you are contemplating a life change, pondering ways to improve your mental health and wellness, or already in the midst of your next adventure, I am excited to help you process, explore, and energize you during every step of your journey.
I use an integrative approach that combines Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques to ensure that clients have countless resources while exploring personal growth. I also enjoy incorporating animal therapy, mindful movement, traveling, and the outdoors during sessions to inspire individuals.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about my clinical practice and how we can work together. Picking a therapist is a very personal choice. You need to feel that your therapist understands your experience, your challenges and moves you a new way of seeing yourself and your strengths.
I provide psychotherapy for teens, adults and couples. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, living with cancer (and other medical illnesses), and supporting parents during challenging times. I provide a non-judgmental, safe, warm and compassionate place to look at the challenges in your life: the depression that is keeping you isolated, the trauma that makes you withdraw and feel alone, the anxiety that won’t let you sleep at night. We will focus on building on your strengths, teaching you new coping skills, and actively witnessing the reworking of your story.
Thor is an integral part of my psychotherapy practice and is present during all my therapy sessions. He is a six-year-old yellow labrador/ golden retriever mix who has been bred and trained as a service dog by Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). Many clients choose to invite him up on the couch or have him sit close by during a session. It is very common for clients to say that having Thor in the room helps them trust, feel safe, and calm. Note: If you have allergies to dogs or a fear of dogs, we will not be the right choice for your therapy team.
I look forward to connecting with you!

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.
