I love working with high achieving mid-career professionals who tend towards perfectionism, long to form and sustain close relationships, and struggle with health challenges.

By bringing my full presence to our work, we'll engage both your high achieving self and your playful sides. I also hold space for you to explore the more hidden parts of self that don’t get the attention they truly deserve. In addition to the insight work, you'll learn skills to tone your nervous system making it more resilient to both medical stressors and the sometimes destabilizing impact friends or family members have on you. In addition, you'll get really good at identifying your needs and advocating for those needs in relationships with peers and medical providers.

Working together, you'll gain clarity and freedom to act in new ways. Mindfulness and attunement are integral to the process. You'll learn to see where you’re avoiding action and where you’re taking actions that are leading you down the same path of isolation and stuckness. EMDR fosters change by desensitizing your mind to disturbing stimuli and unburdening your nervous system of past ways of not being seen and heard, of feeling disconnected from your body and your emotions.

Self-discovery and self-recovery is a journey, it takes courage. Starting from birth we enter life with curiosity about ourselves and our capabilities; about the world around us, and how we fit in. Sometimes this journey is seamless, sometimes we get bumps and bruises. Yet regardless of where we are, we can all use some help on our Insightful Direction. It is my great privilege to work with anyone who is eager to understand why they are the way they are and what we can collaboratively work on to feel whole and understood.

Confronting intense and painful thoughts and emotions, and seeking guidance around parenting comes with vulnerability. It really helps to sit down with a professional who has concrete, evidence-based solutions, but offers them in a non-judgmental, supportive, client-driven way.

If you are looking for a therapist, you may be feeling confused, frustrated, isolated, scared and possibly in emotional pain. I aim to provide a safe space that is mutually created through a trusting connection built to hold whatever you bring into therapy. The therapy space is your space, so it is important to me that you feel comfortable and understood. I look forward to working together with you to grow, change, heal, and build a more satisfying and purposeful life.

Out-of-pocket-fees: $100 - $250 per session

I have been in private practice in the Boston/Cambridge area for 30 years working with adults and adolescents, couples and families. I work with clients utilizing a trauma informed lens as well as elements of liberation psychology and relational cultural theory. I feel all clinical work must begin with a thorough understanding of a client's multiple identities and how those identities interact within their communities and the larger culture. My work and my passion are embedded in a deep commitment to social justice.

Good therapy requires the trust that comes from feeling respected and understood. My clients - many of whom have histories of childhood trauma and stubborn, treatment resistant depression - tell me that they appreciate my calm, kind, straightforward style. I listen, talk, interpret, untangle, drawing on my professional and life experience to address your individual needs and priorities. Therapy is serious but it doesn’t have to be grim. Together we will identify goals, overcome obstacles and help you make positive change.

Every person has the strength and healing wisdom inside them to deal with life's greatest struggles. My job is to help you reconnect to those strengths and reinforce them so that you live your life in a way that is true to you. I view people not through a lens of pathology, but one of strength and optimism.

Therapy is not magic, but sometimes it can feel that way. What is important is the therapeutic match--it is a large predictor of therapeutic success. It is the safety and trust that allows for opening and insight. I encourage all potential clients to explore, shop around, really trust their own inner sense of what feels like a good place to land.

Please reach out to set up a free 15 minute consultation with me directly to discuss working together, or if you have any questions or are curious.
