Not Accepting New Patients



I have a direct, active style, and will work collaboratively to tackle whatever challenges brought you into therapy. We will find more successful ways to cope with and adapt to the difficulties you are experiencing.

When I work with you, I will ask questions and make practical suggestions that will enable you to make the positive life changes you sought by seeking therapy for yourself. Primarily, I use what you bring up in our sessions as material for our work together. I can make you aware of and help you change your thinking patterns and/or teach you some mindfulness practices.  I will also use your memory of events that happened in the past, what is going on in your current life, your dreams and unconscious slips, and our interactions as a means of helping you achieve your therapeutic goals.

If you think we might be a good match, please do get in touch with me, by either calling (617) 876-6535 or emailing me at I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you haven’t heard from me in 24 hours, please try to contact me again.
