Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I am a licensed psychotherapist in the Boston area specializing in individual therapy and marital and relationship counseling.
I realize you have many choices in selecting a psychotherapist and I'm pleased to have your consideration as you embark on a journey to your better life. Therapy, also known as psychotherapy and counseling, is a useful tool in addressing anxiety, depression and difficult life circumstances.
Choosing a therapist can be an intimidating process. There are many good and qualified therapists in the Boston area. The challenge is finding the right therapist for you. Most folks have a good gauge on their mental health status. They know when they are suffering from anxiety or depression. They also know when their relationships are suffering and that seeking therapy for family counseling or relationship counseling can be a positive step forward. In other words, trust yourself when it feels like it's time to seek out therapy.
One of the most important indicators of successful therapy is a feeling of connection with the therapist. If the connection is non-existent, strained or awkward, you are not going to get much from the experience. You are choosing to share your most personal thoughts and experiences with, at least initially, a virtual stranger. The key is feeling comfortable and supported while going through the counseling process.
My goal is to make my clients feel secure and at ease in therapy. I make it a priority to demystify the psychotherapy experience. I offer an honest and open approach to insight and healing. My clients describe me as down-to-earth and easy to talk to. However, they know I will challenge them to look beyond their emotional comfort zones to find meaning and satisfaction in their lives.
The relationship between therapist and client is like no other. In therapy, you may find yourself revealing things about your thoughts and experiences you never thought you would. To that end, I urge you to find a therapist who fits your needs, style and personality.
With graduate-level training from Harvard University and Boston College, I use personal, professional and clinical skills to create a safe and relaxed therapy environment for my clients.
In addition, my clients know they can trust my clinical judgment. They value my honest assessments about their issues and experiences. Your relationship with your therapist is a unique one and should be a collaborative experience as you work together to make the changes you'd like to see in your life.
One of my greatest professional rewards is seeing the success, changes and growth my clients experience through therapy.
