** Accepting new clients** Please email me for more information. I am a provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Tufts, Network Health/Tufts, Cigna, and American Behavioral.

Therefore, I draw extensively from Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, as well as Integrated Mind/Body approaches, such as meditation and yoga. Additional modalities include Mindfulness Training, Relaxation Techniques, Radical Acceptance, Motivational Enhancement, Harm Reduction, and Twelve-Step Facilitation.

*Life Transitions (e.g. Divorce, Death, Health Issues, Parenting)
*Psycho-education around mental health issues, addiction, and the impact of these on the family
