There are a lot of ways to practice therapy. One crucial aspect of any "good" therapy is that it helps you to expand your curiosity and open-mindedness about yourself - who you have been, who you are, and who you would like to be. Towards this aim, I listen. I try to remain open, to remember my own humanity and use it as a guide. My stance is collaborative and non-judgmental. I work hard to enter another's experience and know it from the inside, to engage deeply with what people bring to the therapy relationship - their struggles and questions, their fears, successes, and hopes, their own humanity.

I have a real appreciation for the mix of feelings one can have about making changes in life, particularly when the stakes feel high. Choosing to begin therapy can feel like quite a risk. My hope is that if you come to me for help, you will feel understood and accepted wherever you are in your process - and when needed, respectfully challenged - always in the service of supporting you in your goals and in living the life that will feel most satisfying for you.

More Info About My Practice

My fee is $150 for an individual session. I do offer a select number of sliding-scale slots for people who would be unable to afford therapy otherwise. Please do not hesitate to ask about this if you feel it would be helpful.

I also am in-network with all Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO plans. I will bill BCBS directly for you or any other insurance plan you might have (i.e. Harvard Pilgrim, Aetna, Tufts, etc) if you have an out-of-network benefit and would like to use your insurance to help cover the cost of your sessions.
