My Approach to Helping

In my counseling work I provide psychotherapy for adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
My relational and existential approach helps me understand and connect with my clients. I believe that the intent of therapy is exchanging "symptoms" for "coping skills." To accomplish this transformation, we need to understand our past to shed light on who we are in the present, where we have the power to focus on present issues and make changes that will influence our future. I see psychotherapy as a learning process. I bring my knowledge and understanding of psychological phenomena to bear on my clients' life experiences. In addition to psychotherapy work, I'm an adjunct faculty at Lesley University, where I teach Child Psychology. I have completed my psychoanalysis fellowship with the IPE, which is affiliated with the New York University School of Medicine.
