My Approach to Helping

I offer careful assessment and evidence-based services to help clients in need. I offer many treatment modalities, working with individuals, groups, families, and couples depending upon the needs of the client. I have helped many clients deal with behavioral and psychiatric difficulties, including mood disorders, depression, trauma, and anxiety disorders. My specialties also include helping clients manage and cope with grief, family problems, parenting challenges, divorce, and related challenges.

I work with individuals across the lifespan (ages four and up). Most of my work relies on assessments and empirically supported treatments for problems that occur across the lifespan. I work with patients as part of my outpatient practice, as well as with those referred by a primary care provider. I work with children, adolescents, and adults. You can refer yourself or seek a referral from your doctor.

More Info About My Practice

I accept most insurances including Neighborhood Health Plan, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem, United Health Care, Harvard Pilgrim, Tufts Health Plan, Medicaid, Cigna, and Aetna.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I treat a wide range of presenting issues and have much training in treating anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, stress, disabilities, family problems, mood disorders, marital conflict, academic and occupational issues, and so on. I see children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in my practice.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy can help in a number of ways. For one, it can help you process a problem and develop healthy coping strategies to cope with it. Secondly it can help you manage your emotions and make sense of a presenting issue. It can also help you identify your core strengths in order to find purpose, meaning, and a sense of control over seemingly out of control stressors.
