My Approach to Helping

In my 30 plus years as a therapist, I've been privileged to work with and learn from hundreds of couples, families, and individuals as they tackled various challenges.
My clients emphasize my down-to-earth nature, and seeing me as human makes it easier for them to open up.

Every person brings a different story and their own set of circumstances to therapy, but a trusting therapeutic connection is the key to progress in the work we do together.

In addition to my work as a psychotherapist, I have worked as a career coach to MBA students and alumni at Harvard Business School. This work has helped me nurture my understanding of the connection between work and psychological well-being. I have also served as a teaching fellow in the psychology department at Harvard, teaching classes such as human sexuality and the psychology of happiness.

More Info About My Practice

My experience means that I have been able to work with people from all ages and stages to achieve more satisfying lives and relationships. I'd love to speak with you to see how I can help you with your concerns.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Sadly, it is not uncommon for someone to have had an unhelpful experience with therapy. There are so many types of psychotherapy and of course, each therapist has a unique style of working which is not going to be effective with everyone. I generally suggest that people try a few sessions to see if it is helpful and see if they can feel comfortable with the therapist and the process. Also, if they have had prior negative experiences, it's best to let me know so we can work together to help address those concerns.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

While I don't think that one needs to have experienced the same exact issue to be empathetic and effective, my own life experiences have certainly seasoned me as a person and probably have made me a better therapist. Over the years, I have become even less judgmental and more compassionate about how hard life can get sometimes. Further, I have also experienced both personally and professionally the enormous human capacity for resilience and healing. These experiences have enhanced my capacity to be calm, courageous and hopeful when sitting with people experiencing serious challenges.
