My Approach to Helping

My approach is an eclectic one that allows me to tailor therapy to meet my client's specific needs. I believe that change in everyone is possible and that your path to healing can start today. I have been in private practice for over ten years, and have helped thousands of women in both the Boston area and Northern California. Women I see are often wanting help with transitions in life, like getting married, or becoming a new mom.

More Info About My Practice

I also run Daring Way Weekend Retreats based on the work of Brene Brown a few times a year. The Daring Way is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brene Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams and organizational leaders. During this amazing weekend, we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love watching my clients come to their own insights about their lives and their problems, and I love seeing them develop a way to make changes. I really feel that my role is to shine a flashlight in the dark corners and help clients discover what needs to happen for effective change. Above all, I believe that you are the expert on you, and I'm a guide to help you read your own manual.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Look, the magic of therapy is in the relationship between you and the therapist.

I think you should interview a few therapists to make sure you find someone you click with. Everyone is different and is looking for a unique fit! So please be sure the therapist you choose is someone you feel you can build trust with and grow with. If you don't "click", it's not going to work.
