If you have made it to this page, you or someone you love would likely benefit from support or guidance to help make changes, feel more fulfilled, or deal with the day to day stresses that life can throw at us. Taking steps to make a change can be really intimidating and having someone be an active support and guide during this process can be exceptionally helpful. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as other evidence-based behavior change approaches, including Motivational Interviewing, Interpersonal Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. What that means is that I will be non-judgmental and active in session to help you explore aspects of yourself and your current experience as well as assist you in developing skills and approaches to better manage your emotions, improve relationships, change unhealthy behavior patterns, or deal with life changes or transitions.

More Info About My Practice

I am an Instructor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School, and an Assistant in Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at MGH. I have nearly a decade of experience treating addiction and dual diagnosis, in adolescent and young adults (14-26), as well specialized training working with parents and other family members of individuals with substance use disorders.
