My Approach to Helping

Do you overthink everything or are you too caught up in the “what ifs” in your head that you ensure you stay stuck? Are you too focused on making other people happy that you feel like you have lost track of yourself? Maybe you are your own worst enemy-- with a well-honed inner critic that likes to shit talk you and remind you of all the things you are messing up or getting wrong. You are doing your best- caffeine, multitasking, or white knuckling it may be getting you through (kind of), but at the end of the day you are exhausted and overwhelmed.

You want to feel connected, loved, and self-confident. You want to be able to sort through the current noise in your life and figure out what you want to let go of (such as beliefs or patterns you’ve held onto for some time) and what you want to keep and build on. I bring both humor and compassion to session.

More Info About My Practice

I help women in their 20s and 30s work on strategies for improving anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, as well as substance use concerns. I am down to earth, and active in session. I am an Instructor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School, and Staff Psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at MGH. I have over a decade of experience treating anxiety, depression, other mood disorders, as well as substance use concerns.
