Sorry! I'm not taking new patients right now.
I see adults of all ages, individually. I do not see couples, families, or children.
I am especially interested in working with those who have experienced racism, homophobia, disability discrimination, and other forms of oppression. My practice is sex-positive and kink- and poly-friendly.
Generally, my style is interactive and collaborative. I use a psychodynamic and relational approach, with a side of mindfulness.
In other words, I can help you understand how your past and unconscious experiences -- especially your formative relationships -- influence your present. This understanding allows you to be more conscious of your thoughts, feelings, and behavior as they happen.
This consciousness can help you have options. When you are able to notice things about yourself, you can respond. Do you change something? Accept it as it is? Cope with feelings about not being able to change something?
All of this occurs in the context of the relationship we forge in therapy. I see the relationship as creating a lab of sorts; it is a place to try new things and have new experiences. It is also a safe space to understand all the old baggage you've been carrying around with you. I can help you carry it until you don't need me anymore.
I am a licensed psychologist in Massachusetts. I hold a doctorate in psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in the San Francisco Bay Area and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
In the past, I have worked in schools and community mental health settings, and I completed my postdoctoral training at the Stone Center Counseling Service at Wellesley College. I have also previously worked as a staff psychologist at the Harvard University Mental Health Service.
