Change is hard. People often seek psychotherapy around change. They want to change. People in their lives want them to change. Or some life change is affecting them in a meaningful way. Often, it’s a combination. I can help you sort through these challenges when we work together in therapy. My range of training and experience give me the tools to guide you through the process of change, enhance your coping skills and cultivate the curiosity to understand the implications of your past, manage your current situation, make meaning of your thoughts and feelings and strengthen yourself for the future.
I specialize in the treatment of behavioral and substance addictions, eating disorders and compulsions. In my practice I also support individuals, couples, parents and families through transitions related to developmental milestones such as sending children to camp, or helping adolescents and young adults adjust to college and graduate school. Often I counsel people when they are dealing with challenging transitions in their life such as questioning their sexual or gender identity or coming out, changing careers, grappling with infertility, managing the turbluence of parenthood or adjusting to life in the context of relationship loss/divorce or bereavement.
Before a recent relocation to the metrowest suburbs of Boston, I was in private practice on the Upper West Side of New City, a staff psychologist at Upper East Health (an integrative addiction psychiatry practice), a founding partner of Camp Sisters Consulting, a consultant to various medical practices and healthcare companies and a published academic author.
I am able to work with you, your family or organization in my office, on site or via teletherapy or phone consultation, when appropriate.
