cultivating curiosity and compassion, creating change

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 Background

I am a Massachusetts and New York licensed clinical psychologist. I am a staff psychologist, supervisor and consultant at the Human Relations Services, a community mental health agency based in Wellesley, Massachusetts. I practice primarily via teletherapy with occasional in person sessions available in Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts or on site with organizations. Before relocating 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 received an undergraduate degree in psychology from Princeton University and then went on for a doctorate in clinical psychology at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. My doctoral training included working at several New York City institutions, including Bellevue, Beth Israel and St. Luke’s Roosevelt hospitals as well as multiple local university counseling centers and psychoanalytic training institutes. My postdoctoral fellowship at the William Alanson White Institute also provided specialized training in working with eating disorders, compulsions and addictions, adolescents and individuals who identify as lesbian/gay/queer/transgender. I have written and presented at professional conferences on the topics of substance abuse, behavioral addictions, psychological symptoms related to dermatological conditions, camp-based leadership programs and psychotherapy with artists.

 I co-edited the landmark textbook Behavioral Addictions: Criteria, Evidence and Treatment with Kenneth Paul Rosenberg, M.D. for Elsevier Academic Press. Services Provided Psychotherapy
I provide psychotherapy for adolescents and adults. My exposure in training and practice to a variety of techniques means I can work with you to personalize treatment that serves your challenges, goals and needs. I pull from psychodynamic, family systems, cognitive-behavioral and motivational change theory. Multicultural understanding is a meaningful part of who I am and is always a lens I am considering in my work. 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 and how these issues affect families and family members. My practice includes working with individuals, couples, parents and families to support them through challenges, losses, transitions and/or developmental milestones. Often I counsel people when they are dealing with challenging transitions in their life such as adjusting to a new life phase, questioning their sexual or gender identity or coming out, changing careers, grappling with infertility, managing the turbulence of parenthood or adjusting to life in the context of relationship loss, divorce or bereavement.
