Services and philosophy


I offer therapy from an integrative perspective, using theories and techniques from psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, with a foundation in attachment theory and neurobiology.  My trauma-focused training includes Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, Internal Family Systems and Expressive Arts modalities, and I have experience in supporting addiction recovery through both AA/12-Step and SMART Recovery models.

Now offering the Safe 'n' Sound auditory intervention developed by Dr. Stephen Porges.  This is an adjunct intervention to aid success in therapy; it does not replace "talk therapy," but helps the person to engage more fully.  Research supports the use of SnS for children and adolescents on the autism spectrum, and it appears to show promise also for anxiety disorders and sleep issues.

Psychotherapy as I understand it is a collaborative process: You and I together will identify your goals and work to disentangle you from past experiences and present thoughts, freeing you to move forward with life.

My services are LGBTQA-friendly, poly-friendly, and kink-aware, and I am familiar with a variety of religious and spiritual traditions and equally comfortable with non-religious/humanistic views.

As of August 1, 2020, all services are provided remotely, via Telehealth.  I do not plan to see clients in person at any time in the near future.  Also, at present I have no regular time slots available for weekly or biweekly treatment, although I expect to have some space open in the fall.  I may have occasional irregular availability (e.g. for EMDR adjunct treatment).   Please call (617-520-4557) and leave a message to discuss your needs and availability; my email is not reliable.

Blue Cross/Blue Shield is the only insurance accepted; however, sliding-scale fees may be available to self-paying clients with limited income.

I look forward to meeting you! Please use the form below to contact me and schedule an appointment.
