Individual Psychotherapy with Adolescents, Individual & Relationship Psychotherapy with Adults
I am a licensed psychologist who enjoys working with adolescents, adults, and couples. I received my doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Antioch New England Graduate school in 2005. I completed my internship at the Veteran’s Administration Medical Center in Leeds, MA and a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, VT. I also have experience working in college counseling and community mental health.
I enjoy working with patients struggling with depression, anxiety, perinatal mood disorders, chronic and terminal illnesses, histories of sexual and/or physical abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder related to military service, addiction, and relationship issues. I also have extensive experience working with individuals and couples facing infertility, pregnancy loss, cancer, cystic fibrosis, and other serious illnesses.
My approach is tailored the needs of individual patients and emphasizes an integrated mix of psychodynamic, interpersonal, existential, and cognitive-behavioral theories and techniques. I believe that the relationship between the psychotherapist and patient is in itself mutative, and endeavor to form strong connections with the people I work with. I believe that psychotherapy assists people in alleviating suffering by learning to relate to others and themselves more flexibly, and by increasing their capacity for joy and gratitude.
