I am an interpersonal therapist. What does this mean? It means I am attuned to the relationship we develop together in the room, as we explore thoughts and feelings that occur in the here-and-now, and attend also to the there-and-then. You are more than a diagnosis: you are YOU.
I am a Harm Reduction Therapist. What does this mean? It means that I work with you to increase your safety in matters of substance use and other risks. I collaborate with you on finding modes of getting safer and healthier in ways that are right for you. I am a supporter of Moderation Management, SMART Recovery, and a Life Process Model. If abstinence is right for you, I support whatever means you use to get there.
I am a humanistic and existential therapist. What does this mean? In addition to my psychodynamic training, I am attuned to concerns about meaning and mortality that affect us all throughout the life-span. I am not driven by the categories constructed by the DSM.
I am a Certified Group Psychotherapist, through the International Society for Certification of Group Psychotherapists. What does this mean? I am aware of social, biological and psychological contexts that make us who we are. I lead groups because I find the interactions and collective experience in groups to be endlessly fascinating and helpful, creating bonds in powerful ways. In groups, I am not the one expert in the room! To learn more about group psychotherapy, follow this link.
I am a member of the Board of Northeastern Society of Group Psychotherapy and have been dedicated to the organizations efforts to grow in diversity and inclusion.
