I have spent my years as a therapist working with adolescents, adults and families, specializing in substance abuse and issues of addiction, including depression and anxiety. After graduating from Lesley University with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I worked in the field of dual diagnosis, helping people understand the importance of addressing the symptoms of depression and anxiety that get in the way of living a productive life.
In my new, private practice, I employ psychodynamic therapy, with a major emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I concentrate on the Stages of Change model to help people identify unhelpful behaviors that may be getting in the way of living a productive and rewarding life. Once identified, we can work together to create a treatment plan that will help you reach your personal goals.
Most important, I believe in the theory of "unconditional, positive, regard" and that the therapeutic relationship is the most important part of psychotherapy.
Change is always possible.
