Who I Serve

If you're feeling off balance - challenged by life's transitions, significant loss, difficult emotions, feelings of confusion, or relationship problems - therapy can help. My view towards therapy is “there is more right with you, than wrong with you." This was said by Jon Kabat Zinn, an early champion of mindfulness in the U.S., and it points to our inherent strengths. I believe we all have the capacity to live with a sense of peace and calm within ourselves and with others. I also believe it’s hard to make changes alone. We can’t think our way out of problems but most of us spend a lot of time trying. Our work together will be focused on the therapeutic relationship and use concepts from mindfulness, existentialism, behaviorism, neuroscience and psychoanalysis. Together we find what works best for you. I bring an open and genuine interest about you and your experiences. I will listen and empathize but also challenge you in appropriate and helpful ways. We are social creatures; positive change can happen in the context of a caring, emotionally supportive relationship. My Lexington office is in the town center, on an MBTA bus line, with parking close by. When you're ready, call me to find if we are a good fit to work together in therapy. I look forward to meeting you.
